Fleetwood Mac – “Landslide”
And I saw my reflection in the snow-covered hills/ Till the landslide brought me down.
Stevie Nicks was only 27 when she wrote one of the most poignant and astute meditations on how people change with time, and the fear of having to give up everything you’ve worked for.
The 40 best song lyrics, from Kendrick Lamar to Nirvana
‘Here is a thoroughly unscientific but completely from the heart list of the greatest lyrics ever. They run from the clever to the overblown, the gritty to the gaudy. What they all have in common is the ability to make you stop dead in your tracks and feel as if your world has briefly been tipped head over heels.’
What else should I be
And you could have it all/ My empire of dirt/ I will let you down/ I will make you hurt.
War, children, it’s just a shot away/ It’s just a shot away
At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet/ And a freight train running through the/ Middle of my head / Only you can cool my desire
Well you know that I love to live with you/ but you make me forget so very much/ I forget to pray for the angels/ and then the angels forget to pray for us
The words we speak become the house we live in. -Hafiz
