In the voice of Stevie Nicks I feel young
And I become confused.
Listening back to Fleetwood Mac
And listen back to careful thoughts of you.

I don't want to lose your friendship now,
And I've been feeling insecure.
Maybe we just need some time apart;
Everbody does for sure.
Can you see how I tried to make you smile?

I've always known that I can't change my past,
But didnt know that I changed for the best.
Your responsible for what happens to you now;
The choice of what comes next.

So I'm not gonna say I've failed us both.
I never thought that way of you.
Maybe we just need some time apart;
And I dont know what else to do.
Was it wrong how I tried to make you mine?

My ears ring with that one line she sings in landslide now.
Its never been so true.
I have been afraid of change
Because I built my life around you.

I dont want to lose your friendship now,
But I've been feeling insecure.
Maybe we just need some time apart;
Everybody does for sure.
Can you see how I tried to make you smile?
