''It's a long story, that song, but I always felt it would be important because we were dealing with things that were hard to talk about at the time , but in the world of music, you could do it. It's got that kind of sadness, but it's hopeful. It's one of those things which evolved, and there's bits of all of us in it. It has a little bit of retrospective stuff and it has a little bit of forward looking stuff. There was a point where I looked into it and got a vision of it, and put down a few things; and felt it meant something special, so I'm pretty fond of that one. Sometimes these tracks have a life of their own and no matter what you do they have a certain sound to them. It has a very broad and lush sound to it, which I like.'' - Brian May
