Anytime You Need Me Lyrics

by Michael Franti & Spearhead

(whistling)

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 aint tryna screw em
everybody needs a friend to go through it with
when you break up or when youre falling in love

when you need a friend, somebody to walk to
my friend, somebody to talk to
ill 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

(whistling)

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 im never stumbling
im right there when your whole worlds crumbling
ill be the one to pick you up when youve 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
ill 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
