Ooh
Take a piece of my heart (ooh)
Take a piece of my soul (ooh)
Let me live
Oh yeah

Why don't you take another little piece of my heart
Why don't you take it and break it
And tear it all apart
All I do is give
And all you do is take
Baby why don't you give me
A brand new start

So let me live (so let me live)
Let me live (leave me alone)
Let me live, oh baby
And make a brand new start

Why don't you take another little piece of my soul
Why don't you shape it and shake it
'Til you're really in control
All you do is take
And all I do is give
All that I'm askin'
Is a chance to live

(So let me live) so let me live
(Leave me alone) let me live, let me live
Why don't you let me make a brand new start

Yeah, and it's a long hard struggle, yeah yeah
But you can always depend on me
And if you're ever in trouble, hey
You know where I will be

Why don't you take another little piece of my life
Why don't you twist it and turn it
And cut it like a knife
All you do is live
All I do is die
Why can't we just be friends
Stop livin' a lie

So let me live (so let me live)
Let me live (leave me alone)
Please let me live
(Why don't you live a little)
Oh yeah baby
(Why don't you give a little love)
Go for it baby

Let me live
Please let me live
Oh yeah baby, let me live
And make a brand new start
Let me live (let me live)
Ooh yeah (let me live)
Come on (let me live ooh)

In your heart, oh baby
(Take another piece, take another piece)
(Take another piece, take another piece)
Ooh please let me live
(Take another piece, take another piece)
(Take another piece, take another piece)
Why don't you take another 
Take another piece of my, piece of my heart
Oh yeah baby
Make a brand new start
Oh, baby baby
Baby baby
Baby baby
Baby baby
All you do is take, take
Let me live
(Ooh, let me live)
Ooh yeah let
Let me live

Queen

Queen are a British rock band formed in London in 1971, originally consisting of the late Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano), Brian May (guitar, vocals), John Deacon (bass guitar), and Roger Taylor (drums, vocals). Queen's earliest works were influenced by progressive rock, but the band gradually ventured into more conventional and radio-friendly works, incorporating more diverse and innovative styles in their music. After the late and great Freddie Mercury died, Queen continued to tour with multiple acts including Paul Rodgers, and currently, Adam Lambert. more »
