Bill Withers- Lean on Me

“Lean on Me” – performed by Bill Withers

“Lean on Me” – performed by Bill Withers

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
‘Til I’m gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have faith 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
‘Til 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 uh huh(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)

Aside from looking for caskets or cremation urns for a loved one who passed away, another very important aspect that the family of the deceased must do is to choose the lineup of songs which will be played during the service.

One of the songs that the family can choose is the song “Lean on Me” which is performed by Bill Withers. This song is perfect for a family member who has been a good friend to everyone. The piece has a very sentimental but happy tone to it. The advantage of using this song during the service is that it can relate to everyone from the family, the co-workers to the friends of the deceased.

Upon reading the lyrics of the song, you will notice that it really does not talk about loss and death. It tells you about a person who will always be there for his friends when they need him the most.

For many people, the death of a friend will only mean that they will no longer have a shoulder to cry on. But the song tells you that even in death, that person will still continue inspiring you to live your life and move forward in a positive note.

You can never find a replacement for a good friend who has passed away, but you can always learn from your good relationship with that pal and use it on your future friendships.
