The Schleiters remember Michael Jackson in AKTE documentary

June 26, 2020

The AKTE documentary about the Schleiter family and their friendship with Michael Jackson aired on German TV sometime in January this year, but its English version was made available to us only recently, thanks to AlfonsMeir who uploaded it here.

The Schleiter family

Many of us have probably not heard of the Schleiters except their emphatic “Enough is enough” letter in support of Michael Jackson as previously they never spoke to the press.

I encourage everyone to read the letter and watch the documentary as the latter is quite accurate in describing Michael Jackson’s tribulations beginning with 1993 (except the wrong age of the accuser and some minor details) and covers almost everything up to Martin Bashir’s film and La Toya’s various performances in this or that attire for and against her brother.

Anyone can watch the documentary themselves to form an opinion, but your impression will not be full if you don’t know what is insinuated about Anton Schleiter by Michael’s detractors.  In fact it is the comparison between these freaks’ innuendoes and the truth which is a real eye-opener here.

For example, a “MJandboys” site made a post about Anton Schleiter in November 2016 following the usual pattern – all attention is certainly on the boy who is called a “special friend” of MJ while the boy’s sister Franziska is certainly ignored and is totally non-existent for the writers. Here is a sample:

Michael Jackson and Anton Schleiter (1995-2006)

 “Whenever Michael Jackson toured the world, he used the possibility to make a new young male friend. Those boys are known to the public as special friends, but a few boys are simply overlooked. …Anton was one of the many boys whom Jackson befriended during the 1990s, but he never got the attention by the media that most of Jackson’s young friends receive, although he was very close friends with Jackson.

It was November 1995, when Michael Jackson performed at a German TV show called “Wetten dass…?”. MJ met 12-year-old Anton Schleiter backstage. Anton became a special friend of Jackson after meeting him and started to spend time with Jackson on a regular basis.”

And this is what the AKTE documentary tells us about the way the Schleiters befriended Michael Jackson:

02:55 Hamburg Niendorf, at the forest border there is an unremarkable one family house that made history almost 15 years ago (in 2006) because back then superstar Michael Jackson lived and slept for multiple weeks in this house. Here he spent carefree days with the Schleiter family including their children Franziska and Anton, today aged 34 and 36 (so in 2006 they were 20 and 22 years old respectively). Private videos remind them of an unforgettable time with their world-famous friend.

03:31 (Anton) “The personal time with Michael was – I mean when we just talked or played games – he was simply a great person and so loving/caring that you felt so comfortable…. Everything else became irrelevant. That’s just how it was. [It was like] coincidentally our best friend Michael was also the superstar Michael Jackson”.

 (Franziska) “The best time was actually when he came to our house. This was the best time.”

 (Anton) “This was so exciting and great as a kid, but later it was true friendship.”

Actually the Schleiters met Michael Jackson 25 years ago (in 1995, when Anton was 13 and Franziska was 11 respectively) and this is how Franziska describes the first time they met Michael Jackson:

04:27 (Franziska) “My father worked in the music industry and he had to go to “Wetten Dass…?” [1995] and Anton learned that Michael would also be there. So we as a family decided to go there too, like a family trip and to see Michael live.

We were also backstage and Anton and me had our tickets and we wanted to have an autograph. Our father said “Now or never”. I was so scared. But in the end I followed my father’s advice and we went to him and got an autograph”.

Back then we thought this would be the biggest thing that can ever happen that we met him and got an autograph. But then it appeared that he asked through his managers if we wanted to join him to Phantasialand [amusement park] the next day.  He invited us and we spent the day together. And this was such a wonderful day. We couldn’t believe it and said “Wow, we spent a day with Michael Jackson!” This was incredible.

Franziska and Anton are sitting in front of Michael Jackson, and MJ is sitting with two small girls (all screenshots are from the documentary)

And then we were so lucky that he even called us the day after and from this point on the friendship developed. This is somehow… I’m still stunned when I’m saying this.”

 05:49 (voiceover) We are with the family at the Niendorfer Gehege, a forest park in West Hamburg. Here they spent a lot of time with their famous friend.

06:02 (Anton) ‘When he was with us he really liked it that he could be undercover /incognito.

(Franziska) “Michael wanted to be solely with us, no bodyguards and they [the bodyguards] said “Are you crazy? There are many things that can happen to you”. But this was exactly what he wanted, escaping from everything, to be himself and being with us like a normal person, spending time as if there wasn’t this hectic around him”.

06:42 The Schleiters never wanted to comment on the private moments in public.

