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

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

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?)

    He is speaking to himself as a child. "i would like to hold my little hand". He wants to go back and protect the child that is him. Obvioulsy a song referring to his not so happy childhood. The band name "rusted root" is a big hint to a bad childhood. "how we will run away, how we will crawl" he wants to tell his "child self" to run and play and enjoy chilhood as it is meant to be. Beautiful 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.

    I'm not really sure, but this is how I took it. The man is in a situation that he knows can hurt an on looking individual. Although he knows about this potential danger, there isn't much he can do to help the person physically. He says "i would like to reach out my hands" because he would, but cannot. The only way the person can avoid this danger is one, by heeding the advice, and two, working together with the singer of the song.

    I first heard watching classic disney movie brother bear, and it's now conected to sending the dead away, and learding how to keep going. Little cub kopa is lost from his mom and meets kenai, a man turned into a bear, who also killed kopa's mom as a man, and kenai helps kopa to get over it and live and vise versa. Watch the movie and you'll know what I mean.
