“This is It,” the new song by Michael Jackson, surfaced online yesterday. It’s from the much-anticipated Jackson concert film This Is It, due October 28, and features backing vocals from the Jackson brothers. Here’s a video containing the song, and the lyrics which we’ve transcribed (with question marks where we weren’t entirely sure).

What do you think of MJ’s new one? Let us know.

THIS IS IT:

This is it
Here I stand
I’m the light of the world
I feel grand
Got this love
I can feel
And I know, yes, for sure it is real
And it feels as though I’ve seen your face a thousand times
And you said you really know me yourself
And I know that you have got addicted with your eyes (?)
But you say you’re gonna leave it for yourself
I never heard a single word about you
Falling in love wasn’t my plan
I never thought that I would be your lover
Come on, please, just understand
This is it, I can say
I’m the light of the world
Run away (?)
I can feel
This is real
Every time I’m in love, that I feel
And I feel as though I’ve known you since a thousand years
And you tell me that you’ve seen my face before
And you said to me you don’t want me hanging round
So many times, don’t want to do it anymore (?)
I never heard a single word about you
Falling in love wasn’t my plan
I never thought that I would be your lover
Come on, just understand
This is it
I can feel
I’m the light of the world
This is real
And this song, we can sing
And I’ll tell you I feel that way (?)
And I feel as though I’ve known you for a thousand years
You said you saw my face yourself
And you said you wanted to go with me on awhile (?)
And I know that it’s really for yourself
I never heard a single word about you
Falling in love wasn’t my plan
I never thought that I would be your lover
Come on please, dear, understand
I never heard a single word about you
Falling in love wasn’t my plan
I never thought that I would be your lover
Come on, dear, please understand

  1. Wow! These lyrics are not correct. Is anyone ever going to figure them out 100%? I’ve gone from web site to web site and no one has them correct. I listened to this song for about two hours straight. I know I’ve got about 95% of the lyrics correct. Everyone else has about 80%. Keep trying though. You have to listen to the song a lot. I hope the lyrics will be published with the CD when it comes out.
