Baby Doll
Stevie Nicks
Outtake


My girlfriend saw my husband
They're coming across town to get me
He's been gone for five years or more
And he expects me to be waiting...

Oh Lord, help me buy a train ticket
Tell me what have I got to sell?
Oh, a pink satin dress...
And a silver tray
An abalone shell...

Runnin' out the back door
Trying to get away...
Almost past the river
He'll never catch me now
Oh, say it all
Say it all
So sad for you
Sad baby doll

Oh, well I watch you walk away
And I still hear you sayin'...
But the phone rings off the wall
I could ask you to come back
It wouldnt matter at all

I could scream out
That I am right
You could refuse my call
And I could cry in the middle of the night
Cry in the middle of the night
Cry in the middle of the night...
It wouldn't matter at all

Out the back door
Tryin' to get away
I'm almost to the river
You'll never catch me now
Oh he says, lay it all
Say it all
So sad for you, sad baby doll

Oh, and I watch you walk away
And I hear you say
But the phone rings off the wall
Oh, yeah
Wouldn't matter at all
I could call you up
Wouldn't matter at all
I could cry
Cry...
I could cry in the middle of the night
Oh, doesn't matter at all
It wouldn't matter at all

They say it doesn't matter at all
It doesn't matter at all
At all...
Cry in the middle of the night
I could ask you to come back...
Oh no,
That wouldn't be right
I could scream out that you are wrong
You refuse to fight me
I could cry in the middle of the night
Cry in the middle of the night
Cry in the middle of the night
Wouldn't matter at all...

Battle of the Dragon
Stevie Nicks
Demo with Tom Petty

It was night... read my eyes
Without love... no cause
I decided to go to the other side of the world...
Oooh...

I see something... I see a handsome soldier
Tom: (You would)
I see myself remain when all of them are gone
And the reasons men are afraid of you
Tom: (Why)
And my painting...
Tom: (Why)
And my reasons I recall them without talking of them
No one knows then-- nothing-- of the battle of the dragon
Or the dark side of your fury...
You keep the fury deep inside...
Tom: (Who's gonna wear this crown)
No witnesses to it
Tom: (Who's gonna do it for you)
Your friends aren't
I'll tell you why

Oooh, you just pretend
Tom: (Who's gonna wear this crown)
You're beautiful, and you're sensitive
And oh so very young
We are adapting to your silence
I can live here without you
You reach out your hand
But I cannot live without your songs...
No...
You pretend you're me
And you tell your friends
Oh that you should need them more
So have you been writing
Tom: (What)
Oooh, you say it's harder now
TomL (I didn't say nothing... who's gonna do it to ya now)
Baby, you're everything
It don't matter now, I need to be held
You say... alone... that you're no good for me
Nothing is wrong
Tom: (Never say nothing)
Oooh... you can and you will be gone
No one can walk away
From this battle
Tom: (Baby...)
Still a storm...
Like a fury...
Ooooh... if I sit still I will be calm
Tom: (Who said this battle is over...)

Beautiful Ghost
Stevie Nicks
The Other Side of the Mirror outtake


Looking back...
Just once to you
Well, I was beyond in my belief
Well, I was angry
Tragic emotion
Tragic...
And the girl next door who made potion
She says I should try to forget
But as far as she could see
I was going down fast...

Beautiful ghost
They say well... you can walk on water
Even if you want to
Even if you believe it
This is the mystic
Well, I just can't seem to get back to the crystal

And the funny thing was that
That girl was wrong
She was seldom wrong, they said
Her visions to the very last moment,
They almost always came true
You did not have to trust her...
She never trusted you...
She never trusted you

So I should try to forget
But as far as the sun could see
I was going down fast...

