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.
