Album: On My Way Here (2008)

  • Lyrics
  • Aiken told Billboard magazine why he made this the album's title track: "When [executive producer] Jaymes Foster and I came across the song 'On My Way Here,' written by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, I really connected to it lyrically. It sums up how the experiences we go through make us who we are. As I'm knocking on the door to 30 - and it's knocking hard - this decade has been about figuring out who I am. That set the tone for the album; they're all about things I've learned or universal lessons."
