"after the glitter fades" as written by and Stevie Nicks....
Well I never thought I'd make it
Here in Hollywood
I never thought I'd ever
Want to stay
What I seem to touch these days
Has turned to gold
What I seem to want
Well you know I'll find a way

For me it's the only life
That I've ever known
And love is only one
Fine star away
Even though the living
Is sometimes laced with lies
It's alright
The feeling remains
Even after the glitter fades

The loneliness of a one night stand
Is hard to take
We all chase something
And maybe this is a dream
The timeless face of a rock and roll
Woman while her heart breaks
Oh you know the dream keeps coming
Even when you forget to feel

For me it's the only life
That I've ever known
And love is only one fine star away
Even though the living
Is sometimes laced with lies
It's alright
The feeling remains
Even after the glitter fades

For me it's the only life
That I've ever known
And love is only one fine star away
Even though the living
Is sometimes laced with lies
It's alright
The feeling remains
Even after the glitter fades
Oh you know the feeling remains
Even after the glitter fades
Oh the feeling remains
Even after the glitter

    General CommentGREAT SONG BY STEVIE! It has a more country feel, than most Stevie songs, hey it even peaked on the COUNTRY CHARTS in 82!! It's a great song. Faith Hill says it's one of her all time favorites! It really is a great song, written about the price often paid for music....especially being one of Rock's leading lady, STEVIE NICKS!

    General Comment"it was about loving to do this part of it, and balancing it with the other part of it, the not glitter part of it." -- "it's about the glitter part getting you through." - S.Nicks on "After the glitter fades."

    Obviously like she said, about the balance rock stars feel and often struggle with, between loving to sing and do shows, and not enjoying the fame, and lack of privacy part of the whole thing..sometimes it's not all "glitter."
