A Conversation for The Subtext of '39' by Queen

Lovely lyrics, I vaguely remember the song, though. I was more of a Hawkwind fan, so the posting about '39' immediately called to mind their song 'Spirit of the Age'.
I would have liked you to have been deep frozen, too
And waiting still as fresh in your flesh
For my return to Earth
But your father refused to sign the forms to freeze you
Let's see you'd be about sixty now
And long dead by the time I return to Earth
My time held dreams were full of you
As you were when I left
Its from Hawkwind's album 'Quark Strangeness and Charm'. One of the greatest bands for geeks, they wrote many songs with science fiction, fantasy, and science themes.
