So I was walking through the food court at Purdue University and I heard this song on the radio and thought I'd really like to cover it. So I did and here's the final product. I guess this song is originally classified as rock, since it was originally performed by Fleetwood Mac, but it also has a well known country version done by the Dixie Chicks. But I don't really listen to much country. I just heard this song and was captivated by it, as I know many are, even Smashing Pumpkins covered it. Since I'm known for doing everything in piano, I took the original strum of the guitar and turned it into a piano. The beginning is pretty much the same as the guitar strum, but once the song progresses, I decided to add my own rhythm to it. I hope you like it!

Lyrics:
I took my love and I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
'Till the landslide brought me down

Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

Well, I've been afraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder, children get older
I'm getting older too

Well, I've been afraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder, children get older
I'm getting older too

So take my love and take it down
And if you climb a mountain and you turn around
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
The landslide will bring you down

And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
The landslide will bring you down
The landslide will bring you down

I've never had an account here so bear with me.

It must have been 2010 or 2011 when I first heard this song. How I got here the first time I don't know, but this song happened to me just before I needed it. I downloaded it onto my shitty little laptop and put it on my ipod. Practically all I listened to for a very important time of my life - I was about to meet my real father and sibling for the first time. I have a memory where my adopted parents are arguing or having a smoke or smoking to hide the arguing and I'm sitting in the back of the car, hugging my knees, just listening to this song. Over and over.

I kept coming back over the years. I would remember that my new phone didn't have it, or I would just look it up once I got internet access on my phone. And here I am in 2022, trying so hard to sum up how much it means to me. I'm here again. I'm still afraid of changing. I have gotten older, too.

There's three versions of me; one that is always longing for the past, one that is afraid of the future, and the one conveying these feelings right now. This cover speaks to every level, every emotion, and does its damned best to soothe.

I dunno what you've been up to for the last decade, Cayler, but please know that this is forever my favorite piece of music. Thanks for that.

An amazing cover of this song. It takes a special someone to pull this off. Keep with it and all you see can be yours.

Keep up the good work. you helped me get through many bad memories and bad moments. moving. never getting the chance to tell this one girl that i loved her. i hope i get another chance. if i do i will take that chance. thanks for getting me through the tough times. :)

Cayler responds:
