I Call You Missing
(Also known as "She Calls You Missing," etc.)
Stevie Nicks
Outtake, 1993


You used to call her wicked
She used to call you friend
They say her life is wild
Compared to what...lifestyle

Some call it love...
Some are above that
She burns a candle for him every night
She says it's worth it...

And the angel said...
"Well, you must have had a dream...
And you remembered it..."
And the dream followed through
Til the end of the dream...
And the dream came true...
When I want something
Well, I get it...

Who understands...
Well, that's not fair...
Well, what do you mean?
That's the way it is
"Sorry...sorry..." he said...
No one ever said...
In the heart...this would be fair

So her life begins again
Outlaws are gone...
I return to the very same place...
It's just the same way that I was...

Well, you can't say no
In the middle of the night
You can't stay home
And give up the fight
Well, I care about it...Saturday night
She calls you missing
Again and again
She calls you missing...missing...missing
Again and again
She calls you missing...missing...missing
Again and again
She calls you missing...missing...missing
Again and again
She calls you missing...missing...missing
Again and again
No one ever said this would be fair...

Then there are the frightening laughings...
The demons are more frightening...
Than the razor's edge
And the angel said...
"Well...well, you must have had a dream..."
Her heart is broken...

Who understands...
Well, that's not fair (that's not fair)
What do you mean?
That's the way it is (the way it is)
"Sorry...sorry..." he said
No one ever said this would be fair...
Well, no one said this would be fair...

So the angel said...
"Well, you must have had a dream, baby...
And you remembered it..."
(When I want something, I get it)
And the dream followed through...
Oh, at the end of the deram...
The dream came true
When I want something, I get it
Ooh, who understands that's not fair...
When I want something, I get it
And the angel said..."Well, you must have had a dream..."
When I want something, I get it...
And you remember it...
Til the dream followed through...
At the end of the dream...
The dream came true

I Need to Know
Tom Petty
Covered by Stevie Nicks live in concert

Talk on the town says I might go solo
A good friend of mine saw you leavin by your back door...

I need to know...
I need to know...
Well, if you say you're gonna leave
Then you better say so
I need to know...
I need to know...
Because I don't know how long...
Well, I can hold on
If you're making me wait...
And you're leading me on...
Ooh, I need to know
I need to know...

Who would've thought that I'd fall for his lies...
All of a sudden, it's me on the outside

I need to know...
I need to know...
Well, if you say you're gonna leave
Then you better say so
I need to know...
I need to know...
Because I don't know how long...
Well, I can hold on
If you're making me wait...
And you're leading me on...
Ooh, I need to know
I need to know...
Take your violet and blue mornings with you!

I Need You
Stevie Nicks
Possibly a Fritz demo


You came...
You came along
At a bad time...
I was too young

Three men
Each of which wants all of me
Each gets only a part of me
I live alone

Small part can't satisfy
It will only pacify
Here...here lies intensity
Here breathe the highs and lows
Here we climb that mountain
Plunging deep into deepness
Floating back and forth...
Wanting to touch down...but never touching
For to touch is to reveal...the answer
The answer...oh...

Well, I need you
Because you are not mine
I am impatient
'Cause you are so impulsive
Oh yes...
I don't understand you
But I am afraid of you
Oh, I am afraid...

I Pretend
Sandy Stewart; duet with Stevie Nicks
Cat Dancer, 1984


Someone's son, someone's man
Someone's inspiration, someone's friend
I depend on sleep to take me to you once again
And if I don't wake up to see
You standing here in front of me...
A dream won't die, a love won't end
'Cause you're forever mine
When I pretend

The faithful listen to your every word
I've followed for years and I've seen and heard,
Learned and laughed...
Idle nights with melodies and photographs
But if realize someday
You're unaware, too far away
A dream won't die, a love won't end
'Cause you're forever mine
When I pretend

And when you're old with time's demands
You can be my teacher, I'll be your hands,
Play the part,
Stop for nothing but to have you hold me,
Precious heart...
If I accept what cannot be,
No longer count on destiny
A dream won't die, a love won't end
'Cause you're forever mine
When I pretend
You're forever mine...

I Wanna Talk to You
(Gypsy Beggars, Jazz Tune)
Stevie Nicks
Demo


He was my friend...
Long ago, before you...gypsy soul
And the beggar's dust...
What's wrong with him?
I wanna talk to you
Say he's coming here...

