Honey
Written by M. Carey, S. Scombs, K. Fareed, S. Jordan, S. Hague, B. Robinson, R. Larkins, L. Price, M. McLaren

Honey you can have me
When you want me
If you simply ask me to be there
And you’re the only one who
Makes me come running
Cause what you got is far
Beyond compare

And it’s just like honey
When your love comes over me
Oh baby I’ve got a dependency
Always strung out for another
Taste of your honey

It’s like honey when it washes over me
You know sugar never ever was so sweet
And I’m dying for you cryin’ for you I adore you
One hit of your love addicted me
Now I’m strung out on you darlin’
Don’t you see every night and day
I can hardly wait for another taste of honey

Honey I can’t describe
How good it feels inside
Honey I can’t describe
How good it feels inside
I can’t be elusive
With you honey
Because it’s blatant
That I’m feeling you
And it’s too hard for me
To leave abruptly
Cause you’re the only thing
I wanna do

And it’s just like honey
When your love comes over me
Oh baby I’ve got a dependency
Always strung out for another
Taste of honey

It’s like honey when it washes over me
You know sugar never ever was so sweet
And I’m dying for you cryin’ for you I adore you
One hit of your love addicted me
Now I’m strung out on you darlin’
Don’t you see every night and day
I can hardly wait for another taste of honey


Butterfly
Written by M. Carey and W. Afanasieff

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

Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a butterfly
Fly abandonedly into the sun
If you should return to me
We truly were ment to be
So spread your wings and fly
Butterfly

I have learned that beauty
Has to flourish in the light
Wild horses run unbridled
Or their spirit dies
You have given me the courage
To be all that I can
And I truly feel your heart will
Lead you back to me when you’re
Ready to land

Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a butterfly
Fly abandonedly into the sun
If you should return to me
We truly were ment to be
So spread your wings and fly
Butterfly

I can’t pretend these tears
Aren’t over flowing steadily
I can’t prevent this hurt from
Almost overtaking me
But will stand and say goodbye
For you’ll never be mine
Until you know the way
It feels to fly

Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a butterfly
Fly abandonedly into the sun
If you should return to me
We truly were ment to be
So spread your wings and fly
My Butterfly

Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a butterfly

Fly abandonedly into the sun
If you should return to me
We truly were ment to be
So spread your wings and fly
Butterfly
So flutter through the sky
Butterfly
Fly
Spread your wings and fly
Butterfly


My All
Written by M. Carey and W. Afanasieff

I am thinking of you
In my sleepless solitude tonight
If it’s wrong to love you
Then my heart just won’t let me be right
‘Cause I’ve drowned in you
And I won’t pull through
Without you by my side

I’d give my all to have
Just one more night with you
I’d risk my life to feel
Your body next to mine
‘Cause I can’t go on
Living in the memory of our song
I’d give my all for your love tonight

Baby can you feel me
Imagining I’m looking in your eyes
I can see you clearly
Vividly emblazoned in my mind
And yet you’re so far
Like a distant star
I’m wishing on tonight

I’d give my all to have
Just one more night with you
I’d risk my life to feel
Your body next to mine
‘Cause I can’t go on
Living in the memory of our song
I’d give my all for your love tonight

I’d give my all to have
Just one more night with you
I’d risk my life to feel
Your body next to mine
‘Cause I can’t go on
Living in the memory of our song
I’d give my all for your love tonight
I’d give my all for your love
Tonight


The Roof
Written by M. Carey, J. C. Oliver, S. Barnes, C. Rooney, A. Johnson, K. Muchita

It wasn’t raining yet (yet)
But it was definitely (but it was definitely)
A little misty on that warm november night
And my heart was pounding
My inner voice resounding
Begging me to turn away
But I just had to see your face
To feel alive

And then you casually walked in the room
And I was twisted in the web
Of my desire for you
My apprehension blew away
I only wanted you
To taste my sadness
As you kissed me in the dark

Every time I feel the need
I envision you, caressing me
And go back in time
To relieve the splendor of you and I
On the rooftop that rainy night

And so we finished the Moet and
Started feeling liberated
And I surrendered as you took me in your arms
I was so caught up in the moment
I couldn’t bear to let you go yet
Threw caution to the wind
And started listening to my longing heart

And then you softly pressed your lips to mine
And feelings surfaced I’d suppressed
For such a long time
And for a while I forgot
The sorrow and the pain
And melted with you as we stood
There in the rain

Everytime I feel the need
I envision you, caressing me
And go back in time
To relieve the splendor of you and I
On the rooftop that rainy night

Last night I dreamed that I
Whispered the words I love you
And touched you so very
Subtly as we were kissing goodbye

Every time I feel the need
I envision you, caressing me
And go back in time
To relieve the splendor of you and I
On the rooftop that rainy night

