The song was originally written for the Rumours album, but was dumped for a number of reasons for the song " I Don't Want to Know. The first stanza, " You could be my silver spring Blue-green colors flashing " was interpreted different ways by different people. One contributor thought that ' blue ' stood for sadness and ' green ' for envy, and that 'colors flashing' was similar to the phrase "eyes flashing" eyes are the window to one's soul. Stevie could be saying that they could have had a perfect love, as flawless as springs or oceans.
Similar to Lindsey and Stevie 's " Frozen Love ," in that both seem to be asking for untainted and pure love for each other. The second part of the song, " Don't say that she's pretty Baby, I don't want to know " may have reflected Stevie 's contempt for the other women Lindsey dated, notably Carol Ann Harris. For it to come back around like this has really been special to me.

When the remastered edition of Rumours was released in , "Silver Springs" was included at last, between "Songbird" and "The Chain".

Extended Play. So for it to come back around like this has really been, really special to me.
You will listen to me on the radio for the rest of your life, and it will bug you. I hope it bugs you. Only on Friday night did we let it go into something deeper. When we went on Friday, I knew we'd bring it out in case it was the last thing we'd ever do. The other shows were really, really good, but they weren't the show I wanted to leave behind.
This show was I wanted people to stand back and really watch and understand what [the relationship with Lindsey] was. It's like a release. Even now, we don't talk much, so when those songs come around and are directly involved with our relationship it's very therapeutic to work that stuff out.
This way we get to have closure. It was at the Record Plant, and Mick said, 'Stevie, I need vou to come outside to the parking lot cause I need to talk to vou for a minute. So we walked to the huge Record Plant parking lot and he said, 'I'm taking Silver Springs off the record.

General Comment I used to listen to this song all the time a few years ago when I was going through a messy breakup with a boyfriend. I take this song as being about a relationship in which a guy cheats on a girl, and she talks about how she believes that although he is with another person, he will always love her and will never forget her because they had something very special and no one can take that away. The girl is still on speaking terms with her ex and he tells her about his new girlfriend "and did you say she was pretty?
The girl also believes that no one would love him like she could. Flag Rizzy on February 04, General Comment i think this song is about the relationship between Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham I'm not sure of the exact reason their relationship ended, may have been him cheating on her, but papillon you are definately right about the still being on speaking terms with her ex, she's still in a band with him
