Time casts a spell on you, but you won’t forget me.
I know I could have loved you, but you would have not let me.
I’ll follow you down ‘til the sound of my voice will haunt you…
You’ll never get away from the sound of the woman that loves you.
I remember when the live album, “The Dance”, was released my freshman year of high school. Somehow I found myself enamored with this band, who hit their peak in the late 70s.
Now, as an adult, I understand what “Rumours” was really all about - the end of a long and tumultuous relationship and detaching yourself from a person. Having experienced a breakup recently that nearly gutted me, I get it. When you lose the passion and intimacy and love of someone you wanted in your life forever, it’s not easy to cope.
The passion between Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham, in this video, is electric. Their love clearly extended past their final split and it’s clear they’ll always have some sort of bond. And that’s what makes a breakup so genuinely painful - what’s going to happen with the bond you shared? Where does the intimacy go? How can you move on from something you needed so desperately?
Needless to say, this entire album has been wonderfully cathartic for me. I’m still trying to heal, as trying as it’s been. But I’ve got hope that everything will be okay in the end.
