Vincent Bueno was set to represent Austria at Eurovision 2020, but he’ll have to wait an extra year before he can slay that stage. Thankfully COVID-19 isn’t slowing Vincent’s productivity as he’s already back with new music.

Scroll down for the “Walking on Water” lyrics

Walking on Water

Vincent’s newest single “Walking on Water” is the follow-up to his Eurovision 2020 song “Alive“. In a conversation with Wiwibloggs, Vincent explains how he and his producer Davey created the foundations for the song about 18 months ago.

The team had two songs waiting on the shelf for the follow-up. During an Instagram Live, Vincent gave a little sneak peek of each of them, and both Vincent and his fans decided that “Walking on Water” would be a better fit given the situation we’re currently living through. As he sings: ”The world has never been colder”.

“It’s the right track to release in these difficult times,” Vincent says. He wants to inspire people with his message of hope and love. It’s a meaningful song about believing in something that might seem impossible at first glance.

You’ve no idea how excited I am to give you this one. My new single “Walking On Water” out this Friday 19.06. MIDNIGHT Thoughts: I think in these times we’re living in today this song is the most appropriate to release right now. I don’t do this to be politically correct but rather to inspire you and share a song of hope in these times of racism, political injustice and a global pandemic. There’s still hope no matter what we’re confronted with everyday. I hope you can feel the uplifting spirit in this song. . . . . . . .

Vincent Bueno – “Walking On Water”

Lyrics: “Walking on Water” – Vincent Bueno

None in the world could replace you
Though they might try to erase you
We know who’s up
We know who’s down
Still they do try to disgrace you
I have never been bolder
The world has never been colder
I might be strong
I might be weak
Still I depend on your shoulder
None in this world could ever bring
Bring such a beauty
Every day I wanna say how much you mean to me
It’s not a coincidence so it is my duty
Let me do it right now
Let me do it right now

Oh oh let me do it now
Let me do it right now
Let me write it down
I can’t do it solo
I need you right now
I need you right here

Every time you smile at me
I feel so high
Every mile you walk with me
Feels like so fly
With you by my side
I’m walking on water
Walking on water
On water
You’re making me

Ohhhh
On water

Ohhhh
On water

Ohhhh
On water

Walking on water
On water

They talk about the impossible
They try to stop the unstoppable
You do not need any help
From a monocle
You got your eyes on the prodigal
Me in particular
Word
Me in the secular world
Me havin’ similar dirt
Like many articular nerds
I need the water to wash off it first
Quench off my thirst
Ooohh

No matter the cause imma shine
No matter what I did imma climb
I’m going for your heart
Imma dive
Into a massive ocean of light
No matter what they do imma rise
I don’t need that bag of supplies
All I want is you in my life
‘Coz it is you that’s making me high

Oh oh let me do it now
Let me do it right now
Let me write it down
I can’t do it solo
I need you right now
I need you right here

Every time you smile at me
I feel so high
Every mile you walk with me
Feels like so fly
With you by my side
I’m walking on water
Walking on water
On water
You’re making me

Ohhhh
On water

Ohhhh
On water

Ohhhh
On water

Walking on water
On water

You’re making me dance
Like I’d been dancin’ on the water
If a storm would come
I’m tappin’ on the water
You make me believe
That I’ve been running heavy waters
On the water
(Walking on water)
On water

It’s not as smooth or accessible as “Alive” for me.

It’s not bad IMO. But still too “American” for me.

Way better than “Alive”.. He should send something like this and not another Bruno Mars’ soundalike (is this even a word?). Stefania also released a snippet of her new song and it sounds way better than Supergirl… I have faith in these two and Blas to send something better next year cause they clearly can..

They’re both Filipino so maybe that’s just a style shared by Filipino R’n’B artists all have.

Besides, Bruno Mars does different styles in all of his songs so they don’t sound all the same. Hebhinself have been accused of copying other artists for whatever reason.

He’s not Hawaiian per se. That term usually refers to the indigenous community who live in the state of Hawaii.
