LEAN ON ME
by Bill Withers
edited by Benjamin Faust

VERSE 1:
Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
we all have sorrow
But if we are wise
we know that it's a new day tomorrow

CHORUS:
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

VERSE 2:
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

BRIDGE:
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

(chorus)


LOVE'S WHAT I'M GOING TO DO

VERSE 1:
You might be called a sinner or a saint
We use so many brushes and varieties of paint
But your life is your canvas
and it's your own work of art
So don't let others write your song
just sing it from your heart

CHORUS:
I know that you're not me
That's what make us a beautiful symphony
And if there is evil in this world
It would be forcing my will on you
So love's what I'm going to do

VERSE 2:
Others might have told you that you're bad
For loving someone different from
the preferences they have
But your love is your sacred place
it's your own shining star
So don't let others write your song
you are perfect as you are

(chorus)

BRIDGE:
I hope that every word I say to you
puts a smile of joy upon your face
For you are beautiful, a brightly shining star
you're a glorious miracle,
exactly as you are


VERSE 3:
I hope you sleep in peace tonight
and I hope that in your dreams, you pierce the clouds in flight
and may your sweetest dreams become reality
And don't let others write your song
just sing it and be free!


(chorus)


I love you!
