Landslide

One of my favorite songs, written by Stevie Nicks.

It’s hard to explain what it means, because it changes depending on where I am in life. But you could say it’s one of my life’s classic sad songs. Right now, I can’t help feeling it. No matter what you do, life comes tumbling down on you, the things you love, and things you put your heart into. For I while it feels like I’ve been tied to a sinking ship that’s been half-submerged in the water for too long. Can the ship just sink, or get really fixed? Just not in between anymore, not stuck in this place where I’m pouring my life into things that get fucked up, or taken for granted, or both at the same time.

 

I took my love and I took it down 
Climbed a mountain then I turned around 
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills 
Well the landslide brought me down 

Oh, mirror in the sky 
What is love? 
Can the child within my heart rise above 
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides 
Can I handle the seasons of my life 

Well, I’ve been afraid of changin’ 
‘Cause I built my life around you 
But time makes you bolder 
Children get older 
I’m getting older too 

Well … 

Well, I’ve been afraid of changin’ 
‘Cause I built my life around you 
But time makes you bolder 
Children get older 
I’m getting older too 

Well, I’m getting older too 

So, take this love and take it down 
Yeah, and if you climb a mountain and ya turn around 
And If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills 
Well the landslide brought me down 

If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills 

Well maybe … 
Well maybe … 
Well maybe … 

The landslide will bring you down.
