FADE IN:

INT. DARK STAGE

All is dark except for one spotlight, which we slowly tilt down on to find…

Michael, who’s still as a statue with the exception of his mouth SINGING.

Ever-so-slowly the LYRICS he SINGS starts to bring him to life, to the point of where he’s in Slo-Mo fluidity. Poetry in motion…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Our loves in motion

give me a notion ’cause

you know I’ll never part

our love goodbye

I love in season

give me a reason ’cause

you know I’ll never part

our love goodbye

And together we’ll fly

I’ll give you my heart

’cause no place too for for us

We don’t need it

AS THE BEAT COMES IN Michael becomes fully alive, moving to the MUSIC as he starts to walk the dark stage. (Spotlight always on him)

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Our loves in motion

give me a notion ’cause

you know I’ll never part

our love goodbye

I live in season

give me a reason ’cause

you know I’ll never part

our love goodbye

He stops, moving his leg to the BEAT in place.

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

And together we’ll fly

I’ll give you my heart

no place too far for us

We don’t need it 

Appearing to instantaneously teleport all over different sections of the stage, the spotlight goes dark and reappears here and there on every verse, Michael reappearing with it (dancing in place) each and every time.

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Baby don’t make me

Stay…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Baby don’t make me

fly away

gonna stay

love today

Reappear…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Baby don’t make me

baby don’t make me

Stay…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Baby don’t make me

fly away

gonna stay

love today

Michael and spotlight staying in place, he starts doing gravity-defying moves as he SINGS.

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

I love a notion

give me a motion ’cause

you know I’ll never see

a thing you see

I love the reason

give me a treason ’cause

you know I’ll never part

I love so hard

And together we’ll fly

I’ll give you my heart

(I’ll give you my heart)

No place too far for us

We don’t need it

Back to the spotlight casting down upon Michael instantaneously transporting all over different sections of the stage, this time twice on every verse.

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Baby don’t make me

baby don’t make me

Stay…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Baby don’t make me

fly away

gonna stay

and I love today

Reappear…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Baby don’t make me

baby don’t make me

Stay…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Baby don’t make me

fly away

gonna stay

Love is gonna stay

Within the spotlight Michael slow moonwalks back and side to side…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Alone at last

I give you my heart

(I give you my heart)

’cause no place too far for us

We don’t need it

Once again spotlight and Michael instantaneously teleporting all about the stage, this time on every syllable, only staying put on every fly away, gonna stay, love today… (Falling back as song ends)

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Baby don’t make me

baby don’t make me

baby don’t make me

fly away

gonna stay

love today

Baby don’t make me

baby don’t make me

baby don’t make me

fly away

gonna stay

love today (X2)
