  • Somewhere out in the back of your mind
    Comes your real life and the life that you know
    It seems like it was the creation of some of those same old things
    It seemed to be the only thing left out in the light
    She had trusted many
    But been unfamiliar with
    Almost everyone but you

    Well maybe I'm just thinking that the rooms are all on fire
    Everytime that you walk in the room
    Well there is magic all around you, if I do say so myself
    I have known this much longer than I've known you

    She had trusted many
    And then there would be someone who would enter into her presence
    That she could sense for miles
    She dreamed of her wanton luxury
    And she laughed and she cried and she tried to taunt him
    And he hated to be separated
    From that picture No

    Well maybe I'm just thinking that the rooms are all on fire
    Everytime that you walk in the room
    Ooh, well there is magic all around you, if I do say so myself
    Well I have known this much longer than I've known you

    Long nets of white cloud my memory
    Long nets of white cloud my memory
    Ooh there is magic all around you
    Everytime you walk in the room

    Well maybe I'm just thinking that the rooms are all on fire
    Everytime that you walk in the room
    Well there is magic all around you, if I do say so myself
    Well I have known this much longer than I've known you

  • Angela from MnDoes anyone know who played her love interest in the video? He looks so familiar.
  • Michael from London, United KingdomThis was Stevie's only major UK hit. It got loads of airplay and she made several TV appearances. Sadly, it was also around the time of her last solo UK tour.
  • Christopher L. from Fort Worth, TxI've always been a Stevie fan including her years with Fleetwood Mac...I don't however care for that bitch Christine Mcvie.
  • Lynsey from St Helens, United KingdomI love this song by Stevie Nicks its my favourite song of all time, I love the music and words it reminds me off walking into a crowded room and meeting him from across the room and you feel that you know this person even though you have never met.
