Bassey, Shirley - Show Must Go On Lyrics

This one I'll never sell, they'll never understand
I don't even sing it well, I try but I just can't
But I sing it every night and I fight to keep it in
Cause this one's for you, this one's for you

I've done a hundred songs from fantasies to lies
But this one's so real for me that I'm that one who cries
And I sing it every night and I fight to hide the tears
Cause this one's for you, this one's for you

This one's for you wherever you are
To say that nothings been the same since we've been apart
This one's for all the love we once knew
Like everything else I have, this one's for you. Oh-uh-oh

I've got it all, it seems, for all it means to me
But I sing of things I miss and things that used to be
And I wonder every night, if you might just miss me too
And I sing for you, I sing for you

This one's for you wherever I go
To say the things I should have said, things that you should know
This one's to say that all I can do
Is hope that you will hear me sing 'cause this one's for you. Oh-uh-oh

This one's for you wherever you are
To say that nothings been the same since we've been apart. Oh
This one's for all the love we once knew

  33. donkiddick08

  34. KazgarothUsher

    Brilliant :D

  35. lala777

    A great tribute a truly amazing person.

  36. sophie1040

    Moulin Rouge anyone???

  37. rupert von trapp

    Why do people get so parochial about songs? Nothing should ever be described as 'definitive'. Otherwise we might say that Laurence Olivier was a definitive Hamlet, so no one else need bother. Shirley has taken a song the legendary Freddie made famous and has added something new and haunting to it. I hope that people will go on recording this song for decades to come because that is the greatest compliment anyone could ever pay May and Mercury. There's room for everyone.

  38. edengirl17

    This song was recorded in 2009?:O

  39. Ana Silva

    Uma homenagem linda para uma voz quente,maravilhosa que aquece os nossos corações.
    De um profissionalismo ímpar deve ser ouvida sempre e divulgada ás novas gerações.

  40. edengirl17

    She is not Freddie and I don't expect her to be. She is herself and that is fantastic. She did a great job and is to be admired. Not everybody sings after 60. We still have her and I thank God for that. Stop comparing, just admire.

  41. Kenny Wood

    get a pair or ears my freind shirley cant match freddie there is no key change in second verse and she doesent go up on last verse an i love shirley with all my heart but she's simply not freddie

    Rafael Correia

    I don't think she wanted to Freddie, my friend. She just wanted to do the song on her own way.

  42. yokelam007

    Beautiful song and wonderful video. Dame Shirley's musical talent is beyond this world. Just a living legend!!!

  43. karelatsea

    she is a one of a kind !!

  44. Peter Platz

    Very nice video, thanks!!

  45. Luis Gomez

    increibles las fotos buenisimas, el tema le queda super bien , y esa voz es unica, felicidades bien por el video me super gusto.

  46. megafantasy


    Il est tout bonnement impossible de faire mieux que l'Originale, c'est criminel de dire ça ! :)

  47. Isilda Paulo

    Dame Shirley Bassey why is it that you have the voice that belongs to my soul !?!

  48. MooseyFate

    I think this is actually in a lower key than the Queen one. Imagine that XD

  49. Jonas Zehringer

    A long time since i've seen and heard that, great song and video!

  50. TINACHER1 the video too.

  51. donkiddick08

    good version but, i prefer the one by patti russo with queen.

  52. Alin Tiberiu Petrovics

    No way...Queen were the least in my opinion.

  53. yngfunqc
