"She's Out Of My Life" as written by and Tom Bahler....
She's out of my life
She's out of my life
And I don't know whether to laugh or cry
I don't know whether to live or die
And it cuts like a knife
She's out of my life

It's out of my hands
It's out of my hands
To think for two years she was here
And I took her for granted I was so cavalier
Now the way that it stands
She's out of my hands

So I've learned that love's not possession
And I've learned that love won't wait
Now I've learned that love needs expression
But I learned too late

She's out of my life
She's out of my life
Damned indecision and cursed pride
Kept my love for her locked deep inside
And it cuts like a knife
She's out of my life

    General CommentYes! It surprised me how much he managed to sound like Micheal though. It was funny.

    General CommentI'm listening to this now. I always thought it was sad, but now that I'm actually looking at the lyrics, it's bringing tears to my eyes. I'd forgotten just how simple, yet amazingly beautiful this song is. MJ sings this song with so much emotion. Stunning.

    General CommentI know exactly what Michael's singing about here. Sometimes I stop up and realise that I'm forgetting to enjoy and be in the moment instead of allways trying to get to the next thing. I just broke up with my girlfriend and now I feel like I haven't enjoyed it as much as I should have. I took her for granted I was so Cavalier. Now the way that it stands she's out of my hands.