(Wolfgang, father): “The situation today is different – after the new accusations were made, which are so shabby, and he himself cannot speak anymore.

And personally, what hurts me most is that his children have to experience how their father is dragged through the mud. And that’s probably the time that we have to raise our hand. We usually avoided it also in the sense of Michael’s wish to keep it private and we gladly respected it, also posthumously. But now it is a different situation.  And I know that others also raise their hands to speak up for Jackson. I think it is a good thing that now there are also completely different voices coming and we gladly line up with them”.

In the meantime the “MJandboys” keep their own record of Anton Schleiter’s activities. 

“Jackson returned to Germany, because of the HIStory world tour and 14-year-old Anton became his constant companion throughout the whole country.

1997, Bremen: The teen was even seen disappearing into Jackson’s hotel, along with MJ.  In 1997, Jackson stayed about three weeks in Germany. Anton was alone with him for nearly a month, from which you can draw the conclusion that Jackson liked the kid. Their time together was very special to Jackson, they inspired him to write the romantic song “Speechless”.

Why didn’t it seem weird to anyone that Jackson was inspired by a 14-year-old boy to write Speechless?

The above is a myth while the AKTE documentary describes the true circumstances under which “Speechless” came into being:

1:23:54 Franziska and Anton show us exclusive videos, recorded in private moments with Michael Jackson, like a water balloon fight in the family’s garden.  Moments that they describe as the best in their lives. Therefore we were allowed to watch the videos, but not to show them publicly.   

(Reporter) “Is this Michael Jackson laughing?” (everyone laughs)

The Schleiters still feel so close to Michael Jackson that they want to protect their friendship with the superstar. The relationship was so close that Jackson dedicated a song to them after the water balloon fight: “Speechless”:

“Special thanks to Anton and Franziska… I love you with all my heart, Michael Jackson”.

1:24:53 (Anton) “We didn’t notice it, he just went upstairs to change his clothes because he was soaking wet. He was upstairs in his room for an hour and then he came downstairs and was all smiles that he had written a really great song. Because he was having the most fun he’s had in a long time”.

So the song wasn’t about the boy, but about the long-forgotten feeling of carefree happiness Michael experienced for the first time in several years amid much fun and much laugh with two other carefree water balloon fighters. Inspiration is like that – it may come at most unexpected moments in your life, like “Speechless” came to Michael Jackson and could remind him of a woman he loved, or more probably inspired him to a prayer to God:

Your love is magical, that’s how I feel
But I have not the words here to explain
Gone is the grace for expressions of passion
But there are worlds and worlds of ways to explain
To tell you how I feel

But I am speechless, speechless
That’s how you make me feel
Though I’m with you I am far away
And nothing is for real

When I’m with you I am lost for words
I don’t know what to say
My head’s spinning like a carousel
So silently I pray

Helpless and hopeless
That’s how I feel inside
Nothing’s real, but all is possible
If God is on my side

When I’m with you I am in the light where I cannot be found
It’s as though I am standing in the place called Hallowed Ground

Speechless, speechless
That’s how you make me feel
Though I’m with you I am far away
And nothing is for real

I’ll go anywhere
And do anything
Just to touch your face
There’s no mountain high
I cannot climb
I’m humbled in your grace

Speechless, speechless
That’s how you make me feel
Though I’m with you I am lost for words
And nothing is for real

Speechless, speechless
That’s how you make me feel
(You’re always on my mind)
Though I’m with you I am lost for words
And nothing is for real
Speechless

Your love is magical, that’s how I feel
But in your presence I am lost for words
Words like—like “I love you”

“Your love is magical – I am with you and I am far away – helpless and hopeless, but all is possible if God is on my side – when I’m with you I don’t know what to say – You are always on my mind – I’m humbled in your grace” …..

Gone is the time when Michael could pray with the words of passion – now he prays silently, having no words to express his feelings in such moments of sheer happiness when all he feels is that he is standing in the light .

If anything the song could be the expression of Michael’s gratitude to God that even in the most torturous years of his life he is not abandoned by the Almighty – who once again reminded him of His presence by giving him a chance to feel like a happy, cheerful and carefree child in the company of two kids.

Or it could be a remembrance of a woman whose love can also be magical. Why a woman (and not what Michael’s detractors will suggest to you)?

In the documentary Bill Whitfield, Michael’s personal bodyguard since 2006, same as many other people close to Jackson, did not have a moment of doubt about Michael’s attachments and said that he was ‘into women’.

