I haven’t made a cent on any of the videos I posted on YT. That goes to someone else. Like the artist, record company or YT/Google.
If you don’t like ads. Well, just “google” how to not let google put them in your face OK? 😉

Music & Lyrics S. Nicks.

(Lyrics from Stevies website)
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 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
But time makes you get bolder
Even children get older
And 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 the landslide will bring it down.

Songfacts:
Nicks has said that she wrote this song while she was contemplating going back to school or continuing on with guitarist Lindsey Buckingham.
Buckingham/Nicks had been dropped by Polydor Records and she and Buckingham were not getting along.
She wrote the song while visiting Aspen, Colorado, sitting in someone’s living room “looking out at the Rocky Mountains pondering the avalanche of everything that had come crashing down on us … at that moment, my life truly felt like a landslide in many ways”

  1. Why does this song make me cry? There is nothing here to relate sadness, like a passed away family member, or even a memory. The song itself is just so sad to me. Maybe i’m a depressing person.

  2. The reflection in the snow covered hills is the mirror the mountain of coke was on. The landslide brings everyone down. Mirror in the sky was a mirror over the bed.

  3. Children get older I'm getting older too.
    I'm riding the bus, it's cold, dark skies, and raining.
    I'm not a mom, but that line struck a chord. I'm the oldest of my siblings,and I've seen them grow up. Gosh! Now I'm balling on my way to work.

  4. This is performance at it's best. 43 years with my babe. We've walked amongst the stars. Our goal, leave this world better than we found it. Politicians have destroyed that dream. We leave to our grandchildren and great grandchildren the legacy of our love. It's the one thing politics can't corrupt. Love the music my children.

  5. I love you Ashley Nichole Terry I know you remember this song. When you were a baby I danced with you in my arms. God gave me you and I thank god everyday for you and I know you are you are going to get easier put god first and then rest will come. Don't let another day go by. I love and believe in you and so does your father God bless you with one special angel just do it Con