Every time I feel the need
I envision you, caressing me
And go back in time

To relieve the splendor of you and I
On the rooftop that rainy night

Every time I feel the need
I envision you caressing me
And go back in time
To relieve the splendor of you and I

Every time I feel the need
I envision you, caressing me
And go back in time
To relieve the splendor of you and I
On the rooftop that rainy night


Fourth Of July
Writtne by M. Carey and W. Afanasieff

Trembling starry eyed
As you put your hand in mine…

It was twilight
On the Fourth of July
Sparkling colors were
Strewn across the sky
And we sat close enough
That we just barely touched
While roman candles
Went soaring above us and baby

Then you put your hand in mine
And we wandered away
I was trembling inside
But I wanted to stay
Pressed against you there
and leave the world behind
On that Fourth of July

So starry eyed
On the flowery hillside
Breathless and fervid
Amid the dandelions
As it swept over me
Like the wind through the trees
I felt you sigh with a
Sweet intensity and baby

Then you put your hand in mine
And we floated away
Delicately lay entwined
In an intimate daze
A crescent moon began to shine
And I wanted to stay
Tangled up with you among the fireflies
On that Fourth of July

Thunder clouds
Hung around
So threateningly
Ominously hovering
And the sky
Opened wide
Showering

Then you put your hand in mine
And we ran from the rain
Tentatively kissed goodnight
And went our separate ways
And I’ve never truly felt the way that I
Felt the Fourth of July

Truly I have never felt the same inside
Like that Fourth of July
Truly I could never feel the same as I
Felt that Fourth of July


Breakdown
Written by M. Carey, A. Henderson, C. Scruggs, Stevie J

Break, breakdown, steady breakin’ me on down
Break, breakdown, steady breakin’ me on down
Break, breakdown, steady breakin’ me on down
Break, breakdown, steady breakin’ me on down

You call yesterday to basically say
That you care for me but that you’re just not in love
Immediately I pretended to beel similarly
And led you to believe I was O.K.
To just walk away from the thing
That’s unyielding and sacred to me

Well I guess I’m trying to be nonchalant about it
And I’m going the extremes to prove I’m fine without you
But in reality I’m slowly losing my my mind
Underneath the guise of a smile gradually I’m dying inside
Friends ask me how I feel and I lie convincingly
‘Cause I don’t want to reveal that fact that I’m suffering
So I wear my disguise ‘til I go home at night
And turn down all the lights and then break down and cry

So what do you do when somebody you’re devoted to
Suddenly just stops loving you and it seems they haven’t got a clue
Of the pain that rejection is putting you through
Do you cling to your pride and sing I will survive
Do you lash out and say How dare you leave this way
Do you hold on in vain as they just slip away

Well I guess I’m trying to be nonchalant about it
And I’m going the extremes to prove I’m fine without you
But in reality I’m slowly loosing my my mind
Underneath the guise of a smile gradually I’m dying inside
Friends ask me how I feel and I lie convincingly
‘Cause I don’t want to reveal that fact that I’m suffering
So I wear my disguise ‘til I go home at night
And turn down all the lights and then break down and cry

Gonna break ya down, only if ya let it.
Everyday crazy situations rockin’ my mind tryin’ to break me down,
but I won’t let it.
Forget it, forget
I be feelin’ like you’re breakin’ me down,
kickin’ me ‘round, stressin’ me out.
I think I better go and get out and let me release some stress.
Don’t ever wanna feel no pain, pain.
Hopin’ for the sun, but it looks like
rain, rain, rain, rain.
Lord, I just wanna maintain.
Yeah, I can feel the pressures, y’all,
but nevertheless Krayzie won’t fall.
It’s over.
It’s endin’ here.

Well I guess I’m trying to be nonchalant about it
And I’m going the extremes to prove I’m fine without you
But in reality I’m slowly loosing my my mind
Underneath the guise of a smile gradually I’m dying inside
Friends ask me how I feel and I lie convincingly
‘Cause I don’t want to reveal that fact that I’m suffering
So I wear my disguise ‘till I go home at night
And turn down all the lights and then breakdown and cry


Babydoll
Written by M. Carey, M. Elliot, C. Rooney, Stevie J

It’s 2:11 and I’m stressing
Watching Tv in my hotel suite
I check my service every second
At 2:10 you still hadn’t called me
So I’m gonna leave my cell phone
Turned on in my purse by the bed
And before I fall asleep
I guess I’ll just check my machine
Again and again because I’m
Obsessing on you

I wanna be your babydoll
Wrap me up nice and tight
Love me through the night
Come lay me down
Enfold me in your arms
Cover me with velvet kisses
Rock me on and on
And whisper softly to me
You wanna be my babydoll

