I’ve been downhearted ever since we met Loving a ramblin’ man only leaves a worried head Our love is changing I won’t wait and see If the evil in your eyes Will get the best of me Even a blind man Can see the signs You got trouble creepin’ into your mind Bad luck and tragedy’s A thorn felt deep inside Of every heart you break And fool burnt with your lies My world’s been shakin Won’t wait and see If the evil in your eyes Will get the best of me Even a blind man Can see the signs You got trouble creepin’ into your mind I pray that good can save my soul And save me from the shame I know I've seen this evil freed before In trouble I've bestowed Even a blind man Can see the signs You got trouble creepin’ into your mind Yeah you got trouble creepin' into your mind

Lately it feels like the nights go on for days 6 months running and I can't walk away Tryin' not to step on the cracks Lookin' at the hourglass Feels like I’m running on time, runnin’ dry People in the street lookin' like they got somewhere to go Walkin' in their sleep but it seems like they don't even know The hands on the clock are broken Churches closed but the bars are open I can hear the sound of time, runnin' dry I'm gonna find out what this life of mine is worth Before the sun takes one more ride around the earth I won't let another day go by I'm gonna reach my hands up into the sky I ain't gonna sit here cryin' I'd rather be livin' than dyin' I ain't gonna watch my time, runnin' dry Oh I'm runnin' Oh I'm runnin' Oh I'm runnin'

Where were you when I needed someone to be My right hand man, my will to succeed Thought you’d be around, but you hung me out instead You left me alone, willing to let it end Now you’re coming back with a tear in your eye Now it’s your turn to cry Finally found a way, found the right words to say That made my soul believe that you aren’t what I need The time has gone, when you could change my mind Now you’re coming back with a tear in your eye Now it’s your turn to cry I won’t let myself go back to my old ways Still I wonder how you’ve changed Now the moon is gone and stars are shining bright I can't help you, can’t help you dry your eyes Now you’re coming back with a tear in your eye But now it’s your turn to cry Now you’re coming back with a tear in your eye But now it’s your turn to cry

Witness If you are the law, I will obey I'll follow your truth, and never ever stray If you are a crime I’ll take the blame I’ll carry your cross, cause love is worth the weight I need to testify Your love is what I got to prove Oh I want to testify I need a witness I need a witness Nothing’s ever felt so right I need a witness I'm still guiltily every night I need a witness Someone to believe How your love has set me free I need to testify Your love is what I got to prove I want to testify I need a witness I need to testify Your love is what I got to prove I want to testify I need a witness Oh I need to testify Please let me testify I need a witness Oh I need a witness I need a witness Lord I need a witness