Like a beautiful ghost
Well, they say that you can walk on water
If and when you believe it
If and when you want it
This is the mystic
This is the crystal
Well, I just can't seem to get back to the crystal

So she stays there silently
Praying...
I have waited for you all my life
And now I am doubting...
And the time is running out
She says, still frozen to the ground

Beautiful ghost
They say that you can walk on water
If and when you believe it
If and when you believe it
This is the crystal
This is the mystic
Well, I just can't seem to get back to the crystal

Like a beautiful ghost
Like a beautiful ghost
They say that you can walk on water
If and when you believe it
Ooh, this is the crystal
Could you believe it?
Then this is the mystic
She says I just can't seem to get back...
To the crystal...
To the crystal...
I just can't seem to get back...
To the crystal...

Bella Donna
Stevie Nicks
Early demo


You can ride high atop your pony
I know you won't fall
'Cause the whole thing is phony...

You can fly
High up on your trapeze
Scaring all the people...
But you never scare me...

Bella Donna... The die has been cast...

No speed limit
Here it's the fast way...
It's just the way that it is here...
And the tide don't change it...

Come in... come in...

You are in love with... And I'm ready to sail
It's just a feeling...
And we fight for the northern star...

How it captures your soul...
And the lady's feelings
Captures your soul...
Bella Donna...

Once in a while, those eyes...
And your pale face becomes thin
And you say...
"I never thought it could"

Come in out of the darkness...

At last, at last, at last...
Ooh, Bella Donna...
Die has been cast
Bella Donna...

Don't change
Please don't change... yeah
Say that you never thought it...
That it could be harder

Come in out of the darkness
Bella Donna... my soul...

(Come in...)
Nothing was fair...
Nothing was fair... Bella Donna...
(Come in...)
Nothing was fair... Bella Donna...
Nothing was fair...
Bella Donna...

Bella Donna
Stevie Nicks
Demo, 1981


You can ride high atop your pony
I know you won't fall
Cause the whole thing's phony
You can fly swinging from your trapeze
Scaring all the people, but you'll never scare me
Bella Donna
And we fight for the northern star

No speed limit
This is the fast lane
It's just the way that it is here
And you say
"I never thought it could"
Bella Donna
We fight for the northern star
And the lady's feeling like the moon that she loved
Don't you know that the stars are a part of us
And the lady's feeling like the moon that she loved
And you said "I never thought it could"
Come in out of the darkness

You are in love with
And I'm ready to sail
It's just a feeling
Sort of captures your soul
Bella Donna

And the woman may be awestruck
And the woman may truly care
But the woman is so tired
So the woman disappeared
Come in out of the darkness
Bella Donna...my soul

Don't change
Please don't change
You say to me
That your face becomes thin
You never thought it would
Come in out of the darkness
Bella Donna
My soul

You are in love with
And I'm ready to sail
It's just a feeling

Black Maria
Todd Rundgren
Stevie Nicks on background vocals
Back to the Bars (1978)


Black Maria, you scare me so
I feel as though my heart stop dead
You're a liar, this I know
I watch you go around my head

Oh, I'm going down slow
You scare me so
Oh, you never let go
You scare me so

Gay deceiver, my eyes they burned
My insides turned, my brain it rolled
Unbeliever, but now I've learned
I took my turn, I come up cold...

Black Velvet
by Alannah Myles
Performed by Stevie Nicks at The Spirit of Life Award dinner
(City of Hope benefit)
November 4, 1998


Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers on the Victrola up high
Mama's dancin' with baby on her shoulder
The sun is settin' like molasses in the sky

The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for...

Black velvet and that little boy's smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring ya to your knees...
Black velvet if you please

Up in Memphis, the music's like a heatwave
White lightening, bound to drive you wild
Mama's baby's in the heart of every school girl
"Love Me Tender" leaves 'em cryin' in the aisle
The way he moved, it was a sin, so sweet and true
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for...

Black velvet and that little boy's smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Every word of every song that he sang was for you
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon...
What could you do?

Black velvet and that little boy's smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Black velvet and that little boy's smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

If you please...

