"Sara (Unedited Version)" as written by and Stevie Nicks....
Wait a minute baby
Stay with me awhile
Said you'd give me light
But you never told me about the fire

Drowning in the sea of love
Where everyone would love to drown
But now it's gone
It doesn't matter what for
When you build your house
Then call me home

And he was just like a great dark wing
Within the wings of a storm
I think I had met my match, he was singing
And undoing, and undoing the laces
Undoing the laces

Said Sara, you're the poet in my heart
Never change, never stop
But now it's gone
It doesn't matter what for
But when you build your house
Then call me home

Hold on
The night is coming and the starling flew for days
I'd stay home at night, all the time
I'd go anywhere, anywhere, anywhere
Ask me and I'm there, yeah
Ask me and I'm there, I care

In the sea of love
Where everyone would love to drown
But now it's gone
They say it doesn't matter anymore
When you build your house
Then please call me home

Sara, you're the poet in my heart
Never change, and don't you ever stop
Now it's gone
No it doesn't matter anymore
When you build your house
I'll come by

Sara
Sara

    My InterpretationThe first and second verse is about one night Stevie and Mick slept together in which much to Stevie’s surprise, had the kind of sparks most only dream of having, including Stevie’s friend, Sara, whom had a crush on Mick. Because their affair was secret, the only time they could meet was at night, so Stevie would stay home and wait for Mick’s call to meet him somewhere the rest of the band wasn’t. She’s the starling who would literally fly anywhere to be with him, which were random places as he may have been married at the time as well. (When you build your house, call me home.) The bird references are throughout as she is the starling, he is the great dark wing she found comfort in and the laces he undoes are on her boots he’s taking off. The wings of the storm were Stevie and Lindsey breaking up along with Christine and John divorcing. Knowing nothing could ever come of their affair, they ended it. Mick was then free to pursue Sara and visa versa. (Said) Sara, you’re the poet in my heart is Sara and Mick proclaiming their love for each other in their eventual marriage. There’s a heartbeat and it never really died means in spite of everything, the love was still there between Stevie and Mick because it never ran it’s course and faded out, they had to end it because their band was more important. The implication is they would be together otherwise.
