She broke down and let me in
Made me see where I’d been

Been down one time
Been down two times
I’m never going back again

You don’t know what it means to win
Come round and see me again

Been down one time
Been down two times
I’m never going back again

The third track on Fleetwood Mac’s magnum opus, Rumors, this is the song with least lyrics and most instrumentation, features a complex guitar playing, and simple lyrics.

The song is about finding Lindsey Buckingham finding new love or rebounding after his break-up with Stevie Nicks.

What have the artists said about the song?
Songwriter Lindsey Buckingham told Rolling Stone:

That was a very naive song. I had broken up with Stevie and maybe met someone. It could have been someone who really didn’t mean a thing.

Co-producer Ken Caillat told Rolling Stone he made guitar techs restring Buckingham’s guitar every twenty minutes when recording this song:

I wanted to get the best sound on every one of his picking parts. I’m sure the roadies wanted to kill me. Restringing the guitar three times every hour was a bitch. But Lindsey had lots of parts on the song, and each one sounded magnificent.
