Say It's Not True

This song is by Queen + Paul Rodgers and appears on the album Return Of The Champions (2005).

Roger: Hi everybody. Wow. I think we're gonna have a great night tonight, so, I, I've just come out here to bring you down. Um, this is, this is actually a song written for Nelson Mandela, ah, it's about, about something that does affect everybody, you, me, us, everybody, ah, that is the HIV/AIDS virus. This is called "Say It's Not True".

The harder we play
The faster we fall
When we think that we know it all
We know nothing at all

The letter arrives
Like a bolt from the blue
So what's left of your lives
All your dreams lost to you

Say it's not true
Say it today
When I open my eyes
Will it all go away

Say it's not true
Say it for real
Can't be happening to you
Can't be happening to me

It's hard not to cry
It's hard to believe
So much heartache and pain
So much reason to grieve

With the wonders of science
And all the knowledge we've stored
Magic cocktails for lives
People just can't afford

So say it's not true
You can say it's not right
It's hard to believe
The size of the crime

Say it's not true
You can say it's not real
Could be happening to you
Could be happening to me

Roger: Thank you, thanks very much. Now you know that condoms are the fashion, anybody got any? Alright. OK, this is where I tell you that he is actually wearing, normally two, but actually three tonight, at the moment, at the moment this guy has just got the one on, this is from Brooklyn, USA, Danny Miranda. From Chicago, USA, Jamie Moses. Up here, we've got a man on the keyboards, the wizard, Spike Edney. And over here is my best friend Brian May.
