Just been listening to Brian may's 'My Boy', from the cd 'Lullabies With A Difference' (1998). IMO this is among Brian's best slower songs and I'm not ashamed to say that it always brings a tear to my eye (and I have two glass eyes, so that's some achievement). Wonder why it never made it on to a solo album? I guess it's not really in the style that Queen took from the 1980s onwards, but it could've worked on a solo album. Lyrics borrowed from YouTube, where you can find the whole song. 

Lyrics:

Strange how soon the party's over
I should know by now

My hand no longer guides your footsteps
Now you guide your own

And all that's left is the sound of your voice
And your face as you were on the screen

Hush, don't you cry
There'll be no pain
The bad wolf is gone
He'll have no part of our game

All too soon the dream world's fading
Says farewell

Since my boy became a man

Don't make it too soon
My small boy

I believe this was written around the era of The Game/Hot Space - anyone can confirm this?

Circumstantial evidence suggests so. The intro to the song is the same intro that Brian played before "Save Me" during live performances.

(a very explicit homosexual sentence)

Don't make it too soon
My small boy

I got my proofs...

It's a lifestyle choice: don't hate me because I'm different...
