The Show Must Go On
Queen + Paul Rodgers Lyrics

Empty spaces, what are we living for?
Abandoned places, I guess we know the score
On and on
Does anybody know what we are looking for?
Another hero, another mindless crime
Behind the curtain, in the pantomime
Hold the line
Does anybody want to take it anymore?

The show must go on
The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

Whatever happens, I'll leave it all to chance
Another heartache, another failed romance
On and on
Does anybody know what we are living for?
I guess I'm learning (I'm learning), I must be warmer now
I'll soon be turning (turning, turning, turning), 'round the corner now
Outside the dawn is breaking
But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free

The show must go on
The show must go on, yeah, yeah
Ooh, inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

Yeah, yeah
Oh, whoa, whoa
Oh, whoa

My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
Fairy tales of yesterday will grow but never die
I can fly, my friends

The show must go on, yeah
The show must go on
I'll face it with a grin
I'm never givin' in
On with the show

Ooh, I'll top the bill, I'll overkill
I have to find the will to carry on
(On with the show, on with the show)
(The show must go on, go on)

Freddie was Freddie. Paul is Paul. It's a pleasure to listen them both.


Freddie's song reminds me his last will and Paul's gives me powerful energy.


Adam is Adam too

@Mini Cooper Trooper Adam Lambert sucks balls, I would listen to this guy in Freddie's place any day...... He's slower paced but has Freddie's passion and emotion..... Lambert was just a cheap replacement to keep the gigs coming. Some bands like Motorhead realized that when Lemmy passed, Motorhead should be laid to rest as well so as to not tarnish a well deserved legacy and go out on top.....let's face it, who could you possibly get to replace Lemmy's one of a kind voice and singing style and do the music justice? can't. Queen should have died with Freddie...... It would have been the best tribute that they could have givin him. Sometime money rules over good judgement and morals.

Paul Rogers was a really good singer with queen. Way better than Adam Lambert but Adam is still amazing but Paul is better. You know what i mean.

Павел Рожков

Chuck Norris is so cool that sings with Queen

Lazaro Millares

Jajaja . The ironic is that Paul is Black Belt in Karate. Well Done.
