Count on Me
Bruno Mars Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea
I'll sail the world to find you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can't see
I'll be the light to guide you

Find out what we're made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

You can count on me like one two three
I'll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like four three two
You'll be there
'Cause that's what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

Whoa, whoa
Oh, oh
Yeah, yeah

If you tossin' and you're turnin' and you just can't fall asleep
I'll sing a song
Beside you
And if you ever forget how much you really mean to me
Everyday I will
Remind you

Ooh
Find out what we're made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

You can count on me like one two three
I'll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like four three two
You'll be there
'Cause that's what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

Oh, oh
Yeah, yeah

You'll always have my shoulder when you cry
I'll never let go
Never say goodbye
You know you can

Count on me like one two three
I'll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like four three two
And you'll be there
'Cause that's what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

Oh, oh
You can count on me 'cause I can count on you

Overall Meaning

"Count on Me" by Bruno Mars is a song about friendship and being there for one another during times of need. In the first verse, Mars sings about his willingness to sail the world to find a friend who is lost in the middle of the sea or to be a guiding light for a friend who is lost in the dark. He goes on to say that true friendship is tested when friends are called upon to help each other in times of need. The chorus emphasizes the idea that friends can rely on each other and that they should always be there for one another. The second verse talks about how Mars will sing a song beside his friend who is having trouble sleeping and will remind them every day how much they mean to him. The bridge emphasizes that friends should always be there for each other, especially during times of sadness or difficulty. The repetition of "one two three" and "four three two" in the chorus emphasizes the idea of a back-and-forth between friends.


The song was released in 2010 and was featured on Mars's debut album, "Doo-Wops & Hooligans". It is a relatively simple song, with just Mars's vocals, acoustic guitar, and background vocals, which gives it a very intimate feeling. The lyrics are straightforward and heartfelt, which makes it appealing to a wide range of listeners. The song has been used in various TV shows and movies, including "Hawaii Five-0" and "Glee", and has become one of Mars's most popular and enduring hits.

Untitled poem

I loved my friend.
He went away from me.
There‘s nothing more to say.
The poem ends,
Soft as it began -
I loved my friend.
