Lean on Burn Notice

Lean On Me

Parker Havens has an audition video on MySpace for GLEE. After I heard him sing, I wanted to make this Burn Notice fan music video.

Thanks to an email from Parker’s mother, author Candace Havens>, I found out about his video audition in the MySpace GLEE competition> that runs through April 26th.

I went. I listened. I voted. Then I asked Candy if she thought Parker would mind if used his piece in a fan music video. He generously said yes, and this Burn Notice music video is the result.

I haven’t cut a video to just vocals before, so this was a bit of a challenge. There were lots of great Michael & Fiona moments to choose from, but I have to say I like the way the Fiona & Sam scenes cut together. I’ve switched point of view (POV) based on lyrics before, but never so often as in this music video.

If you like music, please go vote for Parker’s MySpace GLEE audition video>! You have to be logged into your MySpace account to vote – then just click this link>, scroll down past the intro movie to see Parker’s entry, and click on the “give a gold star” graphic under his videos.

LYRICS:
Sometimes in our lives
We all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there’s always tomorrow

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

So please
Swallow your pride
If I have things
You need to borrow

For, no one can fill
Those of your needs
That you won’t it let show

So 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’d understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me
When you’re not strong
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

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’d understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me
If, there is a load
You have to bare
That you can’t carry
I’m right up the road
I’ll share your load
If you just call me

Call me
Call me
Call me
Call me
