BILL WITHERS


Lean On Me Lyrics

Sometimes in our lives
We all have pain
We all have sorrow

But if we are wise
We know that there's
Always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on

For it won't be long
Till I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things
You need to borrow

For no one can fill
Those of your needs
That you won't let show

You just call on me brother
When you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on

I just might have a problem
That you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on

For it won't be long
Till I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

You just call on me brother
When you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on

I just might have a problem
That you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

If there is a load
You have to bear
That you can't carry

I'm right up the road
I'll share your load
If you just call me

Call me
If you need a friend
(Call me)
Call me
(Call me)
If you need a friend
(Call me)
If you ever need a friend
(Call me)

Call me
(Call me)
Call me
(Call me)
Call me
(Call me)
Call me
(Call me)

If you need a friend
(Call me)
Call me
(Call me)
Call me
(Call me)
Call me
(Call me)
Call me
(Call me)

After placing my Mom's ashes in the lake that she requested, this song was the 1st I heard on the radio, while driving home.

I just love making comments on this about how people are fags, and the best part is no one can make fun of my spelling or that I am gay because I actually am.

a fag officially means a bundle or group of sticks usually used when making a fire but it, just like the word gay (meaning happy or joyful), has had its meaning changed in slang usage to be an insult.
