I don't want my freedom There's no reason for living with a broken heart
This is a tricky situation I've only got myself to blame It's just a simple fact of life It can happen to any one
You win, you lose It's a chance you have to take with love Oh yeah, I fell in love But now you say it's over and I'm falling apart
Yeah yeah It's a hard life To be true lovers together To love and live forever in each others hearts It's a long hard fight To learn to care for each other To trust in one another right from the start When you're in love
I try and mend the broken pieces Oh, I try to fight back the tears Oh, they say it's just a state of mind But it happens to everyone
How it hurts (yeah) deep inside (oh yeah) When your love has cut you down to size Life is tough on your own Now I'm waiting for something to fall from the skies I'm waiting for love
Yes it's a hard life Two lovers together To love and live forever in each others hearts It's a long hard fight To learn to care for each other To trust in one another right from the start When you're in love
Yes it's a hard life In a world that's filled with sorrow There are people searching for love in every way It's a long hard fight But I'll always live for tomorrow I'll look back at myself and say I did it for love (oh) Yes I did it for love For love Oh I did it for love

Eda from TurkeyIt's a hard life, thank God there is Queen music to make it easier! This song is so beautiful and powerful. Although I love as always Freddie's videos I can not understand what he meant by this. I wish someone can tell me.
Abraxas from CroatiaSo deep...so emotional...so lifelike and true..copy paste to all of us...so peronal and "global" ( to mainkind )..we all can identify with these words and emotions THANK YOU FREDDIE for this invaluable..priceless gift(s)!! .. "This is a tricky situation I've only got myself to blame It's just a simple fact of life It can happen to any one..
LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU SOOOO MUCH! Sanja... from Zagreb. Croatia
Margaret from Terre Haute IndianaLove this song LOVE FREDDIE can see why Roger hated his role in the video.
Kat from Adelaide, AustraliaThis was apparently Freddie's favourite song that Queen did. I love it too, Freddie! Love the over the top theatrics of the film clip too.
Mil from Milan, --One of my favourite Queen songs!
Dave from London, EnglandThe intro to this song (until "with a broken heart") uses the tune from 'Vesti la Giubba', an aria from 'I Pagliacci'. Check out http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Ky271W94VHA at about 2:08 for Pavarotti singing it - you can sing "I don't want my freedom / There's no reason for living" along with him!!
Lindsay from Coweta, OkI absolutely love this song. It's sad and sweet and absolutely true.
