Fleetwood Mac - Don't Stop (Official Music Video)




"Don't Stop" reflects Christine McVie's feelings after her separation from Fleetwood Mac's bass guitarist, John McVie, after eight years of marriage. "'Don't Stop' was just a feeling. It just seemed to be a pleasant revelation to have that 'yesterday's gone'," she remembers in The Fleetwood Mac Story: Rumours and Lies, "It might have, I guess, been directed more toward John, but I'm just definitely not a pessimist."


Written by vocalist and keyboard player Christine McVie. Sung by guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and McVie, it was a single taken from the band's hit album Rumours (1977). It is one of the band's most enduring hits, peaking at No. 3 on the Billboard singles chart. In the UK market, "Don't Stop" followed "Go Your Own Way" as the second single from Rumours and peaked at No. 32. In the US market, it was the third single released, and peaked at No. 3 in October 1977.





Lyrics


[Lindsey Buckingham:]

If you wake up and don't want to smile

If it takes just a little while

Open your eyes and look at the day

You'll see things in a different way


[Buckingham and C. McVie:]

Don't stop thinking about tomorrow

Don't stop, it'll soon be here

It'll be here better than before

Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone


[Christine McVie:]

Why not think about times to come?

And not about the things that you've done?

If your life was bad to you

Just think what tomorrow will do


[Buckingham and C. McVie:]

Don't stop thinking about tomorrow

Don't stop, it'll soon be here

It'll be here better than before

Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone


[Buckingham and C. McVie:]

All I want is to see you smile

If it takes just a little while

I know you don't believe that it's true

I never meant any harm to you


[Buckingham and C. McVie:]

Don't stop thinking about tomorrow

Don't stop, it'll soon be here

It'll be here better than before

Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone


[Buckingham and C. McVie:]

Don't stop thinking about tomorrow

Don't stop, it'll soon be here

It'll be here better than before

Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone


[Buckingham and C. McVie:]

Don't you look back

Don't you look back

Don't you look back

Don't you look back
