Appointment


The Left Handed Marriage

, 1967. Brian plays guitar and sings backing vocals. Length 2:33.
Written by Bill Richards, recorded on 28 June 1967 or possibly 31 July 1967.
Available only on the 1993 album 'Crazy Chain'.
Lyrics:
You come home from late night parties
Tiptoe kiss, there's nothing that you miss
Chased by all the rich at parties
Do you leave sometime at three

Now we've lost our old enjoyment
I'm your friend, I don't need an appointment
You know all the latest songs to sing
Social tramp, political land

You can talk on almost anything
But you rise in your conversation
I know I'm no great excitement
I'm your friend, I don't need an appointment

Well you try to get by
Without your friends you've left behind

Folks you meet who smile so sweet
Can be unkind to you and even let you down
Average craze, can only last nine days
This week on the sights and nights of town
Whatever next you're just out of context

Please forgive all this discouragement
I'm your friend, I don't need an appointment
But you try to get by
Without your friends you've left behind

Folks you meet who smile so sweet
Can be unkind to you and I won't help you
All avoid all that is destroyed
So before you vanish out of view
Ivory tower can you spare an hour

Life goes on but spare the sentiment
I'm your friend, I don't need an appointment

I Need Time

Written by Bill Richards and Brian May, recorded on 28 June 1967 or possibly 31 July 1967.
Available only on the 1993 album 'Crazy Chain'.
Lyrics:
Time never was my best friend
To the end it will try to catch me out
Even the light of sunrise hurts my eyes
I don't know what each day's about

I need time and in time I'll catch up with the rest
I'll do my best as long as I can take my
Time to work out where I've gone somehow wrong
In the life that was so good

People shall tax me so fast till I blast
I don't know a thing I should

I need time and in time I'll catch up with the rest
I'll do my best as long as I can take my
Time to recall happiness lest I lose it all

Time to start sorting my brain into lanes
Simply must break through that wall

Now on the stage spinning plates, as it takes
And he finds he has them all

I need time and in time I'll catch up with the rest
I'll do my best as long as I can take my time

Time to sit back think it out, round about
Without running everywhere
And if I get in their way they'll just say
It's your life why should we care

I need time and in time I'll catch up with the rest
I'll do my best as long as I can take my time

She Was Once My Friend


The Left Handed Marriage

, 1967. Brian plays guitar and sings some backing vocals. Length 3:12.

Available only on the 1993 album 'Crazy Chain'.

Lyrics:
The vicar with his battered suitcase
Stops the paperboy to make sure
That it's Sunday, no-one else knows
Bicycles crash where the wind blows

In the hall of my window
Lives the silence of my teeth on edge
People stare as though I'm jumping
Do they want to help or something?

She was once my friend
Friends aren't made too fast
She was once my friend
A friend that didn't last

I was radio's noisy adverts
At my ears and spoiled my shaving
Life is hard and life is horrid
Life is sometimes not worth saving

Statement from the bank
And open letters that won't get replies
Told them all I've lost a lover and a friend
And that was some surprise

She was once my friend
Friends aren't made too fast
She was once my friend
A friend that didn't last

The day she went away
Was not a sunny day

As I pass my weary eyes
Down pages packed with cultural interest
I recall a winter of warts
And midnight jobs
And things that we liked best

I would not ask many favours
Just nice smiles and funny ways
Of songs of burning and songs of yearning
Muddled me, the bitter taste of space

She was once my friend
Friends aren't made too fast
She was once my friend
A friend that didn't last

The day she went away
Was not a sunny day

She was once my friend, my friend for life
And what a life, believe me
She was once my friend, my friend for life
And what a life, believe me

She was once my friend for life
I'm crying, for a life so dying
She was once my friend, my friend for life
And what a life

Fork In The Road


Jonathan Kelly

, 1968-1973 (exact date unknown). Brian plays guitar.
Although this track is often credited to being recorded around 1990, according to the author of Jonathan Kelly's website, it was recorded around 1973, when Brian was still in Smile, alongside three other tracks. This was also confirmed by Brian (or at least, when asked, he did not deny it). However, Brian was in Queen in 1973, not Smile, which would mean the recording could have been anytime between 1968-1973.

