Fall From Grace
Stevie Nicks
demo version


I choose to be his confidant and to keep you from the fire
I choose to be quietly discreet, if that is your desire
I touch with gossamer wings to be quiet around you
There is so much going on, it could easily be blinding...
All-consuming... spellbinding... confusing

You say you couldn't do this for very long
The applause from it all is so defining
Well, it bounces off the wall at you
When the miracle is happening
High priestess, she's the keeper of the peace in this
Twice as much... intensified
What people will do...
To get this high

She loves his music sometimes
She makes him cry... intensify
But people will do to get this high

Maybe I am calmer now, maybe things are fine
Maybe I made the whole thing up, maybe it isn't a lie
Maybe the reason I say these things is to bring you back alive
Maybe I fought this long and this hard just to make sure you survive

Wake up with a stranger, it's not something that you plan
One night in a world of pain and you finally understand
Not all the king's horses, not all the king's men
Could put it back together

Maybe I sleep in a bed of roses, maybe they were always there
Maybe I didn't see them then, the answers to my prayers
Falling down in a crystal ball into crystal stairs
I'm doing the same things over and over, going in for repairs

Wake up with a stranger, it's not something that you plan
One night in a world of pain and you finally understand
Not all the king's horses, not all the king's men
Could put it back together

And now alone in my room as it all begins again
Was I so wrong, why am I always so intense?
In this same place I sit, the same place as before
Well, I came all the way here just to watch you walk out that door

Wake up with a stranger, it's not something that you plan
One night in a world of pain and you finally understand
Not all the king's horses, not all the king's men
Could put it back together

I didn't ask when you shook your head
I always accepted what you said as the truth
And the truth only
Well, it's not enough that you depend on me
And it's not enough that you say you love me
It's not enough to just save face
Because sometimes...
You just fall from grace
You just fall from grace

Feel So Good
Walter Egan
Stevie Nicks on background vocals
Fundamental Roll (1977)


So long...
I've been waiting so long
Just for someone like you
To happen along
And I know
Ooh, that I've been before
When I think of your smile
And I hear your song

For you make me feel so good
(Make me feel so good)
Make me feel better than I thought I could
I hope that it's understood
I love you so much,
'Cause you make me feel so good

Someday...
Ooh, I dreamed that someday
All the trouble and steam
Will be out of our way
I know...
Our time together's been short
Just believe what I say...
You remain in my heart...
There you stay

You make me feel so good
(Make me feel so good)
Make me feel better than I thought I could
I hope that it's understood
I love you so much,
'Cause you make me feel so good

You make me feel so good
(Make me feel so good)
Make me feel better than I thought I could
I hope that it's understood
I love you so much,
'Cause you make me feel so good

Finally Find a Girlfriend
Walter Egan
Stevie Nicks on background vocals
Not Shy (1978)


I remember how it was before I met my baby,
I was sometimes lonely and sometimes crazy
I had a lot of girls to help me pass the time
But when she arrived I left it all behind

It's fine
It's fine
And she loves me so much I'm with her all of the time

It's fine I found a girl
Finally found a girl
Finally find a girlfriend, yeah yeah

And she made me understand what love can really mean
And now my nights are spent with more than dreams
I'm here to tell you now she loves me to the letter
And I must admit that I never felt better

It's fine
Yeah, it's fine
And she loves me so much I'm with her all of the time
It's fine I found a girl
Finally found a girl
Finally find a girlfriend
(Girlfriend) Ooh, yeah

Ooh ooh ooh...
Ooh ooh ooh...

It's fine
Yeah it's fine
And she loves me so much I'm with her all of the time

It's fine I found a girl
Finally found a girl
Finally find a girlfriend
(Girlfriend)
Yeah it's fine I found a girl
Finally found a girl
Finally find a girlfriend

Yeah...
It's fine I found a girl (hey)
Finally found a girl
Finally find a girlfriend (yeah)

Ooh ooh ooh...
Ooh ooh ooh...

Fireflies
Stevie Nicks
Demo with Fleetwood Mac


To be last to leave...
Last to be gone...
Stolen from the one
Who hung onto it...
To be the last in the line
Those that live on...
Silhouette of a dream
Treasured by the ones
Who hung on...

