A Friend In The World

A Friend In The World

Matthew West

She always said the world was overrated
And she couldn't take the drama it created
And it's a wonder that she didn't wind up jaded
From all the times she's been let down

Well, mom and dad split up when she was four years old
And left the world as she knew it spinning out of control
And she grew up feeling a hole in her soul
'Cause they were never around

She said, why is everybody always leaving'
I just want someone to believe in
And someone who believes in me

When you can't find a friend in the world
A friend in the world, Love is reaching down
When you can't find a friend in the world
A friend in the world, you got one now

Well, I grew up in the glass house of a preacher
Where every move I ever made was a feature
And when you don't always do what they teach you
You see they always point you out

Yeah, but it's just like Toby Mac used to say
Some people gotta learn the hard way
And when I couldn't outrun all the things I'd done
I picked up the phone and my dad said

Son, when you can't find a friend in the world
A friend in the world, Love is reaching down
When you can't find a friend in the world
A friend in the world, you got one now

This is where the story gets crazy
And this is the part that's so amazing
You see, the girl I sang about in the first verse
Became my wife

And there's one last thing I'd like to mention
We owe it all to the Author of redemption
Because He reached her life and He reached my life
And he's reaching out now take a look around

When you can't find a friend in the world
A friend in the world, Love is reaching down
When you can't find a friend in the world
A friend in the world, you got one now

When you can't find a friend in the world
A friend in the world, Love is reaching down
When you can't find a friend in the world
A friend in the world, you got one now

A friend in the world
A friend in the world, Love is reaching down
When you can't find a friend in the world
A friend in the world, you got one now