Lyrics:
My vine's all green, my potato's red
I thought you was my friend till I caught you in my bed
Yeah, digging up my potatoes, trampling on my vine
Yeah, I had a worried feeling wrestling on my mind

Oh, I love you in the winter, I love you in the fall
But in between them blankets baby I love you best of all
Yeah, digging up my potatoes, trampling on my vine
Yeah, I had a worried feeling wrestling on my mind

Yeah, I crept up to the window, I thought I heard a whine
I heard somebody waaaah, Lord, you dirty swine, yeah

Lyrics:
Ooh, turn out the lights so I can't see your face
Don't tell me your name, I don't care
When you leave in the morning, forget where you've been
Don't mention this one night affair

You know it's started
Twisting the knife through my brain
You know it's started
Playing your silly games

Can't fill your place with the hole in my life
But I beg you to stay through the night
Can use your emotion, I'll imagine she's there
But maybe I'll get me some self satisfaction

You know it's started
Twisting the knife through my brain

Inside and outside, raining down
Somebody new
Inside and outside, making no sound
You know it too

People running round in circles
Round in circles, yeah
People running round in circles
Round in circles, yeah
People running round in circles
Round in circles, yeah
People running round in circles
Round in circles, yeah

Can't stop things running through my head
Open your mind to the one in your bed

Turn out the lights so I can't see your face
Don't tell me your name, I don't care
When you leave in the morning, forget where you've been
Don't mention this one night affair

Well, you know it's started
Twisting the knife through my brain, twisting the knife through my brain

Lyrics:
When you say I love you
Never want it to be true
Believe, but I felt, your heart's a stone
And you say it's hard luck
Puttin' love, but never to receive
Where did our love go wrong

Love, love is lost with you and me
But it's something that I used to be
In time, time will give our tears a start
Had to mend that broken heart

Lying beside you
Can't feel your body close to me
Why do I feel so wrong
'Cos you hurt me bad girl
Never thought that this could happen to me
Why did you lead me on

Love, love is lost with you and me
But it's something that I used to be
In time, time will give our tears a start
Had to mend that broken heart

Love, love is lost with you and me
But it's something that I used to be
In time, time will give our tears a start

Lyrics:
Too much
Hey

Knocking on the door was the last thing I remember
I woke up in her arms
I want her to kiss my body the way she said I'm sorry
She took me with her charms
On a night like this I could hardly remember
Hardly remember where I'd been
On a night like this you would never believe me
Never believe what I'd seen

I said love times love (love times love)
The love you gave to me
Love times love (love times love)
Love was all you were after, look what happened to me, yeah, yeah
Look what happened to me, yeah
Oh, look what happened to, ow

Sitting in a bar room trying to drown my sorrows
I found out she was gone
Then in runs a man, eh, trying to get my spunk up
When I showed him just where to get off
At a time like this who wants to pick a fight
When you feel like you should be dead
At a time like this "ain't seen it" he cried
Thinking about the good times, good times we had

Love times love (love times love)
The love you gave to me
Love times love (love times love)
Love was all you were after, look what happened to me

And knocking on the door was the last thing I remember
Woke up in her arms
I want her to kiss my body the way she said I'm sorry
She took me with her charms
On a night like this I could hardly remember
Hardly remember where I'd been
On a night like this you would never believe me
Never believe what I'd seen

I said love times love (love times love)
The love you gave to me
Love times love, sing it (love times love)
Love was all you were after, look what happened to me

Yeah

Can you hear the cries as they scream out in the night
The children live in fear, the victims of the night
(Raging like thunder) flashes line the sky
(They're going under) too many young were born to die
You can't stop though you can't even try
Death is waiting, writing in the sky

They will attack
They will return
No turning back
They'll watch you burn

Take your forces (attack)
Turn your night into day
Take no prisoners
No-one stands in your way
Fight for your life here today

Raise your flag up high and lift it to the stars

(unknown lyric) the one that got them all
(Pain and destruction) is what they leave behind
(Death and corruption) they bring to home again
You can't stand though you can't even try
Death is waiting, writing in the sky

They will attack
They will return
No turning back
They'll watch you burn

Take your forces (attack)
Turn your night into day
Take no prisoners
No-one stands in your way
Fight for your life here today

Ohhhh, yeah

You're trying hard to express yourself
Think you know just what it's about
Then someone tells you that you're way out of line
And you don't know what you're singing about
Well, well, well

