Meaning of Everywhere by Fleetwood Mac & Song Story

The fourteenth studio album of the rock band Fleetwood Mac, called Tango in the Night (1987), became one of the most successful in the band’s discography. He gave fans of his work several hits at once, including the beautiful composition Everywhere.

Let’s remember how the song was written, and talk a little about the event, thanks to which it hit the charts again a quarter of a century after the first edition.

History of creation and meaning of Everywhere – Fleetwood Mac

Everywhere was written and performed by Christine McVie. It is difficult to say whether the text is based on some real events. Let’s not fantasize. It is clear that this is a song about the desire to start a relationship and always stay with a lover. However, it is possible that someone will perceive it differently.

As mentioned above, the composition was included in the Tango in the Night album and was released as a single in the US and the UK. On the Billboard Hot 100, she took the fourteenth place, and on the Foggy Albion rose to the fourth line. In the States, Everywhere also topped the so-called adult contemporary music chart for three weeks.

Clip Everywhere – Fleetwood Mac

The music video for Everywhere – Fleetwood Mac is based on the romantic ballad The Highwayman by English poet Alfred Noyes. It tells about the unhappy love of a robber and the daughter of a large landowner. Actually, watch the video if you haven’t seen it before. There everything is more than clear.

In March 2013, Everywhere re-entered the top twenty of the UK Singles Chart. The reason for the unexpected public interest in the song was its use in a funny advertisement for the British mobile operator 3. In this video, the Scottish pony dances famously to Everywhere. So the composition is again very popular.

Fleetwood Mac Lyrics

Can you hear me calling
Out your name?
You know that I’m falling
And I don’t know what to say
I’ll speak a little louder
I’ll even shout
You know that I’m proud
And I can’t get the words out

chorus:
Oh I
I want to be with you everywhere
Oh I
I want to be with you everywhere
(Wanna be with you everywhere)

Something’s happening
Happening to me
My friends say I’m acting peculiarly
C’mon baby
We better make a start
You better make it soon
Before you break my heart

Can you hear me calling
Out your name
You know that I’m falling
And I don’t know what to say
Come along baby
We better make a start
You better make it soon
Before you break my heart

Fleetwood Mac Lyrics

Can you hear me calling out loud
you by name?
You know that I’m falling
And don’t know what to say
I will speak a little louder
I will even scream
You know I’m proud
And I can’t say these words

Chorus:
Oh me
I want to be with you everywhere
Oh me
I want to be with you everywhere
(I want to be with you everywhere)

Something’s going on
happens to me
Friends saying I’m acting strange
Come on baby
We better start
You better make it quick
Before you break my heart

Can you hear me calling out loud
you by name?
You know that I’m falling
And don’t know what to say
Agree baby
We better start
You better make it quick
Before you break my heart

Song quote

Great vocals, a lively bass line and a muffled loss of Everywhere – all together this forms a magical track about the delight of the first moments of a relationship.
