On My Way

Story Behind The Song

I believe people can do amazing things it just takes the decision to make it happen and the action follows. I wanted to write about those moments where you don't think you'll be able to stand up, but you do. With strong determination, faith and hope a person can rise above any circumstance.

Lyrics

Walking through the forest I can hardly see.
A light is shining through, but somehow it misses me.
Slowly moving forward I can feel the leaves
Draggin? from my boots like some painful memories.

And my fears cry stay
I can?t slow down just one more day
And the tears, sting my face.
Can?t turn around, I?m on my way

Silence growing louder and I want to scream
Is there anyone out there, anyone to find me.
Night is getting colder, drop to my knees.
How did I end up here, didn?t see it coming

And my fears cry stay
I can?t slow down just one more day
And the tears, sting my face
Can?t turn around, I?m on my way

And I?m on my way to where the road is straight
On my way down the path of fate
On my way to where the air is clear
Where I can see and hear
I?m on my way

Clearing all the branches I begin to breathe
Fillin? up my soul with the strength to just believe
Painful are the struggles but hope is free
Free to find the way, the way of destiny.

And my fears cry stay
I can?t slow down just one more day
And the tears, sting my face.
Can?t turn around, I?m on my way.

And my fears cry stay
I can?t slow down just one more day
And the tears, sting my face.
Can?t turn around, I?m on my way.

Walking through the forest I can hardly see
A light is shining through but this time it finds me.