52:47 (Whitfield)” I got to know Mr. Jackson quite well. I have been working in personal security for 25 years and one of the things you do in this business is to keep a close eye on the client. You know what the person likes, what he doesn’t like. And I’ve watched Mr. Jackson enough to know that hurting children – he wasn’t into that. Women. He was into women.

(voiceover) That’s what the Schleiters say too.

53:32 (Anton) “Of course, the media liked to report that Michael and I somehow had a relationship., that there was a love relationship. But of course, that’s not true. The media always wanted to connect Michael with little boys, so they had some fun writing this, for whatever reason.

Michael wasn’t just friends with me, he was friends with the whole family. And they always reduced it to me when it came to our friendship, but it wasn’t true at all.

I have been with my wife since 2001, and she was also there [with MJ] many times. There was no love relationship between Michael and me. I had a love relationship with my wife”.

Today Anton and his wife have two little children.

55:05 (Whitfield) “We had normal guy talk. When we as bodyguards were in the car with Mr. Jackson and a nice young woman walked by, he’d say something like ‘Wow, she is pretty”.

55:19 (Brad Buxer): “The type of women that he loved were South American women, with dark skin. I don’t want to get too personal, that would be weird. He likes the girls in Brazil. That was his favorite type of girl”.

However according to the time-honored tradition people like the “MJand boys” know better. They habitually  see only the boy by Michael’s side ignoring his sister even when the girl looks out of the hotel window together with  her brother and MJ:

“Jackson visited Anton in Germany for six years until 2006. FurthermoreAnton also travelled with Jackson to other countries and shared his hotel rooms. Here are some pictures of them in France (1997). They stayed friends. In 1999, 16-year-old Anton Schleiter was also seen at Jackson’s side regularly. This is a picture of them in a hotel room.

During the same year, Michael Jackson visited Disneyland in Paris. His travel companion was 16-year-old Anton Schleiter.

Michael Jackson’s detractors are either mad or half-blind – otherwise how is it possible to overlook the sister in those photos though she is always by her brother’s side and see only two people in the window when there are three people there (MJ, Anton and Franziska)?

On the other hand the freaks’ personal deformities enable them to see things in the Schleiters’ private videos which are simply not there. Here is an example.

Anton visited Neverland many times. There is a video filmed in Switzerland in 2000. From 12:40 until 14:00, Jackson is filming a young man who is holding his two kids. He goes down with his camera several times and it seems like he is checking out the guy’s butt. This guy is Anton Schleiter. He was 17 years old in that video. And as I already mentioned, Jackson is checking out his butt between 12:40 and 14:00.

Exclusive! Michael Jackson 100% New Rare private home videos with his kids #2

Okay, let’s watch the video if they insist on it. However when we look beyond the required 12:40-14:00 time frame we begin to realize that the video was recorded by Franziska and not by Michael Jackson. The distortion is not a surprise though – if she doesn’t exist for these people how could she record the video then?

Franziska and Paris in the same episode

The episode starts with Michael Jackson going out into the garden where he makes a few dance moves and Anton takes a picture of him, while Franziska is video recording both of them.

Prince starts crying and calls his father, so Michael reenters the house, and then leaves through another door to take off the coat he is wearing over his pajama.

Anton puts both children on the window-sill while Franziska continues to film them, moving her camera up and down. At some point we hear Michael’s voice asking the children to look back and upon hearing his voice they turn their faces to the camera. Then Anton carefully puts them on the floor and that is all.

Michael’s detractors must be super biased or super perverse to interpret so innocent and beautiful an episode as “MJ checking out the guy’s butt”.

Something is definitely not right with these guys and their fixed ideas about MJ…

As to their innuendoes about Anton Schleither here he is personally handling them in the AKTE documentary:

1:09:35 (Anton) “I never slept in a bed with Michael and he never even once touched me inappropriately”.

1:09:48 (voiceover) The Schleiter family from Hamburg was often invited to visit their friend Michael Jackson at the Neverland ranch, spent a lot of time there with the megastar. 

1:10:10 (Anton) “I never slept in a bed with Michael and that was never his wish or mine. This was never under consideration. We always had our own rooms.”

“It was never like Safechuck said here now, that you stayed with him and the family somewhere else. It was nothing like that. There were guest houses and there we were accommodated as a family and Michael was in his bedroom.

