Love of my life – you hurt me,
You broken my heart and now you leave me.
Love of my life can’t you see,
Bring it back, bring it back,
Don’t take it away from me, because you don’t know, what it means to me.

Love of my life don’t leave me,
You’ve stolen my love, you now desert me,
Love of my life can’t you see,
Bring it back, bring it back,
Don’t take it away from me because you don’t know what it means to me.

You will remember –
When this is blown over
And everything’s all by the way –
When I grow older
I will be there at your side to remind you how I still love you – I still love you.

Back – hurry back,
Don’t take it away from me, because you don’t know what it means to me –
Love of my life
Love of my life…

Some of the lyrics to Love Of My Life have clear meanings and some contain metaphorical references.

You can understand the lyrics to Love Of My Life if you take apart the structure of the words. The word "lyric" itself derives from the Latin word lyricus, with the actual English word lyrics applied to the definition "words set to music" listed in Stainer and Barrett's 1876 Dictionary of Musical Terms. Continuing the chain, the Latin word lyricus derives from the Greek word λυρικός or lyrikós. This somewhat means "poetry accompanied by the lyre" or "words set to music." You can easily see that by looking at the background of the word lyric, that the "lyrics to Love Of My Life" means the words set to the music of Love Of My Life, or poetry accompanied by the lyre played by Queen. The singular form "lyric" is still used to mean the complete words to a song. However, the singular form lyric is also commonly used to refer to a specific line (or phrase) within a song's lyrics.
