Lyrics

You used to call me wicked (wicked)
I used to call you friend (friend)
They say your life is wild
Compared to what (compared to what)
Lifestyle (lifestyle)
You must have many things to remember (remember)
‘Cause nothing else in your life has really changed
Everything is almost like it was before
And I don’t want to do this anymore

When you lose your sight
(Love is like a river)
And there’s nothing to see
(Love is like a river)
She was just like me
(Love is like a river)
And suddenly the day comes

Some call it love
Some say they’re above that (above that)
Well, I believed in love
I called it worth it (worth it)

Some call me all the time
(Love is like a river)
Well, love is like a river
(Love is like a river)
And when you lose your sight
And suddenly the day comes

Oh…

Everything all around me is electric now
But I haven’t burned a candle in a real long time
And only when your heart says it’s over does it die
Well, love is like a river running
Straight back to the sea (straight back)

Some call it love
Some say they’re above it (above that)
Well, I believed in love
I called it worth it (worth it)

Well, some call me all the time (all the time)
(Love is like a river)
I say you can’t stay home and give up the fight
(Love is like a river)
I think you’re uptight, lady (uptight)
Ooh, out of sight
That’s just what I wanted to hear
Ooh, out of sight

You know you can’t stay home in the middle of the night
(Love is like a river)
You can’t say no in the middle of the night
(Love is like a river)
I think you’re uptight, lady (uptight)
Ooh, out of sight
And you can’t say no in the middle of the night
(Love is like a river)

Well, I think you’re uptight, lady, uptight, lady
Ooh, out of sight, out of sight, baby

  • 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 […]
