Little Lies – Fleetwood Mac

One of my favorite Fleetwood Mac songs. What’s unusual about it is that Christine McVie takes center stage, while Stevie Nicks does background vocals. Kinda makes sense, after all is Christine’s song. I have seen them live, at Madison Square Garden, on their “The Dance” tour, in 1997, with their most successful lineup: Mick Fleetwood, Lindsey Buchingham, Stevie Nicks, John McVie, Christine McVie.

A bit of trivia: the huge Santana success Black Magic Woman is a cover of a single released by Fleetwood Mac on their first album, way back in 1968.
Here is the clip. You be the judge which version sounds better. I like them both.

Lyrics:

If I could turn the page
In time then I’d rearrange just a day or two
Close my, close my, close my eyes

But I couldn’t find a way
So I’ll settle for one day to believe in you
Tell me, tell me, tell me lies

Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you can’t disguise
(You can’t disguise, no you can’t disguise)
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies

Although I’m not making plans
I hope that you understand there’s a reason why
Close your, close your, close your eyes

No more broken hearts
We’re better off apart let’s give it a try
Tell me, tell me, tell me lies

Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you can’t disguise
(You can’t disguise, no you can’t disguise)
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies

If I could turn the page
In time then I’d rearrange just a day or two
Close my, close my, close my eyes

But I couldn’t find a way
So I’ll settle for one day to believe in you
Tell me, tell me, tell me lies

Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you can’t disguise
(You can’t disguise, no you can’t disguise)

Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you can’t disguise
(You can’t disguise, no you can’t disguise)
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(Tell me, tell me lies)
