GIRL'S GONE CHILD
Monday, September 13, 2010
Fleetwood Mac's Landslide has been my favorite song since 8th grade when I had the words "I've been afraid of changin' cause I built my life around you/But time makes you bolder, children get older, I'm getting older, too." written on the insert of my school binder - in reference to the boy I loved since I was seven. It sounds funny, even ridiculous to think that those words helped alleviate some of the pain I was going through in those days, wrestling the demons of unrequited love...
I used to think Landslide was about moving on from a broken heart. These days I hear the song a little differently.