I wanna talk to you...
I wanna talk to you

Why this silk dress?
You'll never love him...
Have them then, your newfound friends
Stare through the window...
Your hands don't do this...
What about...
I wish he hadn't gone back,
Different as he is...

She convinces herself selfish...
Why did you stay so long in that house?
You gypsy beggar...
He was my friend
Before your gypsy soul...
And the beggar's dust...
What's wrong with him?

That challenge...
Keeps us together
It is a challenge for love to get older...
Time was...
As the sea...
As the sea...
Sea draws you closer...
The time had come and gone...

She convinces herself selfish
Why did you stay so long in that house?
Well, you're a gypsy beggar...
He was my friend long ago
Before you...
Somewhere in his gypsy soul...

I've Been Loving You Too Long
Written by Otis Redding
Covered by Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham
(These lyrics are of Stevie and Lindsey's version;
original version is longer with more lyrics)


I've been loving you a little too long
I don't want to stop it now
You've grown tired and you want to be free, yeah
My love is growing stronger, as you become a habit with me

I've been loving you a little too long
I dont wanna stop now
With you my life...
Was so wonderful

You've grown tired and you want to be free
My love is growing stronger, as you become a habit with me
I've been loving you a little too long
I dont wanna stop now
(I dont wanna stop now)

I've been loving you...
I dont wanna stop this now
Please don't let me stop now
I've been, I've been loving you
Just let me stop, don't wanna stop now
I've been so tired of you...
Please don't let me stop now
Don't want to stop it now
Don't want you to stop it now...

If You Ever Did Believe
Stevie Nicks
Demo, 1978 or 79
1998 Practical Magic soundtrack


Yeah...
You've left me now
And it's seasoned my soul...
And with every step you take
I watch another part of you go...
I continue to build the wall
You were so strong,
I fell to my knees...
And I don't think
I can handle this at all...

Whoa...
One more night,
I'd like to lie and hold you
Yes, and feel...
To make you sigh, I'd like to be there for you...
Have you forgotten me?

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

My mind wont rest,
And I don't sleep...
Not even in my dreams...
If you ever did believe, for my sake...
If you ever did believe...
And the days go by...
Doing nothing about them...
How much time...
Will I have to spend?

Whoa...
One more night,
I'd like to lie and hold you
Yes, and feel...
To make you sigh, I'd like to be there for you...
Have you forgotten me?

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

My mind won't rest,
And I don't sleep...
Not even in my dreams...
If you ever did believe, for my sake...
If you ever did believe...
And the days go by...
Doing nothing about them...
How much time...
Will I have to spend?

Oooh...
Baby, don't leave me...
I'm down on my knees...
Whoa, don't leave me...
Whoa, begging you to please me...
Yeah...
Don't leave me...
Hey...
Don't leave me...

If You Were My Love
Stevie Nicks
Street Angel outtake

Tonight there are no saviors...
Tonight outside my window
And the sun turns away...
As the moon rolls over the mountain
And you are lost in your dreaming
Where is the wild white rose?

My hands reach for numbers
For someone that could tell me...
It wasn't anyone's fault
With your crosses to bear
And your dreams that still live on
With your crosses to bear
And your dreams that still live on

You were my love
You were my love
However momentarily...
Now if I were the one
Who watched over your sleeping
You would never have been frightened...
At all
At all...

With our crosses to bear
And our dreams that still live on...
With our crosses to bear
And our dreams that still live on
Moment to moment
Moment to moment
If you were my love...
If you were my love

They say everyone...
Must remain...
Faithful...

If You Were My Love
Stevie Nicks
Master reel to reels
2-20-81

Male Voice: uh 1, 2, 3

Tonight there are no saviours
This night outside my window
Wasn't anyone's fault

When the moon rolls over the mountain
You are lost in dreaming
Where is the wild white rose
(where is the wild white rose)
I try to explain
Someone who was crying
If you were my love

My hands reach for something
Someone that could tell me
Wasn't anyone's fault
Wasn't anyone's fault

Crosses to bear
Our dreams that still burn
With our crosses to bear
And our dreams that still burn

You were my love
My love...
However momentarily
Oh...
If I were the one
Over your sleeping
You would never...
Have been frightened
At all...
At all...

With our crosses to bear
Then our dreams that still burn
With our crosses to bear
And our dreams that still burn

If you were my love
However momentarily
Ooh...
If I were the one
Watched over...your sleeping
You would never
Have been frightened
At all...
At all....
At all...
At all...
Faithful...

