Electric Light Orchestra Witness Lyrics

Last updated:

I saw an ant devour Sherman mountain.
Slip across the floor in the river of honey.
I saw the locust drinking from a fountain.
It smiled at me as I paid my money.

CHORUS
Caus' I'm a witness, witness, see the writing on the wall.
I'm a witness, witness, I say I've seen it all.
Caus' I'm a witness, witness, I've got all the proof.
I'm a witness, witness, I swear to tell the truth.

I saw her buying in the face of fashion.
Who'll believe with her little white lies.
I saw her arrive on my bed of passion.
But I never saw a look of love in her eyes.

CHORUS

Some days my eyes can see for miles and miles around.
Some nights my dreams just take me deep underground.
My minds a time machine, I'm in the future and the past.
The past... Scrape away...

(Violin Solo)

CHORUS

CHORUS

Witness, witness, witness
Witness, witness, witness
Witness, witness, witness
Witness, witness, witness
