Michael Kiwanuka - Worry Walks Beside Me Lyrics



Worry walks beside me every day
They say I should run but it's comin' my way
I'll be doin' fine if you leave me behind

It's coming all over under my skin
Says if I follow I will die like a king
I'll be doin' fine if you leave me behind

What will it take to believe I can run
What will it take? When will I be done?
Oh Lord, I've been trying

I find him standing here all the time
I find him trying to steal all that's mine, oh
I'll be doin' fine if you leave me behind

What will it take to believe I can run
What will it take? When will I be done?
Oh Lord, I've been trying

What will it take to be free again?
I wanna leave this behind
What will it take just to see again?
All this is making me blind

What will it take to believe I can run?
What will it take? When will I be done?
Oh Lord, I've been trying

How does it feel to be flying away?
How does it feel to believe today?
Oh Lord, I've been trying

Worry walks beside me everyday

    chills down my spine

  3. Sing Your Style Studio

    Worry walks beside me every day

    They say I should run but it's comin' my way

    I'll be doin' fine if you leave me behind



    It's coming all over under my skin

    Says if I follow I will die like a king

    I'll be doin' fine if you leave me behind



    What will it take to believe I can run

    What will it take? When will I be done?

    Oh Lord, I've been trying



    I find him standing here all the time

    I find him trying to steal all that's mine, oh

    I'll be doin' fine if you leave me behind



    What will it take to believe I can run

    What will it take? When will I be done?

    Oh Lord, I've been trying



    What will it take to be free again?

    I wanna leave this behind

    What will it take just to see again?

    All this is making me blind



    What will it take to believe I can run?

    What will it take? When will I be done?

    Oh Lord, I've been trying



    How does it feel to be flying away?

    How does it feel to believe today?

    Oh Lord, I've been trying



    Worry walks beside me everyday

    Jan Slowhand

    Thanks for these beatiful lyrics but it should be" I will dine like a king" not die.

  4. Helenserendipity

    so sad concert sold out in belgium

  5. Daryl Wathen

    And people say modern music has no soul

  6. Daryl Wathen

    I feel like if Michael came out with his music 70 - 80 years ago, he would be praised as one of the generation's best.

  35. Jon C Wolf

    I have to laugh, Mr. Michael Kiwanuka do you write your own music? Is it not humorous that your "love and hate " song seems to be your most popular, yet you know in your heart of hearts that you have other songs that are more meaningful and artistic. Why is that? I am not saying this in a condescending way! I laugh, because I know I will never be able to fully understand. What so appeals to one or two or maybe even more will not necessarily appeal to the collective as a whole! I like it, if there was a key to this mystery, then, where would artistic motivation be? please keep writing, it is inspirational!!!

    your mother's favorite.

    it isn't that hard to understand. the majority tends to enjoy the shallow side of the pool. It's safe, doesn't require much effort, and frankly, a lot of folks are consumed with shallow conflicts (or handle their conflicts in a shallow manner). Those who veer off to the deeper end, may see things a bit different. I think that has always been true to life.

  36. Alejandro SD

    Me encanta

  49. james fatari

  51. Kos Kuzma

    This song is killing my mind!!

  52. Mint Green

    soul ,soul and more soul ;) 

  53. SuperLennyBenny

    Favorite! 

  54. Joseph F

    A "Me and the Devil Blues" feel to it.
    Sounds like Robert Johnson's style a bit.

  55. Joseph F

    By just looking at him I knew this would be great music. I don't know how.

  56. SANCTUARY

    Why is this man not massively famous?

    Dadayi33

    Good question, I just adore his music dont know whats wrong with human ears nowadays

    Ivan Lendl

    It's great music but it's not commercial music. Ever since the Telecommunications Act of 1996 there are basically 3 corporations controlling radio station play lists. If your music sounds different at all or is even produced differently they deem the song as not commercially viable. It's sad. And its why the airwaves are filled with bad pop & rap.

    Callie Smole

    I have an opinion that wouldn't be popular.

    MICHAEL VILANKULU

    i havethe same question

    Slavic Power

    because obviously this music in not for masses ?!!??!

  57. D ed

    WHAT A SONG, mate!

  58. Carlos De Santana

    This guy is a legend. Can't get enough of his music. Hope he won't be corrupted. U guys might want check "home again". Many people will have a natural connection with this song specially to people like me who live abroad for years now.

  59. Mo Dumas

    One of those "Rainy Day in a Bluesy Mood" songs.

  60. Miguel Roca

    I love this song

  61. Ed Steeley

    He will take America by storm... he reminds me so much of Otis Redding..with a mix of Marvin Gaye. The arrangements are straight out the Stax studio traditions. Would love to see him live... in Otis' home town of Macon, Georgia..where he would really be appreciated. Enjoyed this cut and grateful to find him on the web...this very day.

