Any Time You Need a Friend

If you have a need to call me
I won’t read into it any more
Than the need to talk to someone
Who has been there once before
Don’t worry about imposing
If you have a text message you want to send
I want to be there to help you out
Any time you need a friend

If you have a need to hug me
I won’t read into it any more
Than the need to simply be held tight
When you feel like falling to the floor
Don’t worry about mixed messages
You’re afraid that it might send
I want to be there to help you out
Any time you need a friend

If you have a need to kiss me
I won’t read into it any more
Than the need to feel good inside
As verification that you’re adored
Don’t worry about teasing me
If the kiss is where you know it must end
I want to be there to help you out
Any time you need a friend

If you have a need to sleep with me
I won’t read into it any more
Than the need for a night of passion
When there’s no lover for you to score
Don’t worry about leading me on
And feeling like you now have to pretend
I want to be there to help you out
Any time you need a friend

But, if you want me to read much more
In these actions that you take
If you wonder why I don’t pick up on the clues
And worry that my friendship is just a fake
Simply tell me you want me to be
Much more than just your friend
And I’ll be glad to be much more for you
Never to wear these restraints again
