"Long Distance Winner"

written by Stevie Nicks

copyright 1973 Buckingham Nicks Music\Donna Marts Music

[available on Buckingham Nicks and Enchanted Box Set]

Long Distance Winner" was very much dealing with Lindsey…I adore you, but you're difficult, and I'll stay here with you, but you're still difficult!

Sunflowers and your face fascinate me

You love only the tallest trees

I come running down the hill

But your fast, you're the winner

Long distance winner

Not unlike the blue-white fire

You burn brightly in spite of yourself

I bring the water down to you

But you're too hard to touch

You're too hard to touch

Love somebody, save their soul

Tie them to your Heaven, erase their Hell

Save the lifestyle if you feel it

Don't try to change them, you never will

Sunflowers and your face fascinate me

You go into the dusty pink day

I come calling unto you

But you run

You're the winner

Long distance winner

 

 

"Frozen Love"

written by Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks

copyright 1973 Buckingham Nicks Music\Donna Marts Music

[available on Buckingham Nicks]

You may not be as strong as me

And I may not care to teach you

It may be hard to keep up with me

I'll always be able to reach you

And if you go forward (if you go forward)

I'll meet you there

And if you climb up through the cold freezing air

Look down below you

Search out above

And cry out to life for a frozen love

Cry love

Life gave me you; the change was made

There's no beginning over

You are not happy but what is love?

Hate gave you me for a love

And if you go forward (if you go forward)

I'll meet you there

And if you climb up through the cold freezing air

Look down below you

Search out above

And cry out to life for a frozen love

Cry love

 

"Crystal"

written by Stevie Nicks

copyright 1973 Buckingham Nicks Music\Donna Marts Music

[available on Buckingham Nicks and Fleetwood Mac (The White Album)]

Do you always trust your first initial feeling

Special knowledge holds true, bears believing

 I turned around and the water was closing all around, like a glove

Like the love that had finally finally found me

Then I knew in the crystalline knowledge of you

Dove me through the mountains

Through the crystal-like clear water fountain

Dove me like magnet

To the sea

To the sea

 How the faces of love have changed turning the pages

And I have page, oh, but you, you remain ageless

 I turned around and the water was closing all around, like a glove

Like the love that had finally finally found me

Then I knew in the crystalline knowledge of you

Dove me through the mountains

Through the crystal-like clear water fountain

Dove me like magnet

To the sea

To the sea

 

 

"Landslide"

written by Stevie Nicks

copyright 1975 Gentoo Music

[available on Fleetwood Mac (The White Album)]

 I took my love, I took it down

Climbed a mountain and I turned around

And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills

'till the landslide brought me down

 Oh, mirror in the sky

What is love

Can the child within my heart rise above

Can I sail through the changing ocean tides

Can I handle the seasons of my life

I don't know

I don't know

 Well, I've been afraid of changing

'cause I've built my life around you

But time makes you bolder

Even children get older

And I'm getting older too

 Oh, take my love, take it down

Climb a mountain and turn around

If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills

Well the landslide will bring it down

 If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills

Well the landslide will bring it down

 

"Silver Springs"

written by Stevie Nicks

copyright 1976 Barbara Nicks Music

[available on 25 Years- The Chain Box Set and The Dance]

Silver Springs" was all about me and Lindsey, you know. I mean, he didn't write beautiful love songs about me but I did write some beautiful love songs about him.

You could be my silver spring

Blue-green colors flashing

I would be your only dream

 You're shining autumn

Ocean crashing

And don't say that she's pretty

And did you say that she loved you

Baby, I don't want to know

 So I begin not to love you

Turn 'round, see me running

I say I loved you years ago

But tell myself you never loved me

 No…

And don't say that she's pretty

And did you say that she loved you

Baby, I don't want to know

 Oh no…

 And can you tell me was it worth it

Baby, I don't want to know

 Time cast a spell on you

But you won't forget me

I know I could've loved you

But you would not let me

 I'll follow you down 'till the sound

Of my voice will haunt you

(Give me just a chance)

You'll never get away from the sound

Of the woman that loves you

(Was I just a fool)

 I'll follow you down 'till the sound

Of my voice will haunt you

(Give me just a chance)

You'll never get away from the sound

Of the woman that loves you

(Was I just a fool)

 You could be my silver spring

My blue-green colors flashing

 

 "The Chain"

lyrics by Stevie Nicks

music by Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie, John McVie, Stevie Nicks

copyright 1977 Welsh Witch Music\Now Sounds Music\Gentoo Music

[available on Rumours]

