I hate it when this world just knocks the wind right out of you

I’ve heard the news and I can’t believe how

It could have occurred and that it weighs on my brow

It’s got me troubled in a frozen state

But it’s out of my hands and I have to leave it up to fate



Something bad has happened and I don’t know what to do

I hate it when this world just knocks the wind right out of you



What can I do to help the problems and the pain

I know if I don’t do something I’ll never be the same

Trust in me until things fully mend

I’ll be right here for I am you friend



Something bad has happened and I don’t know what to do

I hate it when this world just knocks the wind right out of you



You didn’t ask for this but its now at your door

It’s right in your face and you can’t even ignore

Your down not out so use the strength you’ve stored

Have faith in your self and the lord



Something bad has happened and I don’t know what to do

I hate it when this world just knocks the wind right out of you



I’ll be here waiting with me you can confide

I’ll come when you call to be by you’re side

I hope things get better and your life starts new

I’ve been there in the past and I’ll be there even more now just for you



Something bad happened and I don’t know what to do

I hate it when this world just knocks the wind right out of you