Almost a breakdown...
Of our love affair
The stiletto cuts quick...
Like a whip through the air
Long distance winners...
Well, we survive the fight
Not one of us runs
From the firelight

So I would love to believe
Did I believe what you say?
With the drama of the moment
For us there is no easy way
Oooh, not one of us leaves
No, everyone stays
By the fire fades...

The last to be gone...
Oh, that I believe what you say
In the drama of the moment,
There is no easy way
Not one of us runs
Everyone stays close
'Til the fire fades...

To be last to be gone...

What caused the fearsome
Divorce in the night
No competition...
To survive, do it right
Well, you believe in the five
To survive the distance
Everyone fights...
Everyone fights...
For the firelight
Oooh...

At the risk of my feelings
Dreamers in the night
Some call it my nightmare
My five fireflies
Well, like a sailing ship
Not one of us runs
Everyone stays...
And the fire never fades
Of our love affair...
I would love to believe...
I believe what you say
Not today...

Fireflies
Stevie Nicks
Bella Donna demo;  short piano snippet

Stevie: Should I come in, or not, or what?

Oh...oh oh
There was no competition
To survive...survive
To survive, do it right
You believe in the fire
To survive the distance
Everyone fights
Everyone fights
For the firelight...
Like a sailing ship
Some call it my nightmare
mmm mmm

Stevie: I'm just...uh...doing nothing in here, except for I...I've got w-water...

Forest of the Black Roses
Stevie Nicks
Demo, 1975


As she walked into the forest of the black roses...
Stood for everything she had ever loved
And each fold in her long black dress...
Was just as soft as the petals of a rose...

If this is to be my punishment...
I would live it out...as in a dream...
And go each day to the forest of the black roses...
And stand each night as tall as a tree...
Stand each day as tall as a tree

And the days...they go by...
Doing nothing about them...
How much time...
Will I have to spend?

And she goes each day to the forest of the black roses
Stands for everything she had ever loved
And she asked herself..."Well, just how much
Must I give away?"

Anything...I love him that much
Anything...I love him that much
Anything...I love him that much...

Freestyle
By Les Dudek and Stevie Nicks
Recorded by Les Dudek; Freestyle (2002)

She’s not tellin’, she’s not tellin’
She’s not tellin’, she’s not tellin’
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh
She’s not tellin’
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh

I haven’t seen you in a long time
It’s been too long
And if she knows she’s not tellin’
It’s been too long
But that’s not a one thing to her
‘Cause only a fool knows

Freestyle run away leavin’ tonight
With an empty heart on an all night flight
Freestyle
Long distant stranger time replaced
With freestyle love on a brand new face
Freestyle

Well it’s still not known to her heart
She’s very alone tonight
She’s up in arms for open hearts
She’s very alone
Only a fool would lie
‘Cause only a fool knows

Freestyle run away leavin’ tonight
With an empty heart on an all night flight
Freestyle
Long distant stranger time replaced
With freestyle love on a brand new face
Freestyle

Freestyle, Freestyle

Would you do it once for her right now
She’s very alone tonight
Well you just might have won the race
But you won’t be alone tonight
Still your heart cries out
And you fall face down
But you don’t learn - You don’t learn
That it’s crazy here right now
But you don’t learn – You don’t learn
Freestyle
You don’t learn – You don’t learn
Freestyle
You don’t learn – You don’t learn
Freestyle, Freestyle
Freestyle, Freestyle

Frozen Love
Stevi Nicks & Lindsey Buckingham
Buckingham Nicks 1973


You may not be as strong as me
And I may not care to teach you
It may be hard to keep up with me
But I'll always be able to reach you

And if you go forward, I'll meet you there
And if you climb up through the cold freezing air
Look down below you; search out above
And cry out to life for a frozen love

Life gave me you; the change was made
And there's no beginning over
You are not happy, but what is love?
Hate gave you me for a lover...

And if you go forward, I'll meet you there
And if you climb up through the cold freezing air
Look down below you; search out above
And cry out to life for a frozen love
