What would we do without special friends in our life? I share a few songs that will make us appreciate our friends more.
Friends are important in life. Many friends are so close to us, they are just like members of our family. We can rely on them in any situation, vice versa. There is a saying: “Best friends are the siblings God forgot to give us.” I share 3 songs declaring strong friendship. Hope you enjoy them, particularly the Lyrics.
Michael Bolton – Lean on Me
Lean on my has been covered by many artists, but I like Michael Bolton’s version, as he sings it with so much soul. It was written 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, till I’m gonna need
Someone to lean on.
Cece Winans – Count on me
A duet between Whitney Houston and CeCe Winans, about leaning on a friend for support.
Count on me through thick and thin
A friendship that will never end
When you are weak, I will be strong
Helping you to carry on
Call on me, I will be there
Don’t be afraid
Please believe me when I say
Count on me…
Bette Midler – Wind beneath my wings
Sung by a few people, but the popular version was by Bette Midler. It is also the sound track of the Tear Jerker Movie: Beaches which also starred Bette Midler.
It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that’s your way,
you always walked a step behind.
So I was the one with all the glory,
while you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name — for so long,
a beautiful smile to hide the pain.
Did you ever know that you’re my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
’cause you are the wind beneath my wings etc. etc.
Remember: ~ A true friend walks in when the rest of the world walks out. ~
