Witness... Sarah McLachlan

Jax goes through a box of Brenda's things... September 1998

Make me a witness, take me out

Out of darkness, out of doubt

I won't weigh you down with good intentions

Won't make fire out of clay or other inventions

 

Will we burn in heaven like we do down here?

Will a change come while we're waiting?

Everyone is waiting

 

And when we're done soul searching

And we carry the weight and die for the cause

Is misery made beautiufl right before our eyes

Will mercy be revered or blind us where we stand

 

Will we burn in heaven like we do down here?

Will a change come while we're waiting?

Everyone is waiting

 

Will we burn in heaven like we do down here?

Will the change come while we're waiting?

Everyone is waiting