Listen to the wind blow

Watch the sun rise

Run in the shadows

Damn your love damn your lies

And if you don't love me now

You will never love me again

I can still hear you saying

You would never break the chain

And if you don't love me now

You will never love me again

I can still here you saying

You would never break the chain

Listen to the wind blow

Down comes the night

Run in the shadows

Damn the dark damn the light

And if you don't love me now

You will never love me again

I can still hear you saying

You would never break the chain

And if you don't love me now

You will never love me again

I can still here you saying

You would never break the chain

Chains keep us together

Running in the shadows

Chains keep us together

Running in the shadows

Chains keep us together

 

"Dreams"

written by Stevie Nicks

copyright 1977 Welsh Witch Music

[available on Rumours]

Now here you go again

You say you want your freedom

Well who am I to keep you down

It's only right that you should

Play the way you feel it

But listen carefully to the sound

Of your loneliness

Like a heartbeat…drives you mad

In the stillness of remembering what you had

And what you lost…

And what you had…

And what you lost…

 

Thunder only happens when it's raining

Players only love you when they're playing

Say…Women…they will come and they will go

When the rain washes you clean…you'll know

 

Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions

I keep my visions to myself

It's only me

Who wants to wrap around your dreams and…

Have you any dreams you'd like to sell?

Dream of loneliness…

Like a heartbeat…drives you mad…

In the stillness of remembering what you had…

And what you lost

And what you had…

And what you lost

 

Thunder only happens when it's raining

Players only love you when they're playing

Say…Women…they will come and they will go

When the rain washes you clean…you'll know

 

 

"I Don't Want to Know"

written by Stevie Nicks

copyright 1977 Welsh Witch Music

[available on Rumours]

"I Don¹t Want to Know" was just a whole, you know, "I don't care" song.

I don't want to know the reasons why

Love keeps right on walking down the line

I don't want to stand between you and love

Honey, I just want you to feel fine

 

Finally baby

The truth has come down now

Take a listen to your spirit

It's crying out loud

Trying to believe

You say you love me, but you don't know

You got me rocking and a-reeling

Oh

 

I don't want to know the reasons why

Love keeps right on walking down the line

I don't want to stand between you and love

Honey, I just want you to feel fine

 

Finally baby

The truth has been told

Now you tell me that I'm crazy

That's nothing I don't know

Trying to survive

 

You say you love me, but you don't know

You got me rocking and a-reeling

 

I don't want to know the reasons why

Love keeps right on walking down the line

I don't want to stand between you and love

Honey, take a little time

"Gold Dust Woman"

written by Stevie Nicks

copyright 1977 Welsh Witch Music

[available on Rumours]

"Gold Dust Woman" was my symbolic look at going through a bad relationship.

Rock on- gold dust woman

Take your silver spoon

And dig your grave

 

Heartless challenge

Pick your path and I'll pray

 

Wake up in the morning

See your sunrise- loves- to go down

Lousy lovers- pick their prey

But they never cry out loud

 

Did she make you cry

Make you break down

Shatter your illusions of love

Is it over now- do you know how

Pick up the pieces and go home

 

Rock on- ancient queen

Follow those who pale

In your shadow

 

Ruler make bad lovers

You better put your kingdom up for sale

 

Did she make you cry

Make you break down

Shatter your illusions of love

Is it over now- do you know how

Pick up the pieces and go home

 

Oh pale shadow of a woman

Oh black widow

Oh pale shadow of a woman

Oh black widow

Oh pale shadow…she's a dragon

Gold dust woman

Running in the shadows…

 

"Angel"

written by Stevie Nicks

copyright 1979 Welsh Witch Music

[available on Tusk]

I wanted to write a song that was just silly…but in the end it wasn't silly, it wasn't silly at all.

Sometimes

The most beautiful things

The most innocent things

And many of those dreams

Pass us by

Keep passing up by

 

You feel good

I said it's funny that you understood

I knew you would

When you were good

You were very, very good

 

I still look up

When you walk in the room

I've the same wide eyes

They tell the story

Try not to reach out

When you turn 'round

And you say hello

And we both pretend

There was an end

But there was no ending

 

So I close my eyes softly

'til I become that part of the wind

That we all long for sometime

And to those that I love

Like a ghost through a fog

Like a charmed hour

And a haunted song

And the angel of my dreams

 

I still look up

I try hard not to look up

That girl was me

Track a ghost through the fog

A charmed hour- a haunted song

Track a ghost through the fog, baby

 

Ooh you try hard

But you'll never catch me-- yeah

 

"Storms"

written by Stevie Nicks

copyright 1979 Welsh Witch Music

[available on Tusk]

