Silver Springs Lyrics

You could be my silver springs,
Blue-green colors flashing,
I would be your only dream,
Your shining Autumn ocean crashing,

And did you say she was pretty?
And did you say that she loves you?
Baby, I don't wanna know (no, no,no),

    This song has the same cruel meanings as "Dreams",Stevies' pissed that Linsay dumped her.

    I believe this song caused Stevie Nicks and Mick Fleetwood to fall out with each other for a while.

    Despite this fact, it remains one of my favourite Stevie Nicks songs, especially since I've been lucky enough to see her perform it live, both with FM and solo. It made me cry on both occasions.

    Again, a song I've known since I was a young girl, for some reason.

    It has always been, for me, a song of unrequited love or betrayal. It just depends on my mood at the time. If I'm feeling vulnerable and emotional then the verses are more meaningful to me ('You could be my silver springs, my blue green colours flashing. I would be your only dream, your shining Autumn, ocean crashing.

    And did you say she was pretty? And did you say that she loves you? Baby I don't want to know.')

    Other times, if I'm just P'd off, it's the chorus that resonates with me. I know my man can't forget me. Even if he did, I'd get to him in his dreams. This is only when I'm angry with the world though, I'm not always this way. ('Time put a spell on you and 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, was I just a fool?
    You'll never get away from the sound of a woman who loves you, give me just a chance....')

    What can I say? I can't think of another song,like this one, that I can relate to no matter what mood I'm in. If I could meet Stevie, I would simply say 'Thankyou, you gifted genious!!' xx :)
