Stevie Nicks Lyrics
 
"Crystal"
Stevie Nicks
  ----------------
  Do you always trust your first initial feeling
  Special knowledge holds truth 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
  Drove me thru the mountains
  Thru the crystal-like clear water fountain
  Drove me like a magnet
  To the sea
  How the faces of love have changed turning
  the pages
  And I have changed 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
  Drove me thru the mountains
  Thru the crystal-like clear water fountain
  Drove me like a magnet
  To the sea
"Gypsy"
Stevie Nicks
--------------
  So I'm back, to the velvet
  underground
  Back to the floor, that I love
  To a room with some lace
  and paper flowers
  Back to the gypsy
  that I was
  To the gypsy...
  that I was
  And it all comes down to you
  Well, you know that it does
  Well, lightning strikes,
  maybe once, maybe twice
  Ah, and it lights up the night
  And you see your gypsy
  You see your gypsy
  To the gypsy that remains
  faces freedom with a little fear
  I have no fear, I have only love
  And if I was a child
  And the child was enough
  Enough for me to love
  Enough to love
  She is dancing away from me now
  She was just a wish
  She was just a wish
  And a memory is all
  that is left for you now
  You see your gypsy
  You see your gypsy
  Lightning strikes,
  maybe once, maybe twice
  And it all comes down to you
  And it all comes down to you
  Lightning strikes,
  maybe once, maybe twice
  And it all comes down to you
  I still see your bright eyes,
  bright eyes
  And it all comes down to you
  I still see your bright eyes,
  bright eyes
  And it all comes down to you
  I still see your bright eyes,
  bright eyes
  (She was just a wish)
  (She was just a wish)
  And it all comes down to you
  Lightning strikes,
  maybe once, maybe twice
  And it all comes down to you
"Landslide"
 Stevie Nicks
----------------
  I took my love, I took it down
  Climbed a mountain and I turned around
  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
  Well, I've been afraid of changing
  'Cause I've built my life around you
  But time makes you get 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.
"Talk to Me"
 C. Sandford
   Stevie Nicks
---------------
  I can see we're thinkin' bout the same things
  And I can see your expression when the phone
  rings
  We both know there's something happening here
  Well, there's no sense in dancing round the subject
  A wound gets worse when it's treated with neglect
  Don't turn around there's nothing here to fear
  You can talk to me
  Talk to me
  You can talk to me
  You can set your secrets free, baby
  Dusty words lying under carpets
  Seldom heard well must you keep your secrets
  Locked inside hidden safe from view
  Well, is it all that hard
  Is it all that tough
  Well, I've shown you all my cards now isn't that enough
  You can hide your hurt
  But, there's something you can do
  You can talk to me
  Talk to me...talk to me
  I can set your secrets free, baby
  La, la, la, la...
  Though we lay face to face and cheek to cheek
  Our voices stray from the common ground where they
  could meet
  The walls run high, to veil a swelling tear
  Oh, let the walls burn down, set your secrets free
  You can break their bounds, cause you're safe with me
  You can lose your doubt, cause you'll find no danger
  not here
  You can talk to me
  Talk to me
  You can talk to me
  You can set your secrets free, baby
  Oh, I can see you running...I can see you running
  I can see you running all the way back home
  I can see your expression when the phone rings
  And I can see that you're thinkin' bout the same things
  Is it all that hard
  Is it all that tough
  Well, you've taken all there is now baby
  Isn't that enough
  Well, I can see you runnin'...I can see you runnin'
  All the way back
"Sweet Girl"
 Stevie Nicks
-------------------
 And he says, "What do you love to do?
  Outside your world,
  Who spends time with you
  From whom do you learn when you're not working... Sweet Girl....
  Where would you go if you had the time?
  Crossing some crazy state line somewhere?
  To whom do you cry
  When people are unkind... Sweet Girl
  I chose to dance across the stages of the world
  Everyone said I'd never learn
  I still hear your words
  I waited all my life for you....Sweet Girl
  I did try to come back and listen
  You never knew that I didn't wish it
  But I did hear every answer...every question
  It's all about protection
  Still through the sunlight days I wait
  Track a ghost through the fog
  The sun is burning me
  And you come running out in the wind with me
  The ocean is your blanket
  I chose to dance across the stages of the world
  Everyone said I'd never learn
  I still hear your words
  Well, I waited all my life for you
  I watched you fly across the world in a golden ball
  Many of the cities, I never saw at all
  Sometimes I think I was always on-call
  Sometimes even I am allowed to fall
  He says, come down here for a minute...Sweet Girl...
