Foo Fighters - What Did I Do? / God As My Witness Lyrics




There you go again,
putting words into my mouth.
This one's for you to know,
and for me to find out.

All that trouble, and you on about.
How you gonna know, til you hear it out loud.
Stop, ask myself what did I do?
what did I do to deserve you?
Come on, tell me now what did I do?
what did I do to deserve you?

I heard every word comin' from the 13th floor.
Your song came along,
and I heard the voices telling me to save yourself,
I'll behave yourself.

I stop, ask myself what did I do?
what can I do to preserve you?
Come on, tell me now, what can I do?
What can I do to conserve you?

Your name, year of fame,
I could see the writing on the wall.
Come on, flip a coin, bet it's going to tell you
to save yourself, I'll behave yourself.

Your man, channelin', knowin' by the x on his hand
You raise, runaways singin' at the gate,
to save yourself, I'll behave yourself.

So here I go again,
putting words into your mouth.
This one's for me to know,
and for you to find out.

All that trouble and I'm on about,
how you gonna know, til you hear it out loud.
All of your heroes, where are they now?

I'm lost, deliver me,
I crossed the river finally.
God as my witness,
yeah it's gonna heal my soul tonight.
God as my witness,
yeah it's gonna heal my soul tonight.
God as my witness,
yeah it's gonna heal my soul tonight.

God as my witness,
yeah you gonna heal my soul tonight.
God as my witness,
yeah you gonna heal my soul tonight.

    I haven't been massively into the Foo Fighters since 2005. Shit man, this is probably the most enjoyable of their albums that I've listened to since then. Feels like an expansion of TINLTL in places. I dig it.

  33. Opturus

    3:27 ¿¿wut?? xD

  34. Otto the Smartass

    Am I the only one that likes the first half better? It emits a Gimme Stitches vibe...

    GaiaWolz

    no so do i :)

  35. Jesus Garcia

    Since 04:34 to forward, my man, that sounds amazing! it makes me remember aerosmith songs! not doubt, best rock band ever!

    Jesus Garcia

    Short words, so you can understand "last part sounds like aerosmith", what about now?

    mountaingoat1003

    @Jesus Garcia What?

    LoX- aaS

    Jesus Garcia Aerosmith? realy.
    Im talking beatles and stones and zeppelins over here

  36. Juan Ortiz

    great solo

    Sebastian Alf

    Of course, It's Gary Clark Jr. playing!

  37. LucielZ1

    La segunda parte es emotiva como pocas eh.. solo podría ahí Walk, te pone la piel de gallina si lo escuchas con las bocinas a lo máximo.

  38. me mo

    I listen to this song when my dad yells at me and tells me how he doesn't want to hear me talk.

    Pho King GOD

    uhhh lol?

    ap jax one trick

    get help

    LoX- aaS

    me mo thats sad

  39. Mixl

    sensacional

  40. M P H

    3:30 onwards is just so damn good.

  41. Calico Jack

    i like how they got what looks like Zilker Park there but why the Frost Tower and not the State Capitol Building or something else more meaningful. at least they put town lake there, which is the river in the portrait for non Austinites. we call it a lake cause fuck you keep it weird.

  42. Andronk

    Greatest rock band ever, no question.

    Jakub Marszałek

    Ever heard about Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Motorhead?

    XxCrazyRedneckHackerxX

    Andronk Not even the best foo's album. Probably the worst in all honesty. The best rock album ever is Led Zeppelin 1

    LoX- aaS

    @XxCrazyRedneckHackerxX i can agree with that.
    IMO its AC/DC but hey we all have opinions.

  50. Andrea Baiocco

    Gary Clark jr. Solo is amazing

  51. Kotow Boy

    Hey Foo Fighters. You have a video for every song on Sonic Highways. Why wouldn't yo upload those instead of just a picture ?!

  52. Trevor Krejci

    I am addicted to the FOO FIGHTERS....I cannot go a single day without listening. Vey talented musicians. The journey they were on when they wrote the music and lyrics was a journey of a life time. We are all getting the benefit of that soulful trip.

  53. darthxtian

    Seeing Gary Clark Jr do the solo in the the live concert: Priceless.

