"One Day In Your Life" as written by Anastacia L. Newkirk, Samuel J. Watters and Louis John Biancaniello....
One day in your life
You'll remember a place
Someone touching your face
You'll come back and you'll look around, you'll

One day in your life
You'll remember the love you found here
You'll remember me somehow
Though you don't need me now
I will stay in your heart
And when things fall apart
You'll remember one day

One day in your life
When you find that you're always waiting
For a love we used to share
Just call my name, and I'll be there
You'll remember me somehow
Though you don't need me now
I will stay in your heart
And when things fall apart
You'll remember one day

One day in your life
When you find that you're always lonely
For a love we used to share
Just call my name, and I'll be there

    General CommentThis is one of the most beautiful, heart-breaking song I've ever heard. I've been lovin' it since I was in high school.

    I think this song talks about beautiful memories of the past. We had joy in our past, we had someone to hold on to... But then time passes, we grow, we have a lonely life, we lose everything... And then we kinda remember our past, remember the warmth of it, just to make us feel better...

    Anyway, my favorite line is:
    "Though you don't need me now...
    I will stay in your heart..."

    It's one of the best lines I've ever heard.

    General CommentIt's too bad only one other person has commented on this song :( I can only hope that most of the world
    has heard the rest of Michael's music- not just the mainstream stuff. This song is so incredibly beautiful,
    I wish more people had heard of it.

    To me, it's about telling someone you love that one day they are going to remember what we had, and want
    what we had- and all they have to do is find you. It seems more like he's hoping she'll feel that way,
    not that it's inevitable.

    Michael's voice is great on this track! My dad used to play this a lot when i was a little girl, and
    it's definately one of my favorites!

    Song MeaningThis Song Is Just A Gorgeous Song~Up there w/ She's Out Of My Life&You Are Not Alone. Personally I feel this song is Better than she's out of my life but that's niether here nor there...I just LOVE this song, the harmonies, the backgrounds, the ay he softly emotes the faith&pain of this situation just takes my breath away..... They just don't make ballads.....NO, they just don't make MUSIC like this anymore&now that M*J has passed away, this song is for the world b/c America left Michael hanging for quite some time after those HORRIBLE HORRIBLE accusations(Alleged&Fabricated) were put out against him to destroy his image. Those carges destroyed HIM&in this song I feel he's saying though we didn't need him back then 1 day we will&today is that day:( We're ALL longing for the love we ALL shared W/the Legend, The Blessing, The True King~Michael Joseph Jackson

    General CommentThis song reminds me of someone hoping that one day this person that has walked out of the relationship will realise what they had, that what they wanted and needed was there the whole time and recognise what they've lost and that that person will eventually (and hopefully) return, kind of like a prodigal lover analogy

    General CommentThis song was stuck in my head in the middle of the night. Was dumped recently by my ex, though we still love each other very much, we've grown apart. The piece:

    "You'll remember me somehow
    Though you don't need me now
    I will stay in your heart"

    Really hits the spot for me and my ex. Just brings tears to my eyes.
