Lean On

Lyrics

playDo you recall?
playNot long ago we would walk on the sidewalk
playInnocent, remember?
playAll we did was care for each other

playBut the night was warm
playWe were bold and young
playAll around the wind blows
playWe would only hold on to let go

playBlow a kiss, fire a gun
playWe need someone to lean on
playBlow a kiss, fire a gun
playAll we need is somebody to lean on

playBlow a kiss, fire a gun
playWe need someone to lean on
playBlow a kiss, fire a gun
playAll we need is somebody to lean on

playWhat will we do when we get old?
playWill we walk down the same road?
playWill you be there by my side?
playStanding strong as the waves roll over

playWhen the nights are long
playLonging for you to come home
playAll around the wind blows
playWe would only hold on to let go

playBlow a kiss, fire a gun
playWe need someone to lean on
playBlow a kiss, fire a gun
playAll we need is somebody to lean on

playBlow a kiss, fire a gun
playWe need someone to lean on
playBlow a kiss, fire a gun
playAll we need is somebody to lean on
playAll we need is somebody to lean on
playAll we need is somebody to lean on
playLean on, lean on, lean on, lean on...

playBlow a kiss, fire a gun
playWe need someone to lean on
playBlow a kiss, fire a gun
playAll we need is somebody to lean on

playBlow a kiss, fire a gun
playWe need someone to lean on
playBlow a kiss, fire a gun
playAll we need is somebody to lean on

meaningMeaning

It's about young love looking into the future and hoping that person is still by their side to lean on

True love grows, and Lean On asks if we're ready for true, mature love that doesn't let go. Mere attraction can ebb and flow - we were bold and young, all around the wind blows, we would only hold on to let go - but true love holds on and stands the trials of time - standing strong as the waves roll over. When you're more experienced and no longer naive - innocent - will you still keep your youthful promises? And the blow a kiss fire a gun refrain references the older Lean On by Bill Withers Medley: kissing and shooting are the extremes of humanity that love has to face and bridge.
