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 hug 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. Thanks to Jim Wear for correcting these lyrics. Writer(s): LENNY KRAVITZ, CRAIG ROSS. L. Lenny Kravitz Lyrics.

The song that helped make Kravitz a ‘90s superstar, Are You Gonna Go My Way is the lead single & title song from Lenny Kravitz’s third album. The song topped Billboard’s Album Rock Tracks chart and on Billboard’s Modern Rock Tracks chart in 1993. Lenny takes on the character of a messianic figure who calls on all people to go his way so that love prevails and violence will end. In the reissued album’s booklet, Kravitz recalled creating the song: The day the title track was conceive. was on the drums, Tony Breit was on bass and Craig on guitar

Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn April 17th 1993, Lenny Kravitz performed "Are You Gonna Go My Way" on the NBC-TV program 'Saturday Night Live'. And on April 3rd, 1993 it also reached (for 6 weeks) on the Australian ARIA Top Singles chart. I figured out that it was lenny kravitz and was stunned. The music artist that I am most embaressed to say I like is probably lenny. Daniel from Northern Ireland, United StatesThis song is lame for one reason and one reason only.
Twenty bonus tracks are added to the official album, including 10 previously unreleased recordings from Kravitz’s personal archive. Seven b-sides are conveniently included, and the acoustic versions of Believe, Sister," and Heaven Help are intimate portraits.
