Stevie Nicks: Leather and Lace Meaning

Song Released: 1981

Featuring: Don Henley

Leather and Lace Lyrics

Is love so fragile...
And the heart so hollow
Shatter with words...
Impossible to follow
You’re saying I’m fragile... I try not to be
I search only... for something I can’t see

I have my own life... and I am stronger
Than you know
But I...

    The song is about two lovers reflecting on their first meeting. Although Nicks did in fact date Henley it's possible this song was not written about him.

    Stevie duets with former boyfriend Don Henley (Eagles) in this one. Nicks said that the lyrics were really about her relationship with band mate Lyndsay Buckingham (yes a guy) and Don never knew it.

    This song could also be about a guy who calls a call girl up to his room. prostitutes often were lace and if its really a hard core gal she wears leather.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
