"Dear Michael" as written by Elliott Willensky and Hal Davis....
She wrote "Dear Michael
You'll probably never get this letter
Michael, I wrote you a hundred times before
Knowing how I feel
I'll write a hundred more"

"Dear Michael, every time your record's on
(Michael Michael)
Michael, I close my eyes and sing along
Dreaming you're singing to me."

And then she wrote,
"Michael, I love you
I held the tears back long as I can
I'm sealing my feelings in this envelope
'Cause I want to be more than just your number one fan"

I'm gonna answer your letter
(Michael Michael)
I'll start beginning with the ABC's of loving you
(I love ya)
(She wrote)
(Michael Michael)
(I love ya)
Your letter really touched my heart
(She wrote)
I've been dreaming of meeting the picture
That you send along, signed with all your love
(Michael Michael)
(I wrote ya)
(She wrote)

I'm gonna write you back, ouuh, I promess you that
(Won't you write me back?, please write me back)

Girl, I think I love you
(Michael Michael)
Hurry, hurry mister postman, take my letter, tell her I love her
(She wrote)
(Won't you write me back, please write me back)
(Michael Michael)
(She wrote)

Hurry, hurry mister postman, take my letter tell her I love her
(Won't you write me back, please write me back)

(Michael Michael)
Yeah,
(I wrote you)
(She wrote)
I'm gonna write you back
I promess you that

    General CommentMaybe he can love her from nothing lore than the letter in the same way we all love him for nothing more than his music...
    But I dont think that's how he mean the song...I think it was just meant to be about him appreciating his fans and loving them...I loved you too, Michael. I miss you.

    My InterpretationIn this intoxicating and dreamy song, I vision seeing Michael going through fan mail and spots one letter for no other reason than pure kismet. He opens it and is touched by this particular fan's letter. In the letter she reveals deeply kept feelings of love for Michael which creates a bond he cant ignore. He writes back and tells her he loves her while patiently awaiting her reply.

    General CommentI like this song.
    It has a nice, slow beat and feel.
    It's not a letter about extreme fan-star obsession but the fact that he says he loves her at the end always makes me wonder.
    How can he love her just from the letter?

    Nevertheless, I love this gorgeous song.
