"Don't Forget About Us" as written by Mariah Carey, Jermaine Dupri, Bryan Michael Paul Cox and Johnta M. Austin....
(Don't forget about us) Don't baby, don't baby, don't let it go
No baby, no baby, no baby no
Don't baby, don't baby, don't let it go
My baby boy

Just let it die
With no goodbyes
Details don't matter
We both paid the price
Tears in my eyes
You know sometimes
It'd be like that baby

Now every time I see you
I pretend I'm fine
When I wanna reach out to you
But I turn and I walk and I let it ride
Baby I must confess
We were bigger than anything
Remember us at our best
And don't forget about

Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us
I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

Oh they say
That you're in a new relationship
But we both know
Nothing comes close to
What we had, it perseveres
That we both can't forget it
How good we used to get it

There's only one me and you
And how we used to shine
No matter what you go through
We are one, that's a fact
That you can't deny
So baby we just can't let
The fire pass us by
Forever we'd both regret
So don't forget about

Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us
I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

And if she's got your head all messed up now
That's the trickery
She'll wanna have like you know how this lovin' used to be
I bet she can't do like me
She'll never be M-C

Baby don't you, don't you forget about us
Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us
I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us
I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

Don't baby, don't baby, don't let it go
No baby, no baby, no baby no
Don't baby, don't baby, don't let it go

When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us.

    General Commenti love this song . . . its about a true love relationship that ended . . . and it will never be forgotten and no one can ever take their place . . . its a once-in-a-lifetime kinda thing, and even if the relationship didn't last the memory WILL last a lifetime . . . so for all you people who had one of these relationships . . . stop trying to forget about them, its not gonna happen, live with it . . . you loved them and you still do

    General CommentI love this song too... but one thing really bugs me... if the relationship was that good and 'we were bigger than anything'...why did the relationship 'die'? I wish the song explained that part!

    General Commentme and this boy were best friends for a year. he cheated on hsi girlfriend with me, and when they ended we were going go go out, but it justw asn;t right because we didn't want to lose our friendship. its a lot more complicated than that, this song just about sums up everything, from the nights when i used to talk to him for hours, and how i'll always have a place in my heart for him and how yourr first true love never dies. because somehow, what we had was more than lust, i really think it might of been love. this may sound nieve of me, but i cannot explain the situation properly because theres just too much detail!

    General CommentMariah carey is a hoe...and a diva...and a slut/bitch/ ect. yes we all no. but REGARDLESS, she really does have the most beautiful and powerful voice ever!!! I mean I'VE NEVER heard anything like it....I never even knew anyone was capable of singing the way she does. I mean seriously ladies and gents- if thats not talent...then what is?
