There's no denying Stevie Nicks has a way with words. In honor of International Women's Day (March 8), we're looking back at some of the rock and roll songstress's most poignant lyrics. From her time with Fleetwood Mac to her own solo ventures, Nicks' lyrics really have a way of moving people. Here are some of her most beautiful lyrics.
For me, it's the only life /That I've ever known/And love is only one fine star away/Even though the living/Is sometimes laced with lies/It's alright/The feeling remains/Even after the glitter fades
Thunder only happens when it's raining/Players, only love you when they're playing/They say women, they will come and they will go/When the rain washes you clean, you'll know/You'll know
The clouds never expect it when it rains/But the sea changes colors/But the sea does not change/So with the slow, graceful flow of age/I went forth with an age old desire to please/On the edge of seventeen
She is like a cat in the dark/And then she is the darkness
So I close my eyes softly/Til I become that part of the wind/That we all long for sometimes./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.
Oh, mirror in the sky/What is love?/Can the child within my heart rise above?/Can I sail through the changin’ ocean tides?/Can I handle the seasons of my life?
Time casts a spell on you, but you won’t forget me/I know I could have loved you, but you would not let me/I’ll follow you down ’til the sound of my voice will haunt you/You’ll never get away from the sound of the woman that loves you.
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.
Run around like a spirit in flight/Fearlessness is fearlessness/I will not forget this night
Lightning strikes/Maybe once, maybe twice/I still see your bright eyes
I don't want to know the reasons why/Love keeps right on walking on down the line/I don't want to stand between you and love/Honey, take a little time.
You're the poet in my heart/Never change, and don't you ever stop
The bright light is lying down/The earth and the sea and the sky/Is at rest with the ocean/And the days go by
Heartbreak of the moment is not endless
But that time I saw you/I knew with you to light my nights/Somehow I'd get by/First time I saw you
And the rain comes down/There's no pain and there's no doubt/It was easy to say/I believed in you everyday
