  • I'm gonna organize some changes in my life
    I'm gonna exorcise the demons of my past
    I'm gonna take the car and hit the open road
    I'm feeling ready to just open up and go

    And I just feel I can be anything
    That all I might ever wish to be
    And fantasize just what I want to be
    Make my wildest dreams come true

    I'm on my way
    Out on my own again
    I'm on my way
    Out on the road again

    When I remember back to how that things just used to be
    And I was stuck inside a shroud of misery
    I felt I'd disappeared so deep inside myself
    I couldn't find a way to break away my hell

    When I'm feeling down and low
    I vow I'll never be the same again
    I just remember what I am
    And visualize just what I'm gonna be

    I'm on my way
    Out on my own again
    I'm on my way
    Out on the road again

    I'm on my way
    Out on my own again
    I'm on my way
    I'm gonna breakaway Writer/s: Adrian Frederick Smith, Stephen Percy Harris

  • Caitlin from Colmesneil, TxThis song was actually inspired somewhat by Steve Harris' divorce from his wife Lorraine in the 90's. The lyrics are basically him telling her he'll be just fine and get on with his life without her.
