Lindsey Buckingham

Blue Denim

1993 Version

1994 Album Version

“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
