Just thinking about some of the most poetic or well-crafted lyrics the band have come up with over the years.

My favourites:

In a Queen song:
Now I'm Here: "A thin moon, me and the smoke-screen sky, where beams of your love light chase; Don't move, don't speak, don't feel no pain with the rain runnin' down my face"

How Can I Go On: "When all the salt is taken from the sea, I stand dethroned, I'm naked and I bleed; And when your finger points so solidly, is anybody there to believe in me, to hear my plea and take care of me?"

"Too much love will kill you, just as sure as none at all; It'll drain the power that's in you; Make you plead and scream and crawl"

Abandonfire: "Abandon hope who enter here, land of hopelessness and fear; a band of gypsies, a band of gold...won't save your hide, won't save your soul"

John (not much to pick from, so I'm including another Queen track:
You and I: "Music is playing in the darkness and the lantern goes swinging by; Shadows flickering, my heart's jittering; Just you and I"

Good choice of lyrics.

As for me, I saw myself in these lyrics of Radio Ga Ga and it was the very first song that brought me to Queen:  

I'd sit alone and watch your light
My only friend through teenage nights
And everything I had to know
I heard it on my radio.

Those were the pre-internet days and of course I heard the song from the radio.

"Never wanted to be the boy next door - always thought I'd be something more,
but it ain't easy for a small town boy - it ain't easy at all.
Thinking it right - doing it wrong
It's easier from an armchair.
Waves of alternatives wash at my sleepiness - have my eggs poached for breakfast, I guess..."

In the Lap of the Gods:

"I live my life for you.
Think all my thoughts with you and only you.
Anything you ask I do, for you..."

-You can't say it any better than that!