Every night that goes between

I feel a little less

As you slowly go away from me

This is only another test

 

Every day you do not come

Your softness fades away

Did I ever really care that much

Is there anything left to say

 

Every hour of fear that I spend

My body tries to cry

Living through each empty night

A deadly call inside

 

I haven't felt this way I feel

Since many a year ago

But in those years and the lifetimes past

I did not deal with the road

 

And I did not deal with you I know

Tho the love has always been

So I search to find an answer there

So I can truly win

 

Every hour of fear that I spend

My body tries to cry

Living through each empty night

A deadly call inside

 

So I try to say

Goodbye my friend

I'd like to leave you with something warm

But never have I been a blue calm sea

I have always been a storm

Always been a storm

Oh always been a storm

 

We were frail

She said

"Everynight he will break your heart"

I should have known from the first

I'd be the broken hearted

But I loved you from the start

Save us…

And not all the prayers in the world- could save us

 

 

"Straight Back"

written by Stevie Nicks

copyright 1983 Welsh Witch Music

[available on Mirage]

 What can I say this time

Which card shall I play

The dream is not over

The dream is just away

And you will fly like some little wing straight back to the sun

The dream was not over

The dream has just begun

The dream has just begun

 

Fingers find the ivory keys

And a song begins to begin

Like a wolf on the run

And you will find, while in the wind, something that you lost

The dream was not over, no

The dream was only lost

(hours and hours of waiting for you, so strong and so fleeting)

The dream has just begun

(and hours of waiting for you in hopes of meeting)

The dream has just begun

(this way)

Well, the dream has just begun

 

She remembers how good it can be

He remembers a melody

Ah, in the shadow of my shadow in a gleam

(hours and hours of waiting for you so strong and so fleeting)

The dream has just begun

(hours and hours of waiting this way meeting, me)

Hours of waiting for you

(so strong and so fleeting)

The dream has just begun…

(meeting this way)

Straight back now

(hours and hours of waiting so strong and so fleeting)

Hours and hours waiting this way

Hours and hours of waiting this way

Straight back

Straight back

Straight back…yeah!

 

He remembers a melody

He remembers how good it can be

 

 

"When I See You Again"

written by Stevie Nicks

copyright 1987 Welsh Witch Music

[available on Tango in the Night]

When I see you again

Will it be the same

When I see you again

Will it be over

When I see you again

Will your great eyes still say

 

What's the matter baby

What's the matter baby

What's the matter baby, baby, baby

What's the matter baby

What's the matter baby

What's the matter baby, baby

 

So she walks slowly

Down the hall

There are many doors

In the hallway

She stares through the stairs

 

Ooh there are many things

To stare at these days

If she sees him again

Will your very best friend

Will your very best friend

Oh, have you been replaced

By some other

 

What's the matter baby

What's the matter baby

What's the matter baby, baby, baby

What's the matter baby

What's the matter baby

What's the matter baby, baby

 

And the dream says I want you

And the dream is gone

So she stays up nights on end

Well at least there is a

Dream left

 

If I see you again

Will it be over

If I see you again

Will it be the same

If I see you again

Will it be over

Again and again

Over and over

 

"Bella Donna"

written by Stevie Nicks

copyright 1980 Welsh Witch Music

[available on Bella Donna]

 You can ride high atop your pony

I know you won't fall…

'cause the whole thing's phoney

You can fly swinging from your trapeze

Scaring all the people…

but you'll never scare me

 

Bella Donna…

And we fight…for the northern star

 

No speed limit…this is the fast lane

It's just the way that it is here

And you say…I never thought it could

 

Bella donna…we fight…

for the northern star

 

And the lady's feeling

Like the moon that she loved

Don't you know that the starts are

A part of us

And the lady's feeling

Just like the moon that she loved

 

And you say…I never thought it could

Bella donna…

Come in out of the darkness…

 

You are in love with…

And I'm ready to sail…

It's just a feeling…

Sort of captures your soul

Bella donna…

 

And the woman may be awestruck

And the woman may truly care

but the woman is so tired…

So the woman disappears

 

Come in out of the darkness…

 

Bella donna…my soul…

 

Don't change…baby please don't change

And you say..,

and your face becomes thin

You never thought it could

Come in out of the darkness

Bella donna…

 

You are in love with

And I'm ready to sail

It's just a feeling…

 

"Kind of Woman"

written by Stevie Nicks

[available on Bella Donna]

I was afraid that women would go for him because he was so darling.

