I'm sure you've all probably heard this song before (I have - dozens of times and even sang it) but as I was listening to it today, it reminded me so much of how this site makes me feel.
The lyric site I got this from says it's by "Bill Withers" but the version I have on CD says it's by "Jimmy Cliff." Well, whoever did it, it's a good and very true song.

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 have things you need to borrow.
For no one can fill those 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't 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 if you need a friend.
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

for a young man like you, that's a history lesson !

I can remember the Bill Withers version from waaaaay back. It's a great song though.
