Of The Fates' Design

from by The Close Proximity



Oh look what we got ourselves into
Another round of complications
The push and pull
Giving in to the chase
Never thought I'd have to face
The reality slowly coming into view

Will I see it through this time
Or will I have to resign
Give in to the Fates' design
Pulling me this direction
Surrendering desire unkind
At the risk of losing my mind
Oh is this of the Fates' design

We built our love like a temple
Encompassing and glorious
Divine by the pillar and the stone
Now crumbled into forsaken ruin
Desperate, confused, and exhausted
And when the dust settles we'll stand alone

But we could see it through this time
Salvaging the ties that bind
Taking heed of the Fates' design
Tempting us with distraction
And even if we fail to find
The pieces of ourselves that was yours or mine
Oh is this of the Fates' design

Or is this...