Blowin' in the Wind
Performed by Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks, and Tom Petty
Sydney, Australia 2-11-86

How many roads most a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind

Yes, how many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea
Yes, how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free
Yes, how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn't see?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind

Yes, how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind

Blue Lamp
Stevie Nicks
Bella Donna demo; parts 1 and 2


Part 1:

Stevie: Could you put 'em there? No? It's too bad these aren't...
You know what we're going to need? We're gonna need tape to tape these lyrics closer to me. That's to...ya know?
Stevie: (in strange voice) I was not ready. I was too proud. I looked everywhere.
Female Voice: (laughing) everywhere
Stevie: I looked everywhere. By the sand...that sand of dance...no footprints...no footprints.
Female Voice: (laughing) No footprints
Stevie: Look...look here (coughs)
Female Voice: (sigh) Are they okay? Louder.
Female Voice: Oh no
Stevie: I need some tobacco. Oh, ever since I choked when I was in...kindergarten...
I'd become so (?) when I'd choke, you wouldn't believe it.
Female Voice: Oh no
Female Voice: Yeah
Stevie: I'd just go...
Female Voice: (?) I couldn't believe it.
Stevie: Cause I was so afraid of it.
Female Voice #2: Oh I hate it.
Female Voice #1: Me too
Female Voice #2: I had that happen twice.
Stevie: (cough) Well, I was laying on the bottom of a swimming pool...at age four.
Female Voice #2: Here it goes (?)
Stevie: Everybody else is probably walking around knowing that I was dying on the bottom. I said "better get out".
Female Voice #1: And she can stay down there a long time.
Male Voice: Let's see what this is.
Stevie: (clears throat) I may not be able to sing for a minute. I think I sniffed that peace thing all the way up to my nose.
Male Voice: That peace thing?
Male Voice #2: Try and do it in two. To do...
Stevie: We need a little more rock 'n roll weirdo, you know...you....little...uh...echo...for a piece of...shit...junk....you know. Remember me, guys? Shit (pronounced 'sheet')
Female Voice #1: (laughing)
Stevie: Since Tom isn't here, we have no choice but to...do this, and then he'll have to add...unless he...yeah. I've been stood up.

There was no message
To be found anywhere in sight
Inside or out
I had looked everywhere
But the only light
Left on in the house
Was a blue...light
Ooh...
A blue...light

Stevie: Well, it's a little percussive.

I was not ready
No enchantress
I was too proud
With or without that Christmas Angel
If you were wiser you would get out

Stevie: I don't like that drum, Chris. I mean, make it play... (cough)...make it sound like Mick. (cough) That's what I'm used to, you know...doo do...just dumb...like a you..uangi (sp?). I was so funny last night. We did a session. I said... Steady, the organ player was there...
Female Voice #2: uh huh
Stevie: And we were talking about...umm..Mick, and talking about him playing drums, and I was telling him about the loop..the loop on...on uh...on Dreams.
Female Voice #2: Yeah
Stevie: And I said "Petty(?), Mick would've hung himself in the back of a parking lot down the street, if he couldn't (?). Nobody's going to sing on ...this thing that doesn't sound like on the Police(?)." I said... He thinks he's one of God's perfect...men.
Female Voice #2: (laughter)
Stevie: Ya know? He's eager...he cannot...so he spends years doing..(cuts out)

Stevie: Give her...Jane Fonda exercises. Give her
Female Voice #1: (laughing) Kelly(?)..right?
Stevie: Build her...a studio at the...umm...at the bottom of the street, that she has never been to, that doesn't have a piano, and does not work, that costs a thousand million dollars. Then try to figure out why...
Female Voice #1: (laughing) why
Stevie: Oh. Jingle bells. Bells is...
Male Voice: Do you want (?)
Stevie: No. Bells is perfect. If you get back a funky drum track, Chris, we can't put little barrels in it.
Female Voice #1: You mean bells?
Stevie: This guy's going to need it soon.
Female Voice #1: (laughter)
Stevie: I mean, he's ready to create, this kid. He's ready to create.
Female Voice #1: (laughter)
Female Voice #1: (cough)
Stevie: You guys in there listen too, and tell me...what you think about the speed. You haven't heard much of this. It is like a weird old...stop. It keeps...I can't...I should be...a little faster, cause we can always slow it down, but I need to start it faster like I've been playing it.

