I've seen a lot of things in my life A lot of ups and downs Made a lot of mistakes No matter what you've always been by my side You've always been my best friend
You're the love of my life You're everything to me You've never left my side I love you so much You're my best friend
[Verse 1] Since the beginning of time, all you did was bless men Too young to understand but now you my best friend How could they doubt you, never think about you Don't they know nothing's possible without you? Faith without fear, that's how they raised me Words of man kill but never phase me Grateful for wisdom that you gave me But still I'm like: "Dear God, I wonder, could you save me?" Too much sinning, gotta be more than plush living Gotta be more than grabbing nines to buck tin in Gotta be more than just to lust women Gotta be more than platinum Rolexes, 600's and crushed linen Praise your name, I know some of them hate to do Judgment day, don't they know they can't escape your crew? I'm just trying to live right and pray you take me through And with this song, I dedicate to you My Lord
[Chorus] Lord, you mean the world to me Before I was born, you chose me You always hear me when I'm calling Even catch me when I'm falling You're the closest one to me I surrender all to thee I want the whole wide world to see That we've always been and we'll always be Best friends
[Verse 2] Sometimes I reminisce and wonder how I made it this far Because of you, I'm me, so you the real star Your hindsight, the time's right to get my mind tight Then give it to you and let it shine bright My best friend only know how to teach the truth Plant the seeds of life and let them eat the fruit Can't you see that He spread love for you Shed blood for you, cry for, and die for you Willies with Mac millies know how you get down We know the drama you bring whenever you hit town Just remember when you pray, God is love Gracious, merciful, forgive even the hardest thugs Life as we know it, it all begins with Him Life as we know it, it all ends with Him If I was you I would never try to pretend with Him He might spazz and blow it, I'm best friends with him
[Verse 3] Been two and a half years, since my man Big passed Two and a half years, since my world crashed I needed help, God gave me the power Gave me the strength to go face to face with my darkest hour Looked me in the eyes and ask "What you doing unhappy?" "Don't you know why I'm here?" and started shooting at me Back to the wall, is my faith gonna play out Never wavered once, gave me no way out Your time to die don't even stress the date You're coming with me your soul I'm next to take I told him "I'm too much blessed with faith" "And living for Christ" and then he said "Manifest the great" All of a sudden, what I'm remembering Ground started to shake, everything trembling The power of the truth was shooting through my Timberlands Here was my Lord Jesus Christ, my best friend again, come on
[Said Over Chorus] You mean everything to me You've been with me from day one Even when I thought nobody was there You were there You're my best friend I love you like no other There is no feeling like this in the world If you can relate to what I'm feeling Put your hands in the air for me Let me see you Naw, matter of fact, clap your hands for me Clap your hands, come on Thank you Jesus You always hear me when I'm calling Always catch me when I fall, yeah I surrender all to thee I want the whole world to see That you've always been, you'll always be My best friend I love you Jesus Thank you, forgive me for my tresspasses As I forgive those who tresspass against me Thank you!
