Heartbreaker
Written by M. Carey, S. Carter, S. Elliston, L. Chase, M. Walden, J. Cohen

Gimme your love, gimme your love
Gimme your love, gimme your love

Boy your love’s so good
I don’t wanna let go
And although I should
I can’t leave you alone
Cause you’re so disarming
I’m caught up in the midst of you
And I cannot resist at all
Boy if I do
The things you wanna to
The way I used to do
Could you love me baby
You leave me feelin used
Cause you go and break my heart

Heartbreaker you’ve got the best of me
But I just keep on comin’ back incessantly
Oh why did you have to run your game on me
I should have known right from the start
You’d go and break my heart
Gimme your love, gimme your love
Gimme your love, gimme your love

It’s a shame to be
So euphoric and weak
When you smile at me
And you tell me things
That you know persuade me
To relinquish my love to you
But I cannot resist
At all
Boy if I do
The things you wanna to
The way I used to do
Would you love me baby
You leave me feelin used
Cause you go and break my heart

Heartbreaker you’ve got the best of me
But I just keep on comin’ back incessantly
Oh why did you have to run your game on me
I should have known right from the start
You’d go and break my heart

She wanna shop with Jay
Play box with Jay
She wanna pillowfight in the middle
What a night
She wanna drive my benz
With 5 of her friends
She wanna creep past the block
Spyin’ again
She wanna roll with Jay
Chase skeeos away
She wanna fight with lame chicks
Blow my day
She wanna expect the rest
Kick me to the curb
If she find one strand of hair
Longer than hers
She want love in the Jacuzzi
Rub up in the movies
Access to the old crib
Keys to the newbie
She wanna answer the phone
Tattoo her arm
That’s when I gotta send her back to
Her mom
She called me heartbreaker
When we apart it makes her
Wanna piece of paper
Scribble down I hate ya
When she know she love Jay because
She love everything Jay say, Jay does

Heartbreaker you’ve got the best of me
But I just keep on comin’ back incessantly
Oh why did you have to run your game on me
I should have known right from the start
You’d go and break my heart

Gimme your love, gimme your love
Gimme your love, gimme your love

Heartbreaker you’ve got the best of me
But I just keep on comin’ back incessantly
Oh why did you have to run your game on me
I should have known right from the start
You’d go and break my heart


Can’t Take That Away (Mariah’s Theme)
Written by M. Carey and D. Warren

They can say,
Anything they want to say,
Try to bring me down,
But I will not allow anyone to succeed hanging clouds over me,
And they can try
How to make me feel that I,
Don’t matter at all,
But I refuse to falter in what I believe or loose faith in my dreams

‘Cause there’s,
There’s a light in me,
That shines brightly,
They can try,
But they can’t take that away from me
From me

They can do
Anything they want to you,
If you let them in,
But they won’t ever win,
If you cling to you pride, and just push them aside,
See I,
I have learned,
There’s an inner peace I own,
Something in my soul that they can not possess
So I won’t be afraid and the darkness will fade

‘Cause there’s,
There’s light in me me,
That shines brightly, yes
They can try,
But they can’t take that away from me

They can’t take this
Precious love I’ll always have inside me,
Certainly the Lord will guide me where I need to go

They can say
Anything they want to say,
Try to bring me down,
But I won’t face the ground,
I will rise steadily sailing out of their reach,
Although they do try,
How to make me feel that I,
Don’t matter at all,
But I refuse to fall,
Tell me what I believe or loose faith in my dreams,
‘Cause there’s a light in me,
That shines brightly yes

They can try but they can’t take that away from me


Bliss
Written by M. Carey, J. Harris III, T. Lewis, J. Wright

Touch me baby
It feels so amazing
And you stimulate me
And you make me want you
More and more

What do I do
What do I say
Does it feel good
To you this way
I wanna be
All that you need
Boy what’s your fantasy?
Better hold on, ready or not
Baby my love ain’t gonna stop
Take it down low
Make me get high

My love goes
On and on and on and on and on
My love goes
On and on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on and on
All my love’s for you

