West, Matthew - A Friend In The World Lyrics




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

  4. superherogirlsrul101

    love is reaching out to us all. some times all we need is a friend. write back.

    That is why Matthew West is still writing the wonderful music he is today. If you ever feel sad or alone, remember that God is with you no matter what. And even though I'm only 12 I can still give encouraging messages. Write back!

    God draws straight with crooked lines.
    Perhaps God is waiting for the right time. Look at what Matthew West had to go through. He nearly lost his left hand from a bad cut, and he's a lefty, like me. Then he had to have vocal chord surgery, face two months of silence and uncertainty, and go to physical therapy. He said he had started to lose all hope of ever getting his voice back, but God decided to give Matthew a second chance and give him his voice back.

    I love Jesus with all i have left, but he has done nothing to cure my hurt. I'm starting to loose all faith. And it hurts me because he promised he wouldn't give up on me, and now I feel alone.

    Matthew Brown

    This is late but I hope you still haven't given up Hope. God still loves you. You are never alone. In the name of God, our greatest struggle will be His greatest triumph.
