"Bearing Witness" as written by and Ed Roland....
Another day, newspapers say
Life, what you do to me?
I'm always here, you're always there
Hope, that's my company

Yeah, stars have always so many wishes though
They can tell what we already know
See, I'm just gathering all my eyes can see through
I'm bearing witness to you
I'm bearing witness to you

Familiar wags, the evening stares
Life, what you say to me?
I'm promised here, you're precious there
Love, you're my destiny

Yeah, stars have always so many wishes though
They can tell what we already know
See, I'm just gathering all my eyes can see through
I'm bearing witness to you
I'm bearing witness

And some days I surrender
And some days I resolve
But everyday I conquer with your love
With you, love

Yeah, stars have always so many wishes though
They can tell what we already know
See, I'm just gathering all my eyes can see through
I'm bearing witness to you
I'm bearing witness to you

    General CommentThere's a very nice laid back sound to the song; a great song for cruising down highways at night while keeping your peace.

    General CommentSometimes its what a songs lyric means to you, so heres my interpretation.

    Another day, newspapers say
    Life, whatchu do to me?
    I’m always here, you’re always there
    Hope, that’s my company

    I think that means two people that are separated by distance but there is the hope of getting together at some point.

    Yeah stars of only so many wishes though
    They can tell what we already know
    See I’m just gathering all my eyes can see through
    I’m bearing witness to you, I’m bearing witness to you

    You can wish upon a star but it doesnt really matter because I've laid my faith in you. Love drives that faith in you.

    I could keep going on but I get a lot of the whole love from a distance vibe and the whole having faith in the greater purpose that lies ahead for two people.

    Maybe Im wrong but thats how I read it!

    General Commentto me...it's about a guy who understands this girl completly and is amazed by her...but she hasn't quite given into her love for him yet...everyday she has a different look at him and she gains more interest in him...and all he can do is hope she will eventually give in and wait for it to happen
