Lean on me.
Why did people love that song so much? Why do we love that song? It's because it's an almost perfect song. It's because when we listen to that song, we never think about being the one that needs to do the leaning. When you belted "lean on meee" in your car, you were the person offering the help. It's deep within us to want to be a source of strength for those who need us. The desire is there (enough to make us want to sing about it), but it's our willpower that puts it into action. Our passion is enough to make us sing. Our choices are enough to make the world around us sing along.
