Will Butler – Witness lyrics
I saw something and I hope you saw it too
'Cause I don't want to tell nobody what I saw
But the world has got to learn the truth
So it's up to you

I saw something
Oh I hope it isn't true
So let me close my eyes drift off in the night
Baby you can tell me what to do
Oh it's up to you
Oh it's up to you
Oh it's up to you
Oh it's up to you
Oh it's up to you

In the wild they gather when you bleed, oh
I'll be hiding watching on my knees, oh

Can't witness (can't witness)
Oh, can't witness (can't witness)
Ooh ooh, can't witness (can't witness)
Not me, not me, no no

I saw someone and I think that it was you
So look me in the eyes 'cause you've been telling lies
But I'm giving you a chance to be true
Oh it's up to you
Oh it's up to you
Oh it's up to you
Oh it's up to you
Oh it's up to you

Can you tell me what it is I see, oh
If you tell me twice
Then I'll believe her

Can't witness (can't witness)
Oh, can't witness (can't witness)
Ooh ooh, can't witness (can't witness)
Not me, not me, no no

Can't witness (can't witness)
Oh, can't witness (can't witness)
Ooh ooh, can't witness (can't witness)
Not me, not me, no no

I saw something I don't care if it's true
Just take me by the hand and tell me what's the plan
Though I'm pretty sure both of us are screwed
Oh it's up to you
Oh it's up to you
Oh it's up to you
Oh it's up to you
Oh it's up to you

I'm leaving town so it's up to you
Aw yeah
I get around so it's up to you
Aw yeah
They'll never trust me so it's up to you
Aw yeah
They'll try and bust me so it's up to you
Just tell the truth
Tell them what you saw
(911)
I'm right behind you oh we're looking out, just tell the truth
I'm right behind you best be looking out (Just tell the truth)

Can't witness oh
Can't witness oh
Can't witness oh (Just tell the truth)
Can't witness ooh