    W I L L I E

    Ed Steeley Stop saying what the others have said before. Otis was great, but this is Mr. Kiwanuka's era. Don't compare, everybody is unique.

  62. Pablo Enciso

    es interesante ver como el recuerdo de Gary Moore aparece en este artista.
    why Gary Moore come to my mind ;) Soul hugs!!

  63. Pablo Castillejos

    My favorite song of this album... this guy is simply amazing.

  64. vertscool

    holy soul!

  65. thatperfectmoment

    He's making the mathematical symbol for *not equal to* as in they are not the same. Psychological issues are not the same as mental illness. Many people, pretty much all people, have some psychological issues, they are not all mentally ill. A mental illness is like bipolar, schizophrenia, border line personality disorder. A psychological issue can be many things, such as a fear of getting close to people, an imbalanced level of shame, or self doubt.

    I agree, this is unrelated to people's taste

  66. D.R. H.

    this is my jam

  67. SPartanFTW

    Not familiar with =/= please elaborate.

    I'm assuming that you're referencing to them meaning the same thing?...because they do.

  68. SPartanFTW

    Firstly don't bring mental illnesses into a "why did they dislike? " comment.
    It's not even funny, nor is it an acceptable thing to joke about. Presuming this was a joke.
    If it wasn't then , everyone is entitled to their own opinion. You're gong to get a dislike or two on every video. Just deal with it. Not everyone has the same taste of music as you or me. God those comments are getting so old.
    ^^ as are these ones trying to explain it to the less intelligent ones. Such as yourself.

  69. mikkel wolff

    Who disliked this, you have serious psychological issues......

  70. Corneliasomniare

    Girl, you are not obligated to follow Annie's path. I bet you are beutiful just the way you are. Don't let those terrible thoughts be stronger than you, you own your life! Have faith in yourself, and the things that make you truly happy. And ask for help if you need it: the fear won't take you anywhere. I know it's very hard, but you're not alone, really. I've through a lot of sutff by myself, and that way is always more difficult. What will it take? A lot of courage. But freedom is worth it

  71. Ellie Paisley

    Annie walks beside me... creeping closer... I don't know whether she's a friend or an enemy... does a friend steal your food and take over your thoughts? I have lost nearly 2 stone already if you include how much I've grown since all this started. I am not anorexic, but the word lingers over me like a sword at the dinner table and in my mum's eyes... can anyone help?

  72. bs sb

    a crowded desert, theres an oxymoron if i ever did see one

  73. Jessica pres

    his music makes me cry too!

  74. Kedy Acuña

    Fuck! feel so gay! but i think that i´m love this guy!

  75. Aagateuuh kiwami

    i loveeeeeeeeee

  76. Janne I

    live in amsterdam
    so much tears

  77. Telmo Llanga.

    are you a LOL cat?

  78. ganwoke

    Just discovered his songs today. WOW!
    Has somewhat of a Ben Harper meets Gregg Allman quality.

  79. GiuliEtna

    bellissima.
    One of my favourite... love him!

  80. Charmian O'Brien

    Only love and gratitude. I am moved to tears.

  81. pilar valentina

    to the people who say today there's no good music like before, i'd just shut them up and make them listen to this man

  82. Alizastack

    i just want to cuddle him
    he looks cuddly

  83. aloaloa aloaloa

    flawless

  84. Janeandhound

    amazing artist. classic! and much needed. thanks for uploading this. had chosen another and 'won't play in your country.' whaaat?! oh but I got this. thank you!

  85. Sav B

    Hey i think your band is great i was wondering if it would be cool if i did some of my poetry over one of your songs

  86. Jose María Muñoz Gaitán

    Yesterday I was walking down the street listening to music in my MP4 and this song played. It had been like months since I last listened to it, and I cried. It was the first time in my life a song made me cry for no reason at all, I wasn't even thinking specifically about her.

  87. porkymor1

    anyone knows where i can get an instrumental version of this?

  88. Ellie Paisley

    I love this man, he sends shivvers all over my body and a song in my heart. <3

  89. tez

    2:50- 3:35 ...heaven !!!!!!! !.. the composition is flawless

  90. Adrian M

    he did perform on letterman a few weeks ago if remember correctly.

  91. Susan Schindler

    Maybe ELLEN would put him on? I'll post on her site.

  92. Arnaldo Figueroa

    he has a sound quality reminiscent of buddy guy

  93. Carpe Diem

    I find it hard to believe that only 386,815 people have seen this. I've been listening to this guy for sometime now, i'm waiting for the world to jump on this amazing train of beautiful music. Needs to have a spotlight on the late show or something.

  94. soundthatkills

    lordy may...this is real music

  95. Nicole

    This gave me goosebumps. Smooth, soulful, and gorgeous.

  96. sandra camurca

    So, so great! I saw this huge artist yesterday in Oeiras - Portugal and can't stop listening to him! Great singer, great composer, great musician and in stage even bigger with the band.
