I EVERYONE HAS A FRIEND OF THEIR OWN
SOMEONE THAT WE CAN LOOK UP TO
MINE IS LIKE NO ONE I’VE EVER KNOWN
HE’S NOT LIKE ME, HE’S NOT LIKE YOU
II WHILE YOU AND I CLIMB THE LADDER HIGH
HE LOOKS INTO THE HORIZON
HE ASKS ME “ BOY, WHAT ARE YOU TRYIN’ TO FIND? “
THEN I REALIZE MY JOURNEY’S JUST BEGUN…
CHORUS I
EVERYBODY, SAY “HELLO” TO THIS FRIEND OF MINE
HE’S STANDING HERE, RIGHT INSIDE OF ME
AND EVERYBODY, HE’S THE ONE WHO’S ALWAYS ON MY MIND
HE’S SOMEBODY YOU DON’T SEE…
III KNOWING WHAT’S GOOD, AND WHAT IS RIGHT FROM WRONG
HE ALWAYS SEEKS TO FIND IT
THE CHOICE BETWEEN COIN AND CANDY FOR THE SOUL
HE NEEDS NOBODY TO REMIND HIM
IV HE ALWAYS PACKS HIS BAG WITH HONESTY
SPECIALLY TO SHOW TO HIMSELF
A TANK-FULL OF COURAGE AND HUMILITY
SO HE WON’T GET LOST, TRYIN’ TO BE SOMEBODY ELSE
CHORUS II
EVERYBODY, SAY “ HELLO” TO THIS FRIEND OF MINE
HE’S STANDING HERE, RIGHT INSIDE OF ME
AND EVERYBODY, HE’S THE ONE WHO’S ALWAYS ON MY MIND
HE’S SOMEBODY YOU DON’T SEE…
HIS NAME IS MR. WHAT- I – WANNA – BE
HIS NAME IS MR. WHAT- I – WANNA - BE
BRIDGE
AND THE RACE GOES ON , AND ON, AND ON
THE RACE FOR TRUTH IN A WORLD OF LIES
LIFE IS NOT JUST WHAT WE HAVE KNOWN
IN A WORLD FULL OF BLINDNESS,
NOW I WANNA SEE WITH BOTH MY EYES
REPEAT CHORUS II
CODA
I AM LEARNING
I AM LEARNING FROM SOMEONE
NEVER STOP LEARNING
UNTIL HE AND I ARE ONE
