"Everybody Finds Out" as written by and Nicks/nowels....
We see no change in sight
Watching her decline
She gets on a midnight plane
She's done it a thousand times

When love starts out in the darkness
It doesn't do well in the light
Affairs of the heart
That start out in the dark
Usually stay with the night

I know you don't agree
(Everyday you tell me)
I know you don't agree

I know he loves me
Everyday he calls me
He says he adores me
What can I say
You can't love him
You can't have him
I do have him, most of the time
Anywhere we can
Anytime we can
Get away, get away

Maybe it's just something else
That you can't tell me
Maybe it's in the way that you
Look away from me

It's not like any words
Need to be said
Well you always know when something's wrong,
My friend

I know you don't agree
(Everyday you tell me)
I know you don't agree

I know he loves me
Everyday he calls me
He says he adores me
What can I say
You can't love him
You can't have him
I do have him, most of the time
Anywhere we can
Anytime we can
Get away, get away

I know you don't agree
Well, I know you don't agree

You can't love him
You can't have him
I do have him, most of the time
Anywhere we can, baby
Anytime we can
Get away

We see no change in sight
Watching her decline
She gets on a midnight plane
She's done it a thousand times

When love starts out in the darkness
It doesn't do well in the light
Affairs of the heart
That start out in the dark
Usually stay with the night

When nobody sees them
At least, not together
She rarely goes out
She spends every day
Waiting for the day

When everybody finds out

Don't you know, don't you know

You can't love him
You can't have him
I do have him, most of the time
Anywhere we can
Anytime we can
Get away, get away

    General CommentI think the lyrics to this song would make for an obvious meaning. It sounds like an affair is taking place. Sounds like a married man has two women. One being his wife and another that swears that he loves her more than his wife yet he continues to be with his wife. "Affairs of the heart that start out in the dark usually stay with the night" sounds like a late night, secretive relationship.

    General CommentYou mean to say you didn't know what a homewrecker Stevie Nicks is?

    My InterpretationIt's a sort of argument between two women, a wife and a mistress, with the wife singing the neurotic chorus and the mistress singing the verses. Ultimately, the song shows the breakdown of both of them, the wife as she fears for losing her husband and the mistress as she fears for being discovered, as it sounds like she is the man's coworker, possibly even his boss.
