"Say You Love Me" as written by and Christine Mcvie....
Have mercy, baby on a poor girl like me,
You know I'm falling, falling, falling, at your feet,
I'm tingling right from my head to my toes,
So help me, help me, help me make the feeling go.

'Cause when the loving starts, and the lights go down,
And there's not another living soul around,
Then you woo me until the sun comes up,
And you say that you love me.

Have pity baby,
Just when I thought it was over,
Now you got me running, running, running for cover.
I'm begging you for a little sympathy,
And if you use me again it'll be the end of me.

'Cause when the loving starts, and the lights go down,
There's not another living soul around,
You woo me until the sun comes up,
And you say that you love me.

Baby, baby, hope you're going to stay away,
'Cause I'm getting weaker, weaker, everyday,
I guess I'm not as strong as I used to be,
And if you use me again it'll be the end of me.

'Cause when the loving starts, and the lights go down,
There's not another living soul around,
You woo me until the sun comes up,
And you say that you love me.

'Cause when the loving starts, and the lights go down,
Yhere's not another living soul around,
You woo me until the sun comes up,
And you say that you love me.
Say that you love me
Say that you love me

Fallin' fallin' fallin'
Fallin' fallin' fallin'
Fallin' fallin' fallin'
Fallin' fallin' fallin'
Fallin' fallin' fallin'

    General Commentit's "you woo me up till the sun comes up"

    a couple of fleetwood mac's songs do deal with drug addictions, but i don't think this one does. she's feeling used because he won't admit he loves her so they both run from it, or maybe he is using her and either way, she's falling. "say you love me" - it's sad, sweet, communication's important!

    General CommentA lyrical, harmonic song about what it feels like for a woman to feel euphoric from a sexual relationship. Although the "getting weaker every day" and "use me again" parts seem to hint that she knows it's not a healthy thing to do, but she's high off the feeling.

    General CommentNice example of boomer giddy optimism that was also a bit jaded.... and the musical arrangement is high style from everyone .. I know Lindsay was an alpha male and so I always hear this arrangement and his overlording of the song structure, instrumentation, etc. These were the days of heavy studio time high production value... they just pushed it further and further. It kind of adds to the tension when you know that about it... it almost makes me think of the song being used on a movie while some violent action is taking place onscreen... as Scorsese might do... in fact there is Mac song in Casino when they are sitting in the Caddy out in the garage to avoid the FBI listening... it's a really tense scene..

    General CommentI think this song is not about a woman who enjoys the sexual relationship but is feeling tired of being used by the man whom she feels deeply attached to and longs for him to feel the same, while all he wants is to continue the relationship in a purely meaningless and sexual manner.

    General CommentThis song was written about Stevie Nicks addiction to cocaine
    if you look at every line of the song, its paints a picture of what cocaine does to you
    /have pity baby, just when i thought it was over
    now you got me runnin', runnin', runnin' for cover/
    it talks about how she thinks she has it beat, but she can't overcome her addiction
