STRATOVARIUS LYRICS - "Destiny" (1998) album (2022)

1. Destiny


[Tolkki]

The times are changing so fast
I wonder how long it lasts
The clock is ticking time is running out
The hatred fills this Earth
And for what is worth
We're in the end before we know

Throughout the years
I have struggled to find the answer that
I never knew
It strucked me like a million lightnings
And here I am telling to you

Every second of day it is coming your way
Future unknown is here to stay
Got to open your mind
of you will be led to astray
There's a time to live
There`s a time to die
But no one can`t escape the Destiny

Look all these things we`ve done
Under the burning Sun
Is this the way to carry on?
So take a look at yourself
And tell me what do you see
A wolf in clothes of the Lamb?

Throughout the ....

Every second ...

Let your spirit free
Through Window of your Mind
Unchain your Soul from hate
All you need is Faith

I control my Life
I am the One
You control your Life
But don't forget Your Destiny....

It's time to say goodbye
I know it will make you cry
You make your Destiny
I know you'll find the way
And outside Sun is bright
The things will be alright
I will be back one day to you
So please Wait For ME

2. SOS


[Tolkki/Tolkki-Kotipelto]

I'm waiting for the rain now
To settle the dusty air
Clearing up my emotions
Facing it all if I dare

I've been thinking
I've been trying
But I've always been denying
Wasted days are still inside of me
It's time to set them free

Why don't we see what is going on?
There are not so many years to be wasted
Until the damage is done and the beauty is gone
Save Our Souls
What is the price that we pay?
Save Our Souls
Do we have nothing to say?

3. No Turning Back


[Tolkki-Kotipelto]

So long I have been accepting what I've seen
Never really speaking my mind
Now the heat's leaking out
I'd like to scream and shout
I want to leave it all behind

There's no one else to turn the wheel
I've got my own life to steer

No turning back
Coz I wanna know who I am and I want to live my life
No turning back
Tomorrow's awaiting, I'm on the way

Hard to find the right words
And not to make it worse
A choice that has to be done
It is just my life
Can't make no compromise
And to stop what has begun

There's no one else...

I have all the strings in my hands
The choices that's been laid for me
I am not taking more commands
Coz now finally I'm free

4. 4000 Rainy Nights


[Tolkki]

These empty days are filling me with pain
After I left it seems my life is only rain
My heart is longing to the better times
When everything was still so fine

I wonder why it happens so fast
You give your heart away knowing it might not last
I'm still here waiting for the rain to fall
And to see you once again

4000 Rainy Nights
4000 Nights I'd be with you
4000 Rainy Nights with you

I keep your memory in my heart
You give me hope when everything is so dark
That thing nobody can take away
Forever in me

4000 Rainy...

5. Rebel


[Tolkki]

(Video) Stratovarius - Destiny, Full Album (1998)

You found the truth again
I showed the way
The Path of Wisdom is the only way to reality
You learned to live Your life
The hard way
Your tears put out the fire from your soul

Lost behind the lies I can hear your cries
Now is the time to rise again so strong

Learn from your past
But better make it fast
The time is running out for you to change your life

You must learn to live
There's so much to give
Set Fire to your soul again and be... The Rebel
Hold your head up proud

6. Years Go By


[Tolkki]

Look around do you see
So many things have changed
And you should know by now
I never meant to hurt you at all
All my life I have been an outcast
But now I've been reborn
And I see things so clear

Open your eyes and realize
Hard times are over if you want
Open your mind
Reach for the stars
Answer is there for us to find

Years go by
Never know when it's too late
Years go by
Yourself you seal your fate
Don't look the answer from horizon
It's closer than you think
Years go by, oh how they go by

7. Playing With Fire


[Tolkki - Kotipelto]

Hunger grows stronger I feel it day by day
I need I desire her passion now
I see that look the shine in her eyes
Can't let her go she's so divine
There's no one who could stop me now
She'll be mine

She's teasing I'm unfreezing wanting more and more
I'm dreaming just like streaming through the door
I see that look ...

Playing With Fire
Hiding inside the flames
Playing With Fire
It's a dangerous game

8. Venus In The Morning


[Tolkki]

It's 4 in the morning
I'm gazing the sky with
Millions of stars
A moment before the Dawn
The endless Universe fills me all
Where are you now?
Alone just like me and Venus in the Morning?

(Video) Stratovarius - Destiny 1998 Full Album

I touch your face that's filled with pain
I kiss away the tears from your eyes
I've waited YOU for 8000 days
Now I've come here to set you free

But where are you now...
Forget the future don't live the past
Live for today because life goes too fast
Go find the Key to your Divine Mind
Open the Door so many answers you'll find

Like Venus in the Morning

9. Anthem Of The World


[Tolkki]

The setting sun creates another world
The shadows fall another day is in the end
The Paradise is sleeping peacefully
And one more day is again history

Tell me can we go on like this?
Everybody is living in a bliss
Are these the last times of our Mother Earth?
Or is it just beginning of new Birth?

