Let Me Live è la terza traccia dell’album Made In Heaven, pubblicato dai Queen nel 1995 a distanza di tre anni e mezzo dalla morte del vocalist nonché leader Freddie Mercury. Ciò nonostante, la sua voce partecipa alla canzone in quanto nei mesi immediatamente antecedenti la sua scomparsa lo stesso Mercury ne aveva incisa la prima strofa ed altri pezzi sparsi. Così la seconda è cantata dal batterista Roger Taylor mentre la terza dal chitarrista Brian May; nel ritornello le tre voci si uniscono ad un coro gospel.
La canzone, nella sua versione definitiva, si tratta in realtà di una rielaborazione di una traccia registrata originariamente nel 1983 dal gruppo assieme a Rod Stewart, ma che mai venne pubblicata. Curiosità: il titolo scelto era in realtà “Piece Of My Heart”, ma fu in seguito cambiato per non confondere la canzone con quella incisa nel 1967 da Emma Franklin (e che avrebbe rischiato di causare dispute sul copyright).
