Written by Stevie Nicks.


No one looked as I walked by
Just an invitation would have been just fine
Said no to him again and again
First he took my heart then he ran

No one knows how I feel
What I say unless you read between my lines
One man walked away from me
First he took my hand take me home

Stand back stand back
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
It's alright it's alright
To be standing in a line
Standing in a line
I would cry

Do not turn away my friend
Like a willow I can bend
No man calls my name
No man came

So I walked on down away from you
Maybe your attention was more
Than you could do
One man did not call
He asked me for my love
And that was all

Stand back stand back
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
It's alright it's alright
To be standing in a line
Standing in a line
Standing in a line

So I walked on down the line
Away from you
Maybe your attention was more
Than I could do
One man did not call
Well he asked me for my love
That was all

Give me a little bit a sympathy
Give me a little bit a sympathy where is a little bit a sympathy
Well i've been standing here (Stand Back)
Well i've been standing here ( Stand Back)
Wont you just take me home
Wont you taaakkkeee me home
I need a little bit a sympathy
Well,Well,Well I'll be waiting here
Stand Back!!

    Stevie nicks lyrics were very abstract. This song is about unrequited love in only the way stevie nicks can say it. A girl liked a guy who ignored her, then she didn't like him anymore, but still yearned for him and wanted a hook-up. Silly lyrics, but a great song with great instrumentation.
