Song Lyric Sunday — Breath

This week’s Song Lyric Sunday theme is “breathing/breath.”

The song I chose, “You Take My Breath Away,” was written by Freddie Mercury and was recorded by Queen. It was released in 1976 on the album “A Day at the Races.”

This song is allegedly about Freddie Mercury’s female lover Mary Austin, who he lived with for six years and remained friends with until his death in 1991. Austin and Mercury split up in 1980 when Mercury decided he preferred male partners. Upon his death, Mercury left Austin his house in London.

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh take it take it all away
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh take my breath away ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh you take my breath away

Look into my eyes and you’ll see
I’m the only one
You’ve captured my love
Stolen my heart
Changed my life
Every time you make a move
You destroy my mind
And the way you touch
I lose control and shiver deep inside
You take my breath away

You can reduce me to tears
With a single sigh
(Please don’t cry anymore)
Every breath that you take
Any sound that you make
Is a whisper in my ear
I could give up all my life for just one kiss
I would surely die
If you dismiss me from your love
You take my breath away

So please don’t go
Don’t leave me here all by myself
I get ever so lonely from time to time
I will find you
Anywhere you go, I’ll be right behind you
Right until the ends of the Earth
I’ll get no sleep till I find you to tell you
That you just take my breath away

I will find you
Anywhere you go
Right until the ends of the Earth
I’ll get no sleep till I find you to
Tell you when I’ve found you
I love you

    It is a lovely song, thanks for sharing it. I never heard this song before and I guess it did not get much air time.