Baby don’t you rush me, no
You got to take it slow
Juts ket the feeling grow
Until it overflows
Anyway you want it now
Just gotta tell me how
To give you everything
You’ve even dared to dream

Isn’t it bliss
To you right now
Don’t be subdued
Say it out loud
Ain’t it a sweet
Luscious delight
When you’re immersed in my
Ocean of love

Coming on strong
Baby I’ve been waiting so long
Revel inside of paradise

My love goes
On and on and on and on and on
My love goes
On and on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on and on
All my love’s for you

So
Gimme some pure delectable love
Like I’m gonna give to you
Keep coming around
‘Cause I won’t run out
I can’t get enough of you
My love goes on

My love goes
On and on and on and on and on
My love goes
On and on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on and on
All my love’s for you


How Much
Written by M. Carey, B. Michael-Cox, J. Dupri, T. Shakur, D. Harper, T. Wrice, R. House

The way I feel for you
I can’t describe
It’s almost too intense
To verbalize
Essentially you’re all
I’m living for
Basically each day
I need you more

Have you ever been so enamored baby
That’s how much I love you
All I need in this life, you see
Is me and my boyfriend (me and my girlfriend)
Have you ever felt lost
When you know you gotta leave me
That’s how much I love you

Love is yours and mine
‘Till the very end
Just me and my boyfriend

Don’t underestimate the love in me
It’s obvious these feelings run so deep
I fall and fall for you day after day
Nobody else could ever take your place

Have you ever been so enamored baby
That’s how much I love you
All I need in this life, you see
Is me and my boyfriend (me and my girlfriend)
Have you ever felt lost
When you know you gotta leave me
That’s how much I love you

Love is yours and mine
‘Till the very end
Just me and my boyfriend

You don’t gotta waste your time and worry
You don’t gotta look for reassurance
‘Cause clearly you’re the only one that’s getting this and
Sugar I don’t need nobody else
But you
And honey I ain’t letting go too soon
Because I can’t get enough
Why you asking how much?
It’s more than you can handle baby

Have you ever been so enamored baby
That’s how much I love you
All I need in this life, you see
Is me and my boyfriend (me and my girlfriend)
Have you ever felt lost
When you know you gotta leave me
That’s how much I love you

Love is yours and mine
‘Till the very end
Just me and my boyfriend


After Tonight
Written by M. Carey, D. Warren, D. Foster

I look at you looking at me
Feels like a feeling meant to be
And as your body moves with mine
It’s like I’m lifted out of time

And time again
Patientiy I’ve waited
For this moment to arrive

After tonight
Will you remember
How sweet and tenderly
You reached for me
And pulled me closer
After you go
Will you return to love me
After tonight begins to fade

I feel your touch caressing me
This feeling’s all I’ll ever need
With every kiss from your sweet lips
It’s like I’m drifting out of time

Alone will tell
If you feel the way I feel
When I look in your eyes

After tonight
Will you remember
How sweet and tenderly
You reached for me
And pulled me closer
After you go
Will you return to love me
After the night becomes the day

Time
And time and time again
So patiently I’ve waited
For this moment to arrive

After tonight
Will you remember
How sweet and tenderly
You reached for me
And pulled me closer
After you go
Baby will you return to love me
After the night becomes the day
After tonight begins
To fade

After all
After all
After all
When the morning comes
When the morning comes
After tonight
Begins to fade
Begins to fade


X-Girlfriend
Written by M. Carey, Kandi, K. Briggs

X-girlfriend you can’t have him
It’s about time
That you found you a new man
He’s moved on
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know?
You gotta let him go
Let him go
Let him go
X-girlfriend you don’t listen
(X-girlfriend)
Stop trying
He’s not gonna give in
He’s not yours anymore
Don’t you know?
You gotta let him go
Let him go
Let him go

Hey x-girlfriend
It’s too bad when you had him
Y’all thing didn’t work
But he’s all mine now
So stop pursuing him
Before you get your feelings hurt
See our love is hot
And no, it won’t stop
‘Cause I got him on lock
And although he rejects you
It don’t seem to affect you
‘Cause you just keep trying
To get with him

