Michael Jackson – You Are Not Alone

Michael Jackson – You Are Not Alone

Michael Joseph Jackson was an American singer, songwriter, and dancer. Dubbed the “King of Pop”, he is regarded as one of the most significant cultural figures of the 20th century. He released this amazing song titled “You Are Not Alone”, which serves as track 24 on HIStory: Past, Present And Future – Book I.

“You Are Not Alone” was the first song in the history of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart to debut at the top position, and it was also Jackson’s last to reach #1 in the US. The song also reached #1 in Spain, France, Switzerland, New Zealand and the UK.

It was Michael Jackson’s 13th US chart-topper, allowing him to break the tie he had for third place with The Supremes for most #1 songs in the US – a title he would hold on his own until 2013 when Rihanna tied Jackson with her appearance on Eminem’s “The Monster” giving her a 13th #1. In 2016, Rihanna surpassed Jackson when her song “Work” became her 14th chart-topper.

The song’s genesis was a phone call to R. Kelly’s management asking him to write a song for Jackson. At first, Kelly thought it was a joke, but when he learned Jackson’s request was indeed serious, Kelly immediately entered the studio and wrote “You Are Not Alone”. When he played the track for Jackson over the phone, Jackson approved it without change and flew to Chicago to record his vocals over Kelly’s on the track.

The track was officially released on August 15, 1995  and was produced by Michael Jackson & R. Kelly.

Lyrics;

[Verse 1]
Another day has gone, I’m still all alone
How could this be? You’re not here with me
You never said goodbye, someone tell me, why
Did you have to go and leave my world so cold?

[Pre-Chorus]
Every day I sit and ask myself, “How did love slip away?”
Something whispers in my ear and says

[Chorus]
That you are not alone, I am here with you
Though you’re far away, I am here to stay
But you are not alone, I am here with you
Though we’re far apart, you’re always in my heart
But you are not alone

[Post-Chorus]
‘Lone, ‘lone
Why, ‘lone

[Verse 2]
Just the other night, I thought I heard you cry
Asking me to come and hold you in my arms
I can hear your prayers, your burdens I will bear
But first I need your hand, then forever can begin

[Pre-Chorus]
Every day I sit and ask myself, “How did love slip away?”
Something whispers in my ear and says

[Chorus]
That you are not alone, I am here with you
Though you’re far away, I am here to stay
But you are not alone, I am here with you
Though we’re far apart, you’re always in my heart
But you are not alone

[Bridge]
Oh, whisper three words and I’ll come runnin’
And girl you know that I’ll be there
I’ll be there

[Chorus]
That you are not alone, I am here with you
Though you’re far away, I am here to stay
But you are not alone, I am here with you
Though we’re far apart, you’re always in my heart
That you are not alone, I am here with you
(You are not alone, I am here with you)
Though you’re far away, I am here to stay
(Though you’re far away, you and me)
But you are not alone, I am here with you
(You are always in my heart)
Though we’re far apart, you’re always in my heart
For you are not alone (Not alone, oh)

[Outro]
You are not alone, you are not alone
Say it again
You are not alone, you are not alone
Not alone, not alone
If you just reach out for me, girl
In the morning, in the evening
Not alone, not alone
You and me, not alone, oh!
Together, together
Not not being alone!
Not not being alone!
You believe in me!