Stevie: I fogot my Wagner(?)
Stevie: Well...now...I mean...is that...now
Stevie: I need to hear more echoey stuff on the piano, you guys...I mean, just snow and any...make it sound as...you know...just as *weird* as possible, because that's what...ya know...because it's like such an old...you know...like an old Dickens character walking around going "could you give me a dime?"...or more...(laughs)
Stevie: Okay...it goes

There was no message to be found
Anywhere around
Inside or out
I had looked everywhere
But the only light
Left on in the house
Was a blue...light
Ooh...
Blue light...
Ooh ooh

I was not ready
No enchantress
I was too proud
With or without some...
And...
With or without some Christmas angel
You would be wiser if you would get out
Yeah, yeah
Ooh ooh

Downstairs
The big ol' house...ooh...is mine...
Outside
The stars still laugh and...shine...
Ooh yeah

Don't listen to her
Listen...through her

Stevie: Oh. I know what I'm doing, but I stopped because I was...before I went all the way, I just...I wanted to be sure that you were...I need to hear more of me, and more of the drum.
Stevie: So...I...I need to hear more of the...you know... percussion...and so it makes it easier for me to play...like this...you...you...silent...uh...phantom thing Mick would be playing...if he were buried.
Stevie: What do you think about phantoms(?). Yes.
Stevie: If it's...If it's strong...you know...if I can hear that really strong, then that's what counts.
Stevie: You play percussion? You could just hit something, maybe...that would help, ya know? Ya think we could do that, maybe, like with a marker(?) or something, or...well, we'd have to go ask (?), wouldn't we?
Stevie: Do we have any kind of a, like a real mellow percussion... thing... that Sara could just play on the beat, but would really not?
Stevie: What?
Sara: How 'bout that?
Stevie: Oh. I see what you mean.
Sara: (laughing)

There was no message to be found anywhere in sight
Inside or out
I had looked everywhere
But the only light
Left on in the house
Was a blue light...
Yeah yeah

I was not ready
No enchatress
I was too proud
With or without your Christmas angel
If you were wiser, you would get out
Ooh ooh
A la la la la

To be her teacher
Just try to reach her
Give her her freedom...if that's what she wants
Try to look everywhere
Try to look everywhere
For the sound that guides her
Guardian...angel
Guardian...angel

Outside
The big ol' house...is mine...
Ooh

Stevie: Oh! You know what? It's like running a really swift...arrr...
Female Voice #2: v-voom
Female Voice #1: shoo

Outside
The big ol' house...is mine...
Downstairs
The stars still laugh...and cry

Stevie: For all the work it is, I think I should do this and listen to it. It gives me a feel for it.
Female Voice #2: Right
Female Voice: (inaudible)
Stevie: You done really wonderful.

Part 2:

Voice: Other way
Stevie: I have to turn it.
Voices: (inaudible)
Stevie: Just knocked my face in the face(?) with...my glasses that don't work.

There was no message to be found anywhere in sight
Inside or out
I had looked everywhere
But the only light
Left on in the house
Was a blue light
Blue light...
Blue...light

I was not ready
No enchantress
I was too proud
Ooh ooh hmmm
If you look through her and look behind her
If you were wiser, you would get out
Ooh...yeah
Yeah yeah
Ooh...

To be her teacher
Just try to reach her
Give her her freedom, if that's what she wants

For the light that shines
A Guardian...angel
Guardian...

Don't listen to her
Listen...through her
Ooh
Christmas angel in you...shines through her

Downstairs
The big ol' house...is mine
Outside
The big ol'...stars still...shine...

