Landslide
Fleetwood Mac Lyrics


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

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

Well, I've been 'fraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I'm gettin' older, too

Well, I've been 'fraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I'm gettin' older, too
I'm gettin' older, too

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

[Verse 1]
I took my love, took it down
I climbed a mountain, and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow-covered hills
'Til the landslide brought me down

[Verse 2]
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?
Hmm-hmm, hmm-hmm
[Chorus]
Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder, even children get older
And I'm getting older too

[Guitar Solo]

[Chorus]
Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder, even children get older
And I'm getting older too
Oh, I'm getting older too

[Verse 3]
I take my love, take it down
Ah, climb a mountain and turn around
And If you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills
Well, the landslide will bring you down

[Outro]
And If you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills
Well, the landslide will bring you down
Oh, the landslide will bring it down



Gabriel Jean-Batiste

This song helped me get through many tough times when I was younger. It's also a song I'd listen to on repeat during the worst periods of my mental health. It's not an easy song to listen to. It dredges up old memories & seems to make my current worries feel even weightier.

Namely, my chief concern now: I've hurt so many others. Very few were intentional; even fewer I was actively aware of, even for years. But I was still the sole culprit.

These are people whom I love so much, and literally few days pass without me thinking about at least one of them. I miss them so damn much. I've never stopped loving them or thinking about them.

Yet I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to fix what I unintentionally broke, but have left tattered for so many years because of my own shame, sadness, inertia...also the question of if I really deserve to feel better & have these people in my life again.

Yeah yeah, I've been to therapy for nearly 2 decades now & I know what a therapist would say in response to the last bit. But sometimes it really feels as if there are some misdeeds of your own that cause you to react with a simultaneous & visceral anger, melancholy, depression that—maybe, just maybe—there's no adequate penance.

So, Stevie, I'm still journeying. Despite what I wrote above, the journey has been mostly great. I've lived a sometimes wondrous life, but damn, those sometimes continue to pay dividends. And though I'm currently on an unwelcome detour & feel rudderless trying to make sense of the above bits, I'm forever adamant that there's always hope.

I wish you peace, Stevie. 💙

Im a 58 year old husband, father and grandfather. I sold my guitar 30 years ago when I became bored with my mediocrity as a player.
My youngest daughter's wedding is on the horizon. I bought a new guitar a few weeks ago and have been practising this song many hours a week.
I WILL perform this song for my daughter on her wedding day. Absolutely.

You know this song is about recovering from grief? It's about having this perfect world and then everything comes crashing down. It's about being in love with someone and losing them (the landslide). But you grow older, you recover and you change. This is not a Wedding song.

Diana Albers

when it comes from the heart it will all be fine!

Machine Green-- reading this brought tears in my eyes. I'm a daughter who just got married and I'm also a mediocre guitar player... your daughter is so blessed that you've picked the guitar back up and put time into learning this beautiful song. I hope it goes well with you and that playing guitar for your daughter brings you the kind of joy that only some people find. Keep going and keep playing! God bless you
