"This Is It" as written by Michael Jackson and Paul Anka....
One, two, three, four
This is it, here I stand
I'm the light of the world
I'll feel grand
Got this love, I can feel
And I know, yes for sure
It is real

And it feels as though I've seen your face one thousand times
And you said you really know me too yourself
And I know that you have got addicted with you eyes
But you say you're gonna leave it for yourself
Oh
I never heard a single word about you
Falling in love wasn't my plan
I never thought that I would be your lover
Come on baby just understand

This is it
I can say
I'm the light of your world
Run away
We can feel
This is real
Every time I'm in love that I feel

And I feel as though I've known you since a thousand years
And you tell me that you've seen my face before
And you said to me that you don't want me hanging around
Many times wanna do it here before
Oh yeah
I never heard a single word about you
Falling in love wasn't my plan
I never thought that I would be your lover
Come on baby just understand

This is it
I can feel
I'm to light up the world
This is real
Feel my song
We can say
And I tell you can feel that way

And I feels as though I've known you for a thousand years
And you said you saw my face yourself
And you said want to go with you on a while
And I know that it's really for myself
Oh yeah
I never heard a single word about you
Falling in love wasn't my plan
I never thought that I would be your lover
Come on please dear understand

I never heard a single word about you
Falling in love wasn't my plan
I never thought that I would be your lover
Come on dear please understand
Oh yeah

I never heard a single word about you
Falling in love wasn't my plan

    General CommentThis song is simply beautiful. I'm just sad it's the song he will ever reocrd. Michael Jackson can do no wrong.

    General Commentthis song is kind of underrated, i think it is beautiful...people said he kind of lost it but i think he had it in him this whole time and was just waiting for the right moment to bless us with his presence

    General CommentI like this song so much, but I heard about all the hoopla over it. Gosh, it kind of ruins the song.

    General CommentThe "hoopla" was apparantly sorted out very quickly and even Paul Anka said that it was just a mistake that could have happened with any song.


    Great song, quite obviously about falling in love at first sight. I hope a lot more unreleased MJ songs are made available, I'm sick of the constant repackaging of MJ greatest hit cd's.

    General CommentI love this song along with all his other ones. He was so talented, it sucks he will never make another album.

    Song Meaning"This is it" should say enough, every word is clear and the message very simple but the hard thing for some more about what some WANT to hear and interprate than just LISTEN to the meaning "This is IT"

    General CommentThough it's clear that the song is not finished from Michael's hand it's a beautiful song.
    Not his best, but certinly not his worst either.
    A sweet and sentimental song that I think will fit perfect at the end credits of the movie.
    It's sure to bring out a tear or two.

    General CommentJust pointing out some lyric corrections

    In that first verse the correct lyric is: "And I know that you have got addicted with you eyes"

    the following bridge is actually: "This is it Like I said I’m a light of your world Run away We can feel
    This is real Every time I’m in love, yeah I feel"

    the next one is actually: "This is it I can feel I’m the light of the world This is real Feel my song
    we can say And I tell you feel that way"