Temptation falls in your path

No hesitation why you ask

You have another waiting at home

And yes she matters to you

Kind of woman that'll haunt you

Kind of woman that'll haunt you

She matters to you

Kind of woman that'll haunt you

She matters to you

 

You didn't mean to meet her you cry

Oh but the sun goes down every night

She came to you when you were alone

And yes she matters to you

Kind of woman that'll haunt you

Kind of woman that'll haunt you

She matters to you

 

I promised myself…a long time ago

It would be difficult to let you go

If not at least within

The touch of my fingers-

It was close to being

In heaven-

Kind of woman that'll haunt you

To being in heaven

Kind of woman that'll haunt you

Is to be…in heaven

Kind of woman that'll haunt you

I know I know

 

"Outside the Rain"

written by Stevie Nicks

copyright 1980 Welsh Witch Music

[available on Bella Donna]

"Outside the Rain" is like a sequel to "Dreams".

 Outside the rain

And the heart skips a beat

So you're lonely

Creature of the night

It's been almost a week

Can you love me only

 

Look at me, for a very long time

Long enough to know

Love is a word- I've been trying to find

Words don't matter

They don't matter at all

 

Maybe it's only a dream

I don't want to feel that

Well it's one more link- in the chain

I don't believe that

 

So you're still lonely

You say that it's been forever

Maybe you never knew me-

Maybe you thought that

I'd never change- but

You know I'm changing

-You're wrong-

 

And it's been like dying-

No love's that hard to find-

And I'm tired of-

I'm tired of trying

 

Outside the rain

And the heart skips a beat

So you're lonely

 

Look in my eyes

Touch my face

Baby, there's no one

That can take my place

 

Look in my eyes, touch my face

Baby there's no one that

Can ever replace that- heartache

Take away that heartache

 

Love is a word that some entertain

If you find it

You have won the game

 

Somebody said

"Outside the rain…"

 

"The Highwayman"

written by Stevie Nicks

copyright 1975 Welsh Witch Music

[available on Bella Donna]

 Alas he was the highwayman

The one that comes and goes

And only the highway-woman

Keeps up with the likes of those

And she in all her magic

With hands as quick as light

Took him to be a challenge

And went into the night

 

And he in all his glory

Was far ahead of her

But she was never sorry

For wishes that would burn

Enter competition

She chases beneath the moon

Her horse is like a dragonfly

She is just a fool

 

And she wonders is this real

Or does she just want to be Queen

And he fights the way he feels

Is this the end of the dream

 

And then he sees her coming

Heartbeats on the wind

Considers slowing down

But then…he could never win

And she…out in the distance

Sees him against the sky

A pale and violent rider

A dream begun in wine

 

And she wonders is this real

Or does she just want to be Queen

And he fights the way he feels

Is this the end of a the dream

 

A dream as the thunder wakes her

And her highwayman disappears

on a life he already lived before

In eyes welled with tears

 

Today and still today they ride

Will they ever win

He the glory…

She the love…

Still they try again

He the glory…

She the love…

Still they try again

He the glory…

She the love…

And still they…try…again

 

"Ghosts"

written by Stevie Nicks

copyright 1989 Welsh Witch Music

[available on The Other Side of the Mirror]

And the rain was there…

There were many nights…

And a few of them were all that you dreamed of

Love was the thing…

And you feel as if someone were following you

But you know you are wrong…

It's just the ghost of the past of what you want to be

And the ghost of the past that you live in

 

It's just the ghost of what you really want

And the ghost of the past that you live in

And the ghost of the future that you are frightened of

So you look to your guardian angel

 

So long ago I was an innocent…

It had nothing to do with age

One day they were lovers…one day they were friends

There was nothing else to say

 

And a few of them were all you really dreamed of

Love was the thing…

So the silver-haired girl looks for escapism

 

To feel the empty spaces that she's feeling

She depends on her music like a husband

She knows it's no good to fall in love again

One day they were lovers…one day they were friends

There was nothing else to say

 

It's just the ghost of what you want to be

And the ghost of the past that you live in

And the ghost of the future that you are frightened of

So you look to your guardian angel

 

So you look to your guardian angel

Some of them are here on Earth

Well some are way up there in heaven

 

So you look…to your guardian angel

Some of them are here on Earth…

Well some are…way up there in heaven…heaven…

"Blue Denim"

written by Stevie Nicks

copyright 1992, 1994 Welsh Witch Music

[available on Street Angel]

I saw him the other day

I saw him again yesterday

I wonder if I'll ever see him again

He reminded me of blue denim

 

Blue-grey eyes they change with the color

Change with the sun

They run with the sight

Change with the wind, but they're always bright

Bright eyes

Blue denim

 

