about

For Edric Haleen's third Songwriting Circle, Ross Durand challenged us to For our part, Ross Durand challenged us to either
eat a fortune cookie and then write a song inspired by the fortune inside, or read [either Dave or William’s] horoscope for October 26th, 2012 and then write a song based on it.

For reference, Dave's fortune cookie reads, "If you love, love will follow you." William is a Pisces, and his horoscope as published in The State newspaper on Oct 26th, 2012 read, "A family or community setting feels very claustrophobic now. Your desire to get away and your craving for something different are thwarted by current economic circumstances. Finding the unusual and delightful in your everyday surroundings is the challenge now."

lyrics

Mr. Weatherman of Fate
Will you please forecast my future?
All things must come to pass
And there's nothing I can do, sir
I wish to tell you everything you've ever said's come true
So every morning I rely on you

[chorus]
It's written in the stars
And published in the paper
And each turn of the cards
Reveals another caper
And I'm hanging on each word you have to say
I can't wait to see what I will do today!

Dictating my destiny
Is a dangerous game to play
But if I follow your advice
My life could change today
You're a prophet! I believe my life is in your hands
A star to guide me through the shifting sands

[chorus]
It's written in the stars
And published in the paper
And each turn of the cards
Reveals another caper
And I'm hanging on each word you have to say
I can't wait to see what I will do today!

[bridge]
And when family and community are
Feeling kind of claustrophobic, my
Getaway is thwarted by some
Reasons mostly economic, I'll
Count on you to see me through, you
Told me this was gonna happen, there's
No place to hide, so enjoy the ride
No matter how life tries to step on you...

[chorus]
It's written in the stars
And published in the paper
In a Chinese restaurant --
A message from the baker, it says
"If you believe in Love, then Love will follow you", and I say...
I can't wait to see what I will do!

[chorus]
It's written in the stars
And published in the paper
And the lines upon my palms
Evaporate like vapor, and there's
Only so much Time that God has given you, and I say...
I can't wait to see what I will do!
