Through Explanation you See the Lyrics in a New Light

In September, Calvin Harris released a new song called „My Way“. He claimed that this will probably be the last song he released in 2016. He wants to concentrate on making good music. However, there is much speculation about the meaning of the song, since it sounds at first like a message to his ex-girlfriend.

My Way

Why wait to say, at least I did it my way
Lie awake, two faced
But in my heart I understand
I made my move and it was all about you
Now I feel so far removed

You were the one thing in my way
You were the one thing in my way
You were the one thing in my way
You were the one thing in my way
You were the one thing in my way
You were the one thing in my way

My way, oh way, oh way, oh way
My way, oh way, oh way, oh way
My way, oh way, oh way, oh way
My way, my way, my way

Why wait to say, at least I did it my way
Lie awake, two faced
But in my heart I understand
I made my move and it was all about you
Now I feel so far removed

You were the one thing in my way
You were the one thing in my way
You were the one thing in my way
You were the one thing in my way
You were the one thing in my way
You were the one thing in my way

My way, oh way, oh way, oh way
My way, oh way, oh way, oh way
My way, oh way, oh way, oh way
My way, my way, my way

You were the one thing in my way
You were the one thing in my way
You were the one thing in my way
You were the one thing in my way
You were the one thing in my way
You were the one thing in my way

My way, oh way, oh way, oh way
My way, oh way, oh way, oh way
My way, oh way, oh way, oh way
My way, oh way, oh way, oh way
My way, oh way, oh way, oh way
My way, oh way, oh way, oh way

My Way Interpretation

Usually, Calvin Harris collaborates with vocalists for the lyrics, but this time he used his own vocals, implying that the song means a lot to him. In an interview, he mentioned that the song is about breaking out of a bad situation that no longer suits you, with someone holding you back. It can be a job or relationship. However, Calvin Harris came up with the idea when he left a grocery store in Scotland he was working for. While trying to move to London and following his passion of making music, he was held back by his circumstances.

The “story” that is told through the song is vague and allows different interpretations. Listeners are able to apply it to their own situations.
