Lost and Found

I have been racking my brain trying to find a song to sing as a medley with Freddie Mercury's beautiful but very short Nevermore. That song is from 1974, so my first instinct was to use Lily of the Valley, from the same year. Lily is not as strong a lyric, though, so it wasn't working. Today the solution hit me: the singer is led down "the path of Nevermore" when his lover leaves him, so now he's lost. I'll follow it with Guide Me Home, soaringly Puccini, written in 1987 for Freddie's album with Montserrat Caballe.
