"Are you gonna go my way?" as written by Craig David Ross and Lenny Kravitz....
I was born long ago
I am the chosen I'm the one
I have come to save the day
And I won't leave until I'm done

So that's why you've got to try
You got to breath and have some fun
Though I'm not paid I play this game
And I won't stop until I'm done

But what I really want to know is
Are you gonna go my way?
And I got to got to know

I don't know why we always cry
This we must leave and get undone
We must engage and rearrange
And turn this planet back to one

So tell me why we got to die
And kill each other one by one
We've got to love and rub-a-dub
We've got to dance and be in love

But what I really want to know is
Are you gonna go my way?
And I got to got to know

Are you gonna go my way?
'Cause baby I got to know
Yeah

    General CommentI heard it's about religion too. I like the way he wrote it though because it doesn't have a preaching kind of tone and can be taken anyway. Works well for someone who's not Christian like myself. Gotta love Lenny!

    General CommentFinally. (Well, 11 years ago, but regardless.)

    Someone has the presence of mind to write a song about Jesus that truly preaches Jesus's message. All Christian music I have experienced is positive and uplifting, but I think this song is a purer Christian song, because it does not talk about Jesus excessively, instead it simply preaches Jesus's message throughout.

    General Commentits a really good song, but im pretty sure its a knockoff/remake of voodoo chile/voodoo child (slight return) by hendrix. i too used to hate the fact that he was so much like hendrix, but think, 40 years from now people make look back at lenny as being the 2nd hendrix, ya never know!

    General CommentI don`t think Lenny copys Jimmy Hendrix. He`s just being himself.
    I heard in an interview that the inspiration for his clothes, was from his moms wardrope lol.

    General CommentYeah, he's not copying Hendrix for god's sake. Pretty cool song and the references to Jesus are obvious. Good for him. Noone should be knocking Jesus OR Kravitz for that matter :-p