So don’t, don’t keep, keep calling
Hanging up the phone
When I anwser I know it
Tears you up inside and
Why do you sit in silence
On the other end
‘Till I hang up and you
Predictably call right back again

X-girlfriend you can’t have him
It’s about time
That you found you a new man
He’s moved on
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know?
You gotta let him go
Let him go
Let him go
X-girlfriend you don’t listen
(X-girlfriend)
Stop trying
He’s not gonna give in
He’s not yours anymore
Don’t you know?
You gotta let him go
Let him go
Let him go

Hey x-girlfriend
Whatever your name is
I’m really not amused
‘Cause the things you do
Are very offensive
And sometimes straight up rude
All those late night calls and notes
On his car
Won’t get you anywhere
You can call his mom
As much as you want
And he won’t really care

So don’t, don’t keep, keep calling
Hanging up the phone
When I anwser I know it
Tears you up inside and
Why do you sit in silence
On the other end
‘Till I hang up and you
Predictably call right back again

X-girlfriend you can’t have him
It’s about time
That you found you a new man
He’s moved on
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know?
You gotta let him go
Let him go
Let him go
X-girlfriend you don’t listen
Stop trying
He’s not gonna give in
He’s not yours anymore
Don’t you know?
You gotta let him go
Let him go
Let him go

I understand why
You want him back
But you don’t know
Our love’s too strong
For you to penetrate
It’s too late
He’s not your baby nomore

X girlfriend
X girlfriend
It’s tumblin’ down
X girlfriend
Don’t listen
X girlfriend
See I’m not gonna give in

X-girlfriend you can’t have him
It’s about time
That you found you a new man
He’s moved on
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know?
You gotta let him go
Let him go
Let him go
X-girlfriend you don’t listen
Stop trying
He’s not gonna give in
He’s not yours anymore
Don’t you know?
You gotta let him go
Let him go
Let him go

X-girlfriend you can’t have him
It’s about time
That you found you a new man
He’s moved on
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know?
You gotta let him go
Let him go
Let him go


Heartbreaker Remix
Written by M. Carey, Da Brat, M. Elliott, R. E. Brown, S. D. Dogg, W. Griffin III, A. R. Young, N. Hale

Guess who’s back in the motherfucking house
With two big old tities for your mouth
Heartbreakers my part taker the sensation
So So Def and Clue hits in the mane?

Guess who droppin the five double o
Like yippe yi yippi yo yay
When I talk smack ya’ll better skip back
Like here we go cuz the bitch don’t quit

Boy your love’s so good
I don’t wanna let go
And although I should
I can’t leave you alone
‘Cause your soul is haunting me
Caught up in the midst of you
And I cannot resist
At all

Boy if I do
The things you want me to
The way I used to do
Would you love me baby
Holding me fellin me
Is what you know to break my heart

Heartbreaker you’ve got the best of me
But I just keep on comin’ back incessantly
Oh why did you have to run your game on me
I should have known right from the start
You’d go and break my heart

Give me some real love,
Need someone to give me some real love,
Need someone to give me some real love,
Need someone to give me some real love.

Why
When I met ya that night baby
I didn’t know it wouldn’t last
I give my love to you honey
Wish I could take it all back

See I have never met a guy
That was better at telling lies
Should’ve known you’d break my heart

If Da Brat gave a fuck about a nigga
My heart would be broke
Should have know you were star struck when I left you so
My guard was up in the beginning but then
I gave you my heart and you broke it again
I’m a fool when you smile at me I’m convinced
I get caught up in you when I just can’t resist
I know you lie to me
It just drives me nuts
This one kiss could persuade me to believe your bluffs
You set it up impressin me with gifts and rings
I wish love was dollars cuz money ain’t a thing
Cuz when I think of MC blew the party
I got a ready to play somebody
Is that tell me you
Is that for each member of my crew
With that I’m gonna heartbreak you
Now you flat on your back
You really don’t know
So I’d advise you not to trust me yo

Baby, I’m the real thang
So what ya got me sweatin you consistantly baby
Baby, I got the good thing
So why you makin love to me you crazy baby

