Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for the world that I come from
'Cause I've been looking around
In the lost and found of my heart...
No one understands me
They view it as such strange eccentricities...
'Cause I keep kidding around
Like a child, but pardon me...

People say I'm not okay
'Cause I love such elementary things...
It's been my fate to compensate,
For the Childhood
I've never known...

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like pirates in adventurous dreams,
Of conquest and kings on the throne...

Before you judge me, try hard to love me,
Look within your heart then ask,
Have you seen my Childhood?

People say I'm strange that way
'Cause I love such elementary things,
It's been my fate to compensate,
For the Childhood I've never known...

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like fantastical stories to share
The dreams I would dare, watch me fly...

Before you judge me, try hard to love me.
The painful youth I've had

Have you seen my Childhood...

    my meaning to this song is michael is trying to tell everyonce have you seen his childhood...and how michael wanted his child hood to be like regular kids...like how kids be always dance in the car,having parties,going to disney world,prank calling,hangging out with their friends,sneaking out the house to go see movies then get in trouble for it or not, to me thats what most of his videos was about,my fav is BAD,because the whole video is what regular teens do,if the parents are not home they just sit with thier friends and hang ou on the pourch or somthing,its also my fav because mainly what Michael was doing Chris Tucker was also doing the things michael did in the movie Rush Hour Or Ruch Hour 2.
    I Love You Michael
    &
    I Miss You Michael
    You going to be forever in my heart,Dont matter what happens.

    If I see in Michael Jackson's eyes, I see a broken childhood. I see grief and fear. But if I see Prince, Paris and Blanket in the eyes of Michael Jackson's children, I see love and a nice childhood. He never gives Michael to his children the childhood had. He loves his children, but he was never loved by his own father. This is so sad. He wants to make in his child education nothing wrong. His children have on the contrary to him a great childhood thanks to her wonderful father Michael who will also pay attention in heaven to them. His children love him really very much. Michael, we hope you never have the peace you had. Become happy with the angels. We love you so much.

    that´s is right,please don´t read the other text of me,this is wrong.
    I can´t good english,i come from germany

    When i look in Michael´s eyes,i can see a broken childhood.
    But,when i look in the eyes of Michaels Childrens
    Prince Michael Jr.,Paris Katherine and Prince Michael II.(Blanket) can i see a wunderful childhood.Joseph Jackson is so a dangerous father for Michael and Michael is a good father to his childrens.
    thats so wunderful and this song is really sweet and wunderful and it is ever in my heart this song.
    Michael i love you and your beautyful childrens.

    :-)

    Rest in Peace Michael
