Needles and Pins
R. Nitzche and Sonny Bono
Live duet with Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks
Pack up the Plantation, 1981


I saw her today, I saw her face
It was a face I loved and I knew
I had to run away
And get down on my knees and pray
That there'd come a day
And still it begins, needles and pins
Because of all my pride
The tears I've got to hide

Oh, I thought I was smart
I'll hold her heart
And I didn't think I'd do
But now I see
She's worse to him than me
Let her go ahead, and take his love instead
And one day she will see

Just how to say please
And get down on her knees
Yeah that's how it begins
She'll feel those needles and pins
I know, I know

Why can't I stop and tell myself I'm wrong
I'm wrong, so wrong
Why can't I stand up
And tell myself I'm strong?

Because I saw her today, I saw her face
It was a face I loved and I knew
I had to run away
And get down on my knees and pray
That there'd come a day
And still it begins, needles and pins
Because of all my pride
The tears I've gotta hide
Oh needles and pins
Needles and pins
Needles and pins

Nightvision
"Written by Stevie and Nan 2-9-84"
Unreleased poem


As I woke this morning
I thought I spoke your name
Floating... gently floating...
Two memories... the same

I feel as I know you
Have I been here once before
I remember something...
But tell me do you remember more...

Kiss me when I ask you to
Feel it in the wind...
I'm right here where I was before
Could you tell me where I've been...

Do I hear a footstep on the stair...
Smell seasalt on the wind
See stars bright and storm swept skies
Feel something once again

Night Gallery
Stevie Nicks
Rock a Little outtake


Well, every day I search to find the new me
Some new thing to say, something to make you stay
Something that might mean something to you
Something...

And in my weariless search
There is no company
Down the road...I move by myself
You say you stood in her gallery...

Night gallery...
Say you stood in her gallery
Night gallery...
In the night gallery
What did you find?
Night gallery...
An answer to me?

In the paintings on the wall,
She says, "there it is...
"If you look hard enough"
Nothing more than I could really say or give
Nothing but to say I love you so much...
In the night gallery...
(So much...)
In the night gallery...
Say to me...
Just tell me to go on...
Night gallery...
Maybe you really know me
Night gallery...
Something in my heart...
Night gallery...

Night Hawk
Stevie Nicks
Unreleased
For Rick (Nowels?) January 1986


Whoa...
Shadowlight... is it night... is it day...
Stars and sun merge as one
Beautiful bird of prey
I should have run...
Should have run...

Crawling to you... calling to you...
Screaming your name to the sky
I ask you... take me there... again
And again... yes, again... oh, baby why
Do I need you... yes, do I need you...
Oh, like no other... like a night hawk
Pereguine of the princess...keeper of the light...
Take me tonight to the sky

Whoa...yeah!
Fingers... in the dark... miss their mark
Hair like angel's wings...like the feathers
Of a nightbird... of a night hawk
White winged dove lies still... has no will
Waits until...
The hawk soars again
High into the sky
Takes her there again... oh, again...
Oh... yeah

Candles... like shooting stars
Wine... like a mountain stream
Thunder and moonlight and sunrise
Crystal balls and dreams
Visions in the night come true...
It is you... always you
That I needed... no stranger to me, my love
I feel good, you make me feel so good
Strangely enough... the gypsy has come home
To herself... in a dream
Waking... still the dream
And not alone...
No... not alone
No... never alone...

Night hawk... singer of songs... player of
Melodies... white dove... no fear... no fear
To fly... No storm tonight... by the sea

No Light
(Planets of the Universe)
Stevie Nicks
Demo, 1976
Appears on Trouble in Shangri-La (2001)
as "Planets of the Universe"


And the planets of the universe...
Go their way
Not astounded by the sun or the moon...
Or by the day
You and I will simply disappear
Out of sight...
But I'm afraid...soon they'll be...
No light

I will never love again
The way I loved you
You will never rule again
The way you ruled...
We will never change again
The way we are changing...
Ah, you'll forget the chill of love...
But not the strain

You will remember...
But I will die a slow death...
It's only an overture
To something that was best
And don't condescend to me
Take your leave...
Take your leave...
Take your leave of me
Disappear through the air...
I wish you gone...
And I don't care

Now I know...
Ooh, I was wrong to live for a dream...
If I had my life to live over...
I would never dream...
I would never dream
Oh, I still wish you gone...
And I will live alone...
Oh, I....

