On My Way Lyrics

I'm sorry but
Don't wanna talk, I need a moment before I go
It's nothing personal
I draw the blinds
They don't need to see me cry
'Cause even if they understand
They don't understand
So then when I'm finished
I'm all 'bout my business and...

    It could be about a female who has trust issues with other people. As all the other people have said or done stuff to make her feel different or outcasted, and so she's retreated into herself and put walls up to keep it from happening again. Therefore the line "I draw the blinds" means she's put up walls, and the next line "they don't need to see me cry" kinda is like sure they've hurt my feelings and stuff but I don't need to give them the satisfaction of seeing those words work.

    In the chorus there's the lines "So take aim and fire away, i've never been so wide awake" means she's ready for whatever society says to her that's why the next lines are "no, nobody but me can keep me safe, I'm on my way" because she can't trust anyone but herself and is leaving the society where they make her feel different.

    i think it's about a girl who is hurt by things done or said by other people,maybe had lost a friend, and she decides to changes and vows to not be hurt by what people say and go ON HER WAY, because other people cant "keep her safe" which i am sure is a metaphor.

    this is based on sabrina carpenter's part. cause it's english.

    This song maybe is about a girl who is about to die of some disease she despair.
    (1) The part "i need a moment before i go" means she's recalling every sweet and suffered memory she remember.
    (2) While"Its nothing personal" could be mean that death will not choose anybody it likes, it just take and take every soul on earth.Everyone will die and thats why she insist that death is nothing personal.Everybody will meet death.
    (3) Lastly, the sentence: So then when I'm finished bla bla Save the World bla bla means she's ready to reunited with her loved one in the nextlife and saving her world from this painful reality.

    According to me, most probably it's about a girl who believes in things that people say are just imaginary or in fantasy. But she is sure they exist. Whenever she tells people about her feelings, people start laughing at her and ignore her. Also, the line "no, nobody but me can keep me safe and I'm on my way" means that now she could feel the "fire burning in her eyes" and she wants to prove herself correct. So, no one, but she herself, could save her from people's bullies and insults by proving that she was correct. The case is somewhere related to Luna Lovegood [a harry potter character] who, too, believed in things like nargles which people thought were imaginary and she was often bullied for that and was left alone. But still, she kept faith in herself and grew up to become a magizoologist. She proved herself.

    I think this song is brilliant at many levels. My interpretation of the lyrics is that the girl (she) has been abused and miatreated by the boyfriend (him) and is now ready to take a stand and break up with him. She jas come to the realisation that only her can save herself and nobody would really understand her reasons to still be with him even if they understand that she loves him. On his side, he excuses himself admitting that he has made mistakes but "he is human" but he made it because he loved her. That is a classic excuse of a man who abuses his wife/girlfriend. At the end he also says goodbye so he can move further. Love the song. Again, Alan Walker makes magic with a beautiful female voice.

    I think this song is about a girl who is tired of being overshadowed and some people don't like the girl she just wants to run away from everything and she is the only one who could keep herself save

    Her life has just crumbled, she is waking up to the truth about something that she has been deceived about her whole life.
    She is at a gathering but completely overtaken by the betrayal, and needs to retreat to a room for a bit before she leaves, she needs to cry privately (the tears can impair her driving.)
    But after she's done collecting herself she will put on a brave face for others.
    She's transforming the pain and turning it into something that takes bravery and courage to speak up and to help the ones that need it.
    She's ready to out the assailant, take aim.
    She doesn't care about what others think, she is safe with herself.
    The fury is fuel, and she's ready for the battle.

    I have to admit it is a very unique song, in its own way. We can call it a forever green song. It maybe about a teen girl...who feels different amongst her peers...or others. The reality is...that if you know someone who is suicidal....you can show them this song. In many ways it tells us the truth...about how someone feels.
    It has multiple meanings to it.....it can be applied to the youth of today and will always be the utmost beautiful song in the world....always. If one has the desire to acheive they can certainly......by this way....Im on my way. The blood moon is on the rise......fire burning in my eyes.....simply means....we are what we choose to be.
    Thanks to everyone.

    It might be a girl that broke up with her boyfriend (the spanish part just translate it if you want) because she wants to sacrifice herself to save the world thats why "its nothing personal" cause its for the world and also why the spanish part pretty much said "i love you dont leave" and thats why the girl "drew the blinds" so that he cant know that she is crying she still loves him but chooses to save the world instead or just by watching the music vid its interpretation can be as simple as just her leaving the boy just to complete some mission or research because he was distracting her

    I think the girl wants to take high aim..She doesn't care of anybody..She knows that only she can save herself..Nobody can't help her..in past,she has done to please everybody..But now she knows she can't be favourite of everybody..She has a different quality but someone has hurt her for this..Now she doesn't care of it
