Lean on Me - lyrics

This song, written by Bill Withers has recently re-entered my music life.
These words are particularly true for those of
us in my community who are dependent on each other for support.
Whether human, canine, equine or feline, all of earths creatures are interdependent.

Sometimes in our lives
We all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know 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

Just call on me brother/sister
When you need a hand
We all need somebody
I just may have a problem
That you 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 me
Call me
When you want me
Call me
