Man, I'm so sorry I've been gone for so long.  I've been without a keyboard on my laptop for nearly a year, and it's sucked.  But we're back, and listening to even more music! 

Artist:  Queen
Title:  Too Much Love Will Kill You
Comments:  If you listen to this, Freddie Mercury's voice is amazing.  It soars through this song.  This is off of the Made In Heaven album, which was recorded in the few months before Freddie Mercury's death, and it's difficult to believe that he died not long after recording this song.  His voice is strong and resonant throughout the piece, and it makes me cry every time that I listen to it.  Goosebumps, kind of thing. 

This song makes me think of every couple that I've ever heard of, or alluded to, or dreamed about, and it makes me think of love, gut-churning, tongue-twisting, heart-beating-out-of-your-chest emotion.

I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone
For much too long
I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
I've been looking back to find
Where I went wrong

Too much love will kill you
If you can't make up your mind
Torn between the lover
And the love you leave behind
You're headed for disaster
'cos you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you
Every time

I'm just the shadow of the man I used to be
And it seems like there's no way out of this for me
I used to bring you sunshine
Now all I ever do is bring you down
How would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can't you see that it's impossible to choose
No there's no making sense of it
Every way I go I'm bound to lose

Too much love will kill you
Just as sure as none at all
It'll drain the power that's in you
Make you plead and scream and crawl
And the pain will make you crazy
You're the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you
Every time

Too much love will kill you
It'll make your life a lie
Yes, too much love will kill you
And you won't understand why
You'd give your life, you'd sell your soul
But here it comes again
Too much love will kill you
In the end...
In the end.
