Heartbreaker

Yeah
Aight, let's go
Gimme your love--
Hey, you gotta bounce to this like this
You're almost kinda watching this
Uh-huh
Whoo oo oo
Escape

Oh you look so good
I don't wanna let go
And although I should
I can't leave you alone
'Cause your so disarming
I'm caught-up in the midst
of you and I can not resist at all

(Chorus 1):
Boy you I do
The things you want to do
The way I used to do
Could you love me baby
Holding me feelin' you
Could you go and break my heart?

(Chorus 2):
Heartbreaker you've got the best of me
but I just keep on coming 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)--8x

It's a shame to be
so euphoric and weak
when you smile at me
and you tell me the things
that you know are stated
to relinquish my love to you
but I can not resist at all

(Chorus 1)

(Chrous 2)

(JAY-Z RAP):
OK
Cool
Aight
Yo
She wanna shop wit Jay
play box wit Jay
She wanna pillowfight in the middle of the night
She wanna drive my Benz with five of her friends
She wanna creep past the block, spyin' again

She wanna roll wit Jay, chase skeeos away
She wanna fight wit lame chicks, blow my day
She wanna respect the rest, kick me to the curb
if she find one strand a hair longer than hers

She want
make love in the Jacuzzi
Rub up in the movies
Access to the old crib,
keys to da newbie

She wanna
answer the phone
tatoo her arm
last one I got her
sent it back to her mom

She call me Heartbreaker
when we apart it makes her
wanna piece of paper,
scribble down "I hate ya"

But she know she love Jay because
she love everything Jay say Jay does, and a...

(Chorus 2)

(Chorus 2)

Can't Take That Away (Mariah's Theme)

(Mariah Carey-Dianne 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
And they can try hard to make me feel
That I don't matter at all
But I refuse to falter
In what I believe
Or lose faith in my dreams

CHORUS:
'Cause 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 do
If you let them in
But they won't ever win
If you cling to your pride
And just push them aside
See
I have learned there's an inner peace I own
Something in my soul
That they cannot possess
So I won't be afraid
And darkness will fade

'Cause there's a light in me
That shines brightly
They can try
But they can't take that away from me

No
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 break me down
But I won't face the ground
I will rise steadily
Sailing out of their reach

Oh Lord
They do try hard to make me feel
That I don't matter at all
But I refuse to falter
In what I believe
Or lose faith in my dreams

CHORUS

Bliss

(Mariah Carey-James Harris III-Terry Lewis-James 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

CHORUS:
Ooh my love goes
On and on and on and on and on
My love goes
On and on and on and on and on (x2)
See all my love's for you

Baby don't you rush me, no
You got to take it slow
Just let 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
Lucious delight
When you're immersed in my ocean of love
Coming on strong
Baby I've been waiting so long
Revel inside my paradise

CHORUS

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

CHORUS

All my love's for you

How Much

(Mariah Carey-Brian Michael Cox- Jermaine Dupri - Tupac Shakur - Darryl Harper - Tyrone wrice - Ricky Rouse)

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
And basically each day
I need you more and more

Chorus:
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
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

Repeat chorus
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

Repeat chorus

After Tonight

(Mariah Carey - Diane Warren - David 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
Patiently I've waited
For this moment to arrive

Chorus 1:
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 l'll ever need
With every kiss from your sweet lips
lt's like I'm drifting out of time

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

Chorus 2:
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

Chorus 3:
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

X-Girlfriend

(Mariah Carey- Kandi - Kevin Briggs)

CHORUS:
Ex-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
Ex-girlfriend you don't listen
Stop trying
He's not gonne give in
He's not yours anymore
Don't you know
You gotta let him go
Let him go, let him go

Hey ex-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 wit him

So don't, don't keep, keep calling
Hanging up the phone
When I answer 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

REPEAT CHORUS

Hey ex-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 answer 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

REPEAT CHORUS

I understand why
You want him back
But don't you know
Our love's too strong
For you to penetrate
It's too late
He's not your baby no more

Heartbreaker
(Remix Featuring Da Brat & Missy Elliott)

(Mariah Carey - Da Brat - Missy Eiliott - Ricardo Emanuel Brown
- Snoop Doggy Dogg - Warren Griffin 111
- Andre Romeil Young - Nathaniel Hale)

