"I'll Be There" as written by and Michael Jackson....
You and I must make a pact
We must bring salvation back
Where there is love, I'll be there (I'll be there)

I'll reach out my hand to you
I'll have faith in all you do
Just call my name and I'll be there (I'll be there)

I'll be there to comfort you
Build my world of dreams around you
I'm so glad that I found you

I'll be there with a love that's strong
I'll be your strength
I'll keep holdin' on (holdin' on)
Yes I will, yes I will

Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness, girl, is all I'm after
Whenever you need me, I'll be there (I'll be there)

I'll be there to protect you (yeah baby)
With unselfish love that respects you
Just call my name, I'll be there (I'll be there)

I'll be there to comfort you
Build my world of dreams around you
I'm so glad that I found you

I'll be there with a love that's strong
I'll be your strength
I'll keep holdin' on
Ooh ooh ooh
Yes I will (holdin' on, holdin' on)
Yes I will

If you should ever find someone new
I know he better be good to you
'Cause if he doesn't
I'll be there (I'll be there)

Don't you know baby I'll be there
I'll be there I'll be there

Just call my name, I'll be there (I'll be there)
Just look over your shoulders honey, ooh!
I'll be there, I'll be there,
Whenever you need me, I'll be there (I'll be there)

Don't you know baby
I'll be there, I'll be there
Just call my name, I'll be there (I'll be there)
Oh oh oh oh I'll be there, I'll be there

    General CommentDid you guys know he has the best selling album of all time??? Over 100 million copies world wide! The closest someone has gotten to that was about 40 million copies. NO ONE is as talented or as good as MJ was.

    My InterpretationTo me this is a song from a loving father to his daughter stating that he'll love her, protect her and be there for her as she grows up. Growing up is not easy to do and a child needs their parents' firm hand to guide them as they develop as well as set standards for them to follow. Salvation in the second line takes on a religious and moral theme, as well as well as deliverance from danger or failure. Faith in the fifth line signifies his trust and belief in her as well as God the creator. The song tells of their relationship in conversation form as the years pass and she develops from infant, to toddler, to young girl, to her teenage years and finally an adult. It's a touching song professing a parent's love for their child.
