"If We" as written by Howie Hersh, Mariah Carey, Jeffrey B. Atkins, Damion L. Young and Nathaniel D. Hale....
[Ja Rule]
Yeah

[Mariah Carey (Ja Rule)]
I never (who would've thought baby)
Thought I'd be (missing you baby)
Without you (I need you baby)
By me (why me?)
I never (who would've thought baby)
Thought I'd be (missing you baby)
Without you (I need you baby)
By me (why me?)

[Ja Rule]
Love what your body does to me
On me, asking me, off that ecstasy
Reminiscing how we used to smoke and freak
Fuck then fall asleep, locking for a week
Now we barely even talk and walk the block
Kiss and cuddle up, girl we losing touch
What's a man to do but go crazy babe?
I know you mad but you don't really hate me babe
It's deeper than that, now

[Chorus 1]
Baby if we got together again
Sugar I'ma be your very best friend
I would love you unconditionally
You're never gonna let me go baby

Promise I will be by your side
I'll be everything you need to get by
What I broke you know we finally mend
Baby if we got together again

[Nate]
Sometimes I close my eyes and just pretend
What if I had a chance to do it all again?
Sometimes for happiness we hesitate
Just like the game, I need the love, won't wait
And if I had another best friend
What if I had someone on whom I could depend?
Someone who makes me feel like you used to
Tell me baby, what would you do?

[Chorus 1]

[Chorus 2: Mariah Carey (Ja Rule)]
Baby if we got together again (who would've thought baby)
Sugar I'ma be your very best friend (missing you baby)
I would love you unconditionally (I need you baby)
You're never gonna let me go baby (why me?)

Promise I will be by your side (who would've thought baby)
I'll be everything you need to get by (missing you baby)
What I broke you know we finally mend (I need you baby)
Baby if we got together again (why me?)

[Ja Rule]
Why would you want to go through the pain?
The loving another name
The truth is nobody can love you like I can
It's a damn shame
We can't even get along
We used to get it on, where'd it all go wrong?
I admit, the flesh is weak
But the game is strong
We go my way, your way baby, we moving on
It's true, goin' miss you
Who would've thought I'd be without you?

[Mariah Carey (Ja Rule)]
I never thought (baby there's nothing to lose)
Thought I'd be (you know my soul's so cold)
Without you (and my love is pain)
By me (spit it one more time)
I never thought (my baby)
Thought I'd be (pride and joy)
Without you (I'ma make you mine)
By me (no doubt, whoa)

[Chorus 1]

[Chorus 2: Repeats]

    General Commentthis is my favorite upbeat song on glitter(soundtrack), the voices all together are great and I love what the song means. I cant believe this song never came out... probably because the album was never appealing to anyone, not even mariah fans barely, and Mariah never showed it... I love it...

    General CommentIt is so close to me too! Well, I guess that album just got out in a wrong time (9/11) so people didn't really feel like listening to it, I think it was overrated though, since there ARE good songs in it as well.
    I think it's so much better than other R&B duets out there, this one is really meaningful and I could (and still can) relate to, how you would like to start things all over again and do it right this time!!...I keep thinking, "what if we ever got together again?"

    "...Now be barely even talk or walk the block
    Kiss and cuddle up, girl we're losing touch..

    It's a damn shame we can't get along
    We used to get it on, where did it all go wrong?
    I admit, the flesh is weak, but the game is strong
    You go my way, your way baby, we're moving on
    It's true, I'm gonn' miss you
    Who would have thought I'd be without you, uh?"

    Who would have thought, I would be without you Nico? :'(
