Friend Like That

Album: Hawk Nelson Is My Friend (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • This song's lyrics explain that we all need a friend that will always be there for us. It could be a true friend that you go to school with, or it could refer to the Lord, seeing Hawk Nelson is a Christian band.
  • Allmusic reviewer Rick Anderson spoke well for the song: "Charmingly goofy. ('Friend Like That') acts as the distilled essence of the band's trademark approach: slightly whimsical lyrics, a shout-along chorus, and a song that somehow adds up to more than the sum of its parts." >>
