Michael Jackson - The Lady In My Life

Rod Temperton song Michael recorded for his album, Thriller, released in December 1982.

Lyrics to an extra, unreleased verse appeared on the sleeve of the original pressings of Thriller. Cited by Michael as one of the most difficult tracks to cut for the album:

"We were used to doing a lot of takes, in order to get the vocal as nearly perfect as possible, but Quincy wasn't satisfied with my work on that song, even after literally dozens of takes," said Michael. "Finally, he took me aside late one session, and told me he wanted me to beg. That's what he said - he wanted me to go back to the studio and literally beg for it. So I went back in and had them turn off the studio lights, and close the curtain between the studio and the control room, so I wouldn't feel self-conscious. Q started the tape and I begged - the result is what you hear in the grooves."

It was included on a single for the first time when it featured on the UK release of Liberian Girl.

The Lady In My Life - Lyrics

There'll be no darkness tonight
Lady our love will shine (lighting the night)
Just put your trust in my heart and meet me in paradise
Girl, your every wonder in this world to me
A treasure time won't still away

So listen to my heart
LAy your body close to mine
Let me fill you with my dreams
I make you feel alright
And baby through the years gonna love you more each day
So I promise you tonight, you will always be the lady in my life

Lay back in my tenderness
Let's make this a night we won't forget
Girl, I need you sweet caress
Reach out to a fantasy
Two hearts on a beat of extasy
Come to me, Girl

And I will keep you warm through the shadows of the night
Let me touch you with my love
I can make you feel so right
And baby through the years even when we're old and gray
I will love you more each day
Cause you will always the lady in my life

Stay with me, I want you to stay with me
I need you by my side
Don't you go no where
(Ooh girl let me keep you warm)
I wanna keep you warm
(you are the lady in my life)
In my life
(Ooh girl let me keep you warm)
I wanna squeeze ya
(Always the lady in my life),I wanna touch you baby
(Ooh girl let me keep you warm) do do do
(Always the lady in my life) Your my lady and I love your girl
(Ooh girl let me keep you warm) I love you I love you I need you want you girl

(Ooh girl let me keep you warm) Don't You go no where
(Always the lady in my life) And I love you baby

All through the night

(Ooh girl let me keep you warm)I wanna keep you warm
(Always the lady in my life)Your my lady
