Music Monday: Dreams, Fleetwood Mac

Music Monday, Seventies
Fleetwood Mac band from the 1970s

This week’s Music Monday is all about “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac. Memphis idolizes Stevie Nicks and challenges her abusive husband early on in the story to sing this very song. I’m a huge fan of this legendary band and especially Stevie Nicks herself. This song is one of their mainstream hit songs and one of my personal favorites.

Lyrics

Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well, who am I to keep you down
It’s only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
But listen carefully
To the sound of your lonelinessLike a heartbeat drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost
And what you had
And what you lostThunder only happens when it’s rainin’
Players only love you when they’re playin’
Say women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know
You’ll knowNow here I go again
I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself
It’s only me who wants to wrap around your dreams
And have you any dreams you’d like to sell?
Dreams of lonelinessLike a heartbeat drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost
And what you had
Ooh, what you lostThunder only happens when it’s rainin’
Players only love you when they’re playin’
Women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know
Oh, thunder only happens when it’s rainin’
Players only love you when they’re playin’
Say women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know
You’ll know
You will know
Oh, you’ll know
