Written in 1976 by Stevie Nicks “Dreams” is a philosophical ode to the end of a love affair. Exceptionally personal and painfully honest the song was written during the recording of Rumours and directed at her life and business partner of six years Lindsey Buckingham. “Dreams” become the only one of Fleetwood Mac’s songs to ever make it to #1 in the US and sell over a million copies.
 
Thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
 

 

Dreams

Written by Stevie Nicks
 
Now here you go again, you say
You want your freedom
Well who am I to keep you down
It’s only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness
Like a heartbeat drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost, and what you had, and what you lost

Thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Say women they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know, you’ll know

Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself, it’s only me
Who wants to wrap around your dreams and,
Have you any dreams you’d like to sell?
Dreams of loneliness,
Like a heartbeat, drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering, what you had,
And what you lost and what you had and what you lost

Thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know

Thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Say, women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know
You’ll know, you will know, you’ll know