According to the press I’m exactly the kind of guy Michael would be after. I was a boy and spent a lot of time with Michael. But the press always presented it in a way that I spent a lot of time with Michael, even though it was us as a family”

There was never anything like this, he never even once touched me inappropriately. Nothing. He was simply like the dearest uncle one could ever imagine”

1:11:38 (Dieter Wisner, MJ’s manager) “We were at the ranch, there were different situations in the evening with several children, the nephews, people who were close to him. Then they were lying in the room with Michael on the floor. They sat on the bed and had tea with honey and so on, and read.

He did not lie in bed with them and then slept, it was just a room they felt comfortable in. There was nothing sexual, nothing like that! Complete nonsense”.

The AKTE documentary says that Anton and Franziska confirm “the closeness between the superstar and the children and that both experienced the close relationship with Michael Jackson was an exciting adventure”

27:30 (Anton) “When it came to the situation that you slept in one room, then Michael lay down on the floor, on a mattress , or on the couch.

Actually, it wasn’t even Michael who requested to stay overnight. When it happened it was us asking him because we wanted to watch movies together.”

“And you made yourselves comfortable. During the day we all threw ourselves in bed with our parents together, and we all lay there.”

The Schleiters were indeed very close to Michael Jackson but not the way those “MJandboys” mean it. The documentary says about the family:

1:22:40 (voiceover) Until Jackson’s death the Schleiters from Hamburg accompanied their friend for almost 15 years.  Jackson often brought his own children to the family. The Niendorfer Gehege (a forest park) was a place for everyone to relax. For a while Anton and Franziska have been like big siblings for Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket who have been suffering for years from the abuse accusations against their father.

1:23:17 (Anton) “It helped him a lot that he had his children. Children gave him a lot of strength. And the children loved their father more than anything. That was the greatest thing for him to have children of his own. Because he always loved children and when his dream came true to have his own children, that was the greatest thing for him. That gave him a lot of strength”.

1:23:41 (Wolfgang) “He was the best father you can imagine. No one could have known how Michael dealt with his children. He was with them day and night”.

As to Neverland, it turns out that Anton was the one who together with Michael’s nephew packed MJ’s belongings at the ranch when the trial was over as Michael refused to return there after the police desecrated his home:

1:18:00 (Anton) “After the police tore Neverland apart twice, slashing every pillow, it wasn’t his home anymore for Michael, he never wanted to go there again. Then Michael asked me and a nephew of his to pack all his things together. So I was there for a month and probably packed at least 2000 boxes. Full of all his things, from all the rooms.

We were there for a month, every day for at least ten hours and packed boxes. I found nothing reprehensible. If the FBI missed something, I would have found it, but there was nothing”.

The Schleiters also spoke about the trial:

40:00 (Wolfgang) “He knew he could always call us. He knew his phone calls were monitored, the prosecutor observed everything which is no secret any more given how communications are intercepted nowadays…. He said, ‘You don’t have to say anything, it is okay…”

40:28 (Anton) “We wrote him letters and through his managers he received them and afterwards he told us that he always was really happy when he received letters and that he always kept them with him. And that he regularly read them and I assume that it helped him too. We always said, “We believe in you” and “You can do it”, that we are behind you whatever happens, we will be there immediately and this helped him a lot.

The Schleiters visited him one last time a few weeks before his death.

42:57 (Franziska) “One of the first thoughts I had when he passed away, after the first shock, was really for me, who is saving the world now? This sounds so banal, but that symbolized Michael for me. I think a lot of people would never have thought of that at first, but as we knew him that was the Michael I knew, that he wanted good to the world and for the world”.

The makers of AKTE documentary let the Schleiter family watch “Leaving Neverland” and this was their reaction:

43:54 The Schleiters watch the documentary for the first time with us. 

Only after the new allegations of abuse in the TV documentary “Leaving Neverland” they want to express themselves and support their famous friend after his death. Because in the documentary two men report in detail how Michael Jackson allegedly sexually abused them as boys.

(Robson) He kissed me full open mouth, with his tongue in my mouth”.

Hearing what Robson claims in “Leaving Neverland” Wolfgang shakes his head and even laughs saying that he doesn’t want to watch this anymore.

(Wolgang) “I don’t wanna watch this anymore. This is utter bullshit”

(Franziska) starts crying: “Uhmm… sorry… can we stop it?”

(Wolfgang) “This is not Michael Jackson who is described in there… Never”

(Franziska) “From our perspective this isn’t possible, because we know a completely different person. And it’s so absurd to see this… I think”.

(Franziska) “This may be different for people who didn’t know him, because they don’t know how he was. They [the public] have to rely on opinions of others to get an idea of him. But for us, to see it from our perspective, this is too absurd. I cannot take it seriously”.

