Dreams - Fleetwood Mac
Now here you go again, you say “You want your freedom”
Well who am I to keep you down?
It’s only right you play the way you feel it, but listen carefully to the sound of the loneliness like a heartbeat, drives you mad, in the stillness of remembering what you had, and what you lost.
and what you had.
Thunder only happens when it’s raining.
Players only love you when they’re playing.
Say “Women, they will come and they will go.”
When the rain washes you clean, You’ll know… You’ll know.
Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions. I keep my visions to myself.
Stephanie Lynn “Stevie” Nicks penned a song. A song with lyrics so simple yet hauntingly true. Stevie Nicks is a prolific American songwriter who beholds a contralto vocal tone that makes her sound unforgettable. Although, as a solo artist Stevie has sold over 120 million albums worldwide. She is best known ultimately for her work with the band Fleetwood Mac, whom she joined in 1975.
“Dreams” remains to be the only U.S., #1 hit for the group, Fleetwood Mac. “Dreams”, was the second single released from the 1977 album “Rumours” which ultimately produced four Top 10 singles, was certified Diamond by the RIAA and sold over 40 million copies worldwide.
Legend has it, the members of Fleetwood Mac were all going through emotional and trying times in their romantic lives when “Dreams”, was written. In my opinion, it is one of the most moving songs ever written of love when it is in the painful stages of upheaval. Simply timeless.

Ne-Yo - Make it Work
You understand me
At least you say you do
Lately thats enough for me
Looking for perfect
Surrounded by artificial
You’re the closest thing to real i’ve seen
Sure, everyone has their problems
Thats a given
Yours are the easiest to tolerate
This wasn’t what we was wanting
How we’re living
But let’s take this good enough and turn it to great
This can only be as good as we both make it
Guess sometimes its gonna hurt (yes sometimes its gonna hurt)
We can be as happy as we want to be girl
But we gotta make it work
We gotta make it work…
His voice fills my being. Hollowed before..no words to express but now his sadness drowns in me deep. Leaving faded pictures undeveloped; these memories tenderize the deceased. I wonder if it ever really happened? This stunning man haunts my heart…stirring up spirits of breath, eyes and memory. I know what he croons of.. far too well.
I’ll wait // so show me why you’re strong
Ignore everybody else // We’re alone now
