“Dear Me” – “Silver Springs” – Dedication

… this post is dedicated to the definition of insanity, the efforts expended for searching, and the realization that things never resolve …

“Dear Me” – “Silver Springs” – Death

… My mother, Noreen A. Whalen, passed away on December 20, 2011 …

… I can write that date without a blink of an eye or a second thought …

… I just can’t write anything further about my mom …

… My father, John B. Whalen, passed away on January 23, 2004 …

… I can write that date without a blink of an eye or a second thought …

… I just can’t write anything further about my dad …

… in my line of work, I deal with loss and dying and death on a daily basis …

… people cope with loss in different ways …

… some write about it …

… some think about it …

… some bury it …

… some ignore it …

… anger … depression … bargaining … denial …

… however … “it” never goes away …

… “it” never gets easier … “it” is always there …

… and your life is changed forever …

“Dear Me” – “Silver Springs” – Life

… but before all of all of this …

… we have to deal with life …

… in a way, formulating the “it” …

… that will never go away …

… I’d like to think that we do our best …

… I’d like to think that things work out …

… I’d like to think that our dreams are realized …

… and I wonder …

… about how things could have been …

… and how they should have resolved …

Dear Me” – “Silver Springs” – Note

Written by Stevie Nicks, “Silver Springs” was about Lindsey [Buckingham].

And we were in Maryland somewhere driving under a freeway sign that said Silver Spring, Maryland.

And I loved the name … Silver Springs sounded like a pretty fabulous place to me

And, ‘You could be my silver springs…’, that’s just a whole symbolic thing of what you could have been to me.

By 1997, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham’s romance should have been ancient history. The pair had split two decades prior, fueling Rumours’ famously raw breakup anthems. But during a taping of a Fleetwood Mac reunion show later released as The Dance, shit once again got very real

Midway through a non-album rarity called “Silver Springs,” Nicks turned and faced her former flame as she sang the song’s rueful bridge:

“Time cast a spell on you, but you won’t forget me/I know I could have loved you but you would not let me.”

The pair locked eyes, and Nicks gradually built to a cathartic howl –

“I’ll follow you down ’til the sound of my voice will haunt you/You’ll never get away from the sound of the woman that loves you”

indicating that, for her at least, resolution had never really come.

Dear Me” – “Silver Springs” – Video

You could be my silver springs
Blue green colors flashin’
I would be your only dream
Your shining autumn, ocean crashing

And did you say she was pretty
And did you say that she loves you
Baby, I don’t wanna know

I’ll begin not to love you
Turn around, see me runnin’
I’ll say I loved you years ago
Tell myself you never loved me, no

And did you say she was pretty
And did you say that she loves you
Baby, I don’t wanna know
Oh, no
And can you tell me was it worth it
Really, I don’t wanna know

Time casts a spell on you, but you won’t forget me
I know I could have loved you, but you would not let me

Time casts a spell on you, but you won’t forget me
I know I could have loved you, but you would not let me
I’ll follow you down til’ the sound of my voice will haunt you
You’ll never get away from the sound of the woman that loves you
I’ll follow you down til’ the sound of my voice will haunt you
Stevie oversings: Was I just a fool?
You’ll never get away from the sound of the woman that loves you
Stevie oversings: Was I just a fool?
I’ll follow you down til’ the sound of my voice will haunt you
Stevie oversings: Give me just a chance


You’ll never get away from the sound of the woman that loves you
You could be my silver springs
My blue green colors flashin’
