The Show Must Go On Lyrics

[Verse 1: Freddie Mercury]
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?

[Chorus: Freddie Mercury]
The show must go on
The show must go on, yeah
Inside my heart is breaking
My makeup may be flaking
But my smile, still, stays on

[Verse 2: Freddie Mercury]
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

[Chorus: Freddie Mercury]
The show must go on
The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My makeup may be flaking
But my smile, still, stays on

[Bridge: Freddie Mercury]
My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
Fairy tales of yesterday, grow but never die
I can fly, my friends

[Chorus: Freddie Mercury]
The show must go on
The show must go on
I'll face it with a grin
I'm never giving in
On with the show

[Outro: Freddie Mercury]
I'll top the bill
I'll overkill
I have to find the will to carry on
On with the show
The show must go on
The show must go on
