"Send Me On My Way" as written by Michael Glabicki, Jim Donovan, Jenn Wertz, Liz Berlin, Jim Dispirito, John Buynak and Patrick Norman....
(On my way, 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)
You know what they say about the young

Well pick me up with golden hand
I may see you, I may tell you to run (on my way, on my way)
You know what they say about the young

Well, I would like to hold my little hand
And we will run, we will, we will crawl, we will
I would like to hold my little hand
And we will run, we will, 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)
Mm hmm (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)
You know what they say about the young

Now pick me up with golden hand
I may see you, I may tell you to run (on my way, on my way)
You know what they say about the young

Well, I would like to hold my little hand
And we will run, we will, we will crawl, we will
I would like to hold my little hand
And we will run, we will, 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)
Mm hmm (on my way)

Well, I would like to hold my little hand
And we will run, we will, we will crawl, we will
I would like to hold my little hand
And we will run, we will, we will crawl

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

Oh oh oh (way)
Send me on my way
Oh oh oh (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)
You know what they say about the young

    General Commentthi song always gets me in a better mood about life for whatever reason. I think it's about life, living your own way by any means. How we will run how we will crawl...you sometimes can get where you're heading faster sometimes life gets more difficult and things slow you down. This song has got such a catchy and up lifting sound to it.

    General CommentI think the song is completely about freedom and living your life the way you want to, living so you have no regrets. In the video you see a child who gains wings, this is ultimate representation of freedom. Also in the video there are some symbol that people keep saying are cult symbol, such as the eye of illumination, this once again represents the idea of freedom and enlightenment. At the point where he says
    "I may see you, I may tell you to run
    You know what they say about the young"

    thats them telling you to be random and unpredictable as mentioned in trasta119's comment.

    How we will run, we will...
    How we will crawl, we will...

    this speaks of how they we will do anything to get to their destination, to life destination,


    the song is rather deep and really touched me deep down

    My InterpretationMy interpretation may be influenced by the song's association with "Matilda", but I feel that the song is about wishing that you could talk to your past self and help 'you' through some of your tough times and 'send you on your way', particularly yourself as a child.

    I see this due to lines like: "I would like to reach out my hand" and "I would like to hold my little hand", the hand doing the holding is normal sized, but the hand being held is 'little', both the holder and the one being held are the same person, hence I think it's the singer at to different points in his life, as a child and now.

    He's saying whatever tough times we go through in life, things will always get brighter and if only our future selves could go back and tell us that when we feel sad, it would be so much easier to 'get on our way'. :)

    General CommentMy childhood friend and I always thought this song was "The Simmian Way" like the "Simmians" were some kind of wise old mystical tribe or forgotten culture that held all of the secrets to life. Listen to the song and tell me you don't hear it. Sihh-mee-an-way!

    We'd wonder to ourselves "Like, who are the Simmians, man? What is the way." How saddened we were when we learned the real lyrics. I still refuse to believe it, and to this day sing about the "Simmians" and their knowledge and wisdom.