(Wolfgang) “It is staged like a feature film with the ‘human touch feeling’ that gets dragged into it. I think this is really shabby”.

(Anton) “It’s quite disgusting to see this. I don’t know what ….. to taint this wonderful place [Neverland]…. I think this is fiction”.

(Franziska) “I think it’s a difficult subject per se, that nobody – not us, but also nobody out there – has the right, uhm…. I mean victims don’t belong in a film, if anybody experienced such a thing, it belongs in court”.

Dieter Wiesner was similarly disgusted and was keen enough to notice that the two accusers are devoid of any emotion:

1:15:26 (Wiesner) “When I saw the first statements from the two men who were supposed to have experienced all this, I was simply shocked that someone has the cheek to go out and say something like that. Because when you look at it more closely, it is simply quite clear that it is told without any emotion. That just has not truth to it.

When you know Michael Jackson and hear the way they tell it, what happened it’s just unbearable

There is a lot more to the documentary as it also covers the various inconsistencies in “Leaving Neverland”; the love affair Robson had with Brandi Jackson (and cheated on her with Britney Spears) just at the time when he was supposed to be ‘in a relationship’ with MJ; the loving notes Michael regularly left to his nephew Taj Jackson and hundreds of his fans and not something unique for Robson and Safechuck; Dieter Wiesner telling us how Bashir staged the situation of Michael Jackson holding hands with Gavin Arvizo – he instructed them to sit down and asked Michael to put his arm around Gavin; Aphrodite Jones seeing Robson testify in support of Jackson and wondering what prevented him for telling his story when MJ was alive, and much, much more of it.

But when I asked myself what struck me most about the German documentary, the honest answer to myself even surprised me – it is the faces of all these people that make the most lasting effect of the documentary and seem to be telling the whole story.

It is the stone face of Wade Robson who is describing most disgusting things in a somewhat detached and technical manner:  “In the first week I was with him every night there was abuse”.

But there was no ‘”first week”, so consequently there was no “every night” and no “abuse”.

And then it is the smug expression on Ron Zonen’s face who says that “they had a sense of what Michael Jackson did with children when he was alone with them.”

Could someone please tell this person that “having a sense” is not enough for prosecuting someone for decades? And that he could have used his skills to catch real child predators of whom the LA area and particularly Hollywood abide. Or ask him if Corey Feldman gave the law enforcement enough “sense” of what was going on there when he spoke of his own molestation and named his abusers from Hollywood during the police interview about Jackson – to no reaction from the police?

I also recall the amazed Aphrodite Jones who had an amazed look on her face almost non-stop throughout the documentary: “And when he was acquitted I almost couldn’t believe what happened next: the whole media hype was gone in a heartbeat. At least 2000 journalists left the scene and …poof! They were gone”.

And when she researched the Arvizo case herself and realized that there was a conspiracy against Michael Jackson: “He didn’t do anything to these people. He helped them. They were liars, they were just liars. That’s when I had that moment of realizing. The jury got it right, the media was wrong”.

And her amazement at hearing Gavin Arvizo constantly change his testimony: “I was just thinking “You are lying through your teeth!”

And her account of Robson’s testimony: “I was in the courtroom when this man, this Robson, testified that Michael Jackson never did anything to him. He couldn’t wait to be called to the witness stand and testify under oath. And took the oath”.

I also remember the sad face of Thomas Mesereau when he recalled: “Sometimes Michael called me crying at night. Once he begged me not to drop the case if his enemies paid me millions of dollars. He said, ‘Tom, I know they will try it. Everyone wants to see me behind bars. I know, by enemies still try to bribe you”. So Michael did know that all of it was malicious prosecution, that he had enemies and they were ready to pay millions to get him behind bars.

I will also remember the face of Brad Buxer who nearly cried when he spoke of Michael Jackson’s children: “We’ve seen what Paris gone through because of the media. I mean we know what the children have to endure. In 2009 at the Staples Center, when Paris stood up there and told the world how much he loved her father. Jesus Christ, give them a break”.

And also the disturbed face of Taj Jackson who doesn’t worry about “Leaving Neverland” that much because he knows that it is full of lies, but is mostly annoyed that the US media does not report the multiple inconsistencies found there: “They have non-stop uncovered contradictions and inconsistencies and what annoys me most is that the American media have still not printed any of these errors.”

