Too Much Love Will Kill You is a song written by Queen guitarist Brian May, Frank Musker, and Elizabeth Lamers. The song was recorded around 1988 or before, and was intended to be on Queen's The Miracle album in 1989. In 1992, Brian May performed it at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert. It also was on his solo album Back to the Light in the same year and released as a single charting in the top 10 in the UK at number 5. Unheard by most Queen fans with Freddie Mercury on vocals, "Too Much Love Will Kill You" appeared on the 1995 Queen album Made in Heaven, released four years after Mercury's death. Queen's version made it to #15 on the UK singles chart in 1996. Brian May won an Ivor Novello award for this song, and said later that if there was one song that he would have wanted to win an award for, it was "Too Much Love Will Kill You." The song is about May's feelings during his divorce, and the choice one must make between two women that one loves equally. The song also gained great popularity when performed by Luciano Pavarotti and Brian May on the Pavarotti and Friends concert in 2003.

Too much love will kill you

by Brian May, Frank Musker and Elizabeth Lamers

I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone
For much too long
I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
I've been looking back to find
Where I went wrong
Too much love will kill you
If you can't make up your mind
Torn between the lover
And the love you leave behind
You're headed for disaster
'cos you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you
Every time
I'm just the shadow of the man I used to be
And it seems like there's no way out of this for me
I used to bring you sunshine
Now all I ever do is bring you down
How would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can't you see that it's impossible to choose
No there's no making sense of it
Every way I go I'm bound to lose
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
And the pain will make you crazy
You're the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you
Every time
Too much love will kill you
It'll make your life a lie
Yes, too much love will kill you
And you won't understand why
You'd give your life, you'd sell your soul
But here it comes again
Too much love will kill you
In the end...
In the end.
