Song Description

Sometimes we have to appreciate that fate has its own time schedule and agenda.

Story Behind the Song

As happens so often, I sat down with my amazing Martin guitar and started playing a melodic line that inspired this philosophical song. My ever-patient and intuitive producer, Bill Bentley, added bass to the song but felt it was best left in its original form.


V1: I can't tell you what to say
I can't tell you what to do
I can't tell you how to feel - it's really up to you
But if I had my way I would set your spirit free
And watch you fly away
Hoping you'd glance back at me
Even when it shows up late
You can't ignore your fate
I've come to see, inevitably
It all comes down to destiny

V2: From the moment that we met
I knew the secrets that you kept
Hidden deep inside
Though you tried so hard to hide them
You ask me how that could be
Well, you're the other half of me
When the pieces fit - they fit
There's no denying it
You can try to escape the mighty hand of fate
But I'm pretty sure you'll see
The winner in the end is always destiny

V3: If there's a morale to this tale
It's that you either pass or fail
The test that life demands
The one that interferes with our own plans
There's always gonna be
Some kind of struggle to get free
From the life that we create
To the one declared by fate
It's really not that hard
If you just let down your guard
And allow yourself to be
Inspired by your destiny

When you find your true soulmate
You'll know it was worth the wait
Sometimes fate shows up a little late
