Anytime You Need Me
by Michael Franti



In a city that burns so loud you cant hear a sound,
The whole world drives by with the speakers on
Concrete apartments and the windows
With a million other people but still you just feel alone

Everybody needs a friend just to listen to em
Everybody needs a friend who ain't tryna screw em
Everybody needs a friend to go through it with
When you wake up or when you're falling in love

When you need a friend, somebody to walk to
My friend, somebody to talk to
I'll wait right there waiting for you

[Chorus]
Anytime, anytime you want me
Anytime, anytime you need me
Anytime, anytime you want me
Ill walk right back over again
Right back over again
Right back over again
To you my friend, to you my friend, to you

Just like some kind of animal
I would run through a jungle of criminals
Through the valley of darkness or loneliness
Fly across the great abyss just to grant a single wish

I might trip, but I'm never stumbling
I'm right there when your whole worlds crumbling
I'll be the one to pick you up when you've had too much to drink
Bent over the sink

See when you need a friend
Somebody to walk to
My friend, somebody to talk to
I'll be right there waiting for you

[Chorus]

'Cause I watch the stars with a million other people
With a million other people
I watch the stars with a million other people
With a million other people
I watch the stars with a million other people
With a million other people
I watch the stars with a million other people

In a city that burns so loud you cant hear a sound,
The whole world drives by with the speakers on
Concrete apartments and the windows
With a million other people

[Chorus]

I watch the stars with a million other people
With a million other people
I watch the stars with a million other people

To you my friend, to you
Walk right over again

To you my friend
To you my friend
To you
