Hi all. A few months back, someone posted a Freddie tribute video from YouTube with a Billy Squire song backing it up. Does anyone remember that? Or remember the name of the song? I've been looking for it, but there are so many tributes, its like finding a needle in a haystack. Thanks!

Could the song have been Love is the Hero?

Squier Honors Late Freddie Mercury



Rocker Billy Squier, best known for his radio hit "The Stroke," is offering his previously unreleased, live acoustic tribute to late Queen singer Freddie Mercury, "I Have Watched You Fly," for free online download. The song was
recorded in February during the opening of a New York play dedicated to the singer, who died of AIDS in 1992, entitled "Mercury: The Afterlife and Times of a Rock God." Download of the song will reward the listener with a coupon for the purchase of Squier's new album, Happy Blue.

HAVE WATCHED YOU FLY (Song for Freddie Mercury)
Time….slipping through our fingers all the time….
You can say it doesn't matter
Time…..always seems the last thing on your mind….
'til one day it's all behind you
You were not the one to say that love comes cheap…
You gave your everything and more - that’s what you wanted

I have watched you fly…and I have shared your freedom….
Can't believe my eyes - can it be that its over now…
I can't say goodbye to all those dreams we started…
'Cause I have watched you fly……I want you back where you belong
Why…you could never be too careful with your life…
Always reaching out for something……
Life…one lonely chance to touch the stars so high…
Did you risk it all for nothing?
We have come so far…but is the cost too steep?
To give up everything…everything you wanted

I have watched you fly….and I have shared your struggle
And somewhere down inside, I know your love will make me strong
You have lost your heart, but you have shown your courage
And I will do my part, to make it right when you are gone
Whaaa... Whaaa... Whaaa......... Whaaa ...Whaaa ... Whaaa
We have come so far...but is the cost too steep?
To give up everything...everything and more ....that's what you wanted
(Remember)

I have watched you fly...and I have shared your freedom
I can't believe my eyes - can it be it's over now
I can't say goodbye to all those dreams we started
'Cause i have watched you fly....I want you back...
(One more time)

I have watched you fly, and I have shared your struggle
And somewhere down inside, I know your love will keep me strong
You have lost your heart, but you have shown your courage,
And I will do my part, to make it right when you are gone
Time…..fly, fly on……..
