It's Fate is the second single released by Natalya Banhart off the album Perfect Strangers. It was released as a digital download and as a CD single in the US. The track features Jake Murder of fAthOm and includes not only his vocals but guitar playing. Natalya states that the track is very guitar heavy and is fast-paced while remaining melancholic.

Banhart also stated that the song is about "meeting your soulmate. He spends one great night with her and didn't realize this WAS the person he was meant to be with until it was too late and she was gone." She says that she didn't write this from an experience she had, only from what she has learned from other people.

It's Fate was written by Natalya, with a few lyrics supplied by Jake. The release date is still unknown.

Natalya in a screencap from It's Fate.


They sat together in the park
As the evening sky grew dark,

She looked at him and he felt a spark tingle to his bones.

T'was then he felt alone and wished that he'd gone straight

And watched out for a simple twist of fate.

They walked along by the old canal

A little confused, I remember well

And stopped into a strange hotel with neon burning bright.

He felt the heat of the night hit him like a freight train

Moving with a simple twist of fate.

A saxophone someplace far off played

As she was walking by the arcade.

As the light bust through a beat-up shade where he was waking up,

She dropped a coin into the cup of a blind man at the gate

And forgot about a simple twist of fate.

He woke up, the room was bare

He didn't see her anywhere.

He told himself he didn't care, pushed the window open wide,

Felt an emptiness inside to which he just could not relate

Brought on by a simple twist of fate.

He hears the ticking of the clocks

And walks along with a parrot that talks,

Hunts her down by the waterfront docks where the sailers all come in.

Maybe she'll pick him out again, how long must he wait

Once more for a simple twist of fate.

People tell me it's a sin

To know and feel too much within.

I still believe she was my twin, but I lost the ring.

She was born in spring, but I was born too late

Blame it on a simple twist of fate.