Let me tell you something, maybe it's news to you
I'm in a rock 'n' roll band
I'm gonna growl, I'm gonna scream and shout
Maybe let it get out of hand

Shout it out
Shout it out
Shout it out
Shout it out

Back on the road again, bright lights
It's the life we all dream about
It never changes, it's still the same
It's the life I can't live without
It's another hall in another town
The people they're still the same
If they liked you once and they like you twice
Then come back again and again

Shout it out
Shout it out
Shout it out
Shout it out
Hit it

Ohh, yeah
Ow
That's right now, ahhhhhh

You're trying hard to express yourself
Think you know just what it's about
Then someone tells you that you're way out of line
That you don't know what you're singing about
Well, well, well

Let me tell you something, maybe it's news to you
I'm in a rock 'n' roll band
Yeah you, you're gonna growl, you're gonna scream and shout
Maybe let it get out of hand
Maybe let it get out of hand

Shout it out
Shout it out
Shout it out
Shout it out

I said shout it out (shout it out, shout it out)
Shout it out (shout it out, shout it out)
You gotta shout it out (shout it out, shout it out)
Ha, ha, shout it out
Two, three, four

Devil In Her Eyes

[shop]

Heavy Pettin'

, 1983. Produced by Brian May and Mack. Length 5:10.
Available as track 8 on the album 'Lettin' Loose'.
Lyrics:
All the stories 'bout you messing in your bedroom
I hope that they ain't true
There's been a rumour spread
And something that I ain't forgetting
Tell me now that it ain't you
I'm not a man who'll mix my words
When a woman cheats on me
But the whole town knows about it baby
Everybody except me

I lie awake at night
Alone until the morning light
There's nothing much that I can see
I wonder where you are
The boulevard or in a bar
My love for you's a mystery
I should have guessed a girl like you
Couldn't live with just one man
But the love we shared for each other
You've given to another man

She got the devil in her eyes
Comes as no surprise
Yeah, it's hard to realise
When a woman's got the devil in her eyes

I think I'm gonna lose my mind
'Cos girl I got to make you mine
Ain't no getting away from me
Them alibis that helped you out
You know your time is running out
To live for love with you and me
I should have guessed a girl like you
Couldn't live with just one man
But the love we shared for each other
You've given to another man

She's got the devil in her eyes
Comes as no surprise
Yeah, it's hard to realise
When a woman's got the devil in her eyes

Gotcha

Devil in her eyes
Yeah, comes as no surprise
Yeah, it's hard to realise
When a woman's got the devil in her eyes

Devil in her eyes
Comes as no surprise
Yeah, it's hard to realise
When a woman's got the devil in her eyes
Devil, the devil
Devil in her eyes
I said she's got the devil (devil)
The devil (the devil)
The devil in her (devil in her eyes)
Ow, she's got the devil (devil)
I said she's got the devil (the devil)
She's got the devil in her
Devil in her eyes
Ow, I said she's got the devil (devil)
Ow, she's got the devil (the devil)
She's got the, she's got the devil
In her (devil in her eyes)
Devil, the devil

Hell Is Beautiful

Heavy Pettin'

, 1983. Produced by Brian May and Mack. Length 4:08.
Available as track 9 on the album 'Lettin' Loose'.
Lyrics:
Can you see the fingers moving as they hold up their guitars
The fretboard running confusion as it heads up to the stars
Can you see the fires are burning down below your standing feet
Heads are shaking, hands are clapping
You think they're really great

Hell's a bad place (depends on who you are)
It's a bad place (it's where they burn up their guitars)
You've got a bad face (hell is beautiful)
Hell is beautiful, beautiful

And the stars they're really burning, in the night you'll feel the heat
As the band appears before you as you get up in your seat
All hell breaks loose around you, smoke it fills your eyes
The devil's taking over, too late to realise

Hell's a bad place, yeah (depends on who you are)
It's a bad place, oh yeah
You've got a bad face (hell is beautiful)
Hell is beautiful, beautiful

Ow

Hell's a bad place (depends on who you are)
It's a bad place
You've got a bad face (hell is beautiful)
Hell is beautiful, beautiful

