Sanctuary
Stevie Nicks
Bella Donna outtake


Living in a sanctuary...
It was mine alone
Ooh, it was my story...
My stronghold
This one is mine...
Do you care?
About heaven and hell...
Is there any love?

Just how far...
Must I go for you?
Living in the shadow...
Of this strange love of you...
Must I be the one...
To be condemned for you?

Sanctuary...
Was mine alone...
Was my story...
My stronghold
Through the wind and the rain...
We have ridden...
We alone...
Fight for our children

Tell me just how far...
Can I go for you?
Living in the shadow...
Of this strange love of you...
Must I be the one...
Always to be condemned for you?
Just how far...
Can I go?
Must I go...
Ooh... mine alone...

Living in a sanctuary...
Was mine alone
It was my story...
My stronghold
This one is mine...
Do you care?
Do I still have your love?
Was it always there?
Oh, it's there...

Just how far...
Can I go for you?
I'm living in that,
Living in that shadow...
Of that strong love of you
Must I, must I
Be the one... be the one...
Condemned for you...

Sara
(un-edited lyrics)
Stevie Nicks

I wanna be a star
I don't wanna be a cleaning lady...

Wait a minute baby
Stay with me awhile
Said you'd give me light
But you never told me 'bout the fire
Oooh
Ooh... ooh...
Ooh... ooh...

Drowning in the sea of love
Where everyone would love to drown
But now it's gone
It doesn't matter what for
When you build your house
Then call me home...

And he was just like a great dark wing
Within the wings of a storm
I think I had met my match
He was singing
And undoing... and undoing... ooh, the laces
Undoing the laces

Ooh... ooh...
Drowning in the sea of love
It's where everyone would love to drown
And now it's gone
It doesn't matter what for
No sorrow for sorrow
You can have no more

Said "Sara, you're the poet in my heart"
Never change... never stop
But now it's gone
It doesn't matter what for
But when you build your house
Oh then, (call me)
Call me home...

Hold on...
The night is coming
And the starling flew for days
I'll stay home at night... all the time
I'd go anywhere... anywhere... anywhere
Ask me and I'm there... yeah
Ask me and I'm there... 'cause I care
(The laces... the laces...)
I care...

In the sea of love
Where everyone would love to drown
But now it's gone
They say it doesn't matter anymore
If you build your house
Then please call me... home

Sara... you're the poet in my heart
Never change... and don't you ever stop
Now it's gone
No... it doesn't matter anymore
When you build your house
I'll come by...

Oh, dreaming...
And the wind became... crazy
And he reached her gently
(Heartbeat)
Dreaming and the wind became... crazy
And there the heartbeat...
When it never really died
Dreaming... never really died... (ooh why)
Would you swallow all your pride
But could you speak a little louder?
Dreaming...
All I ever wanted...
Was to know that you were dreaming
But there's a heartbeat and it never really died
Never really died
No, it never really died
Never really died

Could you speak a little louder
Swallow all your pride
Ooh why...
Would you never change... never change...

And the wind became,
It became crazy...
And listen for that crazy wind
Because it will make you dream awhile
And there's a heartbeat
(Smile for my darling)
Well it never really died
Dreaming... and the wind became...
(Smile for my Sara)
Became crazy...
(Smile for my Sara)...

Stay with me a while
Said you'd give me light
But you never told me 'bout the fire

And he was just like... a great dark wing
Within the wings of a storm
I think I had met my match
He was singin'... and undoin'... undoing
The laces... the laces

("Hit chorus")

Oh, drownin' in the sea of love
Where everyone would love to drown
But now it's gone... it doesn't matter what for
When you build your house... well then call me

He cried Sara... you're the poet in my heart
Never change... never stop
And now it's gone... it doesn't matter anymore
No sorrow for Sara... well you can have no more

Secret
Robin Zander
Stevie Nicks on background vocals
Robin Zander (1993)

Baby come close
So no one can hear
I want to whisper something, whisper something
In your ear
I want to tell you things
That I told no one else
I want to tell you things
From deep inside myself

Ow, ow, ow, cause I have to whisper
Ow, ow, ow

Can you keep a secret?
Locked inside your heart
Can you keep a secret?
It's tearing me apart
If I, if I trust in you
Will you give it back to me
Can you keep a secret?

