A Friend in the World  Matthew West

Song: A Friend in the World


[D] [A]  

Verse 1:
[A]She always said the world was over rated,
[B]And she couldn't take the drama it created.
[D]And it's a wonder she didn't wind up jaded,
[A]For all the times she'd been let down.
[A]Well mom and dad split up when she was four years old,
[B]And let the world that she knew start spinning out of control.
[D]She grew up feeling a hole in her soul.
[D]'cause the was never around. She said;
[A]Why's everybody always leavi[B]n'?
[B]I just want someone to believe [D]in,
[D]And secret who believes in [B]me.
[A]When you can't find a friend in the worl[B]d,
A friend in the worl[D]d, love is reaching out.
[A]When you can't find a friend in the worl[B]d,
A friend in the worl[D]d, you got one [A]now.
Na na na na na na na.

Na na na na na na na.

Na na na na na na na.

Verse 2:
[A]Well I grew up in the glass house of a preacher,
[B]Where every move I ever made was a feacher.
[D]And when you don't do what they teach ya,
[A]See they always point you out.
[A]Yeah, boy it's just like Toby Mac used to say;
[B]"Some people gotta learn the hard way",
[D]And when I couldn't out run all the things that I've done,
[D]I picked up the phone and my dad said son.
(Repeat chorus)
Verse 3:
[A]This is where the story gets crazy,
[B]and this is the part that's so amazing.
[D]you see the girl I talked about
[A]in the first verse became my wife.
[A]And there's one last thing I'd like to mention.
[B]We owe it all to the author of redemption.
[D]Because He reached her life, reached my life,
[D]and is reachin' out now take a look around.
I hpe this helps you out some, God bless
