Everything I could ever want in a song! 8-)
What a description! I totally agree, though. 8-)

I can't sleep at night
When you are on my mind
Bobby Womack's on the radio
Saying to me
"If you think you're lonely now"
Wait a minute
This is too deep (too deep)
I gotta change the station


Dat iconic diversion. :cry:

I was stanning so hard.
Yes, but it had to grow on me. At first listen I only really liked Fly Like A Bird.
As I ordered the Japanese version with the bonus tracks, a friend gave me a copy and added With You I'm Born Again. I have to admit I loved that non-album track more than any of the other songs...

But of course the album grew on me and I had favorites like Mine Again, Circles, Stay The Night, Your Girl and Get Your Number. It took me a little longer to love We Belong Together. It is my favorite song of the album now though.

Classic af.
The first time I heard that long, sustained C5 at the end I was floored for days.

The pain reflected in this song ain't even half of what I'm feeling inside>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I still breakdown anytime I hear that last chorus. :cry: It's almost as if she were singing for her career with nothing else left to lose. :cry:

This is her most overrated song ever. And one of my least favorite Mariah songs.

But i do think it's overrated. You may find another Mariah song that i like overrated. That's the beauty of music and forums.

I think Beautiful has the same timeless classic feel as this song... few tweaks and I think it could have been an if hit as well

Page 1 Lyrics :lol:

Dazzle wrote:This will be the next single from 'The emancipation of Mimi'. Mariah has already filmed the video!
She describes it as a mix between 'The roof' and 'One sweet day'.

Here are the lyrics:

[Mariah]
Floatin' away like a feather

[JD]
Baby you know...

[Mariah]
You know that we belong together... baby...

I'm so comforted
Even though you're gone
For all I know
You may be hearin' this song
The love we shared
Those sacred nights
Sketched forever in my mind
My best friend
Sweet confindant
Baby you know that I know
That we showed, that we've grown
It's alright

So you've floated away
Like a feather
Baby you knew
We belonged together
Sweet kisses goodbye
Forget you? I'd never
'Cause baby I knew we belonged together

[JD]
And it hurts

[Mariah]
Deep inside...

[JD]
But true love

[Mariah]
Never dies... it never dies...

Baby I catch myself
Looking straight to the sky
With the warmth of the sun
Reminding me you're alright
(You're alright... you're alright)
And in the cool of the night
You're wrapped in blankets of stars
Sweetly I find myself wishing
I could be where you are
But I know in my time
I'll be where angels trod
For now, with closed eyes
Baby, I will thank God
(That I had you this long)

So you've floated away
Like a feather
Baby you knew
We belonged together
Sweet kisses goodbye
Forget you? I'd never
'Cause baby I knew we belonged together

[Mariah Speaking]
This song goes out to Aaliyah... Left Eye... Ray... and ODB... We love you... One day we'll all be together... One day we'll all be together...

[Mariah with Choir]
We belong... we belong together!
We belong... we belong together...
I said... we belong... we belong together!
We belong... we belong together
Forever, together forever
No matter what weather
We'll be together always!

So you've floated away
Like a feather
Baby you knew
We belonged together
Sweet kisses goodbye
Forget you? I'd never
'Cause baby I knew we belonged together
I can't wait to hear it! :o

This is genius in every possible way: lyrically, vocally and production-wise.
The raw emotion and vocal breaks while singing this... Man...
She brought her A game.
