"You Are My Life" as written by Kenneth Edmonds, Michael Jackson, Carole Bayer Sager and John Mcclain....
Once all alone
I was lost in a world of strangers
No one to trust
On my own, I was lonely
You suddenly appeared
It was cloudy before but now it's clear
You took away the fear
You brought me back to life

You are the sun
You make me shine
Or more like the stars
That twinkle at night
You are the moon
That glows in my heart
You're my daytime my nighttime
My world
You're my life

Now I wake up everyday
With this smile upon my face
No more tears, no more pain
'Cause you love me
You help me understand
That love is the answer to all that I am
And I'm a better man
You taught me by sharing your live

You are the sun
You make me shine
Or more like the stars
That twinkle at night
You are the moon
That glows in my heart
You're my daytime my nighttime
My world
You're my life

You gave me strength
When I wasn't strong
You gave me hope when all hope is lost
You opened my eyes when I couldn't see
Love was always here waiting for me

    General CommentI'm surprised that there are no comments on this song.
    It's one of the most beautiful ballads I've ever heard.
    To me it's about he's kids Prince Jr, Paris and Prince II. He loved them so much that they were truly their life, saving him from the loneliness he always felt hunted him.

    General CommentThis song is one of the most beautiful he has ever sung, obviously it's for his children and the lyrics are self-explanatory. Love.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful and simple; it's unfortunate that it's sort of overlooked, maybe for its very simplicity. I feel like it's really indicative of Michael's spirit and what was most important to him in life. I miss him! Spirits like those are far too rare.
