Anytime You Need a Friend is a song by American singer-songwriter Mariah Carey. The song was written and produced by Carey and Walter Afanasieff, for her third studio album, Music Box (1993). It was released on May 31, 1994 through Columbia Records, as the fourth and final single from the album. The song draws influence from pop, R&B and gospel music genres. While the album focused heavily on pop oriented and radio friendly material, "Anytime You Need a Friend" deviated from the formula, finishing as the only gospel-infused song on Music Box. Lyrically, the song's protagonist tells her love interest that anytime he may need a friend, she will be there unconditionally for him. Throughout the song's bridge and climax, critics noted the lyrics altering from those of a friend, to those of a lover.

Fifth Harmony performed this as a "save" song after finding themselves in the bottom 2 along with Diamond White.

LyricsEdit

Ally:
Hum, mmh
If you're lonelyand need a friend
And troubles seem like
They never end

Normani (Fifth Harmony):
Just remember to keep the faith (A-ah, ah)
And love will be there to light the way

Fifth Harmony:
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

Camila with Fifth Harmony harmonizing:
Don't you ever be lonely
Love will make it alright

Lauren:
When the shadows are closing in
And your spirit diminishing

Dinah:
Just remember you're not alone
And love will be there
To guide you home

Ffith Harmony:
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

Camila with Fifth Harmony harmonizing:
Don't you ever be lonely
Love will make it alright
