You can put em on the counter, there with all the other flowers and help me figure out how to turn off this TV.
I'm glad you made the visit, and if you think you have a minute,
You should sit and talk until it's time to leave.

Is my granddaughter, Ruthie, still working at the movies?
Does she still let all her boyfriends in for free?
Does she still stare out the front door, as she's serving popcorn and talk about how nice the day's supposed to be?

Oh, oh, oh,
That's the love that I came to bear witness to.
Oh, oh, oh,
And the love I'm taking with me when I go.

Did you notice walking over, there's a house there at the corner.
There's a dog behind a window that doesn't move.
I've seen him staring in the morning, I've seen him staring in the evenings,
As if time stops til his master's in the room.

Oh, oh, oh,
That's the love that I came to bear witness to.
Oh, oh, oh,
And the love I'm taking with me when I go.

Some nights get worse than others, and I start thinking about your mother;
And she's here with me, as far as I can tell.
As if the work revealed it's secret, and it's asking me to keep it,
Like a kid that hears the ocean in a shell.

That's the love that I came to bear witness to,
And the love I'm taking with me when I go.

Oh, oh, oh, ohhhhhh...
Oh, oh, oh, ohhhhhh...
Oh, oh, oh, ohhhhhh...

That's the Love that I came to bear witness to...
Oh, oh, oh,
And the love I'm taking with me when I go; the love I'm taking with me when I go...

Oh, oh, oh...
