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

Everyday I sit and ask myself
How did love slip away

    My interpretation to the lyrics are how him and a girl he's in love with weren't getting along, so they were going their separate ways and now he wants to be with her again.

    see this song was written by R-Kelley and this song is was written for a teenager who suffered through a miscarriage and Michael had thought it was a love song so you know him not knowing what the song truly meant he realized it and it became a hit then he realized the song was about R-Kelly's 15 year old wife that had suffered a miscarriage. So yeah I think that makes the song even more beautiful.

    Michael is all alone since his love left him. But when he thinks about this,it seems to him that someone who loves him whispers in his ears that he is not alone and that person is with him.Then Michael understands the person whom he loves can not be alone because he is always with her and keeps her in his heart.

    I have heard this song so many times but it just hit me that this song may very well be about his love and heartbreak over Diana Ross. Listen to it again. Read the lyrics.

    as we all know michael did not write this song. he chose it to sing. like he did shes out of my life. well as i beleive he chose this song to try to let his true love know no matter were he was or who he was with hes love was always with her. and she would never be without him or his love.and he would always feel her. and if she ever called out to him he was always there for her.she would always be in his heart. corney or not

    My husband passed away this morning. As I say with him last night I played some music on YouTube that he liked. One was a song from Nova Scotia. When I clicked on the song to play this song played instead. He was in a sedated state and I cried because the words were so fitting for that very moment. It will now always hold a special place in my heart.

    I think the song is to let people know others suffer in various ways. So we arent alone in our suffering . For whatevet separates people their place in our heart remains.

    A so called woman friend of my partner dedicated the song to him. Should I be concerned about it/their friendship??

    When I listen to the song, it makes me feel like it is dedicated to those with depression and suicidal thoughts "You are not alone, I am here with you" And also telling those who lost their lives to suicide or abrupt deaths, saying that no matter how far away they are (heaven...etc) they will always be with us and here letting them know, even when it seems like you are all alone, that there will always be someone or something with you.

    This so g reminds me of my dad who passed away when I was 11 and I think the first verse is MJ singing to a loved one that he lost and then the second verse is God talking to him.

    I am mriared to a living example of the changes the grace of God through Jesus Christ can make. I praise God that we are in a Christian support community that has allowed him the change.Thanks again for words we all need to hear.Sharon

    Something whispers in my ear and says
    That you are not alone
    For I am here with you
    Though you're far away
    I am here to stay

    This is about GOD, every time he feels alone or lonely, GOD's reminds him that GOD is with him and even though seems far but actually GOD is near, just pray

    This song is about God and how even tho we can't hear or see Him, we must trust that He is with us... Especially when times get hard and we don't understand... "I can hear your prayers, your burdens I will bear. But first I need your hand then forever can begin"... Who do we pray to? Who bears our burdens? Michael was/is a very spiritual man... To the day he died, his faith was never shaken... he used his gift to spread Gods message to love all... no matter how famous he became, he remained humble... He lived his life imitating Jesus (which is how we all should)... he even said so in multiple interviews... Michael is truly an angel... Ever look up his name? N

    When I watched this video, I noticed it featured Lisa Marie, and when I heard the commentry on it by Jackson's family and friends, my interpretation became this;

    This was to assure the world that their love, no matter how short it was, was real. It was written to Lisa Marie as a love song, assuring her she wasn't alone.

    "Who Is It" is pretty much the turn-around of this song.
