Get In My Way

Album: Blurred Lines (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Thicke explained the song's meaning to VH1: "Nobody has really ever gotten in my way except myself," he said. "I don't think anyone can get in your way except you, because if somebody does, you just make a right turn and go your own way. I've always struggled with that type of self-confidence, but this song and a lot of other songs I have written have helped me get through those periods in my life."
