Lean On
Major Lazer Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
We need someone to lean on
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
A-A-All we need is somebody to lean on

(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
(Hey, hey, hey, hey)

What will we do when we get old?
Will we walk down the same road?
Will you be there by my side?
Standin' 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 (hey)
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
We need someone to lean on
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
A-A-All we need is somebody to lean on

All we need is somebody to lean on
(We need someone to lean on, hey)
(Hey, hey)
A-A-All we need is somebody to lean on
(Major Lazer, hey)

Oh, oh-oh
(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
(Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)

Blow a kiss, fire a gun (hey, hey)
We need someone to lean on (hey, hey)
Blow a kiss, fire a gun (hey, hey)
All we need is somebody to lean on (hey, hey)
Blow a kiss, fire a gun (hey, hey)
We need someone to lean on (hey, hey)
Blow a kiss, fire a gun (hey, hey)
A-A-All we need is somebody to lean on (hey, hey)

Overall Meaning

"Lean On" by Major Lazer feature MØ, is a song about the need for support and companionship in life. It starts by reminiscing on happier times when the two people would walk on the sidewalk and care for each other, but then things change as they grow older, and life becomes more challenging. However, they still need each other, even more so when times are tough. The line "Blow a kiss, fire a gun" is a metaphor for the idea that actions can have both positive and negative consequences but we are willing to risk them for the people we care about.


Throughout the song, Major Lazer is trying to convey the message that we all need someone to lean on at some point in our lives. It's a deep feeling of human necessity that we are all vulnerable to. Despite the difficulties and uncertainties of life, having someone to lean on makes things a lot better. The song's powerful chorus emphasizes this point, hammering it in with the repetition of the phrase, "All we need is somebody to lean on". The lyrics are relatable to almost everyone, as all of us have been in situations where we needed support and a helping hand from friends or family.


Overall, "Lean On" is a catchy and upbeat song that carries a universally relatable message of the importance of human connection, and is a testament to Major Lazer's ability to deliver a potent and striking message through their music.
