Lean on Me

Today, I am sharing my video – Lean on Me, the Steven Tyler version, the original being by Bill Withers.

I believe this might be my second time sharing this particular video; BUT, I am doing it for a fellow Coil friend. Patty’s post really touched me today about Women and Domestic Violence (Does your love “Hurt”), and I haven’t stopped thinking about it!

And, here is the Steven Tyler Version of it (the one I am singing to).

I hope this brings smiles to those who are feeling down. I am not the greatest singer, but hey – I try!! And this song has A LOT of meaning to it!!

My good friend, Srdan, also wrote an article in regard to Patty’s article today and you can read it here – “Men do not beat women, filthy scumbags do!“. He also speaks truth and passion! Hope you can find the time to read both articles!!

We seriously need to raise awareness to both women and men who are in abusive relationships. GET OUT!!! You don’t have to think twice, because once they know they have control over you, it won’t stop. I’ve been there, and I got out in time before it became more serious.

Today, I called a friend because I could tell (from text message) that she needed to talk, and I just wanted her to know that she is not alone, and I am here to listen. All it takes is for someone to listen to what you are going through. All it takes is to know that someone truly does care.

There have been many times I have felt low, and I mean really low. But we can bounce back. Somehow. Some way. In time.

I hope that if you are experiencing a rough patch in life, you will reach out to someone you trust!

Don’t be scared.Don’t be ashamed.
Just trust in yourself and have faith that everything will be O-KAY. And trust me, I know it’s easier said than done, but every small step counts and as long as you try to keep pushing forward, that’s what counts. It doesn’t matter how slow you go. Don’t get discouraged and just keep inching forward – if it helps, think of a snail and how slow they go …. it’s not a race, as long as you find yourself. But please, for your own sake (or someone you know) – the sooner, the better!! XOXO


I am here to listen to anyone who wants to chat. That’s why I started “The Mind, Untangled.” – in hopes to motivate and inspire those going through dark times in their lives. You can connect with me on Twitter – let’s talk!
Here are the lyrics to the song…
Bill Withers – “Lean On Me”
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
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 things 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 loadYou 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 when you need a friend
Call me if you ever need a friend
Call me, call me (repeat)

“Let’s untangle our mind, and set it free…”
