  • Lyrics
  • This emotional song finds Cole wishing for a lover who can also be her best friend.

    I would you be your best friend
    Be there late at night, when you're walking in
    Be there in the morning when you open your eyes
    I'll be by your side


    Speaking during a concert, Cole explained what inspired her to write the song. "I wrote this record because I was asking myself, 'What the hell do I need? What am I really looking for?'" she said. "So I wrote this song called 'Best Friend.'"