Impossible Task
Stevie Nicks
Outtake

When I look at you, I see me
Faceless, persuasive...
Whoa Lily, where have you gone?
Oh Lily, what have you done?
Beautiful as you are,
We aren't ageless
Oh yes, it's sad,
When you've never even known me

You would say that this is
An impossible task...
But I must go on searching
"So search until you die,"
Says the man I love...
"Search until you drop...
I love your independent soul
And I know how much she means to you...
I know..."

"I just have no more strength,"
She says..."I should come home now"
Bring your tears to me back...oh yes, Lily
And she says, "But that baby...
Oh where has she gone?
I promised her mother I would find her
And I have failed her..."

And Lily's voice...
I thought that I could never cry
No matter what the price...
I knew I'd found the prize
There you were...
In all his glory...he says,
"Go on, search...drop...die...
You'll never find her"
Oh, Lily...
Hour after hour
Contradictory to sensitivity
Well, I would see this thing through
I would find this baby
She was not my first one...
But he was my last one
Oh, I'll come back...when I can

Don't you need more...
Don't you need more of you and me?
And a lady walks up to him and says,
"I'm leaving again"
Separation once more...
Ooh, yes, it's not the saddest
Like you've never seen me
It's an impossible task
But I must go on searching...
"So search until you die,"
Says the man that I love...

Impossible Task
Stevie Nicks
Alternate outtake


When I look at you, I see me
Faceless, persuasive...
Evasive... hard to trace
When I look at you...
Oh Lily, where have you gone?
Oh Lily, what have you done?
Beautiful as we are,
We are not ageless
We are faceless,
And you never even knew it

You would say that this is just
An impossible task...
But I must go on searching
"So search as long as you can,"
Says the man that I love...
"I know how much you mean to her...
she loves your independent soul
So search until you can't search no more"

Yes, I should come back now
Bring my tears back to you
But I promised her...
And I have failed her
What to do... what to do?
I have failed her

And in his voice...
I felt no matter what the price,
He would stand behind me
He in all his glory...
I had found the prize
I was his first love...
And I would be his last

He knows I will return... when I can
(Contradictory... to sensitivity)
And she will say, "don't you need more"
(I must see this thing through... I must go on searching)
I release you from your promise...
(He was not my first one... but he'll be my last one)
Separation once more...
(I'll come back... when I can)


Contradictory... to sensitivity
Promises, we made so many of them
After all this time...
You must forget me
Forget about me

And you would say that this is just an impossible task
Oh, well he knows that... that is why he asks
You have done everything that you can
Go home now... you have to

Contradictory...
Oh, Lily...
To sensitivity...
Oh, Lily... where have you gone?

Sensitivity...
After all this time, you must forget about me
Separation once more...
Promises, so many of them...

Insider
Tom Petty; duet with Stevie Nicks
Hard Promises, 1981


You've got a dangerous background...
And everything you've dreamed of
Yeah, you're the dark angel...
It don't show when you break up
And I'm the one who oughta know...
Yeah, I'm the one left in the dust
Yeah, I'm the broken-hearted fool...
Who was never quite enough

I'm an insider...
I've been burned by the fire
And I've had to live
With some hard promises
I've crawled through the briars...
I'm an insider

It's a circle of deception
It's a hall of strangers
It's a cage without a key
You can feel the danger...

I'm an insider...
I've been burned by the fire
And I've had to live
With some hard promises
I've crawled through the briars...
I'm an insider

I'll bet you're his masterpiece
I'll bet you're his self-control
Yeah, you'll become his legacy...
His quiet world of white and gold

And I'm the one who oughta know...
I'm the one you left to rust
Not one of your twisted friends...
I'm the one you couldn't love

I'm an insider...
I've been burned by the fire
And I've had to live
With some hard promises
I've crawled through the briars...
I'm an insider

Inspiration
Ethan Jones
B-side to single Maybe Love Will Change Your Mind (U.S. 1994);
B-side to import CD Blue Denim (1994); Japanese Street Angel


Well I was sitting down talking to myself again
I pick up the phone you're on the other end
Sometimes to talk to you is all I need
To make me feel at home again
We can talk away the time like it was yesterday
You make me feel like I feel when I sit down and play

And I understand it's not how we planned...
But we'll make it
Just call me inspiration
I remember your voice at the station
You whispered to me at the station...
Just call me inspiration

And when you put down the phone I feel so alone
Sometimes I just can't stand it
But it's all worthwhile when I see that smile
I feel like I'm up a mile high

And I understand it's not how we planned...
But we'll make it
Just call me inspiration
I remember your voice at the station
You whispered to me at the station...
Just call me inspiration

