“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

  • REVIEW: Fleetwood Mac at Rod Laver Arena Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    Given the well-documented dramas they’ve endured over the decades, you assumed by now Fleetwood Mac were pretty much invincible. However reuniting that classic Rumours-era line-up back for the 2014/2015 tour proved they had one more soap opera-style twist up their billowing sleeves. So in 2019, it’s either this Lindsey Buckingham-free version of Fleetwood Mac or […]
  • Fleetwood Frankenband a beautiful monster Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    FLEETWOOD MAC ★★★★ Rod Laver Arena, until September 9 Eighteen months ago, it seemed positively absurd that someone like Neil Finn – a well known musician and songwriter in his own right who had by no means put his feet up – could, or even would, join a band like Fleetwood Mac. Perhaps it still […]
  • Another Rumours deluxe set coming this fall Friday, August 23, 2019

The latest 4CD package, out October 25, compiles tracks from the previously released 2004 and 2013 reissues of the album. The package is a slimmed-down version of the 6-disc […]
  • Fleetwood Mac: Still going their own way Thursday, August 22, 2019
    Since it began as a British rock band in 1967, Fleetwood Mac has undergone 19 iterations while steadily adding Americans and, most recently, a New Zealander to its line-up. Its only remaining founding member is drummer Mick Fleetwood, who recently described each version of the group as “incredibly different musical episodes in this Shakespearean play […]
  • Seeing Fleetwood Mac in 2019 is a strange experience — but they’ve always been a strange band Wednesday, August 21, 2019
    If their songs weren’t so strong, endurance may be Fleetwood Mac’s greatest legacy Thirty minutes into Fleetwood Mac’s set at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre this week, Stevie Nicks admitted that she didn’t realise “Black Magic Woman” was a Fleetwood Mac song until well after she’d joined the band. It’s an astounding admission. Sure, the song […]
