Elizabeth, I Love You

Michael Jackson wrote this song exclusively for his dear friend Dame Elizabeth Taylor and performed it in honor of her 65th birthday on 16th February 1997.

Michael appreciated Elizabeth’s friendship dearly,

"I’ve met a lot of people in my life…and very few are real, real friends. Elizabeth is one of the most loyal, loving, caring people that I know.” – Michael Jackson

Lyrics

Welcome to Hollywood
That's what they told you
A child star in Hollywood
That's what they sold you
Grace with beauty, charm and talent
You would do, what you were told
But they robbed you, of your childhood
Took your youth, and sold it for gold

Elizabeth, I love you
You're every star that shines in the world to me
Elizabeth, can't you see that it's true?
Elizabeth, I love you
You're more than just a star to me

Lovely Elizabeth
You have surpassed them all
My friend Elizabeth
Learned to outlast them all
Many started, back when you did
Lost their way, and now they are gone
But look at you, a true survivor
Full of life, and carrying on

Elizabeth, I love you
You're every star, that shines in the world to me
Elizabeth, can't you see that it's true?
Elizabeth, I love you
You're more than just a star

This is your life
You seem to have it all
You reached your peak
They wanted you to fall
It's very sad, this world can be so bad
But through all the heartaches
When they put you down
You know, you were the victor
And you earned the crown
It's like, walking through the fire
Determined to win
You were, beating life's battles
Again and again

Elizabeth, I love you
You're every star that shines in the world to me
Elizabeth, can't you see that it's true?

Remember the time, I was all alone
You stood by my side and said
"Let's be strong"
You did all these things
That only a true friend can do

Elizabeth, I love you
The world knows your worth now
Of all the things on earth now
I pray one day I'll be just......like you!

Trivia

  • This song was performed only once by Jackson.
  • Neither Jackson nor Taylor had a normal childhood. They both had their childhoods stolen away from them which is why they were such close friends. MJ was friends with Macaulay Culkin for the same reason.
