Eminem - Walk On Water Lyrics

[Beyoncé (Eminem):]
I walk on water
But I ain't no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes (fuck)

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 flyin' trapeze
Into the dark I plummet, now the sky's blackenin'
I know the mark's high, butterflies rip apart my stomach
Knowin' that no matter what bars I come with
You're gonna harp, gripe, and
That's a hard Vicodin to swallow, so I scrap these
As pressure increases like khakis
I feel the ice cracking, because

[Beyoncé (Eminem):]
I walk on water
But I ain't no Jesus
(It's the curse of the, it's the curse of the)
I walk on water (shit)
But only when it freezes

It's the curse of the standard, that the first of the Mathers disc 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 hittin' 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 as a god, this is retarded
If only they knew, it's a facade and it's exhaustive
And I try not to listen to nonsense
But if you bitches are tryin' 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, so

I walk on water
But I ain't no Jesus
I walk on water
(It's true, I'm a Rubik's, it's true)
But only when it freezes
(It's true)

'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 that 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 doin' 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 fuck out on
And now I'm gettin' clowned and frowned on
But the only one who's looking down on
Me that matters now's DeShaun
Am I lucky to be around this long?
Begs the question though
Especially after the methadone
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 from out behind
And everyone who has doubt, remind
Now take your best rhyme, outdo it, now do it a thousand times
Now let 'em tell ya the world no longer cares or gives a fuck about your rhymes
And as I grow outta sight, outta mind, I might go outta mine
'Cause how do I ever let this mic go without a fight
When I made a fuckin' 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
I've been making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
I don't think you should believe in me the way that 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 godlike
So me and you are not alike
Bitch, I wrote "Stan"

    Holy fuck that one spoke to my soul

  6. Bransen

    Such a good song

    I mean, it's different, but it's still good. And full of emotion - not just anger or annoyance.

  8. Leonard Silva

    It’s a damn shame that this song isn’t loved the way it should be loved

  9. Isla Girl

    Beautiful 🥰

  10. Soroush Lotfi

    3:16 just broke my heart 😔 R.I.P Proof...

  11. Giulia Arena

    Stunningly beautiful!!

  12. Kunal Bahuguna


  13. Vukašin Stan

    Bitch I wrote Stan

  14. Dave 4EVR

    Critics call this trash for views, some fans turned against him, but this song is deep. This is also criticized cuz this songs is too deep for them to understand. So let em criticize this song, but this song remains as one of his best works. Revival is one of my favorites.


    Beyonce gets more angry every time she singa

  16. Yash sinha

    Revival was made by Marshall Mathers that's why people are hating on this album

  17. 15K Subs In 2020 Challenge

    If you’re listening to this in 2020, you have a good taste for music.

  18. Courtney Hogue-Charters

    bitch I wrote Stan

  19. The WahMaster

    Bitch I wrote stan is the funniest and worst way you could end a song

  20. Derek Scott Carlisle

    derekscottcarlisle my videos ft.Eminem Music

  21. Mercedes S

    Oh Em, if you could read this. If there would only be a way to let you know how much you meant to me through these 14 years I've been listening to you. If you could only see yourself through the eyes of one of your Stans. I wish I could count the days I had the feeling your lyrics saved me. The strenght you gave me, it is something I will never be able to thank you enough for and to hear you spitting bars like this, hurts my guts. The only artist they can compare you to, is you. Who ever comes after you, will be again compared to you. Nobody can take that from you, not even yourself.

  22. Crisantechell Muse

    Damn, Em lookin at his dead self in the frozen depths like looking at Stan who drowned himself. It’s like if Stanley got his wish, to finally be who he could only see himself to be. Too bad Stan’s dead. Good thing the mic isn’t.

  23. reyes adrian daniel

    True emotions
    Only EM can do this

  24. Pt Ceo

    Is this a sequel of phenomenal?

    I love all of the Eminem songs

  28. Chioma Ubani


  29. udasan

    Didn't realize it at first, but in the middle of the song, I cried listening to this. I'm glad Eminem didn't give up and yes, he's the one who wrote the epic STAN!!!

  30. Dallas Inc

    OK. Put to the side that I love this song, and who ever doesn't was not really listening to it.

    Was I the only one that laughed at 4:24. Couldn't help myself.

  31. Liisa

    This song feeds all my emotions at once,I love you Em❤️❤️❤️

  32. Astral and Yuri

    the song is called fuck this shit and it's about being tired of shooting videos

  33. Trevor Perry

    This song feels like shakespear or something instead of rap. Strange, but i like it. Why havent i ever heard this?

    CodeName Ralph

    That is because quality takes a lot of time. I'm glad you discovered this artwork.

  34. M Savina

    Peace n love to you Em. ❤️

  35. Margaret Young

    What a beautiful & profound song

  36. δr. ցαmεr σrκο

    Real music

  37. Cristian Alzate

    Does anyone know what are the blue boots he is wearing in the video?

  38. B Kat K

    You may not enjoy the beats of 'Revival ', but you'll never strip Marshall Mathers of his brilliance or talent. This was never be looked down upon by Deshaun(Proof). He understands the beauty, like those who took the time to do the same

  39. Amanda Knox

    People who trash this masterpiece are the ones who worship drake, who half the time makes no sense 🤦🏻‍♀️

  40. Thodoris Penkov

    Tupac god of rap/eminem The KING !

  41. SJ S

  44. Mercedes sandoval

    🦋 ♥️🐰 !!!

