"Lean On Me" as written by William Frederick Durst, John Everett Otto and Samuel Robert Rivers....
My world, you world
Angry, happy
Downward spiral
System breakdown
Nauseous, panic
Bring on Havoc
So reach out with patience
And hold me while I hold you

I can't solve your problems today, Oh no
But you can lean on me now

Distance grows fonder
Sincere I wonder
Lover or ally
Cleanse me, don't try
Torture, cave in
Bruise me
'Til I say when
Cuz I've got
No patience
So hold me
While I hold you

I can't solve your problems today, Oh no
But you can lean on me now
I can't solve your problems today, Oh no
But you can lean on me now

I don't ever wanna see you cry no more,no more
I don't ever wanna see you cry no more,no more
I don't ever wanna see you cry no more,no more
I don't ever wanna see you cry no more,no more
No more, no more, no more, no more, no more
See you cry no more
No more
No more
See you cry no more

I can't solve your problems today, Oh no
But you can lean on me now
I can't solve your problems today, Oh no
But you can lean on me now

    General Commentwhy are there no comments for this one? It's one of the best limp bizkit songs, for me it talks about how sometimes when a friend has problems and you are not able to help them, you can always be there supporting them and lending them a shoulder to cry in, letting them lean on you.

    General CommentToo right, this is an absolutely amazing song. When Limp Bizkit perform a great song, they do it to absolute perfection, it's like a whole different standard to other ballad-like songs.

    To me, this song is about someone who is struggling to cope with life as it is. I think that Fred and this person have a strong connection, and that Fred is saying basically he will always be there for him/her. The verses describe what is going through this person's mind, and since they are often contrasting lyrics, I think that the person is very confused as to what he/she wants. So Fred is basically telling this person what he/she is experiencing and in the chorus is saying that it's not up to him to solve his/her problems, it's only up to that person, but of course Fred will always be there for that person to lean on. I think that the relationship between Fred and this person may be edgy, as Fred says: "I don't wanna see you cry no more", meaning that they might have had past problems. All in all, it's what I'm experiencing at the moment.

    Amazing song, can't wait to see Limp Bizkit in June this year!