  58. Venus Shanya Satrapi

  67. KILLAGORILLA7000

    This is hilarious grandad rock!

  68. kevin lavare

    does anyone noticed the picture?

  69. STRATCAT101

    I would love to hear the Foo Fighters do a Tommy Bolin song like Post Toastee or Wild Dogs, because I know they would do a great version of it.

  70. STRATCAT101

    Waiting for the Foo's to come back to Toronto.I saw them last time they were here.They are an amazing band.

  71. Rolando Osegueda

    this goes to all the people hating this album i think you all should be glad that dave and the rest of the band are still around giving us some kick ass music im really blessed listening to this music its great !!!!

  72. FreshTillDeath56

    Yeah, he's gonna HEEEEAL MYYYYY SOUUUUUUL.

  73. erik ressem

    Deilig kom i stemning musikk. Eng ( Delicious get in the mood music)

  74. depreseven

    After 3.45 part of the riff remind me Beatles 's All We Need Is Love  a bit. Cool!

  75. Tomas Niemczyk

    AMAZING SONG !!! If you wanna listen piano version with lyrics (GREAT FOR SINGING), checkout my channel !

  76. xXxLegendWolfxXx

    Dude this song became my favorite song in the album because i was so freaking high on LSD and when this song came i was just jamming out.

  77. Steven Hess

    Foo Fighters...you guy,s do a killer good job with everything you do...i wish i could see you guy,s in concert...but hey keep the great Music Coming we love it man

  78. Barius Maximus

    <-- this guy starts bonerjammin at 3:30

  79. MXG Channel

    I fucking love this band.

  80. Sam 'LastKeyMusic' Lasky

    God as my witness, it's going to heal my soul tonight.

  81. ernst de waal

    Gary Clark Jr. You're a legend.

  82. NintendoCapriSun

    I caught the "All You Need Is Love" riff pretty much instantly, and automatically assumed it had to be deliberate.  Just like how Oasis used the "Imagine" piano riff on "Don't Look Back In Anger", in fact, this is probably the most epic "homage" I've heard since then!

    Bárbara Uriona

    Tal cual!! Agreed!

    cjolena

    Thanks! I didn't catch "all you need" riff until you mentioned it. This song has really grown on me. They did a great job of representing Austin's past and future both lyrically and musically.

  83. Peter Krapis

    u said it

  84. Y DA

    0:49 it's like Sweet home alabama ;p

    Sam 'LastKeyMusic' Lasky

    @Yorda Magaski It is ridiculously like Sweet Home Alabama. No matter how I listen to it.

  85. G1RR0X

    all these songs are giving me goosebumps now <3

  86. Ric Flair

    The biggest fuck up Google done with YouTube is keep the comment section

  87. Niels Erkens

    Gary Clark jr's solo 👌

  88. massivethrobbingmast

    Quite interesting that almost all these new FF songs have massive love/hate debate on the youtube pages. This isn't alternative enough for me it's too straight forward and predictable but I'm still holding the Foos in my top 5 bands of all time. The concept and theory of this record is great though and it's a great undertaking but for me the tracks just don't maintain my interest.  

  89. Courtney Siejak

    thereore if you believe in yourself, "hear my soul"...

  90. marcelo campelo

    Im not a huge FF fan, i like the early albuns. But this one is a great song! Part Two reminds me a lot of powepop 70s, like Badfinger and Cheap Trick .listen to "Voices" cheap trick's song.

  91. James Edington

    This album is different because it takes different music styles from cities that have impacted music. Do not judge just because you don't like it a first, that is just like a smoker who stops trying to quit because they don't like it. So here is some advice listen to it more than once.

  92. Vania Del Rio

    It´s to hear it loud!!!!!

  93. Anis Benkeroura

    i love this song dammm

  94. Jack S

    reminds me of sweet home alabama in places

  95. CAMILA RGCV

    I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE THIS ALBUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM, AND ALSO I LOVED THE CONCERTIN COLOMBIA, THE BEST BAND EVER!!! SH THE HATERS

  96. James Klippel

    whats up with ripping off Love by the Beatles?
