Liner Notes: 

This is in response to the Horror movie title challenge. I was given, "Manos - The Hands of Fate".

I didn't watch the movie, but curiously, I had the lyric done a week ago and waited to post it. Then I went to post it & realized I freakishly lost the original document on my Mac! Sad

I use a notebook & pencil to start ideas and had the first half of the lyric written there, but the second half was written on the computer & that document is GONE.

So I finished the lyric up the best I could. I don't want to work too hard on it because I liked what I had.....but I didn't want the challenge to go to waste.

"The hands of fate" is alive and well!! So I'm trying not to be upset about it......

NOTE: musicsongwriter (Nadia) is working on some music for this....stay tuned!

Lyrics: 

THE HANDS OF FATE

They reach out
Slowly take hold
Stronger than conviction
And centuries old

They choose you
When the time is right
No one knows the reasons
Why they change your life

[ch]
With the hands of fate
There’s no escape
They will overpower you
Make no mistake
Some bring blessings
Some bring heartache
Don’t try to run from
The hands of fate

You can wish
And make your plans
But when lightning strikes
It’s a whole new dance

You never know
What’s coming next
So live like it’s tomorrow
And don’t second guess

[ch]
With the hands of fate
There’s no escape
They will overpower you
Make no mistake
Some bring blessings
Some bring heartache
Don’t try to run from
The hands of fate

[br]
So roll down your windows
Take walks on the beach
Hold onto this moment
Right now you are free

Repeat ch

I'm sorry you lost what you had, but it seems you've done well with this. Wonderful take on that challenge!

I lose so much stuff myself, but I figure oh well, probably wasn't that great anyway, especially if you don't remember it haha.

This is really good, really like the when lightning strikes it's a whole new dance bit Smile
Haven't seen this movie either, not being much on the horror genre this is probably better written than its script was hahah

Sorry about the bits you lost, but you’ve done a wonderful job with what you had left. I particularly like the bridge. Nice!

Sounds painfully familiar regarding losing something... You've created a very strong and powerful lyric Kristi. It speaks to me. I don't know if I'll be able to come up with worthy music but I'd like to try if you are okay with that. I didn't watch the movie and I don't hear your lyric as a horror lyric, rather a philosophical perhaps so I might be not the right person for interpretation. Just thought I'd share with you my thoughts.

Very nice set of lyrics, it feels mysterious but still very positive. Really nice job with the prompt.

The chorus is perfect and the verses are very strong. Looking forward to Nadia cooking up some music for this!