What good is a door
If it's always kept shut
What could happen to me
If I open up
I want to tell you things
Beacause I'm surprised, girl
I hope you won't be distant
Look in my eyes

Oh, oh, oh come a little closer oh, oh, oh

But can you keep a secret?
Locked up in your heart
Can you keep a secret?
It's tearing me apart
If I give my love to you
Would you give it back to me
Ooh, can you keep a secret?

But can you keep a secret?
Locked up in your heart
Can you keep a secret?
It's tearing me apart
If I give my love to you
Would you give it back to me
Ooh, can you keep a secret?

Secret Love

Almanac demo


Come on, it's time to go upstairs...
But I don't want to be leaving you here
I can't go be in that room alone...
When I know that you're down here in tears
I'm not asking forever from you...
I'm just asking to be held awhile
In a timeless search for love that might work...
Still, we're already paying the price
But you need some rest...
My darling, it's best...
But we've already passed it, I cried...

Ooohee...
Listen to me...
My secret love secretly...
Died...

See the World Go By
Stevie Nicks
Possibly a Fritz demo


Bubbles and balloons sailing upward to the sky...
You and I...as the days go by...
Cinnamon and wine...
Pouring from a bottle amber never clearing...
You and I see the world go by
Purest of ground...
How rich is the gold...
What is this I've planned...
Should I be so bold...
To make such a heavy mixture...
I have found a new recipe...
Not what if I have made for me...
Bubbles and balloons sailing upward to the sky
You and I see the world go by
Cinnamon and wine
Pouring from a bottle amber never clearing
You and I see the world go by...

Separate Lives
Phil Collins and Marilyn Martin
White Nights soundtrack, 1985
Stevie Nicks supposedly on background vocals


You call me from the room in your hotel
All full of romance for someone that you met
And telling me how sorry you were, leaving so soon
And that you miss me sometimes, when you're alone in your room
Do I feel lonely too?

You have no right to ask me how I feel
You have no right to speak to me so kind
I can't go on, just holding on to ties
Now that we're living (living) separate lives

Well I held on to let you go
And if you lost your love for me, well you never let it show
There was no way to compromise
So now we're living (living) separate lives

Ooh, it's so typical, love leads to isolation
So you build that wall (build that wall)
Yes you build that wall (build that wall)
And you make it stronger...

Well, you have no right to ask me how I feel
You have no right to speak to me so kind
Some day I might (I might) find myself looking in your eyes
But for now, we'll go on living separate lives
Yes for now, we'll go on living separate lives
Oooh, separate lives

She Loves Him Still
Stevie Nicks
Rock a Little outtake


Oh no...
No one heard her call his name
No one heard a sound she made
They wouldn't have liked it much anyway
To know that she still loves him

No one understands this love...
No one ever will
Till his dying day not even he himself can change this
She loves him still...

I miss my friend...
I miss the sound of his laughter
She remembers him saying...
"Well, where are you going?
Oh, just what is it that you are after?"

No one understands this man...
No one ever will
Till his dying day not even he himself can change this
She loves him still...

"So how are you?
Have you learned to deal with this?"
"Well, oh no, "she says
"No, I have not learned...
You see, I cannot deal without you..."
So the flame still burns...
The flame burns on...

No one understands this love...
No one ever will
Till his dying day
She was heard to say...
She loves him still...

And the sands of time like shattering glass go past her
She still loves him
Oh no, they wouldn't have liked it much anyway
But she still loves him
And the sands of time like shattering glass go past her
Straight back to the sea
She still loves him

Silent Night
Covered by Stevie Nicks
A Very Special Christmas 1987


Silent night... holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant, so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night...
Well, it was a holy night...