Hell's a bad place
Well it's a bad place (it's where they burn up their guitars)
You've got a bad face (hell is beautiful)
Hell is beautiful, beautiful
Yeah

Ow, guitar
I don't wanna go
Won't go
Hell
'Cos I'm a

Lyrics:
Another morning, you are on my mind
Takin' up my time throughout the day
I try control, every chance I see
Always you with me, that's in my dreams
You give me fever, love I can't explain
Fire uncontained, what is this, girl?
I try to fight, but I never win
Seems I just give in to your embrace

But oh, you try so hard not to say
Oh, all the things you do to me, and girl, oh
Oh, my love can't be concealed, girl, you know the deal
Baby, stay with me tonight

At my apartment, you've come to the door
Quarter after four AM, hello
We start to kiss, ooh we start to neck
You know what comes next, and you love it, girl
But oh, what we have it feels so good
Oh, and we both knew that it would, and girl
Oh, oh, the feeling is so right, please come hold me tight
Baby, stay with me tonight

'Cos you give me special joy
Oh, make me feel just like a schoolboy, girl
Oh, give me feelings of delight
Please turn out the light
Baby, stay with me tonight

'Cos I love you
You know I really do love you, girl
It's been my innermost fantasy
To share and care and to give my love to you through the night

You call me crazy, maybe that is true
But what can I do, I love you, girl
You got me movin', movin' left and right
Deep within the night, come here, my dear
You give me fever, love I can't explain
Fire uncontained, what is this, girl?
I try to fight, but I never win
Seems I just give in to your embrace

But oh, oh I pray you never leave, oh
'Cos my heart would surely grieve so, girl
Oh, and you know I would not lie, girl, you are my pride
Baby, stay with me tonight

'Cos you give me special joy
Oh, make me feel just like a schoolboy, girl, oh
Oh, the feeling is so right, please come hold me tight
Baby, stay with me tonight

Yeah, yeah
Need you by my side, baby
Oh, baby stay with me tonight

Oh, oh, ooh
Baby stay with me tonight
Oh, oh, ooh, baby

Ooh, ooh
Baby, baby, baby, yeah
I wanna run my fingers through your hair
Whisper sweet things in your ear
Oh, ooh
Stay with me tonight
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Baby, stay with me tonight

Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right

[shop]

Jeffrey Osbourne

, 1983. Brian plays guitar. Length 4:45.
Available on the album 'Stay With Me Tonight'.
Lyrics:
You got mad at your man tonight
So you're out to get revenge now
You walked in and you busted him
Messing with your best friend
I saw the look that was on your face
You're so determined to make him pay
You wanna fight fire with fire
But that ain't the way, no
If you ask me girl I think you're going too far
I'm gonna give you some advice that's straight from my heart
I'm tellin' you

Two wrongs don't make a right
So don't you give up your love tonight
Take some time, talk it out (talk it out)
Before it's too late, ohh (check it out)

Things aren't always the way they seem
When you think that you've been cheated
Maybe you weren't where you should have been
To give him what he needed
Your so-called girlfriend was on the move
She made it hard for him to refuse
She offered hot love and desire
Now who do you blame, oh
Do you take it out on him, girl are you sure
That you wanna give your love away to even the score
Remember

Two wrongs don't make a right
So don't you give up your love tonight
Maybe you should think twice
Don't make a mistake, no
Two wrongs don't make a right
Don't do nothing you'll regret tonight
Take some time, talk it out (talk it out)
Before it's too late, oh (check it out)

And before you do something you'll be sorry for
Girl I think you'd better be sure
You know temptation can be great, oh yeah
It knows how to sneak it's way into your life
It's calling out to you tonight
There's still a chance that you can save
Your love before it's too late

If you ask me girl I think you're going too far
I'm gonna give you some advice that's straight from my heart
I keep trying to make you understand
You don't have to go and get revenge

'Cos two wrongs don't make a right
So don't you give up your love tonight
Maybe you should think twice
Don't make a mistake, no

Two wrongs don't make a right
Don't do nothing you'll regret tonight
Take some time, talk it out (talk it out)
Before it's too late, oh (check it out)

Two wrongs don't make a right
So don't you give up your love tonight
Maybe you should think twice
Don't make a mistake, no

Two wrongs don't make a right
Don't do nothing you'll regret tonight
Take some time talk it out
