Song Lyric Sunday: pretending.

This week HelenVahdati in partnership with the Simply Marquessa, has given us the theme of pretending.

So I thought about this and Queen, in particular Freddie Mercury but the whole group too were expert at pretending all was fine. Freddie, one of the most talented and glorous showman hide his aids with a huge show of talent. 

The song I have chosen is very apt for my life right now. The show must go on. 

A to Z Lyrics.

The Show Must Go On”


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?

Show must go on.
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 must be warmer now.
I’ll soon be turning
‘Round the corner now.

Outside the dawn is breaking,
But inside in the dark I’m aching to be free.

Show must go on.
Show must go on.
Inside my heart is breaking.
My make-up may be flaking,
But my smile still stays on.

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

Show must go on.
Show must go on.
I’ll face it with a grin.
I’m never giving in—
Oh—with the show.

I’ll top the bill,
I’ll overkill.
I have to find the will to carry on with the show.
On with the show.

Show must go on.

Man:  I love the colour is it blue?

Woman: Well they call it Azure.

Man:  Do you know this road well ?

This road that leads right to my door.

Man: Did you get all your presents the shops are such a crush?

Woman: I did, I even got my sister that amazing eye make up brush.

Man : And the festive food is that all in hand?

Woman: Yes and a good thing too as I am cooking this year as planned .

Man : Look who are all those people talking to the police?

Woman : OMG That is my family they’ve  all come out even brought my baby niece.

They may of heard the noise of the crash

My husband does look pale why is he acting so rash.

I think I had better talk to him before he starts to cry!

 Man :, hang on my friend you have to come with me………..

Woman : WHY?

Man :  You have crashed the car, my dear and you are about to die.

Woman : Surely you are joking I am standing here with you,

Sorry it has been good to chat but I have so much to do.

Man : Tell me what is the last thing you remember before our chat?

Woman : Well I was concentrating very hard because of all the snow

I had to swerve to miss the cat. It all went black  and then, I just don’t know.

Woman : OH! my what a commotion they are all in tears

Right outside the garden gate the neighbours have not had so much to look at for years.

Woman : Help I feel so cold and so very weak ,

Is that me inside the car, I just look asleep.

Man :  Come my friend I am with you.I shall guide you now that your earthly life is at an end.

Woman : Will they all recover will they manage without me .

Man : Don’t worry they will all cope, you can even watch and see.

Now just relax and lean your head on me, 

I have seen you’ve always been kind and you always talk with me.

Woman: I really do not want to leave them are you really sure.

Man: I am my dear friend now come with me just through this open door.
