It's a Beatley psychedelic break-up song!


When you looked at me, all you could see
Was the man you thought I oughta be
Your work was never ever done
So I turned around to face the sun

I had to be on my way
I had to be on my way

Life can be full and not be whole
You can gain the world and lose your soul
You lose unless you understand
All the things you need don't fill your hand

That's why I'm on my way
That's why I'm on my way

The only joy you ever knew
Was finding something else to do
The bottom line is all you own
And you're gonna spend it all alone

'Cause I'm on my way
I'm on my way

Went on too long; didn't mean to preach
What I really meant to do was teach
I'm leaving wishing you the best
Now it's up to you to get the rest

'Cause I'm on my way
I'm on my way
'Cause I'm on my way
I'm on my way
