Lyrics of Better on the Other Side

I remember the first time I seen you moonwalk
I believed I could do anything
you made the world dance
you made the music come to life

This the type of song that make the angels cry
I look up in the sky and I wonder why
Why you had to go, go
I know it's better on the other side
You were chosen from the sky
Never gon' let you go (the king, woah! - Polow da Don)

Who's Michael Jackson, you're Michael Jackson
I'm Michael Jackson, we all Michael Jackson

I guess what I'm asking is everybody bow their head for a legend
Don't breathe for a second
Now let the air out, grab the hand of somebody you care about
So you can hear my message, my confession
Someone tell Usher, I seen the moonwalk
I guess the young thriller touched him
Like he touched me, like he touched you
So carry on his legacy, something I must do
So I trust you lighting candles, concrete visuals
Me and my brothers listen to Jackson 5 in the living room
First thing I did when I heard was call puff
'Cause him and Mike tried to stop the beef between us
Who was us? Me and fifty, that beef is dead
Him and Mike Jackson gonna take us to the ledge


As I'm pouring out this liquor candles start to flicker
When list (?) my air ones, MJ was my nigger
Not the one that play ball, the one with the Hollywood star
and since I'm a Hollywood star I'm gonna tell you my story
Never had a family that close
Never see Barry Gordy walking through interscope
Just like me they always had Mike in a scope
No matter what you say, I'm gonna love him and he's still dope
let me take you back to 85 when I was in a zone
Dancing for my momma Thriller jacket with all the zippers on
Now I'm doing 90 'bout to crash in this Aston
Listening to Outkast, I'm sorry Mrs. Jackson
Anything I can ever do to better you your son was our king so we won't Corretta you
I'm writing this letter to all the Jackson kids
We all Jackson kids, time to let us through


People can say what they want to say about you
But we gon' remember the miracles that you showed us
Through your music, through your dance, through your philanthropy
You were the one that made us all realise that we are the world
You are the one that showed us we can moonwalk
You gave us the beat, you gave us the rhythm, you gave us the soul
Through us your legacy lives on

We can't stop now
We wont stop now, Mike Jackson

This the kind of song to make the angels cry
Look up in the sky
Ask God why, why, why, do we live and let it die
