"Goodbye Baby" as written by and Nicks....
Don't take me to the tower
And take my child away
It was I who was
The hourglass
And the sands of time like
Shattering glass went past me
Like a tunnel to the sea

And I who went to sleep as two
Woke up as one now only you remain
You'll close your eyes and travel back
To the time when the light went fading fast
And the words you'll never, never forget, oh no
As you slipped away

Goodbye baby
I hope your heart's not broken
Don't forget me
Yes I was outspoken
You were with me all the time
I'll be with you one day

And I who went to sleep in tears
Woke up in tears, for all of the years
And I who never, never said goodbye
As I slipped away

Goodbye baby
I hope your heart's not broken
Don't forget me
Yes I was outspoken
You were with me all the time
I'll be with you one day

Goodbye baby
I hope your heart's not broken
Don't forget me
Yes I was outspoken
You were with me all the time
I'll be with you one day

Yes, I'll be with you one day

    General CommentI think if you hear this song, you gather it is deep. I think it is about an abortion, maybe not hers, or maybe hers... how could it NOT be about an abortion?

    General CommentYou're right GypsyDust. Stevie was pregnant around the same time as a friend of hers. This friend developed cancer during her pregnancy and instead of going through chemo to save her life but risk losing the baby, she decided to let the baby live and let the cancer take her. Stevie on the other hand felt that she was in no shape to be a mother so she had an abortion. To this day she still feels guilty about the situation and this song goes out to her unborn child.

    General CommentStevie was knocked-up by Don Henley of the Eagles (he's my idol ). The name of the baby was to have been " Sara ". Stevie's lifetime friend was Robin Snyder Anderson. The same week that " Bella Donna " reached #1 , Robin was diagnosed with terminal leukemia. The child's name IS Matthew. My favorite song is SARA by Fleetwood Mac. My best friend of 30 years is named "Sarah". She has moved to Arizona to begin her third battle with cancer. This song will keep me sane.... from breaking. The last time I saw her I washed her feet with Holy water. We made our peace, said our goodbyes. I told her that if this was the last time I see her, that I am truly very sorry if I ever hurt her. She said "No, you have never hurt me ".
