10. Friend In The World

Something To Say
by Matthew West



 

She always said the world was overrated
And she couldnít take the drama it created
Itís a wonder that she didnít wind up jaded
From all the times sheís 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
Ďcause they were never around

She said, "whyís everybody always leaving?
I just want someone to believe in
And someone to believe in meĒ

When you canít find a friend in the world
A friend in the world
Love is reaching down
When you canít 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 donít always do what they teach you
They always point you out

But itís just like tobymac used to say,
ďSome people gotta learn the hard wayĒ
And when I couldnít outrun all the things Iíd done
I picked up the phone and my dad said, ďsonĒ

When you canít find a friend in the world
A friend in the world
Love is reaching down
When you canít 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 thatís so amazing
You see, the girl I sang about in the first verse
Became my wife

And thereís one last thing Iíd like to mention
We owe it all to the Author of redemption
Because He reached her life and He reached my life
And Heís reaching out now take a look around
