  • Mmh, yeah yeah

    Ohh, if you're lonely
    And need a friend
    And troubles seem like
    They never end
    Just remember
    To keep the faith
    And love will be there
    To light the way

    Anytime you need a friend
    I will be here
    You'll never be alone again
    So don't you fear
    Even if you're miles away
    I'm by your side
    So don't you ever be lonely
    Love will make it alright

    When the shadows are closing in
    And your spirit diminishing
    Just remember you're not alone, oh no no
    And love will be there
    To guide you home

    Anytime you need a friend
    I will be here
    You'll never be alone again (no)
    So don't you fear (don't worry, don't fear)
    Even if you're miles away (yeah)
    I'm by your side (I'm with you, wherever you are)
    So don't you ever be lonely
    Love will make it alright

    If you just believe in me
    I will love you endlessly, oh
    Take my hand, take me into your heart
    And baby I'll be there forever baby
    I won't let go
    I'll never let go

    Anytime you need a friend
    I will be here
    You'll never be alone again
    So don't you fear (don't you worry and don't ever fear)
    Even if you're miles away ('cause I'm with you)
    I'm by your side (wherever you are)
    So don't you ever be lonely
    It's alright, it's alright, it's alright

    Woo
    Yeah, yeah yeah

    Don't you ever be lonely, don't you ever be lonely
    Don't you ever be lonely
    Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely

    Don't you ever be lonely, don't you ever be lonely
    Don't you ever be lonely
    Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely

    Don't you ever be lonely, don't you ever be lonely
    Don't you ever be lonely
    Lonely, lonely, lonely

    And anytime you need a friend
    I will be here
    You'll never be alone again (you're never alone again)
    So don't you fear (don't fear)
    Even if you're miles away
    I'm by your side
    So don't you ever be lonely
    It's alright ('cause it's alright, ay)

    Anytime you need me, anytime you want me
    Don't ever be lonely, it's alright
    Anytime you need me, anytime you want me (anytime)
    Don't ever be lonely, it's alright
    Thank you Tokyo

    Anytime you need me, anytime you want me (good night)
    Don't ever be lonely (thank you to the dancers)
    It's alright (thank you to the choir)
    Anytime you need me (thank you to the band)
    Anytime you want me (and the Fabulous Four)
    Don't ever be lonely (good night), it's alright

    Anytime you need a friend
    I will be here (good night)
    You'll never be alone again (no, ohh-ohh)
    So don't you fear
    Even if you're miles away
    I'm by your side
    don't you ever be lonely
    It's alright

    Anytime you need a friend
    I will be here Writer/s: Walter Afanasieff, Mariah Carey
