After hearing the wonderful song and the beautiful lyrics, I would like to know what the meaning of the song is.. Does anyone know?? :D
"People often think the lyrics have some special personal significance...which often isn't true...it's important to reach people, to move them...sometimes one can do this with the mosaic of the music melody arrangement and lyrics...sometimes it is the intellectual context of the lyrics." -Michael Jackson
It doesn't have a meaning until you interpret one; it can mean whatever you want it to mean.
I'd say it's about innocence and love. He gives a few situations which seem to about a male with an innocent crush on a female and the way the two respond to each other non verbally... I guess "they" would be society questioning why, and if they ask, Tell em that it's human nature! :)
At least that's what I took from it... RIP Michael With Love,
