Album: Fleetwood Mac (1975)

Songfacts®:

  • This was written by Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. He and his girlfriend at the time Stevie Nicks were recording as the duo Buckingham-Nicks and had released one album when they were asked to join Fleetwood Mac. This song was written for a second Buckingham-Nicks album, but when they joined Fleetwood Mac they brought this with them along with "Landslide" and "Rhiannon." These songs helped make Fleetwood Mac a force in the pop music world and establish a strong radio presence for the band.
  • The song is about a guy who is really into a girl, but just can't get her to commit.
