"Speechless" as written by and Michael Jackson....
Your love is magical, that's how I feel
But I have not the words here to explain
Gone is the grace for expressions of passion
But there are worlds and worlds of ways to explain
To tell you how I feel
But I am speechless, speechless
That's how you make me feel
Though I'm with you I am far away and nothing is for real
When I'm with you I am lost for words, I don't know what to say
My head's spinning like a carousel, so silently I pray
Helpless and hopeless, that's how I feel inside
Nothing's real, but all is possible if God is on my side
When I'm with you I am in the light where I cannot be found
It's as though I am standing in the place called Hallowed Ground
Speechless, speechless, that's how you make me feel
Though I'm with you I am far away and nothing is for real
I'll go anywhere and do anything just to touch your face
There's no mountain high I cannot climb
I'm humbled in your grace
Speechless, speechless, that's how you make me feel
Though I'm with you I am lost for words and nothing is for real
Speechless, speechless, that's how you make me feel
Though I'm with you I am far away, and nothing is for real
Speechless, speechless, that's how you make me feel
Though I'm with you I am lost for words and nothing is for real
Speechless your love is magical, that's how I feel
But in your presence I am lost for words
Words like, "I love you."

    General Commenthow can true love be better defined than within these simple but effective lyrics. This song shows how the power of love can commit our minds to overcome any barriers or obstacles just to be with that one whose mear presencecan leave us lost for words because of their eternal love, understanding and compassion. Trually an excellent song, it really doesn't get the recognition it deserves.

    General Commentaw, I really wish I hadn't read Allison9481's comment, I always liked to think of it as more of a romantic song. It's still perfect, probably one of my favorites.

    General CommentOmigoshh.
    Words cannot express how amazed I am at this song.
    It just brings such a great feeling of comforting love.
    I heard the song for the first time right now and tears just came to my eyes and I was crying.. I love this song.
    I can never get tired of it.
    I strongly agree with deankavanagh1234.
    This song DEFINITELY deserves WAY more recognition

    "VIBE: Tell me about the inspiration for "Speechless". It's very loving.
    MJ: You'll be surprised. I was with these kids in Germany, and we had a big water-balloon fight - I'm serious - and I was so happy after the fight that I ran upstairs in their house and wrote "Speechless". Fun inspires me. I hate to say that, because it's such a romantic song. But it was the fight that did it. I was happy, and I wrote it in it's entirety right there. I felt it would be good enough for the album. Out of the bliss comes magic, wonderment, and creativity."

    General CommentMichael has said that he wrote this about his children. One day he said he was climbing trees with them and he was so insired by them that this song came into his head.
