  • You can't walk the streets at night
    You're way too short to get on this ride
    No I'm not, no I'm not, you tryna tell me that I
    I gotta be home when the street lights glow?
    You can't watch your TV show
    I will watch what I wanna watch
    No, won't listen to you, do what I wanna do

    And I will walk this road ahead
    One hundred miles on my hands
    Do I need to show you?
    Guess I gotta show you
    And if you don't believe me now
    I'll flip the whole world upside down
    Do I need to show you?
    Guess I gotta show you

    Watch me swim across this lake
    Fly through the sky in my Superman cape
    Watch me walk across this wire
    Tip-toe through the coals of a blazing fire
    Watch me fly this kite in the rain
    I'll jump rope with my ball and chain
    Come by and knock on my house of cards
    If it falls I'll rebuild it from the start
    I won't listen to you, do what I wanna do

    And I will walk this road ahead
    One hundred miles on my hands
    Do I need to show you?
    Guess I gotta show you
    And if you don't believe me now
    I'll flip the whole world upside down
    Do I need to show you?
    Guess I gotta show you

    Do I really gotta show you now? Really, really, really, gotta show you now?
    Do I really gotta spell it out? I-T, I spell it out
    If you really wanna see me now? Watch me walk across the clouds
    I don't know what you heard about, listen to me yell it loud
    Do I really gotta show you now? Really, really, really, gotta show you now?
    Do I really gotta spell it out? I-T, I spell it out
    If you really wanna see me now? Watch me walk across the clouds
    I don't know what you heard about, see that door I'll knock it down

    And I will walk this road ahead
    Hundred miles on my hands
    Do I need to show you?
    Guess I gotta show you
    And if you don't believe me now
    I'll flip the whole world upside down
    And do I need to show you?
    Guess I gotta show you

    Do I really gotta show you now? Really, really, really, gotta show you now?
    Do I really gotta spell it out? I-T, I spell it out
    If you really wanna see me now? Watch me walk across the clouds
    Do I need to show you? Guess I gotta show you Writer/s: IDO ZMISHLANY, MARTIN TEREFE, SCOTT FRIEDMAN, SHAWN MENDES
