"Let It Be Me" as written by and Raycharles Jack Lamontagne....
There comes a time
A time in everyone's life
Where nothing seems to go your way
Where nothing seems to turn out right
There may come a time
You just can't seem to find your place
And for every door you open
Seems like you get two slammed in your face

That's when you need someone
Someone that you, you can call
When all your faith is gone
And it feels like you can't go on
Let it be me
Let it be me
If it's a friend that you need
Let it be me
Let it be me

Feels like you're always coming up last
Pockets full of nothing and you got no cash
No matter where you turn you ain't got no place to stand
You reach out for something and they slap your hand
Now, I remember all too well
Just how it feels to be all alone
You feel like you'd give anything
For just a little place you can call your own

That's when you need someone
Someone that you, you can call
When all your faith is gone
It feels like you cant go on
Let it be me
Let it be me
If it's a friend you need
Let it be me
Let it be me
Let it be me
Let it be me
If it's a friend you need
Let it be me
Let it be me, let it be me

    General CommentI'm gonna have to stick up for PmBoy. Although an artist may have some reason for writing a song or a message behind it, music is subjective. Each listener takes a different meaning to every song, that is even if a believer in Christ wants it to mean leaning on Jesus. People come here to share their interpretations of what they think the some meant. Not everyone is going to agree. Chillwinston should go not listen to Creed if he/she doesn't want to, but seriously needs to learn some respect. Respect that other people think, feel, and believe differently than you do. It's not going to hurt you in the long run...so chill!

    There comes a time,
    A time in everyone's life
    When nothing seems to go your way,
    When nothing seems to turn out right

    There may come a time,
    You just can't seem to find your place
    For every door you open,
    Seems like you get two slammed in your face

    That's when you need someone,
    Someone that you, you can call.
    When all your faith is gone,
    It feels like you can't go on

    Let it be me
    Let it be me
    If it's a friend that you need
    Let it be me
    Let it be me

    Feels like you're always comin' up last

    General CommentThis song is pretty self-explanatory, but it is so precious. It makes you feel all warm inside, and if you have someone in your life (whether that be a lover, friend, parent, etc.) then you can definitely relate and it is very comforting.

    General Commentthe meaning is clear and almost everyone can relate. there are people who are there for you, maybe it's just one person but it seems like you're always leaning on them, it makes you want to be the one they go to when they need help. it's almost a want to be needed by someone you love. it's a beautiful song that fills me with warmth.

    General CommentI hear these lyrics and picture Jesus singing them. This is His message in a nutshell. Next time you hear it, I'll bet you think of Him.

    Great song Ray, Thanks