And also the determined face of Brandi Jackson who knows from her own intimate experience with Wade Robson that he is lying: “I just know that he is lying. There are so many lies in 4 hours, there are thousands. I could go through the whole list right now and expose every single lie. And none of these things add up.”

And the slimy face of Dan Reed who has the audacity to claim that he has “followed the rules of journalistic evidence” and that his film is about nothing else but “sexual actions that have taken place behind closed doors.”

But if it was behind closed doors and Reed didn’t see it, how can he be so sure that it is true? Even if he gives the accusers all the benefit of the doubt it will still be a fifty-fifty chance and in no way can be an affirmative statement.

No wonder his film got an award for ‘creativity’ – they couldn’t find any other nomination that could fit Dan Reed’s piece of fiction.

In fact even to the makers of AKTE documentary it is perfectly clear that Robson and Safechuck are liars, and the reason for it is very simple:

“The people who are accusing Jackson today are definitely liars. Now or before, because they tell a different story today than when Jackson was alive.”

And the documentary’s conclusion about the other side is also absolutely true and cannot be disputed:

“And the others who believe in his innocence, tell the same story all their lives.”

Actually, it is not only the same story told by the people who believe in Michael’s innocence which is so convincing, but it is also their faces which make the documentary so memorable.

When you see the Schleiter family and the way they remember Michael Jackson, it is the happiness their faces are radiating which convinces you most.

    “MJandboys” sounds like VG, isn’t? It can only be him or DD.

    About “Speechless”, i dont think Michael wrote it about a woman. It has a spiritual element to it; it’s about pure love, not about woman/man love. That was always my interpretation of this song. I think it also reflects his feelings about being a father, the unconditional love, as his mother katherine told in the AEG trial.

    “Speechless was inspired to me by, um, I spend a lot of time in the forest. I like to go into the forest and I like to climb trees. My favorite thing is to climb trees, go all the way up to the top of a tree and I look down on the branches. Whenever I do that it inspires me for music. There are these two sweet little kids, a girl and a boy, and they’re so innocent; they’re the quintessential form of innocence, and just being in their presence I felt completely speechless, ’cause I felt I was looking in the face of God whenever I saw them. They inspired me to write Speechless. -MJ (2001)”

    “I felt completely speechless, ’cause I felt I was looking in the face of God whenever I saw them. They inspired me to write Speechless” – Poly

    Poly, I absolutely don’t insist on the interpretation I presented in the post. In fact, Speechless could be (and must be) about God. Every single word of Speechless could be Michael’s prayer to God – not that passionate as before, much quieter now but expressing the same awe he always feels in His presence, the awe he cannot even put into words.

    Your love is magical, that’s how I feel
    But I have not the words here to explain
    Gone is the grace for expressions of passion
    But there are worlds and worlds of ways to explain
    To tell you how I feel

    But I am speechless, speechless
    That’s how you make me feel
    Though I’m with you I am far away
    And nothing is for real

    When I’m with you I am lost for words
    I don’t know what to say
    My head’s spinning like a carousel
    So silently I pray

    Helpless and hopeless
    That’s how I feel inside
    Nothing’s real, but all is possible
    If God is on my side

    When I’m with you I am in the light where I cannot be found
    It’s as though I am standing in the place called Hallowed Ground

    Speechless, speechless
    That’s how you make me feel
    Though I’m with you I am far away
    And nothing is for real

    I’ll go anywhere
    And do anything
    Just to touch your face
    There’s no mountain high
    I cannot climb
    I’m humbled in your grace

    Speechless, speechless
    That’s how you make me feel
    Though I’m with you I am lost for words
    And nothing is for real

    Speechless, speechless
    That’s how you make me feel
    (You’re always on my mind)
    Though I’m with you I am lost for words
    And nothing is for real
    Speechless

    Your love is magical, that’s how I feel
    But in your presence I am lost for words
    Words like—like “I love you”

    And of course it is spiritual love, not physical – whether for a woman or God. In fact, any love is spiritual because it is selfless and altruistic and it is only sex which is physical and not the same as love. But the song is certainly not about sex.

    However the context into which the ‘MJandboys’ site placed this song suggested that it was about ‘lust for a boy’ and to a certain extent it is rather unfortunate that Michael honestly said that he wrote the song after associating with two children. In the dirty minds of perverts this alone is incriminating him, while in reality the fact that Michael did not even imagine that anyone could put an equal mark between the two gives away his innocent way of thinking. So innocent that it is difficult even for us to imagine.

    P.S. I think I will amend the post now to say a couple of words about this prayer.