I like the way he used to spank me
He used to lie me on my back take that
He used to have me in the sac legs back?
But now he be buggin lately
Hey boy why you actin stinky
I keep it stiff like wood baby
So if you wanna keep a good lady
You need to stop with all the heart breaking

Heartbreaker you’ve got the best of me
But I just keep on comin’ back incessantly
Oh why did you have to run your game on me
I should have known right from the start
You’d go and break my heart


Vulnerability
Written by M. Carey

Why
Oh why
Did
Did you
I should have known
That you’d
Right from the start
That you’d
Go and break
Knowing I was
My heart
Knowing I was
So vulnerable


Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)
Written by P. Collins

How can I just let you walk away
Just let you leave without a trace
When I stand here taking every breath with you
You’re the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now
‘Cause there’s just an empty space
There’s nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face

I wish I could just make you turn around
Turn around to see me cry
There’s so much I need to say to you
So many reasons why
You’re the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now
There’s just an empty space
There’s nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face

Take a good look at me now
‘Cause I’ll be standing here
And you’re comin’ back to me
Is against all odds
It’s the chance I’ve gotta
Take a look at me now


Crybaby
Written by M. Carey, H. Hersh, S. D. Dogg, T. Lorenz, T. Gatlin, G. Griffin, A. Hall III, T. Riley

When I think of our untimely end
And everything we could have been
I cry
Baby I cry

So it’s 5 AM and
I still can’t sleep
Took some medicine
But it’s not working
Someone’s clinging to me
And it’s bittersweet
‘Cause he’s head over heels
But it ain’t that deep
I finally changed my number
Got a different pager
Then last saturday
Your cousin called to say you’re
Tryin’ to reach me
Probably because you see that
I’m with someone new

Late at night like a little child
Wandering ‘round alone
In my new friend’s home
On my tippy toes
So that he won’t know
I still cry baby
Over you and me

Sipping Bailey’s Cream
By the stereo
Trying to find relief
On the radio
I’m suppressing the tears
But they start to flow
‘Cause the next song I hear
Is a song I wrote
When we first got together
Early that september
I can’t bear to listen
So I might as well drift
In the kitchen
Pour another glass or two
And I try to forget you

Late at night like a little child
Wandering ‘round alone
In my new friend’s home
On my tippy toes
So that he won’t know
I still cry baby
Over you and me

Baby hear me when I say
Let that man be on his way
Don’t even waste your time
And worry how he handle thangz
That ain’t right
Baby hear me when I say
A playa feelin’ good today
You know you’re too fly to be cryin’
Don’t even waste your time watch how I handle things
Man you’re a fool for this
But on the real dog I’m cool with this we do and this
D-O-DOUBLE G’S-Y
Kiss the girls and make them cry

Late at night
Like a little child
Wandering around alone
In my new friend’s home
On my tippy toes
So that he won’t know
I still cry baby
Over you and me

On my tippy toes
So that he won’t know
I still cry
Over you and me

I don’t get no sleep
I’m up all week
Can’t stop thinking of you and me
And everything we used to be
It could have been so perfect see

I gotta get me some sleep
Cry
Baby and I
Cry
On my tippy toes
So that he won’t know
I still cry
You and I
Over you and me

Late at night like a little child
Wandering around alone
In my new friend’s home
On my tippy toes
So that he won’t know
I still cry

Late at night like a little child
Wandering around alone
In my new friend’s home
On my tippy toes
So that he won’t know
I still cry baby
Over you and me


Did I Do That?
Written by M. Carey, Craig B., T. Wapies, J. S. Johnson, W. J. Quezergue

I really hope
When you hear this song
That you’re happy
With somebody new
Baby because
I found a love I can call my own
And I owe it in part to you

Don’t you know that you seem
Just a little crazy
You had my trust and intimacy
But you threw it away just threw it away
And now it’s all in the past
When I think of you
I just laugh
My friends must have thought
I was high to have given so much
To someone not worth my time

Funny how sometimes
You can really lose your mind
And do things you would never do

You rhapsodize
And get caught up in the hype
‘Till your senses return to you
Love plays you for a fool

