Paul Weller – Going My Way

Paul Weller is an English singer-songwriter and musician. Starting out with the band The Jam (1976–82), Weller branched out to a more soulful style with The Style Council (1983–89), before establishing himself as a successful solo artist in 1991. Despite widespread critical recognition as a singer, lyricist and guitarist, Weller has remained a national rather than an international star, and much of his songwriting is rooted in British culture. He is also the principal figure of the 1970s and 1980s mod revival, and is often referred to as The Modfather.

This tender love song was inspired by Paul Weller’s wife. He told The Sun: “it could have been a very straight-ahead love song because it starts off with solo voice and piano, but then it’s got all these little twists and changes in it.” Paul Weller married in 2010 his former backing singer Hannah Andrews. She gave birth to their baby twin sons Bowie and John-Paul on January 14, 2012.

“It’s a straightforward love song, but it’s got some other little abstract bits in it as well. That line, ‘Time passing by, time on the wind’… That’s just laziness to be honest with you (grins). I couldn’t think of anything else to report. But, I mean, I could count on two hands, or maybe three hands, the amount of my songs that I think are absolutely perfect – I couldn’t have done anything different, I wouldn’t change a thing. ‘Going My Way’ is one of them.” @Songfacts.

Paul Weller – Going My Way Lyrics:
Into your heart, Into your heart, I’m running away
I wanna stay with you

You following me, am I following you?
I don’t care anyway
As long as you stay with me

Many hearts were broke on the way
It gets hard to say
Smile a while at our lives yet unseen
It’s the world at play

As if by chance, they could tell our fate
These tea leaf traces on empty plates

Sparkle and shine
Bird on the wing
Are you going my way?
Going my way with me

Play by my side
Stay with the beat
Are you going my way?
Going my way with me
With me

Many hearts were broke on the way
It gets hard to say
Smile a while at our lives yet unseen
It’s the world at play

Wonder, oh wonder
Where will we go next?

Time slipping by, Time on the wind
Are you going my way?
Going my way with me

Am I following you, you following me?
I don’t care anyway
As long as you stay… with me, With me

I’m so glad I found you now
Flying through the universe
Floatin’ on the sound around
Gone today but never gone

Flying through the universe
I’m so glad I found you now
Floatin’ on the sound around
Flying through the universe