Well, these past few weeks I've had time to remember
Those times we spent together
The days we just decided to stay inside
To be with one another
And those times they mean so much to me
And you have to know how much you mean to me
And I really really want you to be with me...
Cause I love you

Just call me inspiration
I remember your voice at the station
You whispered to me at the station...
Just call me inspiration

Just call me inspiration...
Just call me inspiration

Intuition
Rick Vito
Stevie Nicks on background vocals
King of Hearts (1992)

I can hold you in my arms
If I'm a thousand miles away
And I can know what's on your mind
Without you having a word to say
Oh, don't turn back now
Oh, don't try and figure how
It's stronger now than me or you
Clearer than we ever knew

Intuition, I trust that it's right
Intuition, has me loving you tonight
Intuition, says that it's true
Intuition, I know you're feeling it too
(There) ain't no need for suspicion (ain't no act of contrition)
I trust this intuition...

It might be hard to understand
Not an easy thing to say
I never felt like this before
Or loved in such a powerful way
Oh, there's no turning aside
Oh no, no reason to hide
Everything will be all right
If we only hold on tight

Intuition, I trust that it's right
Intuition, has me loving you tonight
Intuition, says that it's true
Intuition, I know you're feeling it too
(There) ain't no need for suspicion (ain't no act of contrition)
I trust this intuition...

It Takes Two
Written by Mickey Stevenson and Sylvia Moy
Performed by Stevie Nicks and Don Henley at The Spirit of Life Award dinner
(City of Hope benefit)
November 4, 1998


One can have a dream, baby
Two can make that dream so real
One can talk about bein' in love
Two can say how it really feels
One can wish upon a star
Two can make that wish come true, yeah
One can stand alone in the dark
Two can make the light shine through

It takes two, baby, it takes two, baby
Me and you, just takes two
It takes two, baby, it takes two, baby
To make a dream come true, just takes two

One can have a broken heart, livin' in misery
Two can really ease the pain, like a perfect remedy
One can be alone in a car, on night like these all alone
Two can make 'most any place seem just like bein' at home

It takes two, baby, it takes two, baby
Me and you, just takes two
It takes two, baby, it takes two, baby
To make a dream come true, just takes two
Just takes two, just takes two

One can go out to a movie, lookin' for a special treat
Two can make that single movie somethin' really kinda sweet
Yeah, one can take a walk in the moonlight, thinkin' that it's really nice
But two walkin' hand-in-hand is like addin' just a pinch of spice

It takes two, baby, it takes two, baby
Me and you, just takes two
It takes two, baby, it takes two, baby
To make a dream come true, just takes two

It's Not a Dream
Stevie Nicks
Demo


Now you know...
Now it's for real
It's not for sale
Surrender why it is you feel the same way
Same way that I do
No matter what it was, just as you guard
Whichever way
No, out of the way time

Can we talk?
"Why," you say
Always almost sad
Your sad, bright eyes...
No, it's not alright
No..."Why," you say
Your sad, bright eyes...
Are always almost sad
Keeps him out of the way, time

Until now...
I see you now
Ooh, till now
Well, you're almost there
Till now...
Well, I have known you for a long time
Till now...

Are you ready for this feeling?
Are you ready?
Well, are you ready for this feeling?
A dream in which I can still believe in...
Are you ready?
It's not a dream
A dream in which you say,
"I can still believe it"...
Believe it
It's not a dream...
It's not a dream...
"Cause I have not been dreaming...
And I have not been very strong..."
I hear him say...
(I hear him say)
"Oh no, it won't be long now"
I hear her say...
Use your fingertips, so strong,
And so we wait again for the storm...

It won't be long...
Till now
Ooh, until now
Well, you're almost here...
Until now
Well, I can almost see you coming
Until now...
It's not a dream,
No...

And you're going out...
On the clouds...
He gazed by golden streaked sunlight
Until the storm is over,
We wait again
(We wait again)
For the storm,
And the day's overcast
No turning back...

Until now...
She says, "A dream I can believe in..."
Well, are you ready?
(It's not a dream) I hear him say...
It's not a dream...
Are you ready?
Almost see you coming...
Well, are you ready?
(Golden streaming)
Well, I'd like to see you down...
Until now...
Are you ready?
Oooh...
I have known you for a long time
I've not been very strong...
Long, long time...
I hear him say
(Are you ready?)
A dream in which you can still believe in
Oooh, baby, it's not a dream
