Alan Walker Goes On A Mission To Save The World In His Latest Single “On My Way”
Published by Alexandru on May 9, 2019
Alan Walker, Sabrina Carpenter, and Farruko team up for a new hero anthem entitled “On My Way“. Based on a futuristic Alan Walker and Big Fred production, the song blends English and Spanish perfectly to express that feeling we all get before doing something that’s right, even if it paralyzes us with fear. Let’s break down the song’s lyrics to find out what Sabrina and Farruko want to tell us.
In the first verse, Sabrina seems to be describing that moment we all see in action movies when the hero prepares to go on a mission to fight the evil. Transposing herself in the character, Sabrina tells us that she doesn’t want to talk or interact with anyone before the final battle happens but instead she wants a few moments for herself. Even if she’s playing the hero, the singer is also feeling scared and a bit frustrated that the rest of the world doesn’t understand her. She’s actually a regular person even if everyone perceives her as a superhuman.
In the pre-chorus, Sabrina tells us that the entire scene is actually a ritual and once she’s done sharing a few tears, she’ll be back on her feet and ready to save the world. In fact, she mentions that she’s capable of taking her misery and using it as a weapon, something that everyone seems to love about her. In the Chorus, the singer tells us that after going through these moods, she feels wide awake and conscious that she is the only person capable of watching her back. She is now fully functional and on her way to save the world.

In the second verse, Farruko tells us that his battleground is actually a love story. Right from the beginning of his verse, the singer mentions that he’s not feeling comfortable in this situation and the only way he can become a better person is to end the relationship. After numerous fights, Farruko decided to so and take the blame on himself. Even if he loves the other person involved, breaking up was probably the best option for both of them.
Moral of the song? Each and every one of us is a hero for the simple fact that we’re able to put up our game face every single day of the week. Even if it takes strength and courage to play our part in this world, it’s okay to cry and feel scared sometimes. As long as we’re able to and get back on our feet and grow as a person, we’re on the right path.
