I have to admit, I've always thought Stevie Nicks sounded like a billy goat and have never been much of a fan. Until lately, that is. I'm not sure if I've somehow grown in lyrical maturity and perception or it's time for another introspective growth spurt.
But, dang Stevie, you got some therapeutic aptitude. Let's reflect for a moment, shall we?
So I'm back to the velvet underground
Back to the floor that I love
To a room with some lace and paper flowers
Back to the gypsy that I was
Well, I've been afraid of changing
Cause I built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older
And I'm getting older too
No one knows
How I feel
What I say
Unless you read between my lines
And if I was a child
And the child was enough
Enough for me to love
Enough to love
These lyrics speak to the human experiences of loss, loneliness, facing unwanted change and rising above the ashes.
Ahhh. (Or, baaa...)
Stevie, I remember you from my childhood. I guess I just wasn't ready for your midlife introspection just yet.
But, here I am.
And I'm sorry about that goat comment.
