After the Glitter Fades

Album: Bella Donna (1981)
  • Well I never thought I'd make it
    Here in Hollywood
    I never thought I'd ever
    Want to stay
    What I seem to touch these days
    Has turned to gold
    What I seem to want
    Well you know I'll find a way

    For me it's the only life
    That I've ever known
    And love is only one
    Fine star away
    Even though the living
    Is sometimes laced with lies
    It's alright
    The feeling remains
    Even after the glitter fades

    The loneliness of a one night stand
    Is hard to take
    We all chase something
    And maybe this is a dream
    The timeless face of a rock and roll
    Woman while her heart breaks
    Oh you know the dream keeps coming
    Even when you forget to feel

    For me it's the only life
    That I've ever known
    And love is only one fine star away
    Even though the living
    Is sometimes laced with lies
    It's alright
    The feeling remains
    Even after the glitter fades

    For me it's the only life
    That I've ever known
    And love is only one fine star away
    Even though the living
    Is sometimes laced with lies
    It's alright
    The feeling remains
    Even after the glitter fades
    Oh you know the feeling remains
    Even after the glitter fades
    Oh the feeling remains
    Even after the glitter Writer/s: STEVIE NICKS
