Too Much Love Will Kill You Lyrics
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone
For much too long
Oh, I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a...

Imagine a married man with three kids.
Have an affair with a mistress. She's his true love. Hard to leave his wife and kids, and that's almost impossible.
The mistress loves him too. So the man has to choose between his present wife and his lover, hence the phrase "torn between the lover and the love you leave behind".
At the end, his mistress left him, a devastating ending for him. He keep remembering her for all of his life, even after his mistress married with someone else.
Remember, too much love will kill you.

Brian May wrote it, and at the time if writing he was going through a very tough time in his life. Freddie's health was getting worse rapidly towards the point of his death, Brian was dealing with a failing marraige with his children's mother, eventually leading to a divorce, and Brian's father died. All if these things happened in the space of about 2 years of each other and almost led to suicide and therefore I'm guessing that this song is about his struggle and not being able to deal with life anymore. Although it can also have the meaning if Freddie dying from AIDS, he didn't write the song and the song was actually recorded in the late 80s which is later than a lot of people think. So although he had been diagnosed at that point, this message can only really be given across when you hear Freddie sing it. There is a version with Brian May singing it (I have the album -back to the light- :P) and although I love Freddie dearly I do prefer Brian's version. I think you can hear the emotion and struggle more in his voice. Also in the live version @ Freddie's tribute concert you can hear the Brian is about to cry. I feel really sorry for him, because I think we all know that life's not a bed of roses, and I haven't had it easy either but I think his work gives a lot of people hope :D

I always thought the song was about aids.

A married man has an affair, falls in love
with his mistress, but the guilt he feels
his really painful. He loves and cares for his wife and children, But the mistress makes him really happy. It's impossible
for him to make a decision, Everyone suffers, everyone is miserable because of his inability to choose. How will this end?
I think we all know.

Giving all you love to one person is dangerous.. You must realize that others needed your love too..