Stevie: I'm just...you know...I didn't...I know I made terrible mistakes.
I was just trying to figure out if that was...if it was having any...

Stevie: Little golden-headed one in there, I can't tell what you're saying.
Stevie: Kim, what do you think? Do you think the tempo's right...or wrong?
Stevie: I need more of that drum. I need more percussion. Not yet. Do you have bills or anything to put on it?

There was no message to be found anywhere in sight
Inside or out
I had looked everywhere
But the only light
Left on in the house
Was a blue light
Yeah yeah
Blue...light

I was not ready
No enchantress
I was too proud
With or without her
Look far behind her
If you were wiser, you would get out...
Say...
Without...
Some Christmas angel
To...be...a teacher
Just try...to reach her

Ooh ooh
Listen through her
Oh
Listen to her
Yeah yeah

Don't listen to her
Listen through her
Some Christmas angel
If that's what she wants
Try to look everywhere for the sound that guides her guardian...angel
Guardian...angel...

Downstairs
The big ol' house....ooh...is mine...
Outside the stars...still laugh...and shine...
Laugh and shine
Through the big ol' house is mine
If you were wiser, you would get out...
Wiser, you would get out
Wiser, you would get out...out

So the only light that shines through the night
Is the one that I carried from my mother's home
And the light that burns through the...window pane
And the love remains...

And the candle burnt...
Yeah yeah
Some Christmas angel
If you were wiser, you would get out
Ooh...
A guardian...angel..of your challenge...
Ooh ooh
And the guardian of your challenge...

Downstairs
The big ol' house...big ol' house is mine...
And, you know that you know...
Still, sometimes...
All those stars I love...still laugh and cry...
Ooh..
The big ol' house is mine

 

#4

Stevie: I was, you know...getting carried away, but...

There was no message to be found anwhere in sight
It wasn't right
I had looked everywhere
But the only lamp...left on in the house
Was a blue light
Ooh ooh ooh
Blue light...

I was not ready
No enchantress
I was too proud
With or without her
Look far behind her
If you were wiser, you would get out
Ooh ooh
Some Christmas angel
If you were wiser, you would get out

To be a teacher, just try to reach her
Give her her freedom
If that's what she wants

Don't listen to her
Just listen through her
Some Christmas angel
Just behind her...guardian
Ooh...
Guardian...angel

Don't listen to her
Listen...through her
Try to look everywhere
Look behind her for her...guardian
If you were wiser, you would get out

So the only light that shines through the night
Is the lamp that I carried from my mother's home
And the light that burns through the window pane
And the love remains
Then the candle-glow

Downstairs
The big ol' house...is mine
Outside
The stars still laugh
Still laugh and shine
Oooh...ooh ooh
Ooh...

Well, the big ol' house is mine
Well, the big ol' house is mine
Ooh ooh
The big ol' house is mine
Outside...
And, though they say that the stars still laugh
And that the stars still laugh
If you were wiser, you would get out...
Get out...

Stevie: You think this is fast enough, or slow enough, for the right tempo?

There was no message to be found anywhere in sight
Inside or out
I had looked everywhere
And the only thing
Left on in the house
Was a blue...light
A blue...light

I was not ready
No enchantress
I was too proud
With or without it
Some Christmas angel
If you were wiser, you would get out...
Ooh...

No...
Don't listen...to her
Listen through her
Go...far... behind her for the sound

To be a teacher
Try to reach her
Give her her freedom
If that's what she wants
Look far behind her for the sound
That guards her guardian
Guardian...of the challenger...
Guardian...

The guardian of...the challenge...does not... cry
Ooh...look behind her
And the sound of her guardian...angel
You would be wiser if you would get out

And the only light that shines through the night
Is the..light that I carried from my...mother's home
And the light that burns throught the..window pane
And the love remains...
And the candle (?)