Silent night (silent night)
Holy night (holy night)
Shepherds quake (shepherds quake)
At the sight (at the sight)
Glory streams from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing "Alleleuia"
Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night... holy night
Son of God (son of God)
Love's pure light (love's pure light)
Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night...
Well, it was a holy night
Well, it was a silent night
Oooh, holy night
Well, it was a silent night
Well, it was a holy night
Well, it was a silent night
Silent night...
Holy night...
Well, it was a holy night
Yes, it was a holy night
Silent...

Sisters of the Moon
Stevie Nicks
Piano demo


Intense silence as she walked in the room
Her black robes trailing, sister of the moon
Black widow spider makes more sound than she
And black moons in those eyes of hers
Made more sense to me
Heavy persuasion... hard to breathe
She was dark at the top of the stairs
And she called... to me

And so, I followed
As friends often do
I cared not for love nor money,
And I think she knew
And the people, they adore her
Were always the most cruel
She asked me "be my sister...
Sister of the moon"

So we make our choices, when there is no choice
We listen to their voices, ignoring our own voice
And the people, how they love her,
They keep filling up her room
But the knowledge stands between us
Sisters... of the moon
Sisters... sisters...

Some call me sister of the moon,
Some say illusions are my game
They like to wrap me in velvet robes of gloom...
Does anyone know my name?

Intense silence as she walked in the room
Her black robes were trailing, sister of the moon
Black widow spider makes more sound than she
And black moons in those eyes of hers
Made more sense to me
Heavy persuasion... it was hard to breathe
She was dark at the top of the stairs
She called... she called...
To me...

Stevie: And, Andy, you can listen to this and you'll know exactly where it's coming from. I don't know. This might not be anything that anybody could even use...cause I'm going to use it. This is the closing thing to something I'm going to do, but I might not do for two years, so, it doesn't matter. Umm...and I'll probably make mistakes. I'll just...keep going, and then you can just, uh...because I'm...if..if I start thinking about it, I'll definitely make mistakes, and if I st...keep stopping and starting over, I'll never get through it. Ok?

Smiling Islands
Robbie Patton; duet with Stevie Nicks
Orders from Headquarters, 1982


I don't want to live forever
But I don't want to die alone
A pair of eyes that love me
Is all that I want

I don't want to say no goodbyes
But I don't want our love in pain
Life's too short to play
In those kinds of games

Oh, I don't want to be the one leaving
But I see our winds have changed
We're sailing in different directions
Yet we both wanna stay close friends
Like smiling islands

I don't need to see your pretending
And I don't want those lies in bed
It's better to end it
Then cheat on what's left

And I don't want to make you unhappy
And I don't want to let us go
You're the one with the eyes
That give me hope

Oh, I don't want to be the one leaving
But I see our winds have changed
We're sailing in different directions
Yet we both wanna stay close friends
Like smiling islands

Then one day when we've sailed
Over every sea
We'll remember that we sailed away
Honestly

Ooohoo...
Ooohoo...
I don't want to live forever
But I don't want to die alone
A pair of eyes that love me
Is all that I want

I don't want to say no goodbyes
But I don't want our love in pain
Life's too short to play
In those kinds of games

I don't need to see your pretending
And I don't want those lies in bed
It's better to end it
Then cheat on what's left

And I don't want to make you unhappy
And I don't want to let us go
You're the one with the eyes
That give me hope
Smiling islands...

Solitary Man
Written by Neil Diamond
Perfomed by Chris Isaak and Stevie Nicks,
at the AHI Benefit, 9-23-00

Belinda was mine till the time that I found her,
Holding Jim, loving him
Sue came along and loved me strong, that's what I thought
Me and Sue, that died too

Don't know if I will but until I can find me,
Girl who will stay and won't play games behind me
I'll be what I am
A solitary man
A solitary man

I had it to here being where love's a small word,
Paper ring, part-time thing
I know it's been done having one girl who loves you,
Right or wrong, weak or strong

Don't know if I will, but until I can find me
Girl who will stay and won't play games behind me
I'll be what I am
A solitary man
Solitary woman

Don't know if I will, but until I can find me
Girl who will stay and won't play games behind me
I'll be what I am
Solitary man
Solitary man
Solitary man...

