“Well, I’ve been afraid of changin’

‘Cause I’ve built my life around you

But time makes you bolder

Even children get older

And I’m getting older, too”


The song, “Landside,” by Fleetwood Mac was released in 1975 is an extremely well-known and beautiful song. This song has appeared in many movies, such as Jack Frost in 1998 and Jersey Girl in 2004. I chose the verse above because I believe it is the best and most popular one of the song.  The woman is afraid to change because she has built her whole life around a man.  It seems that the landslide acts as time and she fears that it is slipping away from her.  While time may be going, she is as well.  It seems that throughout the song she is afraid of time running out, which is the possible change in her.  As she grows up, she is afraid of her relationship with him growing in different ways.  It seems as if she fears that they will not love her as she grows and changes, she just wants the security and acceptance of his love.
