A Friend In Need

You need a friend when you’ve got nothing to do
I want a friend who understands what I am going through

You need a friend when you want company for a drink
I want a friend who encourages me to think

You need a friend when all you want is empty talk
I want a friend who will support me, like bedrock

You need a friend when your own life bores you
I want a friend who never, ever ignores you

You need a friend when you want to go to a restaurant
I want a friend who is a guide, a mentor, a confidant

You need a friend when you want someone to sing along
I want a friend who will help me write my own song

You need a friend when your other friends are all away
I want a friend who will think about me every day

A friend of mine is fond of  saying 
‘A friend in need is no friend of mine’

With friends like you I’ve come to learn
There’s a lot of truth in that old line