"Love's a Hard Game to Play"
B. Michaels, P. Schunk
  Stevie Nicks
-------------------
  Wake up my sweet child
  There's something I've got to say to you tonite
  It's time you took a look at me
  Cause there's so much more to me
  Than meets the eye
  Well, there's more to love than makin' time
  The harder you look the more you'll find
  It's never easy no matter what they say
  Chorus:
  Love's a hard game to play
  The heart's the price you pay
  Love's a hard game to play
  No matter what they say
  Win or lose, no matter what they say
  Love's a hard game to play
  The problem here is not my fear
  The trouble is you can't convince yourself
  For tonight, let's lose the past
  Make love last
  Put our worries up on the shelf
  We've been through thick and thin, and back again
  And we can endure love's sweet pain
  Remember, starting the fire is easy
  The hardest part is learning how to keep the flame
  Love's like walking a real fine line
  You get too close and you'll go blind
  Let go too long and it will all drift away
  Repeat Chorus:
  Just when I feel like I'm losin' you
  I hear them voices call
  They say it's better to have lost at love
  Than never to have loved at all
  Lose or win, stand or fall
  Well, there's more to love than makin' time
  The harder you look, the more you'll find
  It's never easy, no matter what they say
"If You Ever Did Believe"
Stevie Nicks
----------------
  You've left me now
  and it's seasoned my soul
  And with every step you take,
  I watch another part of you go...
  I continue to build a wall...
  You were so strong,
  I fell to my knees...
  And I don't think I can handle this at all...
  One more night
  I'd like to lie and hold you
  Yes and feel...
  If I could make you sigh,
  I'd like to be there for you--
  Have you forgotten me?
  And the days go by
  Doing nothing about them...
  How much time
  will I have to spend?
  My mind won't rest
  and I don't sleep
  Not even in my dreams...
  If you ever did believe,
  for my sake...
  If you ever did believe....
  And the days go by
  Doing nothing about them...
  How much time
  will I have to spend?
  ooo....ooo.....ooo...
  Ooo baby don't leave me
  ooo..ooo...ooo...ooo
  I'm down on my knees...
  ooo..ooo...ooo...ooo
  begging you please...
  ooo...ooo...ooo...ooo
  baby don't leave me....
  Did you ever believe?
"Sisters of the Moon"
   Stevie Nicks
 -----------------------------
  Intense silence
  As she walked in the room
  Her black robes trailing
  Sister of the moon
  And a black widow spider makes
  More sound than she
  And black moons in those eyes of hers
  Made more sense to me
  Heavy persuasion
  It was hard to breathe
  She was dark at the top of the stairs
  And she called to me
  And so I followed
  As friends often do
  I cared not for love, nor money
  I think she knew
  The people, they love her
  And still they are the most cruel
  She asked me
  Be my sister, sister of the moon
  Some call her sister of the moon
  Some say illusions are her game
  Wrap her in velvet
  Does anyone, ah, know her name
  So we make our choices
  When there is no choice
  And we listen to their voices
  Ignoring our own voice
"Sometimes It's a Bitch"
 j. bon jovi, b. falcon
Stevie Nicks
-----------------------
 Well I've run through rainbows and castles of candy
  I cried a river of tears from the pain
  I try to dance with what life has to hand me
  My partner's been pleasure...my partner's been pain
  There are days when I swear I could fly like an eagle
  And dark desperate hours that nobody sees
  My arms stretched triumphant on top of the mountain
  My head in my hands...down on my knees
  Sometimes it's a bitch...sometimes it's a breeze
  Sometimes love's blind...and sometimes it sees
  Sometimes it's roses...and, sometimes it's weeds
  Sometimes it's a bitch...sometimes it's a breeze
  I've reached in darkness and come out with treasure
  I've laid down with love and I woke up with lies
  What's it all worth only the heart can measure
  It's not what's in the mirror...but what's left inside
  Sometimes it's a bitch...sometimes it's a breeze
  Sometimes love's blind...and sometimes it sees
  Sometimes it's roses...and, sometimes it's weeds
  Sometimes it's a bitch...sometimes it's a breeze
  You gotta take it as it comes
  Sometimes it don't come easy
  I've run through rainbows and castles of candy
  And I've cried a river of tears from the pain
  I tried to dance with what life had to hand me
  And if I could...I'd do it all over again
  Sometimes it's a bitch...sometimes it's a breeze
  Sometimes love's blind...and sometimes it sees
  Sometimes it's roses...and, sometimes it's weeds
  Sometimes it's a bitch...sometimes it's a breeze
  Sometimes the picture just ain't what it seems
  You get what you want...but it's not what you need
  Sometimes it's a bitch...sometimes...it's a breeze
  Well it's a breeze...it's a breeze...it's a breeze...
"If I Were You"
   S. Nicks, R. Nowels
------------------------
    Baby how much closer could we be
  I swear you've become a part of me
  You are with me everywhere I go
  If you feel it I already know
  Everything I say to you is true
  I don't want to tell you what to do...
  But if I were you
  I would take the love I'm giving to you
  Oh if I were you
  Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
  If I were you
  I would trust in me like I trusted in you
  Oh, if I were you
  Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
  I know what you're dreaming when you sleep
  You have secrets I will always keep
  And in every morning when we arise
  I see my reflection in your eyes
  Every boy must learn to be a man
  Maybe I can help you, yes I can...
  But if I were you
  I would take the love I'm giving to you
  Oh if I were you
  Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
  If I were you
  I would trust in me like I trusted in you
  Oh, if I were you
  Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
  Well, I believe that love is a living thing
  Born into our destinies
  From a single moment of inspiration
  And as it grows it changes your life forever!
  But if I were you
  I would take the love I'm giving to you
  Oh if I were you
  Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
  If I were you
  I would trust in me like I trusted in you
  Oh, if I were you
  Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
