Mother Love Lyrics

Play "Mother Love"
on Amazon Music

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...

    I think many of the interpretations people have put above may be part of the meanings behind this song but one has to realise that Brian May wrote the majority of the lyrics.....Freddie is quoted by Brian as saying "just write me stuff to sing!" as he was too ill towards the end of life!

    He was in so much physical and emotional pain. He spent his entire life in conflict with himself. Now all he wants is that sweet love. The comfort of a mother. He’s going home to sweet mother love.

    It's about Mary.

    She was the first love in his life. She understood him emotionally. He kept her by his side all throughout his life...consulted her with big decisions... lived with her at Garden Lodge...willed her everything. She sat by his side at the end...she loved and cared for him like that of a really close friend...or that of a mother.

    I also believe the last words from Days of our Lives "I still love you" were to her. He emotionally loved the women in his life...he physically loved the men in it.

    It has pain written all over it and he wants to enjoy peace.

    It is another great song by Queen.
    Freddie wanted a purpose to keep him active, and song writing was one of his great talents.
    No doubt some lyrics indicate his pain, but considering he didn't want a female in his life, takes away from the song being all about him.

    in my point of view, one of the most deep lyrics of queen. mercury probably started to write that song once he realized that he had no chance at all to survive. He knew he was seriously ill.

    After years of pain because of aids, he felt like he was tired and he had enough.

    "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"

    I wonder how terrible was that man feeling for writing such a thing. it's not even subjective. More objective than this is impossible: "my heart is heavy and my hope is gone"