Something Exquisite
Stevie Nicks
Rock a Little outtake


I knew that I had come face to face
With a stranger...
With someone that I knew was...
Crazier than you were
But...
If you do not run the race...
How will you know if you do not run it...
Then you cannot win it...ever...
If you do not run the race
Then you cannot win it, ever
How will you know...

The passenger takes a train...
He cannot get off
The train keeps on for days...
Well, it isn't enough...
It isn't enough...
It isn't enough...

If you do not run the race...
Then you cannot win it...ever...
How will you know...(if you can do it)
If you do not run it
If you do not run the race
How will you know...
If you do not run it...

And each time thinking...
Will this be the one?
Great eyes...looking down...
And your ways...
Well, I want to learn them....
I want my life...to concern him
Still on the edge of...
Something exquisite

Ooooh...
Ten minutes, standing in the room with him...
She feels a strange misgiving...

If you do not run the race...
Then you cannot win it
In the dim light of her rooms
She feels a strange misgiving

Well, I knew that I had come
Face to face...with a stranger...
Someone who was
Crazier than I was...

But if you do not run the race...
How will you know
If you do not run it...
Well, the passenger takes the train
And he cannot get off...
Races are run...

Oooh....
Ten minutes, standing in the room with you...
I felt a strange misgiving
Well, in the dim light of my room
Still on the edge of...something exquisite...
Sorrow
Brilliant is your color, baby
Brilliant is your something exquisite
Sorrow...
I know the sounds of a warning...
On the wind...
It's a strange misgiving

2001 'Trouble in Shangri-La';
1984 'Streets of Fire' soundtrack; Almanac demo (1974)


I'm tired
Thirsty...
Wild-eyed
In my misery...
Timeless...
In your finery
A high price...
For your luxury

Sorcerer...
Who is the master?
Man and woman on a star stream...
In the middle of a snow dream
Sorcerer...
Show me the high life
Come over...
Let me put you on ice...

I'm tired...
Well, I need you badly
Wild-eyed...
In the middle of your dream...
Timeless...
It's a mystery...
All the way...
Now it's never what you see...
(Never what you see...)

All around...
Black-ink darkness...
Who found...
The lady from the mountain?

I'm tired...
Thirsty...
Wild-eyed...
In my mystery...
Timeless...
In your finery...
A high price...
For your luxury...

Space Needle
Stevie Nicks
Trouble in Shangri-La outtake


I remember the long, cold winter
I remember being hot all the time
I remember the black Space Needle
Casting its black shadow down through time
I remember the loss of enchantment
In everyone I'd see
And seeing my own face
In each one of their faces
Looking back at me

Beautiful faces...
Not so beautiful anymore
When it began I was standing at the crossroads
That was then... this is now

Through the long, hard summer
I remember feeling cold in the heat
I remember an icy feeling
Working through the streets

I remember the loss of enchantment
Everyone I'd see
I see my own face in each one of their faces
Looking back at me
My own face... in each one of their faces
Looking back at me

Beautiful faces...
Not so beautiful anymore
When it began I was standing at the crossroads
That was then... this is now

One day comes, and then it goes
It's all the same to me now
Another day here is like another day closer
To getting out of this town
And one thing I said I would never do
Was come from a place of fear
But fear is nothing, nothing to me now
...I no longer care
Fear is nothing to me now
I no longer care

Beautiful faces...
Not so beautiful anymore
When it began I was standing at the crossroads
That was then... this is now

We've got to get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
A haunting song from the rock and roll past...
Ooh, they said that, too
Now we are dying, just like them
It's a stranger deja vu
Ooh, the tar people are back again
Sad... very true

Well, they're back again...
Sad, it's very true

Beautiful faces...
Not so beautiful anymore
When it began I was standing at the crossroads
That was then... this is now

