Go your own way / As long as you follow / Don't you wanna talk about it

Performed by British band Fleetwood Mac, with band members Mick Fleetwood (on drums), John & Christine McVie, and a California couple, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks that joined the band in the US in 1975.

First single the band released off their biggest selling album "Rumours" (40 million albums sold).

A song about relationship breakdown,

a song about stress, and postmodern meaninglessness

and also a flashback to Paul McCartney's 1970 song just after another British band's relationship breakdown.

Regardless of what we say, we're all human.

"I very much resented him telling the world that 'packing up, shacking up' with different men was all I wanted to do," Stevie Nicks later told Rolling Stone. "He knew it wasn't true. It was just an angry thing that he said. Every time those words would come onstage, I wanted to go over and kill him. He knew it, so he really pushed my buttons through that. It was like, 'I'll make you suffer for leaving me.' And I did."
Little wonder that she joined him enthusiastically to sing "You can go your own way" on the chorus.


"As Long As You Follow" (1988)
Songwriters: McVie, Christine / Mendonca, Eddy Quintela

and performed by British band Fleetwood Mac, with band members Mick Fleetwood (on drums), John & Christine McVie, and Rick Vito, Billy Burnette and Stevie Nicks

perhaps seen by many as their last biggest hit.

I've been searching
For a pot of gold
Like the kind you find
At the end of the rainbow

I've been dreaming
Thought it was in vain
Ah, But now you're here
Can't believe that you're back again

Now I know I can't lose
As long as you follow
I'm gonna win
I'm gonna beg, steal, or borrow
As Long as you follow

I've been wandering
Gone away too far
But the road was rough
To get back where you are

And the sun went down
Never seem to rise
Ah, but now you're here
With the light shining in your eyes

Now I know I can't lose
As long as you follow
I'm gonna win
I'm gonna beg, steal, or borrow

Yes, I can live today
If you give me tomorrow
As long as you follow

Now I know I can't lose
As long as you follow
I'm gonna win
I'm gonna beg, steal, or borrow

Yes, I can live today
If you give me tomorrow
As long as you follow

"Don't you wanna talk about it" (1985) - Larry Norman

Reference is to Proverbs 27:6.

True and faithful are the wounds of a friend
Who keeps on praying that this war will end
My heart is broken and I need it to mend
Don't you wanna talk about it?

You're drinking water from a bitter well,
Down on the beach, I see these broken shells
Paradise is falling, I'm surprised you can't tell
Don't you wanna talk about it?

A line is drawn (the fear of death)
A bridge is crossed (the savoire-faire)
A friend is gone (the ratty breath)
But is not lost (the falling hair)
I watch the sky (there is a grip)
I see a falling star (a vacant stare)

And I asked the Lord - I wonder where you are
Kingdoms of earth, they don't mean nothing to me
I'd give my life if it would help you be free
This ain't the way that God intends it to be
Don't you wanna talk about it?

I called your lawyer, but he said you were gone
I didn't see you 'cause your headlights weren't on
You shut the door and faded into the dawn
Don't you wanna talk about it?

A line is drawn (the fear of death)
A bridge is crossed (the savoire-faire)
A friend is gone (the ratty breath)
But is not lost (the falling hair)
I pray each night
I asked the Lord on high (a vacant stare)
Where you are - and I asked him why

Spoken: 
Why must this go on? This battle inside
That rages and rages like some restless tide
Over and over and over again
The flesh and spirit come against each other
But I love you my brother, my brother

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
It goes on and on, this night does not end 

Click here for a great article put together on Wikipedia with both Larry and Randy talking about the issues in that relationship breakdown over 40 years and talking about their endeavours to mend it. Yes, both Christian, and human, and let's not take sides in judgment. Not at this time. May the Lord help us all. And for those who enjoy the songs, just found this video below of Cliff and Larry — The Rock that Doesn't Roll and UFO
