Twist of Fate

John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John

About Twist of Fate

"Twist of Fate" is a song recorded by English-born Australian singer Olivia Newton-John for the soundtrack to the 1983 film Two of a Kind. It was written by Peter Beckett and Steve Kipner, and produced by David Foster. It reached number four in Australia and Canada, while peaking at number five on the US Billboard Hot 100 in January 1984, becoming one of Newton-John's last big hits. "Twist of Fate" was her last top-ten hit, to date. Billboard ranked it as number 42 on its listing of the top 100 singles of 1984. Due to its louder synthesizer-rock-oriented sound, "Twist of Fate" did not make the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. However, its flip side, "Take a Chance", a duet with John Travolta, did reach the Adult Contemporary chart and became a hit there, peaking at number three.

Do we deserve a second chance
How did we fall into this circumstance
We weren't so straight and narrow
This is much more than we deserve

A higher voice has called the tune
Two hearts that lost the beat will now resume
The gift of life extension
By divine intervention

It's gotta be a strange twist of fate
Telling me that Heaven can wait
Telling me to get it right this time
Life doesn't mean a thing
Without the love you bring
Love is what we've found
The second time around

Don't understand what's going on
Woke up this morning all the hurt was gone
This is a new beginning
I'm back in the land of the living

It's gotta be a strange twist of fate
Telling me that Heaven can wait
Telling me to get it right this time
Life doesn't mean a thing
Without the love you bring
Love is what we've found
The second time around