  45. LeeAnne Montes

    One of the most personal, honest, heartfelt pieces of music I've ever heard from a performer.
    If you don't get it, it's your loss

  46. Killer Man

    For those saying Revival was trash: Shut the fuck up and suck a fucking dick.

  47. Aydendraws

    Ngl I only listened to this song for beyoncé

  48. Melanie Murczak

    Wenn bei mir die Blätter flogen.... Hahahahaha. Ich habe mit einer elektrischen Schreibmaschine angefangen mit Korrekturband, dann waren keine Korrektur ändern mehr in den Maschinen. Lieber etwas langsamer aber korrekt.

  49. Qaneta Asim


  50. Amanda Greenwood

    Never think he can any do any better than some cert as in song and every time he blows my mind again and it's crazy how I feel like he and I went through all the same shit at the s as me time crazy and he us a master at his craft MUSIC POETRY TOUCHING LIVES AND CHANGING LIVES !!!

  51. Axle Wavey

    This would have 100 million if Beyoncé was in it. 🔥 Why didn’t she come for the video? 😡

    Em. IDK where I been the last year's but I just heard this song for the first time yesterday. This is my 5th time hearing in. It's beautiful. I had no idea how you felt. Thank you for telling us. I love you. Me and my family grew up with you through the same type shit. To see you holding it down in YOUR HOME TOO makes me proud like a sister would be. If this reaches you I hope you know that your appreciated, loved, valued, and enough. Rest if you need. 🦆 Up. We'll respect you no matter what. 🦆 anyone who disagrees. Love your face. :) Beyonce, you killed this like Sunday morning girl.


    1:25 does this reminds of Oscar 2020.

    Real fans will know.

  58. Abraham C

    damn idk why but my first time really listening to this song, makes me sad for him

  59. Chovke Coments

    I really liked this song.

  60. JustinNettlesVlogs

    Em has multiple deep songs that is really over thought about Nd people wanna trash it but in all reality it’s because no one believes he was trying to change and when he did people hated it so now he has returned to his old ways and now the rap game Nd well everyone is gonna get it


    he made this song for us stan delivering his personal issues dont listen to negative responses..

  62. ChillPill7777777

    Bitch, I wrote Stan!

  63. Jackie Hageberg

    Love Eminem, always have, always will

  64. David e Helena

    Murilo é Deus!!!

  65. osedebamen aigbedion

    This is the most underrated song of all time.

  66. STICC


  67. Joshua Hardy

    One of Marshell's best songs. If you don't understand why listen closer.

  68. Skitzify Music


  69. Justin Allen

    So I grew up jamming Eminem I know all his songs verbatim. Kobe just passed recently, he was my favourite basketball player and that got me thinking...I’m gonna RUE the day Slim passes 💔

  70. Christian Friesen

    This is why I love Eminem. He raps about some real shit while all other rappers sing about is money and drugs and women. May not be as catchy but this shit hits harder.

  71. yojo joseph

    He is not Jesus but surely a Genius

  72. Ray Justin Sun God

    My favorite song.

    I am Jesus and my brother Set is attacking Eminem.


  73. surmar

    Revival is not whack

    Christian Stokes

    Preach bro! It’s a masterpiece. I bought on vinyl last year

  74. •Shîning Løve•

    Just the emotion and expression he's using the sadness the pain and everything, I know it's 2020 now but damn still hits hard. Hope all's good

  75. Valeria Shabani

    King of rap👑💪❤❤

  76. Matt Jensen

    I know people hate but this fuc***g album is a masterpiece by our Shakespeare!! #revivalmasterpiece

  77. Paulo André


  78. Jordann

    I just realized at the end of the song he says. "Bitch I wrote Stan"

  79. melanie anne shaw

    Best song ever

  80. Capital Murder

    Great song just wish Skylar would of sang it on the record.

  81. Czan Joshi

    The bbc radio 1 live version is even better than this with skyler gray 😍😍

  82. Kelly Grant

    When people grow in there craft and be blessed with a message it would be hard for people to understand where he is coming from cause you haven't changed! Em is an amazing Artist I love his growth and will be forever a fan cause he stand with alot of the GREAT RAPPERS 2 PAC, BIG ETC HIS IS IN MY TOP 5

  83. Alyssa Fox

    He's the next Legend

  84. Elisa Schwandt

    I'm only human without you, I'll be with you til the end, with you, i feel like a queen, no men or women for us in between, devoted to you for the rest of time, i will not turn on you at the drop of a dime. Bitch i wrote Stan, lets go get a tan ;-)

  86. April Martin

    God loves you

  87. April Martin

    Nice we all need to find God peace out

  88. Christus Rex

    u r a leader...not a wife beater...detroit motor city....trump has no pity...let them drink lead...with a concrete bed...a speech doesn't need to rhyme...tell michigan the time...say detroit is mine

  89. Ling Lai

    The fact he started revival with the word "why?" And finished it with "I know now" just shows why he is the best in rap

  90. Arthur Greve

    Hand of God on us now wow

  91. Arthur Greve

    Grand rapids flow through my veins I rearange

  92. Arthur Greve

    Angels Jesus ease us

  94. Andre Beswick

    I dnt care what no one says....EMINEM IS A FUCKING LEGEND

  95. Pel Synergy

  96. King Wangno99


  97. Katelyn

    I know that everyone has their own opinions but, how can you call this trash if this came from his heart? Like I get he changed but he’s gone through stuff and this song explains it.

  98. Ambigram.L

    Here to see why revival was slept on
