Fleetwood Mac – Landslide lyrics

[Verse 1]
I took my love and I took it down
I climbed a mountain and I turned around
And 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?
I don't know

[Chorus 2x]
Well, I've been afraid of changing
Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
I'm getting older too

[Verse 2]
So, take this love, take it down
Oh if you climb a mountain and you turn around
If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well the landslide will bring you down, down
And If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well maybe, the landslide will bring you down
Well well, the landslide will bring you down

    I absolutely adore this song. I think she really put all the emotions and built up feelings into this song. Glee Cast did an amazing cover to this song, but I feel that they just can't get the emotion and the same feel as the orginal.
    To me, this song talks about how she loves this person but can't, or is afraid, to let them go for whatever reason is forcing them to part. I think you can really tell that this relationship has been alive for many years and is now ending so abruptly. There's just something so sad about this song, yet something so beautiful and joyous. I think that's why I love it so much :) it's very rare to feel those two emtions in a song.
    Overall, just simply beautiful.
