"Landslide (Fleetwood Mac cover)" as written by and Stevie Nicks....
I took my love and took it down
I climbed a mountain, I turned around
And I saw my reflection in a snow covered hill
'Til a landslide brought it down

Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

Well, I've been afraid of changing cause I've
Built my life around you
Time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I'm getting older, too
I'm getting older, too

I took my love and took it down
I climbed a mountain, I turned around
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hill
The landslide brought it down
The landslide brought it down

    General CommentHere's my interpretation of this song...

    I took my love and took it down
    >>I tried to love but it didn’t work out.
    I climbed a mountain, I turned around
    >>I experienced something new, and left it with knowledge.
    And I saw my reflection in a snow covered hill
    >>I thought I was seeing who I really was.
    'til a landslide brought it down
    >>But the experience taught me that I don’t even know myself yet.

    Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
    >>How do I know what love is?
    Can the child within my heart rise above?
    >>Can I find the “real me”?
    Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
    >>Am I going to survive such a dramatic change in my life?
    Can I handle the seasons of my life?
    >>Will I be able to handle more of this later in life?

    Well, I've been afraid of changing cause I've
    Built my life around you
    >>I’m afraid to move on because I’m so used to you.
    Time makes you bolder
    >>But the experience made me stronger.
    Even children get older
    >>Everyone get’s wiser.
    And I'm getting older, too
    I'm getting older, too
    >>I’m getting wiser, too.

    I took my love and took it down
    >>I tried to love but it didn’t work out.
    I climbed a mountain, I turned around
    >>I experienced something new, and left it with knowledge.
    And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hill
    >>And if you think you still know me…
    The landslide brought it down
    The landslide brought it down
    >>You’re wrong.


    By the way, this is my favorite cover of this song.

    General CommentSomehow I think that this song would have fitted in the movie "Eternal Sunshine on the Spotless Mind".

    General CommentAwesome remake. I think it tops Stevie Nicks version. Billy puts more emotion into the lyrics.

    General Commentit's a great remake, but only stevie can sing it like stevie. this should have been our prom song but we had some journey song instead. great lyrics and great acoustic guitar always mean a great song. no exception here.