Don't be afraid we must be wise
Patient and peaceful and strong
Maybe it's like you would throw the dice
Then hope that nothing goes wrong
Remember that you have the right to say
All things that you feel inside
Open your mind and you open your eyes
Together now is the time

Sing the Anthem Of The World
But will we ever learn
To control our hate and to forgive
We must learn to find the way
To just live another day
And be free like an Eagle in the sky

How about if God just let us down?
If he just is polishing his crown?
What's the key to the Universe?
Is life down here just one big endless curse?

Don't be afraid...

Sing the Anthem Of The World....

10. Cold Winter Nights


[Tolkki-Kotipelto]

[bonus]

Summer's gone a while ago
The daylight dims away
I'm watching here how the snow begins to fall
Yesterday's like a dream
A memory in my head
Like the life's gone behind the winter wall

(Video) Stratovarius – Destiny (1998) [VINYl] - Full album

I'm lighting up the candles and lock the door
Sitting by the fire
It's time to dream some more

I have to find a way how to survive
I am surrounded by the starlight
I have to find the path
and to escape from the Cold Winter Nights

And in the morning there's no trace of the sun
Just gray fog hanging above my head
All the birds are quiet hiding in the woods
Can't see no movement are they all dead?

11. Dream With Me


[Japanese Bonus Track]

Now it is time for you to close your eyes
They've seen much pain it's slowly filling your mind
Pretty as they are but now so pale
You better leave all your worries far behind

Not long ago when you had the fire
Burning inside of you brighter than any flame
You were the one that I believed in
Keeping our hopes up high where are you now?
Where do you aim?

Let me take you back
To the place you know
Why don't you dream with me
The answers will be found

Now it is time to open your eyes again
See how all the sorrows have disappeared faded away
I am right here waiting for your call
If you still need me to guide your pace
Through the day

Let me take you back
To the place you know
Why don't you dream with me
The answers will be found

Let me take you back
To the place you know
Why don't you dream with me
The answers will be found

[Solo]

Let me take you back
To the place you know
Why don't you dream with me
The answers will be found

Let me take you back
To the place you know
Why don't you dream with me
The answers will be found

Why don't you dream with me

STRATOVARIUS LYRICS

You control your Life but don't forget Your Destiny.... Wasted days are still inside of me,. It's time to set them free.. You learned to live your life, the hard way.. It's 4 in the morning I'm gazing the sky with. Millions of stars.. Go find the key to you divine mind,. Open the door so many answers you'll find. Like Venus in the Morning.. We must learn to find the wa to just live another day.. We must learn to find the wa to just live another day.. My head explodes, my ears ring. I can't remember just where I've been. The last thing that I recall. I got lost in a deep black hole. Don't want to find out. Just want to cut out. I grab my things and make my run. On the way out, another one. Would like to know before I stop. Did I make it or did I flop. Don't want to find out. Just want to get out

I could talk about Stratovarius and this album during the next century...So I just let you here because if you don't listen to this album you can't really undersand what I am saying.... Everyone seems to hail "Visions" as the best release from Stratovarius, I don't know, it somehow didn't impress me like "Destiny" They do not miss a beat on this one, it's flawless.. The guitar work is out of this world, Timo is every bit as good as Yngwie Malmsteen, and he proves it on "Destiny". IMO there are at least 2 Power Metal anthems on this one, "Anthem of the World" (how ironic) and "Destiny" HIGHLY reccomended!. This Cd blew me away the first time I listened to it.. It starts with a boys choir, has volcanic keyboard and guitar playing with Timo Kotipelto's operatic voice thrown in for good measure.. Stratovarius mixes it up brilliantly with good power ballads like Venus in the Morning and 4000 Rainy Nights to rocking songs like Anthem of the World, SOS and uplifting fare like Years go By.. If you liked Visions then you will like this one too.. Albums starting from Visions are getting more and more epic all the time and it shows on this one too.. Now there's 2 long epic tracks "Destiny" and "Anthem of the World" compared to Visions that had only one, the title track.. "SOS" and "Playing with Fire" are the best songs on Destiny and show that Stratovarius hasn't forgot how to please a hard rock fan like me.. If there weren't an album called Visions I would give this 5 stars but now I'll take 1 out because of a lack of originality and a little weaker songs.

I could talk about Stratovarius and this album during the next century...So I just let you here because if you don't listen to this album you can't really undersand what I am saying.... Stratovarius' seventh album, Destiny (1998), is perhaps the second best record that has been released by the Finnish metal gods (once more, I have listened to "medleys" of their entire catalog from 'Fright Night' to 'Infinite' in their website.). Highlights are as follows: Opener "Destiny" is a monster of an opener, at over ten minutes long, it is the epic of the album (every Strat album has at least one epic it seems.). Overall, highly recommended for fans of Strat's other albums, as well as bands such as Sonata Arctica, Children Of Bodom, Warmen (Timo Kotipelto makes a little appearance on their 'Beyond Abilities' album), Kotipelto (naturally, Timo K.'s solo project), Thunderstone, et.. If there weren't an album called Visions I would give this 5 stars but now I'll take 1 out because of a lack of originality and a little weaker songs.
