I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

ANYTIME YOU NEED A FRIEND is a song written and produced by American singer Mariah Carey and Walter Afanasieff, and recorded for Carey's third studio album Music Box (1993). It is a gospel-tinged ballad whose protagonist informs a friend that anytime they need a friend she will be there. It was released as the album's fourth and final single in the second quarter of 1994. All of Carey's previous singles had been top five hits on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, but ANYTIME YOU NEED A FRIEND ended this streak entering at number 45 and peaking at number 12, remaining in the top forty-twelve for eighteen weeks and on the chart for twenty-one. Despite this, it was popular on the radio and was ranked number 47 on the Hot 100 1994 year-end charts, giving Carey three singles in the top half of the chart. When I hear this song I am reminded that sometimes the best thing you can give another person is the GIFT OF FRIENDSHIP…When we give ourselves in this way we tend to do so much more for another; ESPECIALLY when it done free of misgivings AND thoughts of compensation.
