When you're taught through feelings

Destiny flying high above
all I know is that you can realize it

Destiny who cares
as it turns around
and I know that it descends down on me

It's just another day
the shame is gone
hard to believe
that I've let it go

Destiny can't replace my life
Scary shadows of my past
are alive

Destiny who cares
as it turns around
and I know that it descends
with a smile

It's just another day
the shame is gone
it's hard to believe
that I've let it go away

It's just a melody
it bleeds in me
hard to believe
that I've let it go

    General CommentHave you ever passed an oppurtunity that you should have grasped when it layed before your very feet? Don't ever let it go, it could be destiny.

    General CommentI am so glad that this band is finally getting some of the recognition it deserves.. this is a awesome song! Amy Lee no doubt has a beautiful voice its just the band is crappy. Lacuna Coil however is great.

    General CommentHeard this off Vampire: The Masquerade, and this song is very good. It's what got me into Lacuna Coil.

    General CommentWoah you guys, this is a board about what the song means to you haha. I think this song is about being overwhelmed/swamped(as the title would have you believe) by your future, like everyone wants you to be this amazing person making you feel ashamed of everything you are and that you aren't following your destiny. This song gives a big eff you to those people and says you have to make your own destiny

    General CommentThis song takes on a hugely more personal meaning if the opportunity that you let pass by is a girl. And her name is Destiny.

    Yes. that happened to me, so this song is so powerful, yet kind of spooky to me. As if this song was for me. It gives me shivers hearing Destiny!!! at the beginning. So weird.
