Song Lyric Sunday: Lily of the Valley

This  weeks   Song Lyric  Sunday , inspired  by Helen Espinosa  at  This thing  called  life one word at a  time   is  The  Lilley  of  the Valley   by  Queen.

Rules  and Pingback.

I have  always  loved  Queen from  the very  first time I heard  them sing The Seven Seas Of Rye. I have  every  single  Album  they  ever made  and  my  one  huge  regret is  that I never  saw  them live!

queen_sheer_heart_attackLily  of  the Valley  is  off of  their  Sheer  Heart Attack  Album :

Sheer Heart Attack was the third studio album by British rock band Queen, released in November 1974. It was produced by the band and Roy Thomas Baker and distributed by EMI in the United Kingdom, and Elektra in the United States.

Why do I love  this  track  so much? It reminds  me of  my life … I am forever  searching  high and low! I never  find  the  answers.

 

“Lily Of The Valley”

I am forever searching high and low
But why does everybody tell me no
Neptune of the seas
Have you an answer for me please
And the lily of the valley doesn’t knowI 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 goMessenger 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
But the lily of the valley doesn’t knowWritten by  Freddy  Mercury

    Yay! I saw Queen (sorry) at Southampton Gaumont in 1975 on the A Night At The Opera tour. Amazed. Love their early albums and introduced to them in time to only have two albums to catch up on. Thank you G:)
