Another record from the Michael Jackson vault was released today. According to MichaelJackson.com, the bittersweet tune was written at the time of Thriller and features dulcet strings and acoustic guitars, with the King of Pop singing about a woman who won’t take his hand.
“I never thought she’d leave me here forever/ But who knows just what the future brings/ And would you like to go with me/ And she answered no to me/ Well guess I learned my lesson much too soon,” a broken-hearted MJ sings on the track, helmed by him and producer John McClain.
This and nine other previously unheard songs will be included on his posthumous album MICHAEL, due December 14.
Listen to the song on iTunes Ping.
