Well, this is an old story, but maybe some new details can be open: why 'Metropolis' soundtrack sleeve contains absolutely different to real 'Love Kills' lyrics? I've heard somewhere because it's Moroder's version, but Freddie used his own.
If someone has never seen the Metropolis lyrics version I can post it here...

Apparently Freddie decided they were inappropriate. Apparently.

Here it is. You can easy find it on Metropolis soundtrack CD:
If you had kept your eyes wide open
You might have stood at least a chance
You could have taken some precaution
At least have had a second glance
Love is lethal, love's a crime
Love is fatal, love's a tyrant
Love is murder, love destroys
Love won't stop until
Love kills
Love hides and waits within your feelings
It's full of cloak and dagger style
And always ready without warning
To sentence you without a trial
Love is lethal, love's a crime
Love is fatal, love's a tyrant
Love is murder, love destroys
Love holds on until
Love kills
So now you're staring at the future
But you can't take along the past
And emptiness, that silver bullet
Slams and tears right through your heart

Try to sing those lyrics with the Love Kills melody. Won't work.


Not those are losers who fall, but those who don't stand up.

I know. Or do you think I wrote them? :) As I know Freddie used to wrote music before lyrics, so how he can wrote this version? Or he change everything - lyrics and music and make them more good.
