My World

Songfacts®:

  • Here, Lavigne says that even though you may be stuck somewhere, you can always close your eyes and go wherever you want. Sometimes, she does it a little too much. >>

  • This is a track from Avril Lavigne's debut album, Let Go, which was released when she was 17. She co-wrote every song, but got a lot of help. "My World" was co-written and produced by Clif Magness, who had been writing hits since the '80s ("All I Need" by Jack Wagner, "It's Gonna Be Special" by Patti Austin).
