Lily of the Valley
Queen Lyrics

I am forever searching high and low
But why does everyone tell me 'no'?
Neptune of the seas, an answer for me please
The lily of the valley doesn't know

I lie in wait with open eyes
I carry on through stormy skies
I follow every course; my kingdom for a horse
But each time I grow old
Serpent of the Nile, relieve me for a while
And cast me from your spell, and let me go

Messenger from seven seas has flown
To tell the king of Rhye he's lost his throne
Wars will never cease
Is there time enough for peace?
The lily of the valley doesn't know

I remember the first time I listened to Queen.

My grandpa had lent me his vinyl, and told me “Listen to this. It is of a famous rock band” I did as he told me to.

I started playing it, and it was amazing. I still remember that day as if it was yesterday, but this song caught my eye. This masterpiece.

It was amazing. The lyrics, Freddie’s voice (specially at 0:58. At that part, he had me in tears). It gives such an intense feeling, I just don’t have words to explain it.

I then went running to my Grandpa’s house and told him “Its amazing. I have no words”

I was seven years old, and he actually told me to keep it. He actually gave me all his vinyls. I have to thank him for introducing me to this beautiful band. Fan since 2009!

This song and "Nevermore" are just the best. Pure brilliance, pure genius. And not known to many. Hidden treasures.


100% agree! 😊


@Gray Wolf 1521 That's one of my favorites, it's so pretty.

@Charlie C Yeah... those three short songs. For longer underrated song I appreciate "Teo Torriate" very much. That japanese language song is becoming one of my favorite recently, although I had listened it nearly 40 years ago.
