Clay Aiken's Preview of On My Way Here  


You can now hear On My Way Here at these two links.
PopEater and AOL Music

My opinion - It is very powerful. The arrangement is perfect.
I love that you can hear Clay's voice above the music. The balance is just that - balanced.


It has an underlying beat that you cannot get out of you head. Some are calling it an "ear worm". I love how it starts out slowly and then builds. Clay puts just the right amount of emotion into this song.

OK - I admit it - I am addicted to this song.

I do believe Clay has a hit on his hands.

On My Way Here

Lyrics by Ryan Tedder

I took my first step
On that black and white kitchen floor
I sometimes wonder if that house is even there anymore
I had my first glimpse
Of love when I was five
I watched two people split apart
But still the three of us survived
I've seen the best
I've seen the worst
I wouldn't change what I've been through
I've touched the sky
I've hit the wall
But I did what I had to

Chorus

On my way here
Where I am now
I've learned to fly
I have to want to leave the ground
I've fallen hard but I've been loved
And in the end it all works out
My faith has conquered fear
On my way here
Oh yeah, yeah
My address has changed
Almost every year
I've found that standing still
Can quickly make a lifetime disappear
I'd rather try and fail
A thousand times denied
And this, whenever you feel pain
It lets you know you're alive
I've been a fool
I've been afraid
Yeah, I've been loved
I've been lied to
I've been wrong
And I've been right
I stood up when I had to

Chorus

No guarantees
I believed that I would find
An open door or a light
To lead me to the other side
I guess that is why

Chorus

What next?
