This song is considered a classic in some communities and recently made a mini-comeback when veteran singers Deborah Cox and Tamia did a social distancing cover for their fans. You have probably heard it if you have watched the movie Waiting to Exhale (1995) until the end.
As you listen, you will more than likely start thinking of all the people you are closest to... people you would give so much for and people who have helped you through your sufferings. This song was "Umbrella" before Rihanna and Jay-Z made friendships popular again.

"I know sometimes it seems as if it's never gonna end
But you'll get through it
Just don't give in"
"Count on me through thick and thin
A friendship that will never end
When you are weak I will be strong
Helping you to carry on"
"I know that life can make you feel
It's much harder than it really is
But we'll get through it
Just don't give in...
Count on me"
