Keep The Faith

: Dangerous
January 1, 1991
If You Call Out Loud
Will It Get Inside
Through The Heart Of Your Surrender
To Your Alibis
And You Can Say The Words
Like You Understand
But The Power's In Believing
So Give Yourself A Chance
'Cause You Can
Climb The Highest Mountain
Swim The Deepest Sea, Hee
All You Need Is The Will To Want It
And Uhh, Little Self-Esteem

So Keep The Faith
Don't Let Nobody Turn You 'Round
You Gotta Know When It's Good To Go
To Get Your Dreams Up Off The Ground
Keep The Faith, Baby, Yea
Because It's Just
A Matter Of Time
Before Your Confidence Will Win Out
Believe In Yourself
No Matter What It's Gon' Take
You Can Be A Winner
But You Got To Keep The Faith
...Gon' Keep It Brother
You Got It

And When You Think Of Trust
Does It Lead You Home
To A Place That You Only Dream Of
When You're All Alone
And You Can Go By Feel
'Stead Of Circumstance
But The Power's In Believing
So Give Yourself A Chance
I Know That You Can Sail Across The Water
Float Across The Sky, High
Any Road That You Take
Will Get You There
If You Only Try

So Keep The Faith, Ow
Don't Let Nobody Take You Down, Brother
Just Keep Your Eyes On The Prize
And Your Feet Flat On The Ground

Keep The Faith, Baby, Yea
Because It's Just A Matter Of Time
Before Your Confidence Will Win Out
I Told My Brother How To Do The Thing Right
Lift Up Your Head And Show The World You Got Pride
Go For What You Want
Don't Let 'Em Get In Your Way
You Can Be A Winner
But You Got To Keep The Faith
Gon' Keep It Brother
You Got It

I Know That Keepin' The Faith
Means Never Givin' Up On Love
But The Power That Love Has To Make It Right
Makes It Makes It Right
Keep The Faith
Don't Let Nobody Turn You 'Round Brother
You Got To Know When It's Good To Go
To Get Your Dreams Up Off The Ground

Keep The Faith Baby, Yea
Because It's Just A Matter Of Time
Before Your Confidence Will Win Out
Better Stand Up And Act Like You Wanna Do Right
Don't Play The Fool For The Rest Of Your Life
Work On It Brother And You'll Make It Someday
Go For What You Want
And Don't Forget The Faith
Look At Yourself
And What You Doin' Right Now
Stand Back A Minute
Just To Check Yourself Out
Straighten Out Your Life
And How You're Livin' Each Day
Get Yourself Together
'Cause You Got To Keep The Faith

Uh, Uh, Uh
Don't Let Nobody Take You Down, Brother
Just Keep Your Eyes On The Prize
And Your Feet Flat On The Ground
Keep The Faith, Baby, Yea
Because It's Just A Matter Of Time
Before Your Confidence Will Win Out
Lift Up Your Mind
Before Your Mind Gets Blown
Some Things In Life
You Best Just Leave Them Alone
Go For What You Want

Don't Let It Get In Your Way
You Can Make It Happen

But Ya Got Ta Keep The Faith
Gon' Keep It Brother
You Got To Keep The Faith
Yeah Keep The Faith
Gon' Keep It Sister
You Got To Keep The Faith
Now, Now
I'll Show My Brotha
How To Do The Thing Right
Lift Up Your Head
And Show The World You Got Pride
Go For What You Want
Don't Let 'Em Get In Your Way
You Can Be A Winner
If You Keep The Faith
Straighten Out Yourself
And Get Your Mind On Track
Dust Off Your Butt
And Get Your Self-Respect Back
You've Known Me Long Enough
To Know That I Don't Play
Take It Like You Want It
But You Got To Keep The Faith Gon'

Don't Let Nobody Take You Down
Just Keep Your Eyes On The Prize
And Get Your Feet Back On The Ground
Keep The Faith, Baby, Yea
Because It's Just A Matter Of Time
Before Your Confidence Will Win Out
But Till That Day I Said You've Got To Keep The Faith!

One of my fave songs by Michael. I love him so much and this song is so beautiful. It makes me cry sometimes but it always helps me

Oh my I loooooooooooove this song.

Such an inspiration and motivation for me <3

This is one of my favorite MJ songs. It's a beautiful song, both powerful and inspiring. I'm not a religious person, but I am spiritual enough to believe in a higher power. And when I'm feeling low or needing a boost, this song gives it to me. And it reminds me of the magic of MJ's voice and energy, because even though he is no longer with us, he can still reach us and touch us with his music.

I have always loved this song and Michael did not give this song much recognition, but he knew it was beautiful for himself and everyone else. One thing Michael did know and understand is that his songs spoke to himself just as it did to the world. Sometimes we also have to do self-therapy and although Michael did not put that song out there for the world to hear unless you bought the CD he meant for the message to get across just as his other songs did. I give Michael more than 5 stars on this song and CD. Michael was a beautiful soul and all he wanted was the world to love him and one another just as he did. May he forever rest in peace.

Why don't we hear this song at all? Good Lord, it's got everything - an almost fiercely positive message of faith in oneself, couched in a funky gospel rock groove that launches your soul into orbit. I sure wish we had a video of this performed live.

Michael sounds gorgeous, able to channel supportive nurturing and animal passion at will to get through. He is truly our century's Mozart - what a staggering loss. Thank God he lived in a time of recordings and video, so that we who are left behind can yet try to grasp the depth and breadth of his work.

This is perhaps one of my favorite Michael songs - I love the power, the meaning, everything about the song. For some reason over the years every time I've been nervous about something, this would be the song that pops into my head, and it's always the one that brings me peace.

Because of all the James Brown influence in this song, it always reminds me of "old times". After the legend Michael became, it's hard for a person to even think he himself was influenced by others and this song is a perfect example of that.

We love you Michael

the keep the faith track has never been given much attention by michael jackson himself but what the king of pop doesn't know is that the Keep the faith track has beautiful and well composed lyrics and tells people the true message of live and also tells people what to do when they are feeling sad or having a bad day! Keep The Faith...

This guy as super-human, he can't possibly be labelled as a standard human being living his life after all he has done for the world and people! he's like a spy angel working for some universal force who's been sent down to earth for a special reason, i mean "Keep The Faith" who writes songs today about making people believe in themselves? not 50 cent, not fall out boy, He's one in a zillion!
