"Don't Lean on Me" as written by and Joel Birch Ahren Stringer....
Let the ocean take me
You've gotta know kid that it ain't easy
To take on all of your grieving
Yeah you gotta believe me

Well don't lean on me 'cause I am falling
Please don't fall with me
I really need you here
Yeah I need you so don't leave

And don't count on me 'cause I am drowning
Please don't drown with me
Just hold me in your heart
Let the ocean take me
Let the ocean take me

And you think I don't read every message that you send?
You think I turn a blind eye
You think I'm just like them?
It breaks my heart, all these stories
Brings me to tears all this grief
And I feel so fucking helpless
When I can't be your relief

Well don't lean on me 'cause
I am falling, please don't fall with me
I really need you here
Yeah I need you so don't leave
And don't count on me 'cause
I am drowning, please don't drown with me
Just hold me in your heart
Let the ocean take me

There is hope in my eyes
There is hope in these words
And there are far too many reasons
For you to stay here on this earth
Stay with me

Well don't lean on me 'cause
I am falling, please don't fall with me
I really need you here, yeah
I need you so don't leave
And don't count on me 'cause
I am drowning,
Please don't drown with me

Just hold me in your heart
Let the ocean take me
Let the ocean take me
Let the ocean take me

    General CommentI think it's about the lead singer feeling torn between wanting to help his fans and felling helpless at his own battles

    General CommentI think this song is about struggling with problems and feeling like you can't do anything and no one wants you around cause of your struggles.