Downstairs
The big ol'...house is mine...
Outside
The stars still laugh
Ooh...why
If you were wiser, you would get out
Christmas angel

The only light that shines through the night is the...
If you were wiser, you would get out...

Stevie: (in weird voice) But he never brought me one little tiny thing to drink, and I am parched.
Stevie: Eh...yeah
Stevie: With a little tiny bit of vodka in it? I had one and it was gone. I didn't drink it. I'm not an alcoholic that hides her drinks and then goes back to find 'em.

(music)

Stevie: I don't know yet.
Male Voice: What's going on?
Stevie: What's up?
Male Voice: (inaudible)
Stevie: Now watch. (plays notes on piano)
Stevie: What I mean is, can you to do this?
Male Voice: Yeah
Stevie: Right when you're doing that, you do the note. (?) Anyway..okay, you wanna try it? I mean...it's just a...simple...stupid idea
Male Voice: How 'bout (?) playing it first, for a second?
Stevie: Alright

To be her teacher
Try to reach her
Give her her freedom...if that's what she wants
Try the sound that guides her
Watch
Oh the sound that guides her guardian

Stevie: Alright, alright. Let me do it. Let me do it again.

To be her teacher
Try to reach her
Give her her freedom
If that's what she wants
Try to look everywhere
For the sound that guides her guar...
Sound that guides her guardian
Look everywhere
For the sound that guides her guardian...angel
Guardian... (cuts out)

Ooh...ay...
Ohh...

There was no message to be found anywhere inside
Inside or out
I had looked everywhere

Upstairs
Where the stars still laugh, and they shine...

Blue Water

Early demo


Blue water...
Sit and I wait
For the morning to come,
Blue water...
And I wait for the sound
Of my gypsy...
Blue water
I sit out each night,
Hidden out of sight
Blue water...
Blue water
And I stare at the sea...
And the sea smiles for me
And the sea is as blue, baby...
As your lover

I can't give up a night
I'm in high tide...
I'd like to sail the sea
I'd like to take you on a slow ride...
I won't give up a night
High tide...
I like to stare at the sea...
I'd like to take you on a...
Slow ride...
Slow ride...
Slow ride

Blue water
I sit and I wait...
For the morning to come,
Blue water...
And I wait for the sound...
Blue water
I sit out each night,
Hidden out of sight...
Blue water
And I wait for the sound
Wait for the sound...
And I smile at the sea
And the sea smiles for me
And the sea is as blue, baby...
As your lover

I can't give up a night
I'm in high tide
Well, I like to stare at the sea
I'd like to take you on a...
Slow ride...
Slow ride

I won't give up a night
I'm in high tide
I'd like to be your friend
I'd like to love you till the end
Till the end...

Bombay Sapphires
Stevie Nicks
Demo version


You, beloved... were to me
Everything that love stood for
To love one another for awhile was enough,
It was all that I lived for
How can I go on without you?
Oh, how can I go on without you?
I tell myself this time I'm going to have to move on

'Cause she says, the sea never changes, not really...
It is the constant in my life
I always return here to the flash of those colors
Through every window, the wind through the night
Here I am dramatic...
Oh, here I am not waiting
Here I am not listening
For the call of the wild

It is green... it is aquamarine
It is colors I have never seen
I can see past you to the white sand

It is blue... it is not about you
It is all true...
You know who I am

The sea never changes, not really...
It is the constant in my life
I always return here for the flash of those colors
Through every window, the wind through the night
Well, here I am dramatic...
Here I am not listening
Here I am not waiting
For the call of the wild

That's my dream... so it seems
Dreams... then there are none...

Bombay Sapphire...
Hey, I can take you higher...
Whatever you desire... I can mend your heart

It's like purple haze
It's there every day...
It's passion never fades...
You know what I mean

It's like Bombay Sapphires...
Hey, I can take you higher...
Whatever you desire... I can mend your heart
I can mend your heart
I can mend your heart
I can mend your heart