You were so insecure
And your crew was so immature
Conversations painfully weak
You were much better off
When you didn’t speak
But boy to tell you the truth
It was my illusion of you
Being somehow destined for me
That had me in a daze
But we’re not the same in truth

Funny how sometimes
You can really lose your mind
And do things you would never do

You rhapsodize
And get caught up in the hype
‘Till your senses return to you
Love plays you for a fool

I really hope when you hear this song
That you know it was meant for you
Though your attention span’s not that long
Try to do the best you can do

Funny how sometimes
You can really lose your mind
Do the things you would never do

You rhapsodize
And get caught up in the hype
‘Till your senses return to you
Love plays you for a fool

Funny how sometimes
You can really lose your mind
And do things you would never do

You rhapsodize
And get caught up in the hype
‘Till your senses return to you
Love plays you for a fool

Funny how sometimes
You can really lose your mind
And the things you would never do
I was such a fool
But I won’t be a fool no more

You rhapsodize
And get caught up in the hype
‘Till your senses return to you
Love plays you for a fool

Funny how sometimes
You can really lose your mind
And the things you would never do


Petals
Written by M. Carey, J. Harris III, T. Lewis, J. Wright

I’ve often wondered if there’s
Ever been a perfect family
I’ve always longed for undividedness
And sought stability

A flower taught me how to pray
But as I grew, that flower changed
She started failing in the wind
Like golden petals scattering

And I miss you dandelion
And even love you
And I wish there was a way
For me to trust you
But it hurts me every time
I try to touch you
But I miss you dandelion
And even love you

I gravitated towards a patriarch
So young predictably
I was resigned to spend my life
With a maze of misery

A boy and a girl befriended me
We’re bonded through despondency
I stayed so long but finally
I fled to save my sanity

And I miss you little sis and
Little brother
And I hope you realize
I’ll always love you
And although you’re struggling
You will recover
And I miss you little sis and
Little brother

So many I considered
Closest to me
Turned on a dime and sold me
Out dutifully
Although that knife was chipping
Away at me
They turned their eyes away and
Went home to sleep

And I missed a lot of life
But I’ll recover
Though I know you really like
To see me suffer
Still I wish that you and I’d
Forgive each other
‘Cause I miss you, Valentine
And really loved you

I really loved you
I tried so hard
But you drove me away
To preserve my sanity

And I’ve found the strength to break away


Rainbow
Written by M. Carey, J. Harris III, T. Lewis

I know there is a rainbow
For me to follow
To get beyond my sorrow
Thunder precedes the sunlight
So I’ll be allright
If I can find that
Rainbow’s end
I will be alright
If I can find that
Rainbow’s
End


Thank God I Found You
Written by M. Carey, J. Harris III, T. Lewis

I would give up everything
Before I’d seperate myself from you
After so much suffering
I finally found unvarnished truth
I was all by myself for the longest time
So cold inside
And the hurt from the heartache would not subside
I felt like dying
Until you saved my life

Thank God I found you
I was lost without you
My every wish and every dream
Somehow became reality
When you brought the sunlight
Completed my whole life
I’m overwhelmed with graditude
‘Cause baby I’m so thankful I found you

I will give you everything
There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do
To ensure your happiness
I’ll cherish every part of you
‘Cause without you beside me I can’t survive
Don’t wanna try
If you keeping me warm each and every night
I’ll be alright
‘Cause I need you in my life

Thank God I found you
I was lost without you
My every wish and every dream
Somehow became reality
When you brought the sunlight
Completed my whole life
I’m overwhelmed with graditude
And I’m so thankful I found you

See I was so desolate before you came to me
Looking back
I guess it shows that we were destined
To shine over the rain to appreciate
The gift of what we have
And I’d go through it all over again
To be able to feel
This way

Thank God I found you
I was lost without you
My every wish and every dream
Somehow became reality
When you brought the sunlight
Completed my whole life
I’m overwhelmed with graditude
See baby I’m so thankful I found you
Thank God I found you
I was lost without you
I’m overwhelmed with graditude
My baby I’m so thankful I found you
I’m overwhelmed with graditude
My baby I’m so thankful I found you
