On My Way - Lea Michele



The Experience: When my head tells me "no" my heart tells me "go"...  On My Way is a tug of war between what you feel like, and what's actually good for you...


Music video: As a video, On My Way is heavily one-sided. Lea Michele shows us the "fun" side of an unhealthy relationship, but leaves out the helpless, the barbwire, the rain, and the fading passion that the lyrics hammer home. The contrast would be powerful, except for the fact that the upbeat pop rythm practically buries the hurt.


The Meaning of On My Way: Lea Michele explores a girl's heart torn between what feels good - My heart tells me "go" and what she knows is for the best  - my head tells me "no". The result? Confusion - my heart's too drunk to drive and this blackout state of mind - that doesn't let her truly face the fact that she needs to get out. I should stay away from you tonight but... baby all I want is you tonight. It's the same theme as Shakira's I Can't Remember To Forget You, and Ariana Grande's Problem

Ask yourself: What's the matter with love today? Why is it so complicated? Why is it so hard to find true love?


LYRICS:

My words are wrapped in barbwire
My actions speak for what I can't say
'Cause I fall one step forward
To push you away, push you away

I wish that I could listen
To all the advice that I give away
But it's hard to see things clearly
Through all of the pain, all of the pain

I'm caught in the rain, caught in the rain

And my heart's too drunk to drive
I should stay away from you tonight
But in this blackout state of mind
Baby all I want is you tonight

When my head tells me "no"
My heart tells me "go"
So I'm hitting in the road 'cause I

I know my heart's too drunk to drive
But I'm on my way to you
Yeah, I'm on my way
To you, you, to you tonight
I'm on my way to you, you
To you, I'm on my way

There's a million voices
Screaming that this love's a dead-end road
But the only voice that I hear
Is telling me "go", telling me "go"

The sun is rising sober
While passion fades and I'm on my own
My helpless heart's hangover
I'm all out of hope, all out of hope

Where do we go? Where do we go?

Cause my heart's too drunk to drive
I should stay away from you tonight
But in this blackout state of mind
Baby all I want is you tonight

When my head tells me "no"
My heart tells me "go"
So I'm hitting the road 'cause I

I know my heart's too drunk to drive
But I'm on my way to you
Yeah, I'm on my way
To you, you, to you tonight
I'm on my way to you, you
To you, I'm on my way

And no one's words can stop me
I'm past the point of no return
No matter how it hurts me
I'm running to you, running to you

And my heart's too drunk to drive
I should stay away from you tonight
But in this blackout state of mind
Baby all I want is you tonight

When my head tells me "no"
My heart tells me "go"
So I'm hitting the road 'cause I

I know my heart's too drunk to drive
But I'm on my way to you
Yeah, I'm on my way
To you, you, to you tonight
I'm on my way to you, you
To you, I'm on my way to you