No Questions Asked
Stevie Nicks
Early demo version


(Cuts in)
I'm broken hearted...
Well I broke down
Like a little girl

Night after night
She sees him whenever she can
Night after night,
No questions asked

He sees her whenever he can
No questions asked
Night after night
Oh, night after night

She sees him whenever she can, baby
There's no questions asked, no baby
Night after night, she cries... she cries!
No questions asked...
No questions asked
No questions asked

Nomad
Stevie Nicks
Demo, 1973
Appears on Trouble in Shangri-La (2001)
as "Candlebright"

For no special reason
I'm leaving you for a while tonight
I'm flying far above you...
Still I love you,
You make things right
I've been with you before...
I'll be with you again
I'll come back for more, yeah...
The story has... a strange ending...
Oh, yeah...

Well, you know me...
I'm a nomad
I can't feel bad
About the way I am
I've been rolling around
My whole life
You're my candlebright in the window...
You guide me back again...
And I come when you shine
You are not my friend, no...
But I am something of a dreamer...
I am something of a dreamer...
I am something of a dreamer

Not Fade Away
Written by Norman Petty and Charles Hardin
Covered by Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty live in concert


I wanna tell you how it's gonna be
You're gonna give your love to me
I'm gonna love you night and day
Love is love and not fade away
Well, love is love and not fade away
And my love is bigger than a Cadillac
I'll try to show it if you drive me back

Your love for me has got to be real
Before you'd have noticed how I feel
Love is real not fade away
Well, love is real not fade away

I wanna tell you how it's gonna be
You're gonna give your love to me
Love that lasts more than one day
Well, love is love and not fade away
Well, love is love and not fade away
Well, love is love and not fade away
Well, love is love and not fade away
Not fade away
Not fade away...

Not Make Believe
Stevie Nicks
Trouble in Shangri-La outtake


Isn't just that we cause each other such pain
Everywhere we go now, at home or at play
It hurts my self esteem, it hurts my everything
I am reeling... oh, it hurts my feelings
Sometimes it was heavenly
Sometimes it was too heavy
Sometimes it's just too much for me
I want to run away...

Then there are the things, cast the doubt away
The things that made me stay for so long
Not make believe then, I'm not make believe now

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times
And they both rushed by, like a thief in the night
Taking no prisoners, just like the first time
Adventures in paradise...
Just like the first time

Then there are things, cast the doubt away
The things that made me stay for so long
Not make believe then, I'm not make believe now
Not make believe then, I'm not make believe now
Not make believe then, no I'm not make believe now

Not make believe then, I'm not make believe now
I didn't understand then, but I understand now
It's written on the wind, we're not make believe now

Nothing Ever Changes
Stevie Nicks
The Wild Heart outtake version


What I'm trying to say is...
Nothing ever changes...does it
I can turn all your music on
I can make you feel alive
I am gone, but never gone from you
It was just the first time...

Waiting...
It could be anyone
It could come from my heart, for crying out loud
Nothing can be saved here

Am I still crying on your shoulders?
I am seldom wrong...
Come back...little girl
It's your last chance
Stranger ones than you have fallen...

I can turn all your music on
I can make you feel alive
I am gone, but never gone from you
It was just the first time...

That I ever played for you
This was long forgotten...
When it was still my song
Still my song...
Was the first time...
Just the first time...
Never played for you...
Long forgotten...
When it was my song

Nothing ever changes...
Does it
Nothing ever changes...
Does it
Nothing ever changes...
No, it doesn't
Nothing ever changes...
No, it doesn't

Nothing ever changes...
First time, first time...
It's just the first time...
It was still my song
Nothing ever changes...
Nothing ever changes...
Does it
No, never does...
Nothing ever changes...
Does it?
