On my way
On my way
On my way
On my way
On my way
On my way
On my way
On my way
On my way
On my way
On my way
On my way
I would like to reach out my hands
I may see you, I may tell you to run
On my way
On my way
Nobody safe, nobody on

Well, pick me up with golden hand
I may see you, I may tell you to run
On my way
On my way
Nobody safe, nobody on

I would like to hold my little hand
How we will run we will, how we will crawl we will
I would like to hold my little hand
How we will run we will, how we will crawl
Send me on my way
On my way
Send me on my way
On my way
Send me on my way
On my way
Send me on my way
On my way
Send me on my way
On my way
Send me on my way
On my way
Send me on my way
On my way
On my way

I would like to reach out my hand
I may see you, I may tell you to run
On my way
On my way
Nobody safe, nobody on

Well, pick me up with golden hand
I may see you, I may tell you to run
On my way
On my way
Nobody safe, nobody on

I would like to hold my little hand
How we will run we will, how we will crawl we will
I would like to hold my little hand
How we will run we will, how we will crawl
Send me on my way
On my way
Send me on my way
On my way
Send me on my way
On my way
Send me on my way
On my way
Send me on my way
On my way
Send me on my way
On my way
Send me on my way
On my way
On my way

Well, I would like to hold my little hand
How we will run we will, how we will crawl we will
I would like to hold my little hand
How we will run we will, how we will crawl
Send me on my way
On my way
Send me on my way
On my way
Send me on my way

On my way
On my way
Send me on my way
On my way
Send me on my way

Way
Send me on my way

Way
On my way

I would like to reach out my hand
I may see you, I may tell you to run
On my way
On my way
Nobody safe, nobody on
(Who are those killer afterglow voices?)

    Poor little abused kid! But he made it through and he wishes he could be there to help his younger self not be as fearful? The lyrics don't match the music unless the person experiencing the music hears it as a victory song.

    I see spiritual meaning. Personally, i would like to reach out and see god, know him, live a great life -- not just walk through this existence, but run alongside god with energy and excitement. No one can be safe in this life without god to protect them --"nobody safe. " to me, the reference to "my little hand" refers to my little hand reaching out like a child to him-- asking for his help, asking for him to hold my little hand as he and i go through life's ups and downs together -- sometimes running, sometimes crawling. --him beside me in all things--my little hand in his big hand. The statement "send me on my way" goes out not only to god, but to people in the sense that i want people to let me live my life apart from their judgment -- to "send me on my way" with good wishes for me. But the "send me on my way" is also an answer to god's call to join him, to live my life his good way with his good blessing, and have him send me on my way to love others. Then, finally, for the earth to "send me on my way" to heaven when my time here is done.

    Alivia loves it! I have to keep playing it over and over for her. She is defiantly a prodigy of you. Music makes her happier than almost anything!
