Hi! Love these lyrics, clever metaphor, the story is actually a little sad while the music has a rather uplifting positive tone, I think it's a great contrast.

    - Ashley Martin

I really liked this song! The vocal could be a little more up front along with the backup vocals. I could hear this on radio or in a movie. Your recording is very good.

Lyrics

Hey Destiny (rock)

Hey Destiny
I saw you coming, runnin' to me
Arms open wide
Swollen with pride
I saw that smile upon your face

But now, when I think back
You held one hand behind your back
Guess your fingers were crossed
And I paid the cost
I tripped and fell beneath your grace

I should have known you were only foolin'
You saw a young punk who needed schoolin'
You treated me so mean
Sweet Destiny

I'm not blind
I'm not dumb
You have shown your kindness to some
Opened the door
It's happened before
I've stood and watched them dance on through

I don't know
I can't see
Why couldn't you let it happen for me?
You've sealed my fate
I'm outside the gate
I had bet everything on you

You were the lie that I tried to believe in
Now I am doomed to a life of grievin'
You treated me so mean

I should have known you were only foolin'
You saw a young punk who needed schoolin'
You treated me so mean
Sweet Destiny

(How come you treated me so mean?)
