"Dreams (ft Stevie Nicks)" as written by and Stevie Nicks....
Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well who am I to keep you down?
It's only right that you should
Play it the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound of your loneliness
Like a heartbeat, drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost
And what you had
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
Say, women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you'll know
You will know, you will know, you will know, you'll know

Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself
It's only me who wants to wrap around your dreams and
Have you any dreams you'd like to sell?
Dreams of loneliness
Like a heartbeat, drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost
What you had
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
Say, women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you'll know
You will know, you will know, you'll know, you will know
You will know, you will know, you will know

    General CommentNow here you go again
    You say you want your freedom
    Well who am I to keep you down?
    [implying that the male is bored of what they have, and is missing messing around with women.]
    It's only right that you should
    Play the way you feel it
    [she isn't holding him back from anything, obviously she loves him and lets him be him.]
    But listen carefully to the sound
    of your loneliness
    [when he splits with her, he realizes how much she really meant to him.]
    Like a heartbeat drives you mad
    In the stillness of the memory
    of what you had
    And what you lost.


    the rest is self explanatory.

    Song MeaningThe song seems pretty simple on the surface... one of those 'you don't know what you've got till it's gone' kind of relationship songs.

    But look deeper.

    The heartbeat.... represented by the repeating pattern in the bass...
    "The heartbeat drives you mad in the stillness of remembering what you had and what you lost...

    I think it is about having an abortion.

    Only Stevie knows.
