Destiny, Destiny protect me from the world
Destiny, hold my hand protect me from the world

And I don’t see no confusion anywhere

And if the world does turn, and if London burns
I’ll be standing on a beach with my guitar
I want to be in a band, when I get to heaven
Anyone can play guitar
And they won’t be a nothing anymore
