About We're Almost There

"We're Almost There" is a 1975 song released as a single by singer Michael Jackson, the first release from his final Motown album, Forever, Michael. As Jackson's voice matured, Motown found it difficult to find material to suit the 16-year-old Jackson, who had sung in a higher voice for most of the duration of his Motown tenure. With the return of the Holland brothers Brian and Edward, Motown had the duo write a collection of songs to fit Jackson's age. The duo composed this song and the modest hit, "Just a Little Bit of You", which became a top forty hit after this single was released. Performing more modestly, the song eventually peaked at number 54 on the pop chart while hitting number 7 on the R&B chart. These two singles would end up being the last Jackson released as an active Motown artist though the label continued to release Jackson singles until 1984. The song was later sampled on the 2010 hip-hop release "Our Dreams" on the Wu-Massacre album and on the 2009 hip-hop release "Almost There" on the Poindexter mixtape by Donald Glover.

No matter how hard
The task may seem
Don't give up our plans
Don't give up our dreams

No broken bridges
Can turn us around
'Cause what we're searchin' for
Will soon be found

[Chorus]
Cause we're almost there
Just one more step
Cause we're almost there
Just one more step
Just one more step
Don't give up
'Cause we're almost all almost there
'Cause we're almost there

Look at the lovers
Look at the lonely lovers
That didn't make it
Life's long hard climb
Life's long hard climb
They just couldn't take it
They just couldn't take it

Don't let it happen to me and you
Hold on together, darlin'
We'll make it through

Darlin', keep on reachin' out for me
Keep on reachin', do it for me
Do it for me, cause baby

[Chorus]

We're so close
I can taste it
A life so sweet
Can't afford to waste it 
Can't afford to waste it

Need to feel your hand
Slippin' from mine 
Just hold on tighter now, darlin'
Keep on tryin'

[Chorus]

Baby baby, don't give up
'Cause we're almost there) 
Keep on, keep on
We're almost there) 
Just one more step
'Cause we're almost there) 
Cause we're almost there

Just one more step
Cause we're almost there
We've come to far
To turn around

Oh! 

Keep on reachin'
For higher ground
We've had our ups and we've had our downs
Let nothin' in the world darlin'
Turn us around

Cause we're almost there
We're almost there
We're almost there

Everything we're lookin' for
We're almost there
Keep on reachin' out for me

Cause we're almost there darlin'
We're almost there
We're almost there darlin'
We're almost there
We're almost there

Ah we're almost there
