Brian May — Just One Life lyrics

I did not know you
Our lives never touched
'Til the say they gathered
To bid you farewell
And they painted your picture
And as I looked around
I felt I saw you
In the words and the sound
Your talent came flowing
Through the stories they tell
And through the the faces
Of those who loved you so well
Your life gave them a treasure
A piece of themselves
Something to carry
And still serves them well
Just One Life
Just One Life
Just One life
That is born, and is, and is gone
Just One Life
And I'm so glad to know you
As I know you
Perhaps inside you
You were messed up like me
But them you were whole and strong
And friend in their need
And what you left behind you
And what swept over me
Says that your life's work
Rolls on and on
A piece of eternity
Just One Life
Just One Life
Just One Life
That is born, and is, and is gone
Just One Life
Did you ever have the change to find out
What life is all about
I did not know you
Our lives never touched
'Til the day we gathered
To say our farewells
Dedicated to Philip Sawyer
