Here I stand (here I stand)
Look around around around around around
But you won't see me (but you won't see me)

Now I'm here (now I'm here)
Now I'm there (now I'm there)
I'm just a
Just a new man
Yes you made me live again, wow

A baby I was when you took my hand
And the light of the night burned bright
The people all stared didn't understand
But you knew my name on sight

Ooh whatever came of you and me
America's new bride to be, ooh, don't worry baby I'm safe and sound

Down in the dungeon just peaches 'n' me

Don't I love her so
Yes you made me live again, yeah

Yeah, ooh, a thin moon me in a smoke-screen sky
Where the beams of your lovelight chase
Don't move, don't speak, don't feel no pain
With the rain running down my face

Your matches still light up the sky
And many a tear lives on in my eye

Down in the city just Hoople 'n' me
Don't I love him so
Ooh, don't I love him so

Whatever comes of you and me
I love to leave my memory with you

Now I'm here (now I'm here)
Think I'll stay around around around around around around
Down in the city justa you 'n' me (down in the city justa you 'n' me)
Don't I love you so
Go, go, go, little Queenie

    General CommentBrian May has unraveled the song many times before. The song is about his experiences during their first visit to the US when they were supporting Mott The Hoople. He apparently met a girl named "Peaches" at a club called Dungeon. You can find the story on Brian May's website (if it's still online)

    General CommentPeaches is the elegant and captivating Debra Vidacovich, wife of famous jazz drummer Johnny Vidacovich. The Dungeon is a rock and roll bar on Toulouse St, near Bourbon Street, in New Orleans, Louisiana. In the 70's, it was a private key club that attracted everyone from Led Zeppelin to rowdy bikers.

    General CommentListening to this after "Lilly of the Valley", it makes perfect sense. "Now I'm Here" is their progression to more hardcore rock and a departure from the fantasy stuff from their earlier albums. "Stone Cold Crazy" comes right after this.

    General CommentPeaches was a record store in the 80s. His hairdresser wore a T-shirt depicting the logo ‘Peaches Records and Tapes’ across the front. Freddy would make up nicknames off the top of his head for people. Maybe in his quick writing of the song he referenced his hairdressers shirt and the many times backstage he would do his hair.
