Song of the Week: “On My Way” by Phil Collins


My friend Scott introduced me to this song this summer, and as I embark on the journey from this precious moment in my life toward the next, I can’t think of a song that sums up my feelings better.  I’m always sad to leave Lake Ann behind when the summer ends, but that sadness pales in comparison to the joy that fills me when I realize that, at last, I’m on my way home again with the ones I love the most: my family.  So, tell everybody I’m on my way, and I’m loving every step I take.  I hope that my path brings me back to Lake Ann time and again, but no matter what happens, there’s nowhere else that I would rather be than on my way – on my way forward, on my way upward, on my way home.  I can’t wait to see what the journey holds for me next.

“On My Way” by Phil Collins

Tell everybody I’m on my way
New friends and new places to see
With blue skies ahead, yes I’m on my way
And there’s no where else that I’d rather be

Tell everybody I’m on my way
And I’m loving every step I take
With the sun beatin’ down, yes I’m on my way
And I can’t keep this smile off my face

‘Cause theres nothing like seein’ each other again
No matter what the distance between
And the stories that we tell will make you smile
Oh it really lifts my heart

So tell ’em all I’m on my way
New friends and new places to see
And to sleep under the stars and could ask for more
With the moon keeping watch over me

Not the snow not the rain can change my mind
The sun will come out wait and see
And the feeling of the wind in your face can lift your heart
Oh, there’s no where I would rather be

‘Cause I’m on my way now
Well and truly
I’m on my way now

I’m on my way now(x3)

Tell everybody I’m on my way
And I just can’t wait to be there
With blue skies ahead yes I’m on my way
And nothing but good times to share

So, tell everybody I’m on my way
And I just can’t wait to be home
With the sun beating down yes I’m on my way
And nothing but good times to show

I’m on my way
Yes, I’m on my way
