Landslide Lyrics

Tom and I DJ’d a graduation party past night at the Monroe Civic Center. The graduating student was Indian, and so was the party. Relatives and friends of the graduate were there from all over Louisiana and from as far away as India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. The food was a rich spread of many classic Indian dishes. The music Indian, the dancing was spirited, and the women and girls were dressed in beautiful saris. I’d have to say that this was a truly enriching cultural experience for me.
After I returned home from the DJ gig, I was a little introspective. Perhaps not due to sadness, but only because I’m tired from working so hard lately. I was thinking of a song Johnny O’Neal often did when we performed together, “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac and sung so, so well by Stevie Nicks. Anyway, since I’ve determined to post the lyrics of songs I like each week, I thought I thought I’d post this one. I found the lyrics here:

I took my love, I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
till the landslide brought me down

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

Well, Ive been afraid of changing
cause Ive built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older
I’m getting older too

Oh, take my love, take it down
Climb a mountain and turn around
If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well the landslide will bring it down

If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well maybe the landslide will bring it down
