“Blue Denim” is Track 1 on Street Angel. It was written about Lindsey Buckingham.

“‘Blue Denim’ was probably written about Lindsey’s blue eyes because he’s the only person I know that’s got the real blue denim eyes. So it must have been for Lindsey.” (Crystal Visions…The Very Best of Stevie Nicks, 2007)

“Blue Denim” was the second single from Street Angel, following “Maybe Love Will Change Your Mind.” The U.S. cassette single included the bonus track “Mirror Mirror,” an outtake from Rock a Little.

Lyrics

Saw him the other day
Saw him again yesterday
I wonder if I’ll ever see him again
He reminded me of blue denim

Blue-gray eyes
They change with the color
Change with the sun
They run with the sight
Change with the wind
But they’re always bright
Bright eyes, blue denim
Bright eyes, blue denim

I knew him another way
I knew him another day
In some ways he’d forgotten me
In many ways he got to me
I turned away so he couldn’t see
I turned away it could never be
I never thought he would walk away
But I lost him again yesterday

Blue-gray eyes
They change with the color
Change with the sun
They run with the sight
Change with the wind
But they’re always bright
Bright eyes, blue denim
Bright eyes, blue denim

Understanding me
Understanding you
Is not an easy thing to do
Understanding me
And understanding you
Is not an easy thing to do

And I will never forget
The last time I saw you
Like a photograph so rare
Like a painting
No I will never forget
The last time I saw you
Never to be
Not you, not me
No, no

Blue-gray eyes
They change with the color
Change with the sun
They run with the sight
Change with the wind
But they’re always bright
Bright eyes, blue denim
Bright eyes, blue denim

So I’m going away for a little while
To remember how to feel
And if I find the answer I promise you
I’ll come back and get you

Well, yes, I’m going away for a little while
To remember how to feel
And if I find the answer I promise you
I’ll come back and get you

Well, if I find the answer I promise you
I’ll come back and get you
I’ll come back and get you
Well, I’ll come back and get you

  • REVIEW: Fleetwood Mac at Rod Laver Arena Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    Given the well-documented dramas they’ve endured over the decades, you assumed by now Fleetwood Mac were pretty much invincible. However reuniting that classic Rumours-era line-up back for the 2014/2015 tour proved they had one more soap opera-style twist up their billowing sleeves. So in 2019, it’s either this Lindsey Buckingham-free version of Fleetwood Mac or […]
  • Fleetwood Frankenband a beautiful monster Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    FLEETWOOD MAC ★★★★ Rod Laver Arena, until September 9 Eighteen months ago, it seemed positively absurd that someone like Neil Finn – a well known musician and songwriter in his own right who had by no means put his feet up – could, or even would, join a band like Fleetwood Mac. Perhaps it still […]
  • Another Rumours deluxe set coming this fall Friday, August 23, 2019
    Rhino/Warner Bros. Records will be reissuing another deluxe edition of Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 album Rumours to coincide with the band’s remaining 2019 North American tour dates. The latest 4CD package, out October 25, compiles tracks from the previously released 2004 and 2013 reissues of the album. The package is a slimmed-down version of the 6-disc […]
  • Fleetwood Mac: Still going their own way Thursday, August 22, 2019
    Since it began as a British rock band in 1967, Fleetwood Mac has undergone 19 iterations while steadily adding Americans and, most recently, a New Zealander to its line-up. Its only remaining founding member is drummer Mick Fleetwood, who recently described each version of the group as “incredibly different musical episodes in this Shakespearean play […]
  • Seeing Fleetwood Mac in 2019 is a strange experience — but they’ve always been a strange band Wednesday, August 21, 2019
    If their songs weren’t so strong, endurance may be Fleetwood Mac’s greatest legacy Thirty minutes into Fleetwood Mac’s set at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre this week, Stevie Nicks admitted that she didn’t realise “Black Magic Woman” was a Fleetwood Mac song until well after she’d joined the band. It’s an astounding admission. Sure, the song […]
