    So much of the human race is in pain – possibly all of us. Love leaves, families splinter, friends betray, wars rage, demagogues arise, our earth suffers, sentient animals are mistreated, and our differences matter more than that which makes us the same. Our song, “Can I Get A Witness”, speaks to this pain and encourages us to continue on. It cries out to the world for all of us: “feel our pain, bear WITNESS to it and, in doing so; find your humanity again”. To all of us who are fighting to convince those of us who do not see, we say; don’t give up – you are right.
    Love and peace for ALL is truly the only answer. ………Nina & Elisa

    CAN I GET A WITNESS
    © 2016 Elisa Hale & Nina Tolins, MamaNani Music/ASCAP

    “The first cut is the deepest – lord, Can I get a Witness?

    Loneliness is selfish, I’m a freak forlorn and helpless
    And I can’t get away from myself; I don’t feel it today
    Starring at the blankness, searching for my senses
    No more pain, no more gain – so what do you say?
    I’m insane

    On my own with no place to call a home
    Hey – hey – hey – hey

    The first cut is the deepest – lord, can I get a Witness?
    I’m surviving by trying to last here on my own
    I said; the first cut is the deepest – lord, can I get a Witness?
    I’ll be lying if I said that I like it on my own

    All alone, where you think that I belong
    Hey – hey – hey – hey
    Don’t wanna care, don’t wanna dare
    Most times you’re not there, why don’t you care?
    Get out of my way; I am free today

    The first cut is the deepest – lord, can I get a Witness?
    I’m surviving by trying to last here on my own
    I said; the first cut is the deepest – lord, can I get a Witness?
    I’ll be lying if I said that I like it on my own

    So, can I get a Witness? – to a life full of loves that control you
    Can I get a Witness? – to the ones who will fight to console you
    Can I get a Witness – everyone needs a friend
    Can I get a Witness – everyone lend a hand !
    Can I get a Witness – Witness, Can I get a Witness – Witness …”
