  • Trust in me, I'll try to do
    Everything to help you that I can
    Broken wings can heal and mend again
    Don't be afraid to cry your tears out loud
    Everybody needs to have a friend

    It's only love that I can give
    And I give to you the only love I have
    When I see you're so unhappy
    It makes me want to try and understand
    Everybody needs a helping hand

    If everything should turn around
    And it's me who feels so down and out
    You could be the kind of company
    To share a load and know how bad it feels
    Everybody needs to have a friend Writer/s: ANDREW POWELL, DAVID TURNER, MARTIN TURNER, STEVE UPTON
