Hmm. I have a lot of quotes I really, really love. These are ones I don’t see TOO much of but I find really telling.
I think there’s an inherent care and love there that will never really go away. (1984)
The fact that Stevie and I can have this ongoing attempt to still find each other in whatever way is still appropriate at this point in our lives - to mutually acknowledge that, even in front of 15,000 people or on a CD - that’s the difference. (2003)
You have a clearer kind of picture, this exchange of songs between the two of us, which becomes the subtext of the album, the sense of how circular this little journey has been, and now here we are at the beginning of a phase that if hopefully we keep making each other happy, there is this sense of promise. (2003)
I think there’s also kind of the comment that you can go your own way, you can always find somebody new, but you know, you’re still you and certain things are going to be the same no matter what. And I think we all found that to be true, you know, years later. (2007)
Each of our journeys has never been not a little about the other. ‘Miss Fantasy’ is more of the same thing. It’s a look back on…. it’s talking about having a dream, recalling certain events that occurred years and years ago. The chorus is talking about ‘Miss Fantasy, it may be that you don’t remember me, but I remember you.’ That’s addressing all that’s happened over the course of time. You remember the person you were and the person I was back then? Is there any way to find any of that? Do we want to? Is it important to? Those are songs about Stevie and me. (2013)
Lindsey was never quite able to understand what had happened to us, and that in itself had to make day-to-day living very difficult for him, and it did for me. (1990)
Because we did have fun. We did – we did live in our little house and watch movies and sit and play music and sing and practice and I cooked for him and I loved him. I loved taking care of him. I wanted him to be beautiful. I did everything I could do to make him happy. And that’s why it was hard for him when I left, because in Lindsey’s mind, all the other women that came after me were all going after rich rock & roll star Lindsey. Nobody was looking into the heart I had looked into. (1998)
Then Lindsey and I, we climb into this little lift to be hoisted onto the stage, and he clasps his hands behind his back and I hold onto them, and for those 40 seconds we’re united. It feels like we’re in love again. (2003)
It’s still the same fire, oh yeah, because Lindsey and I, you know, we have that everlasting love affair, that though, he’s married and has 3 children, can you believe that, he has 3 children - and he is a total dad, you know, he has been taking little girls to ballet lessons - but we still have that dynamic, that just is, that just exists, and will still be existing when we are 90 years old. (2005)
…of course Lindsey and I write about each other constantly because even though it has been 300 years since we broke up - and he has a wife and three kids - we feel totally right about each other. (2006)
Q: Is there always going to be part of you that’s in love with him [Lindsey]?
SN: Of course, absolutely. (2011)
It’s like Lindsey and me: no matter how many children or grandchildren you have, Lindsey, I’m always gonna be there. (2011)
