About Love Of My Life

"Love of My Life" is a song by the British rock band Queen from their 1975 album A Night at the Opera. The ballad was written by Freddie Mercury, dedicating it to Mary Austin, his ex-girlfriend. After Queen performed the song in South America in 1981, the version from their live album Live Killers reached number 1 in the singles chart in Argentina and Brazil, and stayed in the charts in Argentina for an entire year. Freddie Mercury wrote it on the piano and guitar first, and Brian May rearranged the song for acoustic 12-string guitar for live performances, also lowering the key by a minor third. May contributed occasional guitar phrases to the original recording and played the swooping harp glissandos by pasting together multiple takes of single chords. The song is an example of Mercury's familiarity with rubato phrasing, showcasing his classical piano influences, notably by Chopin and Beethoven. With its similar lyrical theme, the Roger Taylor penned single "These Are the Days of Our Lives” would later hearken back to "Love of My Life", twice using the line "I still love you". At the end of "These Are the Days of Our Lives", Mercury simply speaks those words, as he would often do in live versions of "Love of My Life".“Love of My Life” is written about Mary Austin-the true love of Freddie Mercury’s life. Written entirely by Freddie Mercury himself, this song is a confessional on his love and affection towards Mary Austin.

Love of my life, you've hurt me
You've broken my heart and now you leave me
Love of my life, can't you see?
Bring it back, bring it back
Don't take it away from me, because you don't know
What it means to me

Love of my life, don't leave me
You've taken my love (all of my love) and now desert me
Love of my life, can't you see?
(Please bring it back) bring it back, bring it back (back)
Don't take it away from me (take it away from me)
Because you don't know (oh oh oh know means to me)
What it means to me

Who will remember
When this is blown over
And everything's all by the way (oh yeah)
When I grow older
I will be there at your side to remind you
How I still love you (I still love you)

Oh, back, hurry back
Please bring it back home to me
Because you don't know what it means to me
Love of my life
Love of my life
Oh, oh
