During the musical, Mercury performed the song as a duet with Cliff Richard.
It was last time Freddie sung live in concert.

Freddie Mercury In My Defence

**In My Defence** was first released on the **Time** LP in 1986.
The music video, made after Freddie’s death, was a montage featuring outtakes of past music videos, numerous private shots, as well as highlights of Freddie’s career.
Rudi Dolezal wanted the video that showed
Freddie being happy and having a good time.

It also features several quotations from interviews with Freddie,
and ends with the line
* I still love you *

from *These Are the  Days Of Our Lives*.

In my defence, what is there to say?
All the mistakes we’ve made must be faced today
It’s not easy now, knowing where to start
While the world we love tears itself apart

Freddie Mercury

I’m just a singer with a song
How can I try to right the wrong?
For just a singer with a melody
I’m caught in between, with a fading dream

In my defence, what is there to say?
We destroy the love, it’s our way
We never listen enough, never face the truth
Then like a passing song, love is here
And then it’s gone

Freddie

I’m just a singer with a song
How can I try to right the wrong?
For just a singer with a melody
I’m caught in between, with a fading dream

Freddie

I’m just a singer with a song
How can I try to right the wrong?
For just a singer with a melody
I’m caught in between, with a fading dream
Caught in between, with a fading dream
Caught in between, with a fading dream

I My Defence

Oh what on Earth, Oh what on Earth
How do I try
Do we live or die?

Freddie

Oh help me God
Please help me
