Every night that goes between
I feel a little less
As you slowly go away from me
This is only another test


Every night you do not come
Your softness fades away
Did I ever really care that much
Is there anything left to say


Every hour of fear I spend
My body tries to cry
Living through each empty night
A deadly call inside


I haven't felt this way I feel
Since many a year ago
But in those years and the lifetimes past
I did not deal with the road


And I did not deal with you I know
Tho the love has always been
So I search to find an answer there
So I can truly win


So I try to say
Goodbye my friend
I'd like to leave you with something warm
But never have I been a blue calm sea
I have always been a storm


We were frail
She said
"Everynight he will break your heart"
I should have known from the first
I'd be the broken hearted
But I loved you from the start
Save us. . .
And not all the prayers in the world--
could save us

    General CommentOne of THE BEST songs Stevie has ever written. This song appeared on Fleetwood Mac's 1979 Double Album "TUSK." This song really hits home with lots of fans, because it can really relate to everyone's lives. "never have I been a blue calm sea, I have always been a storm.." so true for all of us, and of course Stevie! She's the best singer/songwriter of all time...I love the lady!!!

    General CommentI fell in love with an addict. It's in my nature to try and repair the broken. Little did I know that I would become the broken one. He became addicted to me. For months I was his drug. He breathed me in and I was all he wanted. My friendships dwindled and soon all I had was him. Then one day without warning, he decided that I was no longer enough. He started needing drugs and bad crowds again. I tried desperately to hold on and gain back what we had, but he viewed it as me smothering him when all I was doing was trying to hold on. I thought we were worth the fight. In the end, I was just too easy to throw away. I wasn't "cool" enough because I didn't do drugs and I did not fit into his lifestyle. I never dealt with the end of our relationship. I just let go. Walked away. He let me go just like that. That was years ago and it still stings. I know he still thinks of me. He used to say that he could feel me thinking of him. I feel it too. Everytime we touched, there was a force of pulling that was so strong. We could not get close enough. We would sleep postively wrapped around each other and still need more. I still rememeber it so clearly. The attraction between our minds, bodies, and souls was electric. I think it was too much to handle at times. He couldn't handle it. We were young and not ready for it. It was truly once in a lifetime. Now, I am always a storm.
