He's just an ordinary man
Never gonna live forever
So he takes it where he can

Too many nights without a day
For the sake of being clever
He almost lost his way
He always thought that he could fly
Till he was shot down from the sky
You can't walk on water - don't try
You can't walk on water - my my

They say there's ice inside his veins
The man of a thousand faces
Silver spoons and golden chains
He thought his heart was made of steel
But it never started pounding
Till they strapped him to the wheel

He always thought that he could fly
Till he was shot down from the sky
No matter what you try
You can't walk on water - my my
You can't walk on water - don't try

Somebody said we'll make him strong
He can give us all the answers
Tell us right and show us wrong

If you believe it, it's no lie
And there is an end to summer
'Cause the winter makes it die

He never looked above his head
And so he missed the things they said
He always thought that he could fly
Until they shot him from the sky

Chorus
No matter how you try
You can't walk on water
Can't burn the sun
You can't walk on water
Not anyone

You can't, you can't, you can't
You can't, you can't walk on water
