Eminem feat. Beyoncé – Walk On Water (Lyrics)

Lyrics “Walk On Water” by Eminem feat. Beyoncé

I walk on water
But I ain’t no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes

Why, are expectations so high
Is it the bar I set
My arms, I stretch, but I can’t reach
A far cry from it, or it’s in my grasp, but as
Soon as I grab, squeeze

I lose my grip like the flying trapeze
Into the dark, I plummet
Now the sky’s blackening
I know the marks hide butter
Flies rip apart my stomach

Knowing that no matter what bars I come with
You’re gonna hark, gripe, and that’s a hard Vicodin to swallow
So I scrap these, as pressure increases, like khakis
I feel the ice cracking, because

I walk on water
But I ain’t no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes

It’s the curse of the standard
That the first of the Mathers disk set
Always in search of the verse that I haven’t spit yet
Will this step just be another misstep

To tarnish whatever the legacy, love or respect
I’ve garnered the rhyme has to be perfect
The delivery flawless and it always feels like I’m hitting the mark
‘TIl I go sit in the car, listen, and pick it apart
Like, this shit is garbage

God’s given me all this
Still I feel no different regardless
Kids look to me like as a god, this is retarded
If only they knew, it’s a facade and it’s exhaustive

And I try to not listen to nonsense
But if you b*tches are trying to strip me of my confidence
Mission accomplished, I’m not God-sent
Nas, Rakim, Pac, B.I.G., James Todd Smith and I’m not Prince

I walk on water
But I ain’t no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes

‘Cause I’m only human, just like you
Making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
I don’t think you should believe in me the way you do
‘Cause I’m terrified to let you down, oh

It’s true, I’m a Rubik’s
A beautiful mess
At times juvenile, yes
I goof and I jest
A flawed human I guess

But I’m doing my best
To not ruin your expectations and meet ’em
But first, the, Speedom verse
Now, Big Sean, he’s going too fast
Is he gonna shout or curse out his mom

There was a time I had the world by the balls, eating out my palm
Every album, song I was spazzin’ the f*ck out on
And now I’m getting clowned and frowned on
But the only one who’s looking down on me now that matters now’s Deshaun

Am I lucky to be around this long
Begs the question, though
Especially after the methádone
As yesterday fades and the Dresden home is burnt to the ground
And all that’s left of my house is lawn

The crowds are gone
And it’s time to wash out the blonde
Sales decline, the curtains drawn
They’re closing the set
I’m still poking my head out from behind

And everyone has doubt, remind
Now take your best rhyme, outdo it
Now do it a thousand times
Now let the world tell you no one gives a f*ck about your rhymes

And as I grow outta sight
‘Cause how do I, ever let this mic go without a fight
When I made a f*ckin’ tightrope outta twine
But when I do fall from these heights, though I’ll be fine
I won’t pout or cry or spiral down or whine
But I’ll decide if it’s my final bow this time around ’cause…

I walk on water
But I ain’t no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes

Cause I’m only human, just like you
Making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
I don’t think you should believe in me the way you do
Cause I’m terrified to let you down, oh

If I walked on water, I would drown
Cause I’m just a man
But as long as I got a mic, I’m got light
Cause you and I are not alike b*tch, I wrote.. Stan…