Sometimes I feel like how could this have happened,
How could this happen to me?
Sometimes the sun shines from behind the black needle
But it is never sunny
Ooh, it is always black
There is always a shadow
A shadow following me
My music is lost, I am very thin
I am always in need
My music is lost, I am very thin
I am always in need

Beautiful faces...
Not so beautiful anymore
When it began I was standing at the crossroads
I was hopeful, that was then... this is now
When it began I was standing at the crossroads
I was hopeful, that was then... this is now
That was then... and this is now
This is now...
This is now...
This is now...
This is now...
Now...

Christian
(Also known as Mirror Ball and Spinning Wheels)
Stevie Nicks
Demo, 1980


So in your laughter...you do scream
And within your screams, you do pretend
You ask of me...ask of me nothing
On your terms we're no longer friends
Harder hard luck stories...
Have been told down through the years

Spinning wheels...crystal perfection...
Not to be confused with the tears

Oh, Christian...what about your sad, wild dreams?
What kind of feelings...do you feel for me?
Do you cherish...all those memories?
What kind of feelings...do you feel for me?

Half past one...and the street lamps darken
Can you regard that woman as you regard yourself?
With the faith of a child...have you given enough?
Have you given too much?

Oh, Christian...what about your sad, wild dreams?
What kind of feelings...do you feel for me?

Sweet things that we live for...they say that dreams are made of that
Echoes of a lonely, lonely time...sing to me
A recurring line...no quiet cries...
Something that was...no quiet cries for us

But it was only love...wasn't it?
Only love...wasn't it?
It was only love...wasn't it...
Only love...sweet things that we live for...
But it was only love...

Well, I said...I said..."Playing with fire was wrong..."
Used to be silver...
Long, long, run away...you used to make me shiver

Stevie: If you want (?) it's alright.
Male Voice #1: Put this here?

Shelly: You're right. When you got it all figured out....I get it. Okay, stop poking on my...
Male Voice #1: We can either hold that mic cord or we can do this.
Tom: No
Stevie: I don't know what to do with it, ya know? I only tried it once...and that's when I just started fucking around with just choruses, same with chord. I've got it. I can't write.
Shelly: You're right. That's right.
Stevie: So if you know more chords than me
Tom: No, I'm just takin'..taking out some. I mean, it's the same chords.
Stevie: Oh
Shelly: I'd like to try and to a couple of (?) right now.
Tom: I'm just (?) 'em
Stevie: What?
Tom: Just to see if it works. If it don't, we'll try it better.
Stevie: All right. Just..keep track..so I know what's being taken out so I don't...
Shelly: You know what I'm sayin'? I don't know if he even plays it.
Stevie: ..so that I don't sing the part that's being taken out.
Tom: Ok
Stevie: You got that?
Shelly: It's like...at the top it..it's like a big long...it's gonna be a real long song. I mean, like, thirty-four beats, but...
Tom: Yeah
Stevie: Ok (laughing)

Shelly: It seems to chug along pretty good, but it's
Male Voice #2: Yeah..we wanna do that.
Tom: Hey..uh..I got an idea I wanna just try, and if it don't work we'll go right back to it, but ..uh...the C to F part..if we did that half as long..
Shelly: Is that a bridge or a chorus?
Tom: No, that's the verse.
Shelly: Alright
Tom: The main dog. Just doing that half as long as we were going to do to do it, and that'll be all the difference.
Stevie: Does anybody want any of Judy's (?) cough syrup?

Shelly: Something's wrong with the tape. Tell that to Stevie.
Stevie: Oh. Debbie's dancing. Look! She's dancing. This is a good sign.
Tom: Ok. That's...that's more intersting...umm..
Stevie: That's my secretary in there dancing.
Tom: Why, in the end..in the end , for some reason, I kept wanting to not cut it in half, and I liked it in the front..in the first two verses.
Male Voice: That's fine
Stevie: (whispering) Debbie, that's great.
Tom: And now I don't want to get that..concept yet
Male Voice: Oh, that makes sense.
Male Voice: Yes
Male Voice #2: And I don't that one part cut out yet.