DJ Clue:
Blazing hip hop and R&B
DJ Clue, dessert storm

Da Brat:
Guess who's back in the mother *** house
With 2 big tig ol' biddies for your mouth
Heartbreakers must part taker the sensation
So so def and clue hits in the making
Missy:
Guess who droppin the 5 double o
Like Yippe Yi Yippi Yo Yay
When I talk smack ya'll better skip back
Like here we go cuz the *** don't wait
Mariah:
Oh your loves so good
I don't wanna let go
No no I should I can't leave you alone
Cuz your soul is haunting me
Caught up in the midst of you
And I, can not 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 feeling me
Is what you know to break my heart
Heartbreaker you got the best of me
But I just keep on coming back incessantly
Oh why did you have to run your game on me,
I should of 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
When I met ya that night baby
I didnt 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 wasted my time telling lies
Should've known you'd break my heart
Da Brat:
Uh uh uh Well if the brat ever thinks about a heart a be gone
Should have known you were star struck when I left you so
My heart was stuck 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 thing
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
Missy:
I like the way he used to spank me
He used to lie me on my back take that UH
He used to have me in the sack 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 heartbreaking
Heartbreaker you got the best of me
But I just keep on coming back incessantly
Oh why did you have to run your game on me,
I should of known right from the start
You'd go and break my heart
Heartbreaker you got the best of me
But I just keep on coming back incessantly
Oh why did you have to run your game on me,
I should of known right from the start
You'd go and break my heart

Vulnerability (Interlude)

(Mariah Carey)

Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)

(Phil 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
How can you just walk away from me
When all I can do is watch you leave
'Cause we've shared the laughter and the pain
And even shared the tears
You're the only one

Who really knew me at all
So take a look at me now
Oh there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face
Take a look at me now
'Cause there's just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against all odds
And that's what I've got to face

I wish I could just make you turn around
Turn around and 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
'Cause there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face
Take a look at me now
'Cause there's just an empty space
But to wait for you is
All I can do

And that's what I've got to face
Take a good look at me now
'Cause l'll still be standing here
And you coming back to me is against all odds
That's the chance I've got to take
Take a look at me now

Crybaby
(Featuring Snoop Dogg)

(Mariah Carey - Howie Hersh - Snoop Doggy Dogg
- Trey Lorenz - Timothy Gatlin ~ Gene Griffin
- Aaron Hall 111 -Teddy Riley)

When I think of our untimely end
And everything we could have been
I cry, baby I cry
Ok so it's 5 am and
I still can't sleep
I 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

Chorus:
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

Sipping Bailey's Cream
Sy 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 try to forget you

Chorus
Snoop's Verse
Chorus (x3)

Did I Do That?
(Featuring Mystikal & Master P)

(Mariah Carey - Craig B. - Tracey Wapies
- Joseph SmokeY Johnson - Wardeli Joseph Quezergue)

I really hope
When you hear this song
That you're happy
With someone new
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

Chorus:
Funny how sometimes
You can really lose your mind
And 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
lt was my illusion of you
Being somehow destined for me
That had me in a daze
But we're not the same in truth

Repeat chorus
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!

Petals

(Mariah Carey - Jarnes Harris 111 - Terry Lewis - James 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

Chorus 1:
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

Chorus 2:
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...

Chorus 3:
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 found the strength to break away,
Fly...

Rainbow (Interlude)

(Mariah Carey - James Harris 111 - Terry Lewis)

I know there is a rainbow
For me to follow
To get beyond my sorrow
Thunder precedes the sunlight
So I'll be alright
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
(Featuring Joe & 98º)

(Mariah Carey- James Harris III - Terry Lewis)

I would give up everything
Before I'd separate 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 gratitude
'Cause baby I'm so thankful I found you

I would give you everything
There's nothing in this world
I wouldn't do
To insure your happiness
I cherish every part of you
'Cause without you beside me
I can't survive
Don't want to try
If your keeping me warm
Each and every night
I'll be alright
Because I need you in my life

Repeat Chorus

See I was so desolate
Before you came to me
Looking back I guess
It shows that we were destined
to shine
After 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

Repeat Chorus
