Brian Talks

Brian May, 1992, Rock Power

And on 'Resurrection', which is the highest point and the loudest stuff on the album, I really went for it - that was the extreme that I pushed myself to. It's amazing what you can do when you try. When I started off, I couldn't get close to those notes; I wanted to get that top D but I was four or five semitones away from that. But if you do it every day, which I did, you get there.

Additional Info

This track started life as Ride To Win from Cozy Powell's The Drums Are Back album.


There's a pain in my brain
Confusion in my heart
My blood's fit for bursting my body apart
I'm gonna ride
Ride the night into the morning sun

Gonna make my resurrection
No more of this crap
Got a whole new direction
Ain't no turning back
Resurrection is a gonna come

My spirit is weeping
For freedom it cries
Been scraping my living
In the valley of lies
(Ooh, ooh, ooh) Gonna ride the night to the morning sun

I'm a victim of a victim
Of a conspiracy
From a corpum derelictum
Gonna fly and be free
Resurrection is a gonna come

Clear the vision
Heal the system
Sins forgiven

Flee the prison
Break the system
Sins forgiven

Ride the night - yes I know I'm still alive
Gotta ride the night - yeah I'm gonna ride
Rise again in the morning light

There's no use in my counting
The price of those years
There's too many heartaches
And too many tears
(Ooh, ooh, ooh) Ride the night to the morning sun

Oooh yes I thought I was dreaming
But the east is ablaze
With the promise of the future
Those heavenly days
Ride the night to the morning sun
Ride the night ooh, into the morning sun
'Cos the resurrection is a gonna come

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
