Angel's intro)
(Piano intro)

Hold me
Like the River Jordan
And I will then say to thee
You are my friend

Carry me
Like you are my brother
Love me like a mother
Will you be there?

When weary
Tell me will you hold me
When wrong,...

    I believe Michael Jackson was simply and purely asking for support during his child molestation charges for which he pleaded innocent and was eventually cleared. Period .

    Obviously, you could go and take each refrain and explain the beautiful rhymes and caring meanings, but in the end he was crying out for support. In other words, "you've loved me and stuck by me this long, please don't abandon me now when I need you the most."... and more importantly… "Will you love me for the person I am and not the personality?"
    ( never mind the fact that the music industry was pulling him in every direction and demanding so much of him, he could barely keep up. They treated him like an ATM and not a human being )

    - " everyone trying to take control of me… seems that the world has a role for me… "

    ( I didn't abandon him. I've always loved MJ for the "giving" part of him… The shy man, but explosive performer was also human and bled just like the rest of us. I don't think I could ever find myself "Wigging out" and passing out like people did just upon the sight of him… That's ridiculous. That's idolization. The only person I idolize is God. But, I respected, was thankful for his gift to humanity and I loved him like a brother. ) ;)

    Love the person. Hate the sin. ( we all sin… But, we all need to be loved )

    This song is such an amazing song I'm a fan of mj since little and he has inspired me and continue to inspire me with his positive love to humans. This song shows us that no matter what problem we face someone will be there in regards to ur sorrow. And yes mj I will be there for u always and forever.

    This really is a beautiful song. It's amazing that he was able to produce so many songs with positive meanings considering all the difficulties he faced during his career and his childhood. In some ways, I wonder if his zeal to express love for children was his own way of trying to ensure that others didn't have to suffer the way he did as a child. (I'm not a psychologist or anything, it's just a guess)

    I feel like as the "smoke" clears, it's much easier to see that regardless of whatever happened in his personal life (I'd rather be optimistic and hope that rumors were not true...), Michael tried his best to be a positive role model.
