This Is It Lyrics



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...

    This is Michael Jackson’s message to his fans. He has been on stage for a long time and has always been adored by people, but with adoration also comes hatred. He is saying that while he loves his fans, he can’t go on and this is it for his career. I think the lyrics are very beautiful and the metaphors he uses are very heartfelt.

    MJ was a magnificent artist. "This is it" seems to say he could no longer give any more of himself. He tries because of the love he has for the sake of the people who became part of life as a singer. My deepest regret is the demands of giving more of himself when he had already given out.

    I believe he’s talking about music.. as he’s been doing this his WHOLE life & now “this is it” he was finally hanging it all up.

    in my opinion - mj singing 'this is it' is very sad because he is singing about seeing someones face 'a thousand times' but cant quite remember and 'falling in love wasnt his plan'. i miss mj everyday and i love him 'with the bottom of my heart!' i fell in love with mj when he was going through a difficult time with the press (because of his plastic surgery and vitiligo changing his skin). i remember one day seeing him with olive coloured skin (bad era) and his face getting lighter and lighter until he was 'lily white' but not once did i judge him because i knew it was perfectly normal as i have eczema which makes my hands like they have been burnt!
