"Reflections (Care Enough)" as written by Mariah Carey and Philippe Pierre....
Reflections of your love
Have come to wither

I thought I'd done my best to memorize
A picture fades of you and I together
I haven't come to terms
With how we said goodbye

Did you really care
Care at all for me
Did you really care
Did you care at all for me at all

A displaced little girl
Wept years in silence
And whispered wishes you'd materialize
She pressed on night and day

To keep on living
And tried to many ways
To keep her soul alive
Did you really care
Care enough for me
Did you really care

Did you care at all for me
If I'm not quite good enough
Or somehow undeserving of

A mother's love
You could have had the decency
To give me up
Before you gave me life
Don't you even care
Just the slightest little bit for me
Cause I really need to feel you cared

Even once upon a time for me
I need to believe, in my heart of hearts, you care for me
I need to understand
Why you left me there so helplessly

Don't you even care
Care at all for me
Reflections of your love
Have come to wither
I thought I'd done my best to memorize

    General CommentThis is a widely relative song. But mainly most of it explains Billies feelings torwards her mother in the movie Glitter. It related to me in a sence when i heard part of the first verse "I havent come to terms with how we said goodbye". And it reminded me of a recent breakup after a long term relationship. Its a beautiful song, but sorry to say Glitter ruined it for me. STILL LOVE YA MC!!!

    General CommentYes, it does talk about that relationship in the movie.
    But just like you, I always think about a dear friend of mine and how we ruined that precious relationship for me...and I often still wonder if he really ever cared at all for me... :(

    General CommentThe line I find most chilling is:
    "If I'm not quite good enough or somehow undeserving of a mothers love"
    Heartbreaking and so full of hurt.
