Belle Fleur

Mountain women
Living in the canyon
Canyon dancing
All night long
They form a circle
Hand in hand
Are you with me lady stranger
His voice rings
Are you looking for a man
Will you dance with me
Will you dance with me, baby
Whoa, oh, oh
It’s only love
It’s just love
Will you dance with me
Ooh, ooh
Belle flower
Verse
This is no ticket for dreamland
A garden for fevers to grow in
As I run through the door of the long black car
Belle
Will you dance with me
Will you dance with me, baby
Oh, oh
It’s only love
It’s just love
Will you dance with me
Belle
Ooh
Belle flower
Will you dance with me
And the days go by
So do I
Sunset sound
Sunrise
Sing to me
A lullaby
Sing to me
Of the daytime
I will sing you a story of moonlight
Oh, whoa
Will you dance with me
Will you dance with me, baby
Oh, whoa, oh
It’s only love
It’s just love
Will you dance with me, baby
And the days go by
So do I
Sunset sound
Sing me a sunrise
I will sing to you
Of the nighttime
Sing to me
A lullaby
I will sing you a story of moonlight
Sorry
Will you dance with me, baby
Oh, oh
Will you dance with me
It’s only love
It’s just love
Ooh
Belle flower

About the Song

“Belle Fleur” is a track from 24 Karat Gold — Songs from the Vault (2014), Stevie Nicks’ eighth solo album. A 15-second preview of the song was released to Stevie Nicks’ official social media sites on Tuesday, August 19, 2014.

The song dates back to a 1980 demo that Nicks rehearsed for Bella Donna (1981), her first solo album. The title is French for “beautiful flower.”

“‘Belle Fleur’ was about not being able to have a relationship because you were a rock ‘n’ roll star. Those women are me, [my sister]Lori … and friends I had from 1975 to 1978. The [lyric]“When you come to the door of the long black car” — that’s the limousine that’s coming to take you away. Then your boyfriend is standing on the porch waving at you, like, “When are you going to be back?” And you’re like, “I don’t know, maybe three months?” But then we would add shows to a tour and I could end up not being back for six months. It was difficult for the men in my life. I lived that song so many times.” (Iannaci, 2015)
