Once again she steals away
Then she reaches out to kiss me
And how she takes my breath away
Pretending that she won't miss me

Oohh I would bleed to love her
Bleed to love her
Oohh I would bleed to love her

And once again she calls to me
Then she vanishes in thin air
And how she takes my breath away
Pretending that she's not there

Oohh I would bleed to love her
Bleed to love her
Oohh I would bleed to love her

Somebody's got to see this through
All the world is laughing at you
Somebody's got to sacrifice
If this whole thing's going to turn out right

Oohh I would bleed to love her
Bleed to love her
Oohh I would bleed to love her

Agree.  They were great in concert.

Fleetwood Mac went through many incarnations and varying levels of success before Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks joined the band in late 1974. Lindsey and Stevie brought their distinct singing harmony as well as song writing experience plus Buckingham’s music and recording studio talents from their experience as the duo, Buckingham Nicks. Listen to their album from 1973 and you’ll hear the familiar sounds of Fleetwood Mac that most people identify with today.

The vocal harmonies between the Nicks/Buckingham and Christine McVie worked well and along with Christine’s classically trained music talents, these three formed the “sound” and lyrical foundation of the Fleetwood Mac that has sold over 100 million records.

Listen to any Fleetwood Mac album before 1974 and you will not hear the same music or style that most people identify with Fleetwood Mac today.


I once owned this album (who didn't?)   But I swear I don't remember this at all. Thank you RP.

Whilst I would agree with the second part of your sentence, the first part is plain wrong.

LB always went his own way, before, during and after his time with FM, and FM have always been a whole lot more than any individual band member, even in the early 'Green God' days. They, and others such as Christine, Danny, Stevie, and Bob (Welch), are constellations whose separate paths through the musical universe intersected for a while and shone extra brightly. And yes, there were a few stellar collisions!
Good tune, though by and large, I don't like hearing about bleeding in songs.

I love this song so much. Despite myself. <3
This album cover is an homage to the mid-seventies Rumours album cover.

I love it. A cover that is carefully produced and had obviously been given a lot of time and thought to create. A bit of humour, pathos, personality, art, composition. . . what's not to like?
I totally concur.  Nothing better than this: https://youtu.be/mZZp76M4NGc

Mick still seems proud of those Clackers.
can't help but love this - that guitar is so precise

Yes to the Samples!


Now that's just plain funny!! Never noticed the balls before.

 

HeHe hilarious{#Clap}{#Roflol}{#Clap}
simply embarrassing - they´d better stopped making music when their time was over. instead, they are hurting their reputation with musical zero-point-zero´s like this one ...
Now for sum Jefferson Airplane - eh!

2nd FM tune in a couple of hours.  Not complaining just struck me as odd.

Couldn't agree more! So underrated.

It is pretty silly; I guess they were just trying to have fun and re-live the old days, but without the dump-trucks full of cocaine.

Maybe it's just you. 
Yes Lindsey.
Give me a break?? this stinks.

Lindsey said that the bleeding line can best be described as "an element of having to sacrifice your blood in order to get back what is sometimes worthwhile." This line has a very noble, romantic feel to it, sacrificing your "blood" to protect a love you have with someone.

Interesting, but the bleeding still bothers me.  That said, it's a fine song, and Lindsey rules.

Mick's balls are hanging a little lower with old age (and Stevie's fallen and she can't get up).

Yeah!  I can't stop watching his version of 'Big Love' from this album.  I still can't figure out how he does that, and sings...


these khats still give me chills. If that's not an 8 then its a 9
This song should have been all over commercial radio and I did not hear it, not once, until RP.  Radio is Dead.  Long live Radio Paradise.


This song is very, very good for the ears...


He is such a great songwriter, I more ofter than not could care less what the heck he is singing about- I just sing along

I love the song, but the lyrics are kind of creepy.

Unless he's volunteering to be a sacrifice to some very sadistic goddess, in which case it all makes sense.

Incredible guitarist!  LOVED watching him in concert.  He has the energy of a 30-year old!

 I may not have chosen "Tusk" as my one FM song to have on a desert island but I do like this one pretty well.
Can anyone explain the knee breeches to me?  I never got that.
