A Friend In The World
by Matthew West

Album: Something To Say
by Matthew West


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

Well, Mum 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's everybody always leaving?
I just want someone to believe in
And someone to believe 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

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
They always point you out

But it's just like TobyMac 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
