Music and Lyrics: John Francisco
Arrangement: John Francisco and Nick Davio


I’ll be around
Whenever you're down and feeling blue.
I’ll be the one you can always come talk to.
Even though you feel alone
And think all your friends have flown,
I’ll be around; I will be there for you.

You can be sure
Whenever you’re feeling insecure
And all you can think is “I don’t know what to do.”
I’ll be there to take your hand
And I’ll help you understand
I am your friend and I will be there for you.

Through thick and through thin, forever and ever,
I’m walking with you whatever the weather.
Cause you are with me, and I am with you, that’s how we do.
We’re birds of a feather and we’re in this together.

In a blink of an eye
I will be proudly standing by
I will come through, from Peru or Timbuktu.
Cause no matter where you go,
I’ll be with you, don’t you know?
I am your friend and I will be there for you.

A friend is a friend and a true friend will never say adieu
So tell me to leave and I’ll answer back “never.”

If you’ve lost a screw,
I know exactly what I’ll do -
I’ll pick up the phone
And I’m calling the whole crew
And we’ll help you figure out
What the fuss is all about.
We are your friends and we will be there for you.

I am your friend and I will be there for you.
