This is for the nobody
The one in the crowd who's got a
Lost look on his face
This is for the down-trodden
The one that the world's forgotten
Waitin' on a better day
Well I'm in no position to judge 'em
Well heaven knows they're just like me
And I'm not alone
In knowin' what it's like
To wonder where you're goin' in this crazy life
And I'm not alone in knowin' how it feels
To pray to God and sometimes wonder if He's real
'Cause I got friends that do
Yeah, I got friends that do

This is for the lost junkie
Who spends all his hard-earned money on somethin' that he hates
And this is for the found guilty
Who ain't gettin' out until he pays his debt to the state
And I'm in no position to judge 'em
Well heaven knows it could have been me
And I may not know what it's like
To lose your job 'cause a habit's got you gripped too tight
And I may not know how it feels
To lay your head down on a prison bed in a world of steel
But I got friends that do
Yeah, I got friends that do

This is for yours truly
Just a little verse to remind me
We've all got somewhere to turn
And I may not know what it's like
To send my only Son to save the world and watch Him die
And I may not know how it feels
To hang there on the cross to prove that love is real
But I got friends that do
Yeah, I got friends that do
Yeah, I got friends that do
You know we all got friends that do
