Sorrows
Apologies to Fleetwood Mac
Filk by NightStrife

I took my life, and it hid away.
Made them happy, and they let me stay.
But I saw hollow echoes in the eyes of the crowd,
And my sorrows turned me grey.

Oh, shadows of my past, what is peace?
Can my heart, forever veiled, find release?
Can I cling to the fadin' life I've made?
Can I refund the awful price I've paid?

I don't know.

I don't know.

Oh, I've tried hiding my past,
'Cause it burned my heart out of flight.
But time can reveal things, even
Though it can heal things,
So I'll hold my real wings tight.

Oh, I've tried hiding my past,
'Cause it burned my heart out of flight.
But time can reveal things, even
Though it can heal things,
So I'll hold my real wings tight.

Oh, I'll hold my real wings tight.

So, take my life, run away.
Make them happy, but I won't stay.
'Cause if you see hollow echoes in the eyes of the crowd,
Well, the sorrows will turn me grey.

And if you see hollow echoes in the eyes of the crowd,
Well, the sorrows will turn me grey.

The sorrows will turn me grey.

Landslide
By Fleetwood Mac

I took my love and I took it down.
Climbed a mountain and I turned around.
And I saw my reflection in the snow-covered hills,
'Til the landslide brought it down.

Oh, mirror in the sky: What is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changin' ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

I don't know.

I don't know.

Well I've been 'fraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you.
But time makes you bolder, even
Children get older,
And I'm getting older too.

Well I've been 'fraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you.
But time makes you bolder, even
Children get older,
And I'm getting older too.

Oh, I'm getting older too.

So, take my love, take it down.
Climb a mountain and turn around.
And if you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills,
Well, the landslide will bring it down.

And if you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills,
Well, the landslide will bring it down.

The landslide will bring it down.
