Song Lyric Sunday: Crystal Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac

When I was a jaded woman in my mid-twenties something magical happened. The instant I saw him smile with his eyes and his lips, I fell in love. Yes, cynical me, love at first sight. We saw each other off & on over the next 6 months. I finally decided I would tell him on his birthday how I felt. I made him a book with some of my photography, my poetry and the words to Fleetwood Mac’s “Crystal.” The song reflected my circumstances: first initial feeling, I went from the shores of the Atlantic through the mountains to the Pacific Ocean. To my destiny; to my fate.

Crystal was a featured song in the movie, “Practical Magic.” This is the official Crystal video for the film. A solo Stevie Nicks’ voice has a harder edge in 1998 than when the song was first recorded by Fleetwood Mac in 1975.

Do you always trust your first initial feeling
Special knowledge holds true, bear believing

I turned around and the water was closing all around like a glove
Like the love that finally found me.
Then I knew in the crystalline knowledge of you

Drove me through the mountains
Through the crystal like and clear water fountain
Drove me like a magnet
To the sea
To the sea

How the faces of love have changed turning the pages
And I have changed, oh, but you, you remain ageless

I turned around and the water was closing all around like a glove
Like the love that finally found me.
Then I knew in the crystalline knowledge of you
Drove me though the mountains
Through the crystal like and clear water fountain
Drove me like a magnet
To the sea
To the sea

Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks, Crystal
