BEN, THE TWO OF US NEED LOOK NO MORE
WE BOTH FOUND WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR.
It was night, I was walking by the street, and I heard the song on the radio.
WITH A FRIEND TO CALL MY OWN
I'LL NEVER BE ALONE.
I did not know the exact lyrics of the song but it seemed to have a bond in my soul.
AND YOU MY FRIEND WILL SEE
YOU'VE GOT A FRIEND IN ME.
It seemed to be speaking about me. It seemed to be I am he.
BEN, YOU'RE ALWAYS RUNNING HERE AND THERE.
But I am not running, I am walking "here and there" - and everywhere.
YOU FEEL YOU'RE NOT WANTED ANYWHERE
God knows it is the longing of the deepest of me to find a friend who likes and loves me as I am..
IF YOU EVER LOOK BEHIND
AND DON'T LIKE WHAT YOU FIND
Yes, many like me because of my "innocence" and "meekness.".
THERE'S SOMETHING YOU SHOULD KNOW
YOU'VE GOT A PLACE TO GO.
But when this "many" know about the "secret," it is better that they have not ever liked me before.
I USED TO SAY "I" AND "ME"
NOW IT'S "US," NOW IT'S "WE"
It is better that they leave me alone because, in the end, I will always be alone..
BEN, MOST PEOPLE WOULD TURN YOU AWAY
I DON'T LISTEN TO A WORD THEY SAY.
I understand why Michael changed color - why the change of the face.
THEY DON'T SEE YOU AS I DO
I WISH THEY WOULD TRY TO.
It was but to be liked and to be loved.
I'M SURE THEY'D THINK AGAIN
IF THEY HAD A FRIEND LIKE BEN.
But, Michael, no matter what we do, people will never ever like the thing that is inside of us.
But when I hear the song, I feel it was not you who sang it for me: but Someone - Who loves every bit of us - and Who can change everything for us..
And, as I remembered you in the past, I can only pray for your soul to meet Him there.
