“So listen to my heart
Lay your body close to mine
Let me fill you with my dreams
I can make you feel alright
And baby, through the years
Gonna love you more each day
So I promise you tonight
That you will always be the lady in my life”
It’s okay to admit that you just cried a little bit…we understand. Michael sang these lyrics on his hit love song, “Lady In My Life” on his world famous Thriller album. Classic song that brings tears to anyone’s eyes.
“Do you remember
How we used to talk
Ya know we’d stay on the phone at night til dawn
Do you remember
All the things we said
“Like ‘I love you so, I’ll never let you go’”
Do you remember when you first fell in love? These lyrics will give you all the butterflies you feel when you’re falling in love with someone…*sigh* Michael sang these lyrics on his hit, “Remember the Time” from the album Dangerous.
“So baby be mine
(Baby you got to be mine)
And girl I’ll give you all I got to give
So baby be my girl (all the time)
And we can share this ecstasy
As long as we believe in love”
If you didn’t believe in love before, you will after listening to this song. Honestly, the entire song melts our hearts every time. He sang these lyrics on his song, “Baby Be Mine” which is also from his Thriller album.
“Girl, when you dance there’s a magic that must be love
Just take it slow
‘Cause we got so far to go
When you feel that heat
And we’re gonna ride the boogie
Share that beat of love”
Nothing’s better than thinking about dancing with the love of your life! These lyrics make you feel happy inside and put a smile on your face as you reminisce or fantasize about falling in love while dancing all night long. Michael sang these lyrics on his hit “Rock With You” from his 1979 album, Off The Wall. Simply, a beautiful song.
“Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness, girl, that’s all I’m after
Whenever you need me, I’ll be there
I’ll be there to protect you,
With an unselfish love, I respect you.
Just call my name and I’ll be there”
We know you’re crying and gagging because these lyrics are just too lovely and cute. “I’ll Be There,” which he performed with the Jackson 5, is still to this day, one of the greatest love songs EVER.
We thank you Michael Jackson for making us fall in love time and time again!
