MEAT LOAF


Testify Lyrics

Ooh, come a little closer it's a feeling that I can't deny
I was weak, but I never thought I'd speak about the darker side
Ooh, is that a tent? I could repent upon the side of the road
Oh, but I kept on going yeah I headed for another load

I get up from the ground in the middle of the morning
Up from the ground in the middle of the evening
Up from the ground in the middle of the night
Ohh, I testify

I was laid upon the grave by a preacher's hand I cannot lie
And, I forsake the many vows I made to be with you tonight
Oh, could you be the salvation 'cause I never felt like this before
And, could you lend me your hand, because I'm falling back on the floor

I get up from the ground in the middle of the morning
Up from the ground in the middle of the evening
Up from the ground in the middle of the night
Ohh, I testify

I get up from the ground in the middle of the morning
Up from the ground in the middle of the evening
Up from the ground in the middle of the night
Ohh, I testify

On a road outside of nowhere, in the middle of the night
Well I guess I hit rock bottom and the dawn was not in sight
And a tempest made of fire, onset the sky aglow
And a sweet young thing called out my name

And this is how it goes
She says
Go boy, can you hear them?
Are you falling through the cracks in your eyes?

Go boy, can you hear them?
Are you falling through the cracks in your eyes?
Go boy, can you hear them?
Are you falling through the cracks in your eyes?

Go boy, can you hear them?
Are you falling through the cracks in your eyes?
Go boy, can you hear them?
Are you falling through the cracks in your eyes?

I get up from the ground in the middle of the morning
Up from the ground in the middle of the evening
Up from the ground and I'm falling back down
Up from the ground and I testify

Up from the ground in the middle of the morning
Up from the ground in the middle of the evening
Up from the ground and I'm falling back down
Up from the ground and I testify

Ohh, every cut that heals reveals a scar that you can never hope to hide
Oh, and all the pain that you restrain keeps on building up deep inside
Ooh, you think you're above it then it's you my friend that I implore
You've got to walk before you run, see the night before dawn
Before you pull yourself off the floor

I get up from the ground in the middle of the morning
Up from the ground in the middle of the evening
Up from the ground in the middle of the night
Ohh, I testify

Up from the ground, yeah
I testify

Up from the ground in the middle of the morning
Up from the ground in the middle of the evening
Up from the ground and I'm falling back down
Up from the ground and I testify

Up from the ground in the middle of the morning
Up from the ground in the middle of the evening
Up from the ground in the middle of the night
Ohh, I testify

Up from the ground in the middle of the morning
Up from the ground in the middle of the evening
Up from the ground in the middle of the night
Ohh, I testify

Up from the ground in the middle of the morning
Up from the ground in the middle of the evening
Up from the ground in the middle of the night
Ohh, I testify
