Another day has gone
I'm still all alone
How could this be
You're not here with me
You never said goodbye
Someone tell me why
Did you have to go
And leave my world so cold

Everyday I sit and ask myself
How did love slip away
Something whispers in my ear and says
That you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though you're far away
I am here to stay

But you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though we're far apart
You're always in my heart
But you are not alone

'Lone, 'lone
Why, 'lone

Just the other night
I thought I heard you cry
Asking me to come
And hold you in my arms
I can hear your prayers
Your burdens I will bear
But first I need your hand
Then forever can begin

Everyday I sit and ask myself
How did love slip away
Something whispers in my ear and says
That you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though you're far away
I am here to stay

For you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though we're far apart
You're always in my heart
For you are not alone

Whisper three words and I'll come runnin'
And girl you know that I'll be there
I'll be there

You are not alone
For I am here with you
Though you're far away
I am here to stay
For you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though we're far apart
You're always in my heart

For you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though you're far away
I am here to stay

For you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though we're far apart
You're always in my heart

For you are not alone

    General Comment:I had to leave someone behind due to unforeseen circumstances. I am unable to contact them in anyway due to safety reasons so everyday before I go to sleep I light a candle for that person and tell them how much I still think of them and pray and long to see them again.
    One evening I turned on my computer and was thinking of this person when this song came to my mind. I hadn't heard it in years and could not even remember the lyrics. So I looked it up and played it on utube and was so amazed. It answered the question in my mind...and heart.
    It's so amazing how music can touch so many people in different situations.

    General Comment:This is one of Michael's best songs ever. It's sad we lost a legend. It will be nice to see how everything plays out and find out the truth about how he died. I'm sure his Dr. had something to do with it. This is a tragic event, we lost a LEGEND and he will NEVER BE REPLACED. Much love Mike, you will be missed. RIP

    General Comment:It's almost an inspirational song. If you change the lyrics a little, it could mean that God is telling you that you aren't alone and He's always there.

    General Comment:when I hear this song it is very comforting yet so sad at the same time especially since he died yesterday I really like the beginning line " another day has gone" it sadly makes you think of all the wasted nights you spend alone when you wish your with someone you loved.

    Memory:This song has a lot more meaning now, Michael Jackson will always be in his fans' hearts and he will be here with us in the wonderful music he left us with. It's so sad of what happened, we've lost a wonderful loving person in the world.

    General Comment:In my opinion, it kinda just hit me now, but maybe it means like, he (or anybody else in this situation) can be so miserable over maybe a recent break up OR maybe someone close to you died and you just feel so alone and lonely, but what the chorus sounds like is that, God is telling you, you are not alone, and that he is always there with you no matter what you are going through. Because he says "everyday I sit and ask myself How did love slip away" but then he says SOMETHING whispers into his ear and says..."you are not alone".
