Hammer To Fall
Queen + Paul Rodgers Lyrics


Yeah
Here we stand or here we fall
History won't care at all
Make the bed, light the light
Lady Mercy won't be home tonight

You don't waste no time at all
Don't hear the bell but you answer the call
It comes to you as to us all
Yeah, we're just waiting for the hammer to fall, yeah

Oh every night, and every day
A little piece of you is falling away
But lift your face the Western way
Build your muscles as your body decays, yeah

Tow the line and play their game
Yeah, let the anesthetic cover it all
'Til one day they call your name
You know it's time for the hammer to fall

Rich or poor or famous
For your truth it's all the same
(Oh no, oh no)
Oh, lock your door but rain is pouring
Through your window pane
(Oh no)
Hey yeah, baby, now your struggle's all in vain, yeah

For who grew up tall and proud
In the shadow of the Mushroom Cloud
Convinced our voices can't be heard
We just wanna scream it louder and louder and louder

What the hell are we fighting for?
Ah, just surrender and it won't hurt at all
You just got time to say your prayers
Yeah, while you're waiting for the hammer to, hammer to fall

Hey, yes
Let's get on the floor, yeah
Hammer
You know
Hammer to fall

Yeah

Hey, woo hoo
Ha ha, ha ha

I've been waiting for the hammer to fall
Give it to me one more time

It's a shame that Paul left the band, I like his style and voice

Mr Farenheit

@Aaron Koeppe they started to lose the connection they started with and has frequent arguments

john d

@Aaron Koeppe May said, Lambert will allow Queen to reach younger audience, that's why they decided to replace Paul

Aaron Koeppe

Why did he leave

Bob Man

Yeah, especially if you compare it to that squeaky Lambert's voice...

sammcc102

they aint trying to copy freddie so in my opinion this is top notch

Tim Sears

you mean Paul Rogers isnt trying to copy Freddie...not Roger Taylor & Brian May..

chris rowley

this version just shows how good brian may is - he re worked a true rock classic and made a power ballad. freddie would have sung it this way too.

Tim Sears

This version?? every version Brian does of this song is amazing ...why?? because he originally played on it ...thats why.....Freddie & Paul ...2 different singers ...so Freddie could not have sang it the same way..

TheGraveDolls

Paul Rodgers is an incredible singer, just listen to Free and Bad Co. And this vid is just amazing!
