Great Song Lyrics: Show Must Go On by Queen

The music and lyrics for this song are sad, but in songs there’s often beauty in sadness. I’m also reminded of the hope the world’s looking for and can’t find in material possessions or religion.

Empty spaces – what are we living for
Abandoned places – I guess we know the score
On and on, does anybody know what we are looking for

Another hero, another mindless crime
Behind the curtain, in the pantomime
Hold the line, does anybody want to take it anymore

The show must go on
The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

Whatever happens, I’ll leave it all to chance
Another heartache, another failed romance
On and on, does anybody know what we are living for

I guess I’m learning, I must be warmer now
I’ll soon be turning, round the corner now
Outside the dawn is breaking
But inside in the dark I’m aching to be free

The show must go on
The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
Fairytales of yesterday will grow but never die
I can fly – my friends

The show must go on
The show must go on
I’ll face it with a grin
I’m never giving in
On – with the show –

I’ll drop the bill, I’ll overkill
I have to find the will to carry on
On with the –
On with the show –
The show must go on
