"Friends" as written by Mary J. Blige, Tom Brock, Robert Taylor, Barry Eugene White, Sean L. Foote and Majid Hasan....
All my life I've been searching for something
Something I can put my finger on
Baby, I've been living for the weekend
Baby, I've been living for this cyber soul

Every Friday just about midnight
All my problems seem to disappear
Everyone that I miss when I'm distant
Everybody's here

I need love 'cause only love is true
I need every waking hour with you
And my friends 'cause they're so beautiful
Yeah, my friends they are so beautiful
They're my friends

All my life I've been wasting, wasting
Wasting all my money, all my time
All the time that I'm waiting, waiting
Waiting for the moment you are mine

The song about yeah, I'm thinking, thinking
Thinking all the things that I've done wrong
All the time yeah, I was forgetting
You were mine all along

I need love 'cause only love is true
I need every waking hour with you
And my friends 'cause they're so beautiful
Yeah, my friends they are so beautiful

I need love 'cause only love is true
I need every waking hour with you
And my friends 'cause they're so beautiful
Yeah, my friends they are so beautiful
They're my friends

They're my friends
They're my friends
They're my friends
They're my friends

They're my friends
They're my friends
They're my friends
They're my friends

    Song Meaning"All my life I've been searching for something,
    Something I can't put my finger on.
    Maybe I've been living for the weekend.
    Maybe I've been living for the siren sound."
    I take this to mean that they've always felt a void in their life, and they fill it by "living for the weekend", when they can just party and forget everything. And, of course, we all know that too much partying can lead to a "siren sound", or the cops pulling up.

    "But every Friday at just about midnight,
    all my problems seem to disappear.
    Everyone that I miss when I'm distant,
    everybody is here."
    Around midnight on Friday, they find themself drunk enough to make everything seem manageable, and they find themself trying to pull people they've hurt back into their life.


    "I need love,
    cause all your love is true.
    I need every waking hour with you
    and my friends,
    cause they're so beautiful.
    Yeah, my friends
    they are so beautiful,
    Yeah, my friends."
    They've fallen in love, and they want to spend "every waking hour" with this person, bit they also want to be with their friends, probably the ones they were distant from in the first verse. Then they admire their friends.

    "All my life I've been wastin', wastin'
    wastin' all my money, all my time.
    All the time that I'm waitin', waitin'
    waitin' for the moment you are mine."
    They've always taken things for granted, and spent their time and money on things that weren't really worthwhile, that they could have done something better with. The things they've been doing are merely distractions until they fall in love with the right person.

    "The sound of all my thinkin', thinkin'
    thinkin' all the things that I've done wrong.
    All the time, yeah, I was forgettin',
    you were mine all along"
    They truly regret the things they've done wrong, and while dwelling on this part of the past, they realize that they and the person they're in love with have been in love a lot longer than they realize. Perhaps the person they've fallen in love with was just a friend for a long time.

    Chorus 2x

    they're my friends (8x)

    General CommentI think it's "for this siren's soul".
    I'm pretty positive it is, I can hear it distinctively.

    I wish this song could play in my head all day, just to keep my thoughts centred, and positive, because this song is the truth, I love my friends and their great.
