Go on, save yourself...
Leave the key here
Well, you love someone else...
And I shouldn't be here
Well, don't ask me why...
My walls are flamin'...
She's so willing, little one...
I won't be staying...

I have come to know
This world of changing faces
But I can't change the world
And I can't face it
So be true to me...
My walls are flamin'...
If you're so willing, little one....
Then I can't be staying...

What you did not need
Was a woman that was stronger
Well, you needed someone
To depend on you...
Well, I could not be her, baby...
I did not want to
But my first mistake...
Was to smile at you...

And now you feel the light
You run from the darkness...
Well, you never saw the change...
That woman's softness...
So you be true to me
Yeah, what love was stolen...
And there was nothing more
Than that your heart was broken...
Oh, I was flamin'...
I could not see the light...
I would not, yeah...
Flamin'...flamin'...flamin'...flamin'...

Yeah...yeah...
What you did not need
Was a lady who was stronger...
What you need is someone
To depend on you...
Well, I could not be her, baby...
I did not want to
My first mistake was to smile at you...

Oh...
Flame...
So be true to me...
What love was stolen
And there was nothing more...
Than that your heart was broken...
My heart was broken
Fly...
Well, to your castle in the sky...
Ooh, don't see the change...
Flamin'...

    General CommentThis song finally appeared on Fleetwood Mac's 2003 studio album SAY YOU WILL..the old demos from the 70s and 80s are better IMO, but the new version is great....

    She wrote this one about Lindsey during their breakup as well.
