SLS ~ Duets

Song Lyric Sunday

Jim Adams hosts Song Lyric Sunday and today he chose duets for our theme. I’m going with “Leather and Lace” by Stevie Nicks and Don Henley, two of my favorite artists.

Stevie Nicks wrote this song for Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter’s duet album, Leather and Lace, but the song was not included on their album. Stevie then sang it with Don Henley and it peaked at No. 6 on Billboard’s Hot 100 in January 1982. It’s on Stevie’s Bella Donna album.

Leather and Lace

Is love so fragile
And the heart so hollow
Shatter with words
Impossible to follow
You’re saying I’m fragile I try not to be
I search only for something I can’t see
I have my own life and I am stronger
Than you know
But I carry this feeling
When you walked into my house
That you won’t be walking out the door
Still I carry this feeling
When you walked into my house
That you won’t be walking out the door
Lovers forever face to face
My city your mountains
Stay with me stay
I need you to love me
I need you today
Give to me your leather
Take from me my lace
You in the moonlight
With your sleepy eyes
Could you ever love a man like me
And you were right
When I walked into your house
I knew I’d never want to leave
Sometimes I’m a strong man
Sometimes cold and scared
And sometimes I cry
But that time I saw you
I knew with you to light my nights
Somehow I’d get by
Lovers forever face to face
My city your mountains
Stay with me stay
I need you to love me
I need you today
Give to me your leather
Take from me my lace
Lovers forever face to face
My city your mountains
Stay with me stay
I need you to love me
I need you today
Give to me your leather
Take from me my lace
But take from me my lace
Take from me my lace

  5. I love that song but never knew that was its name. Can you imagine having Stevie Nicks write a song like this and not include it on your album??? Unreal. She and Don sound good together.
