Though this may not be destiny,
With rising moon and fading tide
True love, my soul will soon be free.

Each moment just a short degree.
Release these bonds that I have tied,
Though this may not be destiny.

Acceptance, now I know the key.
My faith in you I thus confide
True love, my soul will soon be free.

To laugh? To weep? To fight or flee?
To take me now right by your side,
Though this may not be destiny?

Two hearts that beat as one, my plea;
Believe the words herein implied
True love, my soul will soon be free.

My time has has come and now I see.
A way to gain more strength inside,
Though this may not be destiny
True love. My soul will soon be free.
