Lyrics

  • I Gave Her Money
  • I Gave Her Time
  • I Gave Her Everything
  • Inside One Heart Could Find
  • I Gave Her Passion
  • My Very Soul
  • I Gave Her Promises
  • And Secrets So Untold
  • And She Promised Me Forever
  • And A Day We'd Live As One
  • We Made Our Vows
  • We'd Live A Life Anew
  • And She Promised Me In Secret
  • That She'd Love Me For All Time
  • It's A Promise So Untrue
  • Tell Me What Will I Do?
  • And It Doesn't Seem To Matter
  • And It Doesn't Seem Right
  • 'Cause The Will Has Brought
  • No Fortune
  • Still I Cry Alone At Night
  • Don't You Judge Of My Composure
  • 'Cause I'm Lying To Myself
  • And The Reason Why She Left Me
  • Did She Find In Someone Else?
  • (Who Is It?)
  • It Is A Friend Of Mine
  • (Who Is It?)
  • Is It My Brother!
  • (Who Is It?)

  • I Can't Take This Stuff No More
  • I Am The Damned
  • I Am The Dead
  • I Am The Agony Inside
  • The Dying Head
  • This Is Injustice
  • Woe Unto Thee
  • I Pray This Punishment
  • Would Have Mercy On Me
  • And She Promised Me Forever
  • That We'd Live Our Life As One
  • We Made Our Vows
  • We'd Live A Love So True

Teddy Riley's Words About The Song

"This reminds me so much of Dirty Diana. I think he recaptured that sound on this song. You know, I think he went back to his roots of recording with this song to record an incredible track. I thought it would take someone like Quincy Jones [who produced Dirty Diana] to really put an incredible track like that together. I thought it would take someone like Quincy to get that sound, but Michael came up with it."

In Dangerous

This song is the 5th single and the 9th track listing in this album.[3]

Awards

This song hit no.6 on the R&B singles chart, no.14 on the the Hot 100 in the U.S., no.10 in the U.K., and no.1 in Zimbabwe.[4]

Trivia

  • The early versions were allegedly titled Lying to Myself and It Doesn't Seem To Matter, which was later mentioned in Revolution magazine, in a list of supposed songs for the Dangerous album.
  • People in the video game / Sonic community have linked Who Is It's backing music to the level music of IceCap Zone Act 1 from Sonic the Hedgehog 3, while in fact IceCap Zone Act 1's music relates more to Smooth Criminal from the 1988 album Bad.