Male Voice #2: I didn't miss it.
Male Voice #3: No it makes...
Tom: Sounds like Otis Redding.
Male Voice #3: It makes(?)
Stevie: Yeah, it does..like Temptations or something, that kind of thing.
Tom: So, if the last one was twice as long?
Stevie: Cause..if your...we're talking about a bunch of people, and it said...when it says "he said
Male Voice #2: Probably need to be making it longer and let it go.
Tom: We make it longer, and the last verse would work, right? And..
Male Voice #2: Should just keep building the intensity and when it finally goes, it'll...
Male Voice #3: Yeah...well, if you view it in that context it'll work.
Tom: So then...if the last one was twice as long, it will build the intensity until we hit the A Minor, right? And then...uh..when we come back..to the final D, alright? We should really..double-hold that fine pluck to where it's silly, like uh
Male Voice #4: Yeah
Tom: ..like Otis would do..something like..just long time..and then we'll go back to the C/F, and that'll be the fade-out.
Stevie: Do you...do you see in that part what I'm doing when it says "he said, this is the price we would finally paid..pay", and then "I said, I don't believe you. I need you to stay"? "she said", his old lady, "but we've been together for so long"
Male Voice: Yeah
Stevie: "And I said, playing with fire..."
Tom: That's wrong
Stevie: So it's like a whole...it's a...ya know
Tom: Sure
Stevie: If you think about it, all these people that I'm...that I'm quoting so good
Tom: Ok
Stevie: Ya know?
Male Voice: Just correct me.
Tom: Yeah, that good. And re...remember the..bridge comes after two rounds, right?
Stevie: Play each part like that person. So, ya know?
Male Voice #2: What are you callin' the bridge? A Minor?
Tom: The...the solo...the guitar solo
Male Voice #2: In fact, what if we played it just like you..the way you're playing it?
Tom: Yeah. Let's..I was just thinking that.
Male Voice #2: Ya know, like real big holes
Tom: Real tight
Male Voice #2: If we just played that close

Male Voice: Right..right here, right?


(music)

Tom: You get it?
Male Voice: Ok
Stevie: I could do something there, then we'll leave it in maybe.
Tom: You know what we oughta do?
Stevie: doo.. do do do do..do do do do
Tom: We're gonna have to make it double long, right? When we come back, instead of Stevie comin' right in on..on the vocals, after uh..the bridge, right? We'll come back, and we'll do a...do an organ trip...
Male Voice: Over the C?
Tom: ..in that solo, over..over a verse length of the C, yeah, but we won't go to G, alright?
Male Voice #4: Let's come back to it
Tom: We'll just play it around once, and then Stevie can start singing and then we're back to normal.
Male Voice: Yeah
Tom: That'll work.
Voice: <sniff...sniff....sniff>
Tom: And we'll try...try holding the last few a little bit long, maybe, that may or may not work. Ok, let's run it again.
Stevie: Ok
Tom: Tape this in case we..have to remember the arrangement.
Male Voice #2: In case we get lost?

Stevie: Were you dancin' Deb?
That sounds real good. But every time that A Minor comes, you know, in the verse, if we...if we could come in and..do..do..(makes strange noise)

Walter Egan
Stevie Nicks on background vocals
Not Shy (1978)


It's a dirty day in L.A.
A rainy night in New York City
I feel like I'm so far away
From the good things life has to give me

I know I never will be satisfied
But it don't make me worry
If I step, I'll just take my time
And I'm never in a hurry

Star in the dust
But it's gonna shine someday
Star in the dust
I'm gonna be fine, yeah yeah

I'm looking for a woman to hold me
'Cause love ain't just enough to get by
I recall what somebody once told me
They said, "Only the lucky ones will survive"

I know I never will be satisfied
But I'm never going to stop
I'll keep on trying 'til the day
That I'm riding on the top

Star in the dust
But it's gonna shine someday
Star in the dust
I'm gonna be fine, yeah yeah

Alright...

