Queen - No-One But You (Only The Good Die Young) Lyrics

A hand above the water
An angel reaching for the sky
Is it raining in heaven?
Do you want us to cry?

And everywhere the broken-hearted
On every lonely avenue
No-one could reach them
No-one but you

One by one
Only the good die young
They're only flyin' too close to the sun
And life goes on
Without you...

Another tricky situation
I get to drownin' in the blues
And I find myself thinkin'
Well, what would you do?

Yes, it was such an operation
Forever paying every due
Hell, you made a sensation
You found a way through

One by one
Only the good die young
They're only flyin' too close to the sun
We'll remember

And now the party must be over
I guess we'll never understand
The sense of your leaving
Was it the way it was planned?

And so we grace another table
And raise our glasses one more time
There's a face at the window
And I ain't never, never sayin' goodbye...

And it's one by one
Only the good die young
They're only flyin' too close to the sun
Cryin' for nothing
Cryin' for no-one
No-one but you

  44. Rezky Amaliya


  45. Rick Shogun

    roger taylor sounds like bryan adams


    more like rod stewert

  46. oskar hall

    The perfect song for how we all feel about Kobe Bryant’s death at the moment.

  47. Vivek Thayapurath

    Even though this song was written for Freddie when I hear it now reminds me of Kobe Bryant
    Rest in peace Mamba


    You are comparing a basketball player to the greatest musician and singer of all time? LOOL

  48. Barbara Brown

    Such a beautiful song x

  49. suzie donaldson

    This really is their farewell song to Freddie. I'd never heard it before until I bought made in heaven three years ago. The lyrics convey their heartache and sorrow for the loss of their beloved Freddie and its utterly heartbreaking to listen to this song.

  50. Sami Dias

    Muito bom!!!!
    Adoro ouvir esta canção, aprendi quem é Queen com minha filha de 12 anos, experiência maravilhosa. Freddie Mercury eternizado nesta música! Obrigada Brian por ter composto esta canção tão linda! ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

  51. Iosef Martin

    Only the good die young...

  52. Kia Canta

    Everytime i discover a new queen song it's like a new release yeah and then i click this song waiting for freddie to sing then I said woah wait that's not freddie singing then camera focuses brian also playing the piano not very usual.. and i was like 😭😭😭 sobs then i realized this song is maybe a tribute to freddie after he dies sooo sad. Brian & rog got amazing voices but i know how sad they are while recording this especially John. I love you queen forever! 🤘👑

  53. SnivyLink2

    me: i probably won't cry, i wasn't even born when freddie died

  56. Lena Silva

    Amei 💖

  57. King Chris A

    I had to listen to this song after Kobe Bryant’s passing just yesterday

  58. Hans Gruber

    Booh, hard stuff...

  59. Itai Carmeli

    Had to hear this song again now when Kobe passed

  60. Merpes95

    Only the good die young. Freddie, Kobe, etc


    Kobe wasn't the best person when he was alive.

  61. anish das

  62. Loghan Pyda

    At least he’s no longer in pain and has found peace

    The greatest Guitarist

    Loghan Pyda yes. So true

  63. Edward James

    Thinking of Kobe rn

  64. Cathy Jones

    Too bad he didn’t have kids with Mary we might’ve had another Mercury singer.

  65. 3Singingdogs productions

    I love queen and Kobe Bryant so listening to this the same day of his death is so hard

  66. Poppy Rose

    this song makes me cry every time I listen to it... anyone else.... no just me.... ok fine its just me

  71. Sundaresh Venugopal

    I just head the other "Only the good die young" by Billy Joel, and this one by Queen soon after just to compare them to see which I liked better. That is just a fun song. This is a more sadder, and a more somber song, with a deeper sentiment; but without any melodrama or histrionics. This is a way better song. But if you want a lively song you are better-off listening to Billy Joel.

  72. škafiškafnjak doktor

    I so proud of you guys

  73. メカブもずく

    I can't listen to this without crying...

  74. Cali Flor

    Freddie estaría orgulloso y feliz de tener tan lindos amigos, que lo aman, y que han demostrado cuanto lo extrañan. Como lo extraño yo.🌻

  75. EJ T

    Almost too sad to watch, in context. You can see the pain. A fan from beginning to . .

  76. Lisa Pelletier

    Beautiful, heart felt song, wonderful tribute, "We'll remember forever"

  77. Theresa Ree Padilla

    See You At The Crossroads... Freddie Mercury. Rest In Peace.

  78. Feliks Arlovski

    November 24th, the day Freddie Mercury and our venerable principal passed away. We've sung this song as a tribute to both of them last year eventhough the guy I sang with brokedown and cried out loud at the chorus, the crowd gave us a huge applause and sang-along. Great & emotional song

  79. Maya Mecaller

    Then theres me..crying a whole lot.

  80. Tyler Joseph

    When the dude says "Brian Relax!" You really start to feel how tense he must've been recording it like this song had to be perfect to commemorate Freddy

  81. Ang

    Why is this acurate?

  82. jp frenk 97

    Here only the true man start to cry. We miss you Freddy

  83. Everlastlove

    This is the most touching song and video for Freddie! Brian, Roger, and John did their best! I can't imagine how hard it was for them after Freddie left. I will always adore "Queen"! Forever loved!

  84. 1234

    Roger taylor voice is dope as hell


    sounds like rod stewart

  85. Соня

    Brian teach me also to sing like you

  86. Charlotte Moyse

    L année prochaine sa fera 30 ans qu il aura disparu RIP Freddie Queen for Ever et The Show Must go on🙏👸🎵🇬🇧😭

  87. Durba Mukherjee

    If you don’t cry you won’t die because u were never alive

  88. Ttv VYBZ

    Fuck Paul prenter

  89. Leonardo Balestra

    😭 remember Freddie 😭

  90. Mara Sophie

    Freddie never died. He just became music

  91. Janet Apon

    Brian was having suicidal thoughts when Freddie died. He confessed this truth, think about John, who never spoke after Freddie's death. I couldn't imagine how much pain he endured during those times. He never spoke of it at all. He kept it all by himself. Poor Deaky 😔

  92. Celso Hinniger Barros

    Que dor no coração!

  93. Serenity Basteela

    Pokaždý obrečím.....

  94. Donata Maria Sileo

    GRAZIE. come FREDDIE Nessuno I Love Youuuuu❤❤❤❤❤👏👏👏👏👏👏

  95. Devin Weston

    At the end you can kinda hear over the guy who saids cut and brian you can hear sniffling and hear roger say "its ok john we are done." That's just breaking my heart 😭😭😢😥

  96. Alina _OwO

    "Do you want us to cry?"
    That's my question

  97. Veronica Webb

    Most amazing right here.

  98. Strong Box of matches

    These guys, their emotion shone through this song, it makes me cry every time, from the strum of guitar to the vocals, it’s beautiful

  99. James The Train Nerd

    Breaking news:a large group of angry people are storming Paul Prenter’s grave on their bicycles and machine guns in their hands,it’s impossible for the police and the army to stop them because they have joined them
