"Hold My Hand" as written by and Claude/tuinfort Kelly....
Akon and MJ oh yeah yeah
This life don't last forever (Hold my hand)
So tell me what we're waiting for (Hold my hand)
We're better off being together (Hold my hand)
Being miserable alone (Hold my hand)

'Cause I been there before and you've been there before
But together we can be alright (Alright) (Yeah)
'Cause when it gets dark and when it gets cold we hold
Each other till we see the sunlight (Yeah)

So if you just hold my hand
Baby I promise that I'll do all I can
Things will go better if you just, hold my hand
Nothing can come between us if you just hold,
Hold my, hold, hold my, hold my hand, hold my hand

The nights are gettin' darker (Darker) (Hold my hand)
And there's no peace, inside (Inside) (Hold my hand)
So why make our lives harder (Hold my hand)
By fighting love tonight (So hold)

'Cause I been there before and you've been there before
But together we can be alright (Alright)
'Cause when it gets dark and when it gets cold
We hold each other till we see the sunlight

'Cause you could just hold my hand
Baby I promise that I'll do all I can (If you just, if you just)
Things will go better if you just hold my hand (Yeah)
Nothing can come between us if you just hold,
Hold my, hold, hold my, hold my hand, hold my hand

I can tell that you're tired of being lonely (Yeah)
Take my hand don't let go, baby hold me (Yeah)
Come to me and let me be your one and only (Hold my hand)
'Cause I can make it alright till the morning (Hold my hand)

I can tell that you're tired of being lonely (Hold my hand)
Take my hand don't let go, baby, hold me (Hold me)
Come to me an let me be your one and only (One and only)
'Cause I can make it alright till the morning (Hold my hand)

Hold my hand, (Yeah)
Baby I promise that I'll do all I can (Hold my hand)
Things will get better if you just, hold my hand
Nothing can come between us if you just hold,
Hold my, hold, hold my, hold my hand, hold my hand

Hold my hand (Yeah, yeah)
All I can (Hold my hand)
Hold my hand
Nothing can come between us if you just (Ooh)
Hold my (Ooh) hold my (Ooh) hold my hand, hold my hand

(Hold my hand)

    My OpinionI'm the biggest MJ fan. You name it I've bought it, recorded it, or downloaded it. I'm a virtual MJ Encylopedia. That being said I got to say I was dissapointed on this one. Love the track, can't stop listening but dissapointed.

    Firstly, there is confusion out there as to who's track this is and who the featuring artist is. From what I've read this is an MJ track with Akon featuring. Yet MJ - the King of Pop - really took the back foot on this track and let Akon take control and ride it all the way to home base. While Akon and MJ's voice blend beautifuly together Akon was overly dominant, duets parts are 80/20 Akon/MJ.

    While I never expect a lot of depth from MJ's lyrics I'd like to hear something a little more topical, personal or unique a la D.S., Tabloid Junkie, SOoML, Smile (cover). Instead he churned out another souless cliche ballad. Think Cry & One More Time.

    The music: Too simple, not much effort there. Listen to Billie Jeans track layering or Akon's Right Now Now Now.... that's awesome.

    Head out of the clouds and back to earth dude. Still waiting for to MJs next killer, ground-breaking track.

    General CommentFirst off I ADORE this song! And it makes me cry everytime I listen to it!! Both of their voices sound incredibly beautiful together. The piano at the end is brilliant
    Second I believe that this is an Akon song featuring MJ.

    General Commentit's so sad to hear this song after the death of MJ! it is a really beautiful song, and a little ironic. this song is about two people who are in love, and have both been through some tough times. they have both had rough lives, and together he feels like they are okay. he is promising that he won't ever hurt her or let her go. i especially love the verse:
    The nights are gettin' darker
    And there's no peace in sight
    So why make our lives harder
    By fighting love tonight.
    basically saying don't fight the love, go along with it because it will make them happier.
    really great song, too bad there wasn't an opportunity to record more Akon and MJ together.

    General CommentAnyone else think this sounds a little like it's a rip off of "Hold My Hand" by Hootie and the Blowfish? Not hating on MJ, I'm glad to see they're putting out his unreleased stuff, but this definitely sounds like a bit of a rip to me.
