?What would you think if I sang out of tune
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song
And I’ll try not to sing out of key
Oh I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm gonna try with a little help from my friends?
Originally sung by The Beatles but perhaps made most famous by Joe Cocker’s opening rendition for the Wonder Years (at least in my humble opinion); as soon as I hear the tune I immediately start to replay the footage of Kevin playing with Paul and Winnie Cooper. Throughout high school we all probably had those go to friendships for when our world just didn’t seem right. Why is that as grown adults, we shy away from sharing our problems with one another? Perhaps, we don’t want to burden others with our troubles; or we’re afraid of the judgement on our not so perfect life Truth be told, none of us are perfect (shocking revelation, I know)
