Fleetwood Mac: Storms Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
As you slowly go away from me, this is only another test.
Every night you do not come, your softness fades away.
Did I ever really care that much? Is there anything left to...
anonymous May 8th 2017 report
It's about Lyndsey as most of her songs are.
This is, without any doubt, the one Stevie Nicks song that's guaranteed to bring me to tears every time I listen to it. It is beautiful, she sings it beautifully angel like, and the only thing that could make me like it more would be to see her sing/perform it live!
In this song, she does exactly the the same thing that I do in life. This is, to find fault with myself rather than the other person. ('...but in those years and lifetimes past, I did not deal with the road. And I did not deal with you, I know, though the love has always been. So I search to find an answer there, so I can truly win.'
Stevie's lyrics are so deliciously, melancholy and miserable that you almost enjoy the pain and misery she is singing (practically sobbing in the end) about. After all, sometimes the throes of misery are as wonderful to feel as are the heights of happiness. ('She says every night he will break your heart. I should have known from the start, I'd be the broken hearted.' And the following, 'And not all the prayers in the world can save us.') She is positively grief stricken at the end.
Whoever she is singing/writing about, she is thoroughly, utterly heartbroken and devastated that this relationship ended the way that it did. Could it be Lindsey Buckingham? I like to think that it is. Theirs was a volatile relationship in which they both gave as good as they got, so all the pain that the relationship caused her could easily have inspired this masterpiece of misery.
Of course, I have never read anything on the background of this song so I could be barking up the wrong tree, reading to much into it, and I'm sure that Stevie's meaning of the song is totally different, however, this is what it means to me. When I need a good cry I just turn my music player to this gem of a song! Thankyou Stevie!! xx :)
