Lean On Me

(One bar of click before entry)
(Straight in with a Hum once round the verse)

Hmm..

(UP) Some-times in our lives
(DOWN) We all have pain
We all have sor-row


(UP) But if we are wise
(DOWN) We know that there's
always to-mo-rrow


Lean on me
When you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long

Till I'm gonna need somebody to lean on


(UP) Some-times in our lives
(DOWN) We all have pain
We all have sor-row


(UP) But if we are wise
(DOWN) We know that there's
always to-mo-rrow

You just call on me brother when you need a hand

We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me
When you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long

Till I'm gonna need somebody to lean on

(Hum once round verse as outro) Hmm...

Here Comes The Sun

(Intro once round chorus)

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter


Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun do, do, do
Here comes the sun
And I say it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun do, do, do
Here comes the sun
And I say it's all right

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear

Here comes the sun do, do, do
Here comes the sun
And I say it's all right


Here comes the sun do, do, do
Here comes the sun
And I say it's all right

O-o-h Child

(4 bar intro)


Ooh child

Things are gonna get easier

Ooh child
Things'll get brighter
Ooh child

Things are gonna get easier

Ooh child
Things'll get brighter


Some day

We'll get it together and we'll get it undone

Some day

When the world is much brighter

Some day

We'll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun

Some day

When the world is much lighter

(pause)


Ooh child

Things are gonna get easier

Ooh child
Things'll be brighter
Ooh child

Things are gonna get easier

Ooh child
Things'll get brighter


Some day

We'll get it together and we'll get it undone

Some day

When the world is much brighter

Some day

We'll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun

Some day

When the world is much lighter

(pause)

Things are gonna get easier

Ooh child

Marjan Farsad - Dishab / مرجان فرساد – دیشب

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzxC1h0axZQ

I slept in the moonlight last night

دیشب زیر نور ماه خوابیدم

(Diishab zire noore mah khaabidam)


I saw your dream and your eyes

خوابِ تو و چشماتُ دیدم

(Khaabe to o cheshmato didam)


I kissed your lips in my sleep

توی خواب لب هاتُ بوسیدم

(Toye khab labhato boosidam)


I woke up with a big hatred

با یه بغضِ گنده از خواب پریدم

(Ba ye boghze gondeh az khab paridam)


With my blue and white pencil

با مدادِ آبی و سفیدم

(Baa medade abiyo sefidam)


I took your picture on the moon

عکس تو رو روی ماه کشیدم

(Axse to ro roye mah keshidam)


The cloud came and covered the moon

ابر اومد و روی ماهُ پوشوند

(Abr omad o roye maho pooshoond)


I saw it until its black shadow

تا سایه ی سیاهشُ دیدم

(Ta sayeye siya hesho didam)


I missed our kiss

دلم تنگ شد برای بوسه هامون

(De lam tang shod baraye boose hamon)


I cried and rubbed my eyes

گریه کردم هی چشمامُ مالیدم

(Gerye kardam hey cheshmamo malidam)


(Hee hee he he hee hee he…)

هی هی هی هی هی


I saw your eyes in the electric star

تو ستاره برق چشماتُ دیدم

)To setareh barghe cheshmato didam(


I laughed to myself

به تنهاییِ خودم خندیدم

)1Be tanha yeah khodam khandidam(


Alone with no horns or tails

تنهایی که شاخ و دم نداره

)Tanhaee ke shakho dom nadareh(


He comes and brings a mountain of sorrow

میاد و یه کوه از غم میاره

)Mi yado ye koh az gham miyareh(


I missed our laughter

دلم تنگ شد برای خنده هامون

)De lam tang shod baraye khande hamon(


Sounds come from our memory

میاد صدات از خاطره هامون

)Mi yad sedat az kha terehamon(


Haha Haha Hahaha()

هاها ها ها ها ها هاهاها


The wind came with a dandelion

باد با یه قاصدک اومد

)Bad ba ye ghasedak omad(


He sat next to me until I stopped crying

نشست کنارم تا گریهم بند اومد

)Neshast kenaram ta geryam band omad(


He said you slept peacefully last night

گفت دیشب آروم خوابیدی

)Goft dishab aroom khabiddi(


You dreamed of seven kings

خواب هفت تا پادشاهُ دیدی

)Khabe haft ta padeshaho didi(


I missed our moment

دلم تنگ شد برای لحظه هامون

)De lam tang shod baraye lahze hamon(


I stayed and the sound of wind and rain

من موندم و صدای باد و بارون

)Man moondamo sedaye bad o baron(


)Hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo(
