I have sinned dear Father Father I have sinned
Try and help me Father
Won't you let me in? Liar
Nobody believes me Liar
Why don't they leave me alone?
Sire I have stolen stolen many times
Raised my voice in anger
When I know I never...

    In the biography "Lover of Life, singer of songs" Freddies Mother reads a letter from Freddie when he was in boarding school. In this letter Freddie tells of a fight he had with another boy. When he tried to tell the headmaster his side of the story the headmaster wouldn't believe him and cut off his hair as a form of punishment. That is what I believe formed the basis for this song.

    He keeps committing a sin,and ask God for forgiveness, but he keeps repeating the same sin,and knows he will do it again.I think Freddie had issues about his homosexuality,and he didn't want to be gay,but he was and so he was trying to accept it.

    This song was written by a young man who at the age of 8 was sent across the sea to an all-boys boarding school. His original name for the song was “Lover”. Ask yourself What is the Lie that the song is about? Just like Bohemian Rhapsody, I think this song is intentionally obscure and is actually about having been sexually abused, either by a priest or having told a priest and been called a liar.

    I believe this song relates to when Freddie was young he went to a private catholic school in Zanzibar.He was exposed to religion, God,Jesus and confession.He probably knew God, and when he sinned he felt so quilty and wanted forgiveness to feel inside good with God.But you know a lot of religious people and the devil (the Liar)like to condemn you .
    Around them everything you do is sin , they shoot you down before you even begin.The devil likes to tell they are sooo bad God will not forgive them.Then after awhile you just say screw it , I really want to live up to your expectations but I can't because everything you do is sin -something like that

    A strong queen song. It is about someone who lied till he passed away.
