Stevie Nicks

Destiny

1993 Version

1994 Album Version

“Destiny” is Track 6 on Street Angel. It was originally rehearsed for The Wild Heart (1983), Stevie Nicks’ second solo album. “Destiny” is related the song “Enchanted,” which was recorded for The Wild Heart. Both songs share some of the same lyrics.

Lyrics

Crying in the morning
Trying to be strong
Waiting for the spring to turn into the fall
Love don’t mean what it says at all
My destiny says that I’m destined to fall

My destiny is riding again
Rolling in the rain
Unwinding in the wind
My destiny is fighting again
Secretly unwinding
What it was I was supposed to say
To say to you today

Well, it wasn’t like the others
It was nothing at all
It wasn’t like anything
It was easy to fall
Love don’t mean what it says at all
My destiny says that I’m destined for it all

My destiny is riding again
Rolling in the rain
Unwinding in the wind
My destiny is fighting again
Secretly unwinding
What it was I was supposed to say
To say to you today

Crying…

Still crying in the morning
Trying to be strong
Waiting for the spring to turn into the fall
Love never meant what it said at all
My destiny proved I was destined to fall

My destiny is riding again
Rolling in the rain
Unwinding in the wind
My destiny is fighting again
Secretly unwinding
What it was I was supposed to say
To say to you today

I am crying…
(Crying…)
I am trying…
(Trying to be strong…)
To be strong

Heartbroken, unspoken
You were nothing like the others
(Crying…)
You were nothing like the others
(Trying to be strong)

All gone (Crying…)
Nothing left at all
Heartbroken, unspoken
