"On My Way Here" is a song written by Ryan Tedder, Hunter Davis and Chris Faulk and is the title track for Clay Aiken's fourth album On My Way Here.

The song is about how the lessons we learn growing up shape us into the adults we become. This struck a chord with Aiken and the song became the inspiration for the album's theme.[1] Aiken said "I thought if we could find songs along those lines, that deal with my life over the past five years and what I've learned from my experiences, it would be a great concept for an album."
