I Wasn't there the moment you first learned to breathe
But I'm on my way
On my way
I wasn't there the moment you got off your knees
But I'm on my way
On my way

Lay down
And come alive in all you've found
All you're meant to be
And for now
We'll wait until the morning light
And close our eyes to see
Just close your eyes to see

A tear must have formed in my eye
When you had your first kiss
But I'm on my way
On my way
So leave a space deep inside for everything I'll miss
Cause I'm on my way
On my way

Lay down
And come alive in all you've found
All you're meant to be
And for now
We'll wait until the morning light
And close our eyes to see
Just close your eyes to see

And when you feel no saving grace
Well I'm on my way
On my way
And when you're bound to second place
Well I'm on my way
On my way
So don't believe it's all in vain
Cause I'm on my way
On my way
The light at the end is worth the pain
Cause I'm on my way
On my way

I'll be there the morning you come out in white
Cause I'm on my way
On my way

    Alejandro wrote it to his soulmate. He's the only one of his brothers that isn't married and so this is why he wrote it, to let her know that he's on his way.

    I think the meaning could be taken in many perspectives. It could be about a father /daughter relationship or of someone searching for their soulmate. U think the song is beautiful because it could mean many different types of loves depending on the listener. A universal love song :)

    Alejandro once said this about on my way:
    "the entire song is a big message to her, my soulmate. I'm telling her not to ever think the pain she goes through is meaningless because it will send her to me. It'll be worth it when we find each other. "

    A man is about to marry the woman of his dreams and hes talking about how he hasnt been there all through her life, but he was always going towards her and throughout his life the things she done without him has effected him "a tear must have formed in my eye when you had your first kiss"however towards the end of the song he states that he will be on his way there waiting on her when she walks down in her wedding dress so he doesnt have to be on his way anymore. Hes found her. -ciara:)

    I went to their concert two nights ago and before he sang it he said, "this goes out to all the single people out there who haven't met that special someone yet". So there you have it.
