When you love someone so deeply they become your life, it's easy to succumb to overwhelming fears inside, blindly I imagined I could keep you under glass, now I understand to hold you I must open my hands, and watch you rise.
Butterfly>, 1997. Written from the perspective of Carey’s ex-husband, Tommy Mottola.
Suffered from alienation,carried the weight on my own,had to be so strong,so I believed,and now I know I've succeeded,in finding the place I conceived.Mariah Carey
Standing alone,eager to just believe,it's good enough to be what you really are,but in your heart,uncertainty forever lies,and you'll always be,somewhere on the outside.Mariah Carey
Please be at peace father,I'm at peace with you,bitterness isn't worth clinging to,after all the anguish we've all been through.Mariah Carey
Father, thanks for reaching out and lovingly,saying that you've always been proud of me,I needed to feel that so desperately,you're always alive inside of me.Mariah Carey
See, I'm looking for a man that'll rub me slow, make me sing real high when he goes down low.Mariah Carey
For the record,"You'll Always Be a Part Of Me" no matter what you do,For the record,can't nobody say I didn't give "My All" to you,For the record,I told you "Underneath The Stars" that you "Belong" to me,For the record,It's obvious that we just "Can't Let Go" of us "Honey".Mariah Carey
This is for my peoples who just lost somebody,your best friend, your baby, your man or your lady,put your hand way up high,we will never say bye,mamas, daddies, sisters, brothers, friends and cousins,this is for my peoples who lost their grandmothers,lift your head to the sky,cause we will never say bye.Mariah Carey
They can say anything they want to sayTry to bring me downBut I won't face the groundMariah Carey
