# A Four Liner of my Own: I'm counting on you

With all the popularity of four liners lately, I figured I'd contribute. Since my recent riddles seem to have been too hard, I'll err on the side of ease this time. Determine what each line is describing (each is a single word) and what the commonality is.

I'm depending on you.

I'm one of many, rarely referred to individually, but just look inside and you'll find me with the others.

When the previous word's done with you, come see me!

ADDENDUM: I've discovered that there is a 5th word that also shares the common bond of the previous 4. I'll add it here in the interest of making it perhaps easier on you:

A sailor's friend, I'm the concatenation of two words (slightly ironic because the first is not known to play well with the second).

HINT:

All 5 of the words are anagrams of each other. These words are 7 letters long each.

• you call that easy? Commented Aug 26, 2015 at 16:26
• Well it was easier originally, but some edits made before posting it on here made it harder, I realize now. I suppose I should spill the beans on the shared attribute and hopefully facilitate the solving Commented Aug 26, 2015 at 16:33
• Are you sure that the words are 8 anagrams? The only set of 5 8-letter words that are anagrams of each other are "alerting altering integral relating triangle", which doesn't really work.

• Before reading the fifth one and the hint I thought the answers are "you" (U), "eye" (I), "queue" (Q), and "see" (C), the commonality being sounding the same with a letter. Commented Aug 27, 2015 at 11:02
• It seems I made a gross error. Apparently I couldn't count when I made the hint, because the words are 7 letters long and not 8. I apologize for the wasted time on this one. I'll edit the hint accordingly for anyone still interested in solving. I assume there will be downvoting for this, which is totally fair, but want to emphasize this was an honest mistake, I didn't mean to waste anyone's time/effort. Commented Aug 31, 2015 at 18:05

Aha! Finally. I spent a good few days on this riddle back when it was an 8-letter word.

I'm depending on you.
