Fleetwood Mac – Sara lyrics

Wait a minute baby, stay with me a while
Said you'd give me light but you never told me about the fire

Drowning in the sea of love where everyone would love to drown
But now it's gone, it doesn't matter what for
When you build your house then call me, 'Home"

And he was just like a great dark wing, within the wings of a storm
I think I had met my match, he was singing and undoing and undoing the laces, undoing the laces

Said, "Sara, you're the poet in my heart, never change, never stop"
But now it's gone, it doesn't matter what for
But when you build your house, well then call me, "Home"

Hold on, the night is coming and the starling flew for days
I'd stay at home at night all the time
I'd go anywhere, anywhere, anywhere
Ask me and I'll be, ask me and I'll be, 'cause I care

In the sea of love where everyone would love to drown
But now it's gone, they say, "It doesn't matter anymore"
If you build your house then please call me, "Home"
Sara, you're the poet in my heart, never change and don't you ever stop
Now it's gone, no, it doesn't matter anymore
When you build your house, I'll come by (Now it's gone, (Sara), now it's gone, now it's gone, (Sara), now it's gone)
(Crazy, well, but there's a heartbeat that never really died, they said, it never really died, (Sara))
(Oh would you swallow all your pride, would you speak a little louder (Sara))
(Singing, "All I ever wanted was to know that you were dreaming")

    Sara is about a child Stevie Nicks conceived with Don Henley. She said she would have named her Sara if she had not aborted the child, and it was a girl. If you look at the words, it's clear what the song is about. "Wait a minute, baby, stay with me awhile"
    "All I ever wanted
    Was to know that you were dreaming
    (There's a heartbeat
    And it never really died)"

    There's a very good documentary called don't stop that's well worth watching. Sara is stevie nicks' friend who fell in love with the drummer whilst he was going out with stevie. The song is about the love triangle between nicks, fleetwood and sara recor who would eventually become fleetwood's wife. In the extended version of the song it is about all of the tangled relationships with nicks and her band members.
