"I don't expect my love affairs to last for long.
I never fool myself that my dreams will come true. Being use to trouble, I anticipate it, but all the same I hate it: wouldn't you?"
"Time and Time again I've said that I don't care: that I'm immune to gloom, that I'm hard, through and through. but every time it matters, all my words desert me. So, anyone can hurt me, and they do."

"Oh, What I'd give for a hundred years,
But the physical interferes
Everyday more... Oh, my creator,
What is the use of the strongest heart
In a body that's falling apart?
A serious flaw: I hope you know that."


#1: your little body's slowly breaking down. you're losing speed, youre losing strength...your eyes, your smile... do not ahve the sparkle of your fanastic past: if you climb one more mountian, it could be your last.
#2: I'm not that ill... bad moments come, but they go! Some days I'll find some a little bit harder. But that doesn't mean we should give up our dream, have you ever seen me defeated? Don't you forget what I've been thorugh-- and yet, I'm still standing!
#1: dear. You are dying.



"deep in my heart, I'm concealing things that I'm longing to say. Scared to confess what I'm feeling: frightened you'll slip away... you must love me."

That sounds like Freddie wrote it. It's sounds like he's letting all his emotions out...the real Freddie...letting himself become vulnerable.

Sounds like Freddie lyrics to me. Perhaps he's having an inner struggle borne out of external circumstances that cannot be understood, but resigns himself to his fate. Almost a feeling of futility.

exactly what I thought. The closeness to Freddie's life, feelings, situation, was uncanny, and thoroughly emotional.
These are actully lyrics from a play called "Evita" based on the life of Argentine first lady Eva Peron. Some of these songs and words though, mimic the sad parts of Freddie's life... (most of which go ignored) very much so, I think. I thought it was worth posting the resemblence. There's more similiarities... that maybe later I'd get un-lazy enough to type...
