"Twister" as written by Mariah Carey, James Samuel Iii Harris, Terry Steven Lewis and James Quenton Wright....
She was kind of fragile
And she had a lot to grapple with
But basically she kept
It all inside
Childlike and effervescent
With a well of pain
The depth of
I could not imagine
If I tried

Never thought that I
Would hear them say
Twister went and
Threw it all away

She was kind of magical
Her laughter sent you casually
Floating through a moment
Of release

Dear God
It's all so tragic
And I'll never
Have the chance
To feel the closure
That I ultimately need
No, I never dreamed
That there would
Come a time
Twister'd go and
Leave it all behind

Lord I pray
She's found some peace
And her soul's
Somewhere at ease

Yeah I'm feeling kind of fragile
And I've got a lot to handle
But I guess this is my way
Of saying goodbye

    General CommentWell, I think it might be about anything...
    I always linked this song with the feeling contained in "Petals", and perhaps this one is saying "goodbye" to all that suffering that torn her apart...Maybe she's letting all go.

    General CommentThis song was writting about Tonjua Twist
    Tonjua was Mariah's dear friend and stylist for a long time, she took her own life in the spring of 2000. She was known for her joy of life and her ability to put people at ease.She was "child like and effervescent".But behind her mask of happiness was "a well" of life-long and deep-rooted pain.

    In the song Mariah describes the hidden innner-struglge of her friend, and tries to find "closure"; her "way of saying goodbye"
