Hey mister, how are you walking on water?
I hope can you show me cause I really want to
walk on the water exactly like you do?
show me the steps that I need to go through

and I’ll be Usain Bolt in this thang
bolting to whatever you saying
One wish, permit me to ask it
before my address becomes a casket
maybe it might seem a little drastic
make me new like Saul in Damascus
I know there’s no ‘u’ in me,
but you know I need more You in me.

I wanna walk (your way)
I want to talk (your way)
I want to live (your way)
I want to love (your way)

okay so you say if want to imitate
I just for keep my eyes on you and need to have a little faith
it sounds so easy, let me try? let me try?
make I try? ei I dey try!
look at me now, look at my feet
standing on Atlantic street
used to be scared to be ambitious that was my condition,
I put little on my plate cause I was scared of broken dishes.

now I’m walking (your way)
now I’m talking (your way)
now I’m living (your way)
now I’m loving (your way)

I am good now, you can go now
Kwaku running the show now
I’m good now, you can go now
Kwaku running the show now
now I’m all grown, walking on my own
today I walk on water, tomorrow I make my throne

no wait. what’s happening? what’s happening?
where did you go? I need you back again!
I need you back to tell me what to do
please use your pencil to draw me closer to you.
and this time I’ll use pencil to write down what I think
and I will write down all of your plans and orders in ink

I carry my being like Jack Sparrow
Fooled by my feelings of pride in my marrow
If following you is right, I never want go left
if following you is wrong, go ahead and give me an F
so long as I am still in this atmosphere
the belly of the whale will be my utmost fear

cause I wanna walk (your way)
I want to talk (your way)
I want to live your way
I want to love your way
