Song Lyric Sunday 6/24/18 – Dreams

Dream. A rather interesting prompt for Song Lyric Sunday and one I could have easily copped out on, but I’m going to do something different that just isn’t a no-brainer for me and doing something different. Sure, I could have done a redux from the first time I ever participated in this challenge, but I’m not.

Instead, I’m going with this 1977 song by Fleetwood Mac that I have loved for a long time. The structure is quite simple but it’s a nice little song anyway. So there then is the song simply titled “Dreams” (written by Stevie Nicks):

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

(Oooooh)

Oh, 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
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?
Dreams of loneliness…
Like a heartbeat drives you mad…
In the stillness of remembering
What you had
And what you lost…
What you had…
Ooh, what you lost

Thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know

Oh, 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
You’ll know
You will know
Oh, oh, oh you’ll know

So there you go. See you all next week!

  1. I saw Fleetwood Mac about 1977, first concert that costed more than $10! Great show!
    Fleetwood Mac and Tom Petty are two groups that, while I like each and every song on the album, I can’t listen to the whole album without taking it off. There’s something “too much” about them. I can’t explain it. every song alone is excellent, but I can’t handle the album.
