I went walking with my mamma one day
When she warned me what people say
"Live your life until love is found
Cuz love's gonna get you down"
Lollipop, Album: Life in Cartoon Motion
Wake up in the mornin', stumble on my life
Can't get no love without sacrifice
Happy Ending, Album: Life in Cartoon Motion
This is the hardest story that I've ever told
No hope or love or glory, happy endings gone forever more
Happy Ending, Album: Life in Cartoon Motion
If we are all in the gutter
It doesn't change who we are
'Cause some of us in the gutter
Are looking up at the stars
Good Guys, Album: No Place In Heaven
And to the romance when I was 14 years old
And to my heroes that were dressed up in gold
Only hoping one day I could be so bold
Where have all the gay guys gone?
Good Guys, Album: No Place In Heaven
I tried to be like Grace Kelly, mm
But all her looks were too sad, ah
So I tried a little Freddie, mm
I've gone identity mad!
Grace Kelly, Album: Life in Cartoon Motion
Emily, it's your life
And you can't live it twice
Emily, Album: The Origin of Love
Love's gonna get you down.
Lollipop

What's the name of that famous museum in Paris? The Louvre? I went through that place in 20 minutes.
The Parisian has his amus*ments as regularly as his meals, the theatre, music, the dance, a walk in the Tuilleries, a refection in the cafe, to which ladies resort as commonly as the other sex. Perpetual business, perpetual labor, is a thing of which he seems to have no idea.

I have nothing against Orlando, though you are, of course, far more likely to get shot or robbed there than in London.
I don't miss London much. I find it crowded, vast and difficult to get around. Cabs are incredibly expensive.
London. The beating heart of England.
England is my home. London is my home. New York feels like, if I have to spend a year living in an unfamiliar city, this is a pretty lovely one to spend a year in, but I will be going home at the end of it, certainly.
Fashion needs fresh blood, and London is the most creative place for that.

Someone will always be smarter.
Someone will always be younger.
But they will never be you.

You don't need me to tell you what's gone wrong
You know what's going on
And it seems to me we've not cared enough
Or confided in each other at all
It seems like we've all got our backs against the wall

Time waits for nobody
Time waits for no one
We've got to trust one another
Or we'd have no more future at all
Freddie Mercury - Time Waits For No One, Album: The Freddie Mercury Album

I always knew i was a star. And now, the rest of the world seems to agree with me.
All my lovers asked me why they couldn't replace Mary, but it's simply impossible. The only friend I've got is Mary and I don't want anybody else. To me, she was my common-law wife. To me, it was a marriage. We believe in each other, that's enough for me.
