I like it simple and
I'm not a superman
I never said that I was more than that
I'm not a wannabe
I'm who I wanna be
And I intend to be how you created me

I, I need somebody on the inside
I, I want somebody who can set me free
I'm not the only one who feels like this
I've got a few others around me, hey

Hey, lemme hear you say
Make some noise if you feel this way
Hey, if you got a friend like that
Hey, let's scream and shout
If you know what I'm talking about
Anybody got a friend like that?

I wanted little and I always had a plan
You thought my friendliness was just an act
I'll be your friend indeed
And you can count me
And I can guarantee
Your friend I'll always be

I, I need somebody on the inside
I, I want somebody who can set me free
I'm not the only one who feels like this
I've got a few others around me, hey

Hey, lemme hear you say
Make some noise if you feel this way
Hey, if you got a friend like that
Hey, let's scream and shout
If you know what I'm talking about
Anybody got a friend like that?

Does anyone out there feel alone?
Can anyone hear me? (whoa, whoa)
Down and out, your heart is cold
It's never easy (whoa, whoa)
But if you believe that there is hope
Then sing it with me

Hey, lemme hear you say
Make some noise if you feel this way
Hey, if you got a friend like that
Hey, let's scream and shout
If you know what I'm talking about
Anybody got a friend like that?

Hey lemme hear you say
Does anybody feel this way?
Hey, if you got a friend like that
Hey, let's scream and shout
If you know what I'm talking about
Anybody got a friend like that?

I, I need somebody on the inside
I, I want somebody who can set me free
I'm not the only one who feels like this
I've got a few others around me, hey, hey

    General Commentoh my gosh.
    i can't wait for the new album.

    okay, but this song is either about a best friend...or maybe about Jesus? not sure...

    General Commentaccording to Jason Dunn, “So many people are struggling today. Most of all they need a friend, and we believe everyone has a friend in Christ.”
    so the song is about how we are all longing for something in our lives and the only thing that can fill that void is a relationship with Jesus Christ.

    General Commentyeah and to add to the meaning jason even makes a reference to the band in the lyrics "I'm not the only one who feels like this, i've got a few others around me" the actual first line is "I'm just a simple man"

    General CommentAh, still stoked for new album. =D

    But yeah, it makes a lot of sense to relate it to Jesus.

    However, I am 99.99% sure the first line is NOT "I'm just a simple man"

    If I'm wrong, I apologize, and I will correct it, but for now, these lyrics are correct as I hear them from the single off itunes. =]

    General Commenti think it means both- having a really good earthly friend and a friend in Jesus. Love this song!!! I'm so glad that hawk nelson is getting that bold-faced Christianity that "Smile it's the End of the World" kind of - lacked. HAWK NELSON ROCKS MY SOCKS
