Lean On Me

Madame

Lean on me
I am a rock I stand fast
Lean on me
That's what I said when you asked
When you were broken
Didn't I mend your pain
When we were choking
Didn't we breathe again

Light my fire
You are a spark an old flame
Light my fire
You said as you cried without shame
While we were kissing
Didn't you need me too
While we were making love
Didn't you love me to

How can you love the rain
When it's pouring down on me
How can you kick a man
When you know he's down
When you know he's down
God you know I'm down again

Run away
Isn't it plain I'm wasted
Run away
That's what I feel I should have said
Then in the morning
How I'd have cried for you
Needing your whole heart
Lover I've died for you

How can you love the rain
When it's pouring down on me
How can you kick a man
When you know he's down
When you know he's down
God you know I'm down again
