Vintage-ish Mariah Carey

After a long(ish) hiatus, I came back to my blog finding it rather unhealthy that the last post lingered at the top for such a long time. As if it left some sort of sour after taste in the mouth. While I have had some blog posts roll around in my head (always in an inopportune moment when I’m not at my PC), I’m today leaving you with a kind of old school Mariah (slim too!). Its one of my favourite songs of ALLLL time, from one of my earliest, earliest singers that inspired me greatly in my formation years (read: young teen), that is, until she became alittle crazy and Christina Aguilera upped the ante. Long gone are the days when I would lock myself up in my room and belt out Christina’s songs at the top of my voice with the CD player blaring to drone it out.

Some vintage-ish Mariah Carey, taken at a time when she still took chances, still could pull a high note effortlessly when singing Live. Lyrics below.

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

No no nooo

Oh they,
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

No oh oh,
They can’t take this
Precious love I’ll always have inside me,
Certainly the Lord will guide me where I need to go

Woah, woah
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