I knew him another day

I knew him another way

In some ways he'd forgotten me

In many ways he got to me

I turned away so he couldn't see

I turned away, it could never be

I never thought he would walk away

But I lost him again yesterday

 

Blue-grey eyes they change with the color

Change with the sun

They run with the sight

Change with the wind, but they're always bright

Bright eyes

Blue denim

 

Understanding me

Understanding you

It's not an easy thing to do

Understanding me

And understanding you

It's not an easy thing to do…

 

And I will never forget

The last time I saw you

Like a photograph so rare

Ooh like a painting

No I will never forget

The last time I saw you

Never to be

Not you

Not me

No no

 

Blue-grey eyes they change with the color

Change with the sun

They run with the sight

Change with the wind, but they're always bright

Bright eyes

Blue denim

 

So I'm going away for a little while to remember how to feel

And if I find the answer, I swear I'll come back and get you

I'll come back and get you

I'll come back and get you

 

"Without You"

[unavailable] [a duet of Lindsey and Stevie's]

In my life

There's been a few things

Worth singing about you

Well, I'd never dreamed that I'd know you

Strange are the ways

Of a very complicated world

And there you are

 

Come to me now

And I'll never know another

You are sung for me

A melody

Ingrained in my soul

Sing, sing your song

For my ears, they only hear you

If I never knew the likes of you

Where would I be without you

Without you

Without you

Yeah…

 

Come to me now

And I'll never know another

You are sung for me

A melody

Ingrained in my soul

Sing, sing your song

For my ears, they only hear you

If I never knew the likes of you

Where would I be without you

Without you

Without you

Yeah…

 

 

"Cathouse Blues"

written by Stevie Nicks

[unavailable]

I wear the high airs

The high heeled shoes

Whoa…

Darlin' it's hard to be surrounded

Where the women are lazy

And the men are rude

I got the cat walk, don't talk blues

I creep on cat's feet

I don't speak loose

Wrap yourself in velvet

Forget we ever met

I got the clothes

And the cathouse blues

 

Blue-grey eyes, they say

I guess you don't remember

I guess that I was younger

To say the cat sleeps alone

Sleeps only in the sun

But shields away the night

And she'll be gone

 

Singing the cathouse blues

I need some new red velvet shoes

I'm still a dreamer's fancy

They say I'm pretty classy

I'm just a feline silky cat come true

I'm just a feline silky cat come true

I'm just a feline silky cat come true

Yeah…

[available on Enchanted Box Set]

"it's about Lindsey wanting more from me in our relationship…"

Though he sat

In someone's shadow

Her eyes, her mystery

But that's not so different then the way that he says

Don't hide your eyes from me that way baby!

 

In his heart, he wishes her stardom

His eyes want for her much more

That's not so different than the way that he says don't hide

He says there are so very few starts left

 

Don't hide behind your hair!

It's a bit of golden braid

Easy come the tears

You'll see a pathway

Ending with a doorway

She sits toward the doorway

She's been waiting there all day

For all these years!

 

In his heart

He wishes her stardom

His eyes want for her much more

Than the way that he says don't hide

You're eyes hide from me that way, baby!

Don't hide them!

 

Don't hide behind your hair!

It's a bit of golden braid

Easy come the tears

You'll see a pathway

Ending with a doorway

She sits toward the doorway

She's been waiting there all day

For all these years!

 

In his heart he wishes to forget her

He'd like to make her better

And hold her like a child

 

In his heart, he wishes her stardom

His eyes want for her much more

That's not so different than the way that he says don't hide

He says there are so very few starts left

 

Don't hide behind your hair!

It's a bit of golden braid

Easy come the tears

You'll see a pathway

Ending with a doorway

She sits toward the doorway

She's been waiting there all day

For all these years!

 

Don't hide your eyes that way

Don't hide anything, not anymore

 

Because I never did not love you!

I never did run from you

In a dream I said to you that

I'd always love you!

[unavailable]

"It's about two people who just could not work together…oil and water."

The ladybug and the goldfish

Fall in love with eachother

But they could not work it out

They couldn't get together

Ladybug said "I can't swim"

Goldfish die on land

Ladybug swung down like a swing

Kissed him with her wing

One touch and the promise was made

Ladybug's love was real

Goldfish cried tears of sadness

How was he to feel

How was he to feel

And the days turned into years

Ladybug's sadness grew

She took her love to the water's edge

She did not know what to do

What to do

Goldfish lived in his deep water home

So much his and so fine

Still he lived his life alone

Ladybug lived in his mind

Ladybug lived in his mind

Oh..

Lady, lady

I love you

My life is hollow without you

Can you love me without loving

Can I love you without you

Can I love you without you

Can I love you without you
