Stevie Nicks: Landslide Meaning

Landslide Lyrics

I took my love, I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
and 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...

    I think it's easy to understand that this song is about growing older and bring worried about change. She notices that children grow up and she knows she is growing older too. This makes her miss her youth. It is a beautiful song. My sister recently left for University and I think our whole family was thinking that there was not much time left until I graduate and follow in her footsteps. This made it difficult to watch her leave.

    The reason no one has sent in an interpretation is probably because it's so obvious. It is a self-reflective look at her life, of getting older. The landslide is her youth, her ego, her love affair, anything that goes away as she gets older and realizes it's all part of life. She wonders if she will be able to handle future challenges to come, and specifically references her dependence on a significant figure, whom I would guess was either Buckingham and /or her father. A recent live version released here in Phoenix (her hometown) has her introduce and dedicate the song thus, "This is for you, Daddy." I didn't do research for this, so anyone is welcome to correct me if she is quoted somewhere describing it differently.
