“Think About It” is Track 4 on Bella Donna, Stevie Nicks’ first solo album. It follows “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” and precedes “After the Glitter Fades” in the album track order.

About the Song

“I wrote ‘Think About It’ in 1975 for Chris (McVie) and for myself too. I wrote for her because I needed to write it for somebody else. She was going through her divorce with John (McVie) and in those days, there were no wardrobe mistresses or speech therapists or anything. There was just me and Chris. And so all she really had was me. And so I really had to be her friend and really be strong beside her at that point because she was really going to leave. And I had my own problems with Lindsey, and I was really going to leave. And so this was just a song to remind her and remind me at the same time that we were giving up a lot if we left and that it was really something that should be taken to, taken to the heart and thought about heavily before we walked out.”

Lyrics

Step into the velvet of the morning
Let yourself lay back within your dreams
Take on the situation but not the torment
Now you know its not as bad as it seems

Well I know you’d like to come away
But baby you can’t come
Your fortune is your life’s love
Oh and anytime you think about leaving
Think about what you know
Well think about it
Think about it before you go

Even when you feel like your life is fading
I know that you’ll go on forever You’re that good
Heartbreak of the moment is not endless
Now your fortune is your life’s love
Well honey
I know you’d like to come away
But baby you can’t come
Your fortune is your life’s love
Whoa and anytime you think about leaving
Think about what you know
Well think about it
Think about it before you go

And the heart says danger
And the heart says whatever
It is… that you want from me
I am just one small part
Of forever
Falling star star
Catcher

Even when you feel like your life is fading
I know that you’ll go on forever You’re that good
Heartbreak of the moment is not endless
Your fortune is your life’s love
Well honey I know you’d like to come away
But baby you can’t come
Your fortune is your life’s love
Anytime you think about leaving
Think about what you know
Well think about it
Think about it before you go
Well think about it
Think about it before you go
And the heart says danger
The heart says whatever
Think about it
Think about it before you go
