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?

Mmm Mmm...

Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older
I'm getting older too



(Gutiar solo)

Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I, I built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older
I'm getting older too
I'm getting older too

So, take my love, take it down
Oh climb a mountain and 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 it down
Oh oh, the landslide will bring it down

    Landslide reminds me of watching my children grow older, while i grow older as well, and that someday when they are my age, i will be gone. It is a beautiful song.

    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.

    She wrote the song about her dad. Stevie Nicks even said in an interview that she wrote it about her father and how she build her life around him growing up.
