Jeg når kun lige at træde ud af toget, så er jeg forelsket i Montreaux. Den lille by ved Genévesøen oser af stemning og byder os velkommen med duften af forår, blomster i fuldt flor og mindet om en af mine yndlingsmusikere, Freddy Mercury, hængende i luften.
"Smoke on the water", Deep Purple We all came out to Montreux On the Lake Geneva shoreline To make records with a mobile We didn't have much time Frank Zappa and the Mothers Were at the best place around But some stupid with a flare gun Burned the place to the ground Smoke on the water, fire in the sky They burned down the gambling house It died with an awful sound Funky Claude was running in and out Pulling kids out the ground When it all was over We had to find another place But Swiss time was running out It seemed that we would lose the race Smoke on the water, fire in the sky We ended up at the grand hotel It was empty cold and bare But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside Making our music there With a few red lights and a few old beds We make a place to sweat No matter what we get out of this I know we'll never forget Smoke on the water, fire in the sky
"Mother Love", Queen I don't want to sleep with you I don't need the passion too I don't want a stormy affair To make me feel my life is heading somewhere All I want is the comfort and care Just to know that my woman gives me sweet - Mother love I've walked too long in this lonely lane I've had enough of this same old game I'm a man of the world and they say I'm strong But my heart is heavy and my hope is gone Out in the city, in the cold world outside I don't want pity, just safe place to hide Mama please, let me back inside I don't want to make no waves But you can give me all the love that I crave I can't take if you see me cry I long for peace before I die All I want to know that you're there You're gonna give me all your sweet - Mother love My body's aching, but I can't sleep My dreams are all the company I keep Got such a feeling as the sun goes down I'm coming home to my sweet - Mother love
Empty spaces - what are we living for Abandoned places - I guess we know the score On and on, does anybody know what we are looking for... Another hero, another mindless crime Behind the curtain, in the pantomime Hold the line, does anybody want to take it anymore The show must go on, The show must go on Inside my heart is breaking My make-up may be flaking But my smile still stays on. Whatever happens, I'll leave it all to chance Another heartache, another failed romance On and on, does anybody know what we are living for? I guess I'm learning, I must be warmer now I'll soon be turning, round the corner now Outside the dawn is breaking But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free The show must go on The show must go on Inside my heart is breaking My make-up may be flaking But my smile still stays on My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies Fairytales of yesterday will grow but never die I can fly - my friends The show must go on The show must go on I'll face it with a grin I'm never giving in On - with the show - I'll top the bill, I'll overkill I have to find the will to carry on On with the - On with the show - The show must go on...
