One Less

Album: Story Of Your Life (2010)
  • There's a child
    Been abandoned out on the street
    Now she's waiting for someone to be her miracle

    There's a wife
    Somewhere halfway around the world
    Begging God for a little girl she can call her own

    Well, worlds collide
    And colors fade
    And a man and wife
    Brought their little girl home today

    And there's one less
    One less
    One less broken heart in the world tonight
    Yeah, there's one less
    One less
    There's one less broken heart in the world tonight

    We are called
    To the widows and the orphans
    But it's easy to ignore their silent cry's
    Oh, but every single time
    Somebody reaches into the darkness
    Makes a choice to help the helpless
    They let mercy save a life

    And there's one less
    One less
    One less broken heart in the world tonight
    Yeah, there's one less
    One less
    Yeah, there's one less broken heart in the world tonight

    Well the truth is we are all the orphans
    But love has left the 99 just to find the one

    So let worlds collide
    Colors fade
    Let your life
    Be the miracle today

    One less
    One less
    One less broken heart in the world tonight
    Tonight I know there's one less
    One less
    One less broken heart in the world tonight

    One less child without a home
    One less birthday gone forgotten
    One more soul rising from the bottom

    One less night alone
    One less child without a home
    One less birthday gone forgotten
    One more soul rising from the bottom

    One less
    One less
    One less broken heart in the world tonight Writer/s: MATTHEW WEST, MATTHEW JOSEPH WEST
