"Don't Stop" as written by and Christine Mcvie....
If you wake up and don't want to smile
If it take just a little while
Open your eyes and look at the day
You'll see things in a different way

Don't stop thinking about tomorrow
Don't stop, it'll soon be here
It'll be, better than before
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone

Why not think about times to come
And not about the things that you've done
If your life was bad to you
Just think what tomorrow will do

Don't stop thinking about tomorrow
Don't stop, it'll soon be here
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone

All I want is to see you smile
If it takes just a little while
I know you don't believe that it's true
I never meant any harm to you

Don't stop thinking about tomorrow
Don't stop, it'll soon be here
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone

Don't stop thinking about tomorrow
Don't stop, it'll soon be here
It'll be, better than before
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone

(Ooh) don't you look back
(Ooh) don't you look back
(Ooh) don't you look back
(Ooh) don't you look back

    General CommentI like this song, it has a positive message to it, and that message is to think about the future and be optimistic about it, rather than dwell on the past.

    General CommentThis song is forever associated with Bill Clinton who first used it in his successful 1992 presidential campaign. It emphasized his youth and energy as well as personal charisma. He used in 1996 as well as played it on his last day in office. Clinton also entered the 2004 Democratic National Convention to this song.

    General CommentForgot this, too -- Christine was going to call the song "Yesterday's Gone", and rumour has it that this was the original name for the album 'Rumours'.

    General CommentI have to say this is probably one of my least favorite FM songs. Not that I dislike it but compared to most of their other work, "Don't Stop" falls behind in my opinion. FM has some great deep lyrics in almost all of their songs but in Don't Stop, the lyrics feel very manufactured and too general. I'm not saying it's a meaningless song, it obviously has a message. But overall the song feels like it was made simply as a throw-away crowd pleaser. Whether it was or not, who knows. Just my opinions.

    General CommentI heard that "Don't Stop" was written by Christine McVie as a message to an ex-lover of hers - she was telling her former lover basically to look forward to tomorrow, it's so great, etc... in other words, it was a veiled message telling her former lover to just forget about her. Then she had Lindsey Buckingham sing it. I'm not sure, but I think Christine was cheating on her husband John and having an affair with Lindsey. Sounds bizarre but I think that was the central relationship drama of the Rumours album, though I could have it mixed up.
