Lots of excitement among Clay fans today as Clay’s lead single
“On My Way Here” premiered on AOL’s Popeater site:

(note: I believe access to this audio track restricted to North America)

After searching, I did manage to find a Low Quality version (thanks, lyrichord!) which you can access if you’re living outside of the US/Canada:

LYRICS:

ON MY WAY HERE

I took my first step
on that black-and-white kitchen floor
I sometimes wonder if that house
is even there anymore
I had my first glimpse of love
when I was five
I watched two people split apart
but still the three of us survived

I’ve seen the best
I’ve seen the worst
I wouldn’t change what I’ve been through
I’ve touched the sky
I’ve hit the wall
But I did what I had to

On my way here
Where I am now
I’ve learned to fly
I have to want to leave the ground
I’ve fallen hard
But I’ve been loved
And in the end it all works out
My faith has conquered fear
On my way here

My address has changed
almost every year
I’ve found that standing still
can quickly make a lifetime disappear
I’d rather try and fail
a thousand times denied
At least whenever you feel pain
it lets you know that you’re alive

I’ve been a fool
I’ve been afraid
I’ve been loved
I’ve been lied to
I’ve been wrong
I’ve been right
I stood up when I had to

On my way here
Where I am now
I’ve learned to fly
I have to want to leave the ground
I’ve fallen hard
But I’ve been loved
And in the end it all works out
My faith has conquered fear

On my way here
No guarantees
I believed that I would find
An open door or a light
To lead me to the other side
I guess that is why

On my way here
Where I am now
I’ve learned to fly
I have to want to leave the ground
I’ve fallen hard
But I‘ve been loved
And in the end it all works out

Where I am now
I’ve learned to fly
I have to want to leave the ground
I’ve fallen hard
But I‘ve been loved
And in the end it all works out
My faith has conquered fear
On my way here
