Lean On - Major Lazer & DJ Snake ft. MØ



The Experience: We need someone to lean on... But how many of us will be able to support another's weight through all of life's ups and downs?


Music video: Lean On adds Indian choreography to the lyrics, but also sneaks in a pair of interesting symbols that underline the blow a kiss fire a gun refrain. MØ is wearing the same black dress and red flowers in two different scenes, linking two different symbols: the bed - love - and Major Lazer and company on white horses - power.

The Meaning of Lean On: True love grows, and Lean On asks if we're ready for true, mature love that doesn't let go. Mere attraction can ebb and flow - we were bold and young, all around the wind blows, we would only hold on to let go - but true love holds on and stands the trials of time - standing strong as the waves roll over. When you're more experienced and no longer naive - innocent - will you still keep your youthful promises? And the blow a kiss fire a gun refrain references the older Lean On by Bill Withers Medley: kissing and shooting are the extremes of humanity that love has to face and bridge.

Ask yourself: Do you have someone to lean on? Will you?

LYRICS:

Do you recall, not long ago
We would walk on the sidewalk
Innocent, remember?
All we did was care for each other

But the night was warm
We were bold and young
All around the wind blows
We would only hold on to let go

Blow a kiss, fire a gun
We need someone to lean on
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
All we need is somebody to lean on
(2x)

(Eeh ooh, eeh ooh, eeh ooh, eeh ooh) (4x)

What will we do when we get old?
Will we walk down the same road?
Will you be there by my side?
Standing strong as the waves roll over

When the nights are long
Longing for you to come home
All around the wind blows
We would only hold on to let go

Blow a kiss, fire a gun
We need someone to lean on
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
All we need is somebody to lean on
(2x)

(Eeh ooh, eeh ooh, eeh ooh, eeh ooh) (2x)
All we need is somebody to lean on
(Eeh ooh, eeh ooh, eeh ooh, eeh ooh) (2x)
All we need is somebody to lean on
Lean on, lean on, lean on, lean on...

Blow a kiss, fire a gun
We need someone to lean on
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
All we need is somebody to lean on
(2x)
