"when you feel like you can't go on..."

I think it is part of a middle eight, very rocky Queen, 7 Seas of Rye sounding and probably from the 70s.

Please help, I thought I was pretty au fait with Queen songs.

Thanks

The only one I can think of with those lyrics (well near) is How can I go - Freddie and Monserrat Caballe :D
But that one REALLY dont sound like SSOR lol
Would be great if someone solves this mystery cause that would mean I have missed one of Queen's songs :S
You sure those were the lyrics?

Sounds like Led Zeppelin's In The Light to me.

Can you provide more information? Or More lyrics from the song? Are you sure that the line is correct?

It isn't Long Away. I honestl;y don't know what it is. I would really like to know though. Good question.

"The Hero, Flash album?"

That's it!

OK I got the lyrics wrong

Thanks for that mate, this is a corking song and a very overlooked Queen tune I think.
