Say to me what you really mean
I won't ever give you reason to lie
See into me, what I am is in my eyes
And I'm willing to believe the same in you

I think I'm ready now, I'm only learning how
Is there anyone around who has a plan?
I'm not a lonely man, there are those who think I am
But I'd rather be alone until I'm standing by a friend

By a friend I've known only minutes
By a friend I've known all my life
To you friend I say let us go outside and play
In the laughter, in the rain
In the sunlight, in the pain

Everyone I've ever known needs a friend
A warm hand in hand
Every woman and man

You want to make a good friend, do it now
Brother, why wait around?
Sister, don't let me down
'Cause you pass right by a friend
And they might never come again oh yeah

Don't you know me?
What I really mean
Is there something here that you can understand?
I am not afraid oh to open up my hand
And I stretch it out to see
If it's taken by a friend
