Live At The Benefit for Arizona Heart Institute, 2000

Featured on Stevie Nicks’ 1981 album Bella Donna, the duet ‘Leather and Lace’ featured her then boyfriend Don Henley of the Eagles. Despite the ensuing breakup, Stevie and Don remained great friends and in 2000 reunited for a powerhouse performance of ‘Leather and Lace’, a song about a beautifully incongruent couple was inspired by Stevie’s past relationships that left the crowd absolutely bewitched.

The chemistry that these two legends have as they share the stage singing what Stevie considers “the best love song she’s ever written” is unbelievable, and even rivals that of her chemistry with Lindsey Buckingham!

Stevie Nicks wrote ‘Leather and Lace’ for Waylon Jennings and his wife Jessi Colter to sing as a duet. When Jennings and Colter divorced, Stevie kept it and featured it on Bella Donna.

This is a definite must see for fans of both Stevie Nicks and Don Henley – they’re in absolutely rare form when they’re onstage together, and if it’s not the lyrics that make you long for the person you call your better half, then their onstage chemistry definitely will!

+ Leather And Lace lyrics +

Is love so fragile
And the heart so hollow
Shatter with words
Impossible to follow
You’re saying I’m fragile I try not to be
I search only for something I can’t see

I have my own life and I am stronger
Than you know
But I carry this feeling
When you walked into my house
That you won’t be walking out the door
Still I carry this feeling
When you walked into my house
That you won’t be walking out the door

Lovers forever face to face
My city your mountains
Stay with me stay
I need you to love me
I need you today
Give to me your leather
Take from me my lace

You in the moonlight
With your sleepy eyes
Could you ever love a man like me
And you were right
When I walked into your house
I knew I’d never want to leave
Sometimes I’m a strong man
Sometimes cold and scared
And sometimes I cry
But that time I saw you
I knew with you to light my nights
Somehow I’d get by

Lovers forever face to face
My city your mountains
Stay with me stay
I need you to love me
I need you today
Give to me your leather
Take from me my lace

Lovers forever face to face
My city your mountains
Stay with me stay
I need you to love me
I need you today
Give to me your leather
Take from me my lace
But take from me my lace
Take from me my lace