Zoning out thinking about
You and me between the sheets
I want to get intimate
But you’re not within my reach
So I’ll have a little more wine
And I’ll try to drink you
Out of my head
And I’ll lay awake awhile
‘Til I’m high enough I can
Forget about you until
I wake up again
Wrap me up nice and tight
Love me through the night
Come lay me down
Enfold me in your arms
Cover me with velvet kisses
Rock me on and on
And whisper softly to me
You wanna be my babydoll

Slipping into dreams
I feel my love surround you
Ny subconscious seems
To weave itself around you
Do you care for me
Beyond idolization
Tell me how you feel
But don’t keep me at bay
‘Cause I won’t be waiting long

I wanna be your babydoll
Wrap me up nice and tight
Love me through the night
Come lay me down
Enfold me in your arms
Cover me with velvet kisses
Rock me on and on
And whisper softly to me
You wanna be my babydoll

I wanna be your babydoll
Wrap me up nice and tight
Love me through the night
Come lay me down
Enfold me in your arms
Cover me with velvet kisses
Rock me on and on
And whisper softly to me
You wanna be my babydoll


Close My Eyes
Written by M. Carey and W. Afanasieff

I was wayward child
With the weight of the world
That I held deep inside
Life was a winding road
And I learned many things
Little ones shouldn’t know

But I closed my eyes
Steadied my feet on the ground
Raised my head to the sky
And though time’s rolled by
Still feel like that child
As I look at the monn
Maybe I grew up
A little too soon

Funny how one can learn
To grow numb to the madness
And block it away
I left the worst unsaid
Let it all dissipate
And I try to forget

But I closed my eyes
Steadied my feet on the ground
Raised my head to the sky
And though time’s rolled by
Still feel like that child
As I look at the monn
Maybe I grew up
A little too soon

Nearing the edge
Obvious I almost
Fell right over A part of me
Will never be quite able
To feel stable
That woman-child falling inside
Was on the verge of fading
Thankfully I
Woke up in time

Guardian angel I
Sail away on an ocean
With you by my side
Orange clouds roll by
They burn into your image
And you’re still alive

But I closed my eyes
Steadied my feet on the ground
Raise my head to the sky
And though time’s rolls by
Still feel like that child
As I look at the monn
Maybe I grew up
A little too soon


Whenever You Call
Written by M. Carey and W. Afanasieff

Love wandered inside
Stronger than you
Stronger than I
And now that it has begun
We cannot turn back
We can only turn into one

I won’t ever be too far away to feel you
And I won’t hesitate at all
Whenever you call
And I’ll always remeber
The part of you so tender
I’ll be the one to catch you fall
Whenever you call

And I’m truly inspired
Finding my soul
There in your eyes
And you
Have opened my heart
And lifted me inside
By showing me yourself
Undisguised

I won’t ever be too far away to feel you
And I won’t hesitate at all
Whenever you call
And I’ll always remember
The part of you so tender
I’ll be the one to catch your fall
Whenever you call

And I will breathe for you each day
Comfort you through all the pain
Gently kiss your fears away
You can turn to me and cry
Always understand that I
Give you all I am inside

I won’t ever be too far away to feel you
And I won’t hesitate at all
Whenever you call
And I’ll always remember
The part of you so tender
I’ll be the one to catch your fall
Whenever you call

I won’t ever be too far away to feel you
And I won’t hesitate at all
Whenever you call

I won’t ever be too far away to feel you
And I won’t hesitate at all
Whenever you call
And I’ll always remember
The part of you so tender
I’ll be the one to catch your fall


The Beautiful Ones
Written by Prince

Baby, baby, baby
What’s it gonna be?
Baby, baby, baby
Is it him or is it me?

Don’t make me waste my time
Don’t make me lose my mind baby

Baby, baby, baby
Can’t you stay with me tonight?
Oh baby, baby, baby
Don’t my kisses please you right?

You were so hard to find
The beautiful ones, they hurt you
Every time

Paint a perfect picture
Bring to life a vision in one’s mind
The beautiful ones
Always smash the picture
Always every time

If I told you baby
That I was in love with you
Oh Baby, baby, baby
If we got married
Would that be cool?
You make me so confused

The beautiful ones
You always seems to lose


Outside
Written by M. Carey and W. Afanasieff

It’s hard to explain
Inherently it’s just always been strange
Neither here or there
Always somewhat out of place everywhere
Ambiguous
Without a sense of belonging to touch
Somewhere halfway
Feeling there’s no one completely the same

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

Early on, you face
The realization you don’t
Have a space
Where you fit in
And recognize you
Were born to exist

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

And it’s hard
And it’s hard
And it’s hard

Irreversibly
Falling in between
And it’s hard
And it’s hard
To be understood
As you are
As you are
Oh, and God knows
That you’re standing on your own
Blind and unguided
Into a world divided
You’re thrown
Where you’re never quite the same
Although you try-try and try
To tell yourself
You really are
But in your heart-uncertainty forever lies
And you’ll always be
Somewhere on the outside