When I feel like I'm fallin'
I tell myself, "It's only a stage"
And I hear somebody callin'
They say, "Pick yourself up and start over again"
I know I never will be satisfied
But I'm never going to stop
I'll keep on trying 'til the day
That I'm riding on the top

Stay Away
Stevie Nicks
Demo, 1980

Tonight my love lies here with trust
Because I am this nightbird...
Sleeping now in the golden circle
Because I am the nightbird...
Sleeping now the moment is gone...
I don't stand between him and the world...
All I want is no one to touch
While I guard him in the golden circle...
My eyes warn them...
And all that see the fierceness wisdom...
Do not enter inside the circle...
There's a man sleeping so peaceful...stay away...

Sleeping now the moment is gone...
I stand between him and his world...
And while I watch him no one dare touch him
All I got in the golden circle...
And my eyes warn them in flashing forces of wisdom...
Do not enter inside this circle, this man is sleeping...
Stay away...stay away...stay away...

Well in the seven books of Rhiannon
Another of the treasures were the three birds...
That the birds of Rhiannon sing away the pain...
Take away the darkness...
And sing you golden rainbows...
Just this minute the three birds are flying in perfect formation...
The emerald, the gold and the snow white...
Because they have lived forever...

Down the glorious pathway came the birds...
Singing their songs again...
He who wrote the sunshine and the skies full of gold...
The music filled the air and everything was fine...
Whatever happens to each one of us...
Will be a wish, be an answer...
You are and everything is fine...

If you listen carefully you just might hear the song of Rhiannon...
The birds are singing for us...I can just hear them now...
I love you... I loved you before I loved your song...
I loved you before I loved your song...

Strong Enough
Sheryl Crow
Tuesday Night Music Club
Performed as a duet with Stevie Nicks at VH1 Storytellers


God, I feel like hell tonight
Tears of rage I cannot fight
I'd be the last to help you understand
Are you strong enough to be my man?
My man...

Nothing's true and nothing's right
So let me be alone tonight
'Cause you can't change the way I am
Are you strong enough to be my man?

Lie to me
I promise I'll believe
Lie to me...
But please don't leave

I have a face I cannot show
I make the rules up as I go
It's try and love me if you can
Are you strong enough to be my man?
My man...
Are you strong enough to be my man?
Are you strong enough?
Are you strong enough...my man

When I've shown you that I just don't care
When I'm throwing punches in the air
When I'm broken down and I can't stand
Are you man enough to be my man?

Lie to me
I promise I'll believe
Lie to me...
But please don't leave

Sunday Kind of Love
performed by Etta James
written by B. Belle/L. Prima/A. Leonard/S. Rhodes
covered by Stevie Nicks at Stormy Weather benefit;
Los Angeles, CA 11-13-02

I want a Sunday kind of love
A love to last past Saturday night
And I'd like to know it's more than love at first sight
I want a Sunday kind of love oh yeah

I want a love that's on the square
Can't seem to find somebody, someone to care
And I'm on a lonely road that leads to nowhere
I need a Sunday kind of love

I do all my Sunday dreaming
And all my Sunday scheming
Every minute, every hour, every day
And I'm hopin' to discover
A certain kind of lover
Who will show me the way
And my arms need someone to enfold
To help keep me warm
When Mondays, and Tuesdays grow cold
And I need a love for all my life
To have and to hold
I need a Sunday kind of love

I do all my Sunday dreaming
And all my Sunday scheming
Every minute, every hour, every day
And I'm hopin' to discover
A certain kind of lover
Who will show me the way
And my arms need someone to enfold
To help keep me warm
When Mondays, and Tuesdays grow cold
And I need a love for all my life
To have and to hold
I need a Sunday kind of love

I don't want a Monday or a Tuesday
A Wednesday or a Thursday
Friday or Saturday
I don't want nothin' baby
I want a Sunday kind of love
