I wanted to know the definition of We're on our way?

Does it mean being together? or We do stuff together?

There's another site on the Stack Exchange called English Language Learners where this might have been asked. –  J.R. Sep 13 '13 at 10:01

@J.R.Yeah that's better place :) –  Sky Sep 13 '13 at 10:15
English Language Learners is not a replacement for a dictionary, though. Always consult a dictionary first. That's precisely what dictionaries are there for. oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/… –  RegDwigнt Sep 13 '13 at 10:25
@RegDwighт - Naturally, I agree with you, but it's worth conceding that this particular query might be hard to answer with a dictionary. –  J.R. Sep 13 '13 at 10:49

It means being together along with the sense of a journey or movement. This can be an actual journey from one place to another:

We're on our way to school.

Or a it can be a metaphorical journey, at the start of a project or career. A band which gets a record contract might say:

"We're on our way!" (to fame and stardom).
