Hi! My name is Pia, I'm from Sweden and just registred in this forum, please excuse me for my English!
I'm very glad to have found this forum, it seems to be very interesting and full of nice people!
I've been thinking all day about the lyrics in "Speechless" - I don't know if it's already been discussed in this forum? The reason to wondering about the lyrics, is that I suddenly recalled an intervju with Michael, were the subject was the Invincible-album. Michael was asked which was his 3 favorite songs in this album, and he said "Unbreakable", "Speechless" and another song, which title unfortunatly has slipped my memory - but it was not "You are my life", which I would have expected, because it was written for his children.
Why did he mention these songs, you think? "Unbreakable" is pretty obvious to me, but why did he mention "Speechless? Ok, it's a nice song, but could it be because it has message for us? Could even the title "Speechless" be a clue for us to follow, directing us to look for signs and messages?
Some of the lyrics:
"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 is spinning like a carousel, so silently I pray"
"Helpless and hopeless, that's how I feel inside
Nothings'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 Hallow Ground"
What do you think... could there be some clues here? In my mind it sure could be! My English isn't good enough to figure out what "Hallow Ground" is, could someone explain this to me? And please excuse me if this subject already has been discussed!
