"For The Record" as written by Mariah Carey, Bryan Michael Paul Cox and Adonis Shropshire....
For the record
You oughta know
You wasn't thinking
When you let me go

But whatever
That's how it goes
Win some you lose some
And others you hold in your heart

Why it gets so hard
Tears you all apart
Even though you try to let go
No, no, no

Suddenly you're here
And it's so surreal
And I don't know
What the deal

'Cause when I'm looking in your eyes
Feels like the first time
Give me one good reason why
We can't just press rewind

I don't wanna spend my life
Thinking what it could've been like
If we had another try (one time)
Like back in the day
That look on your face
Feels like, the first time

Them other irregularities
They can't compete with MC
The whole entire world can tell
That you love yourself some me

People see ya know
Asking all about
Me and how they always thought we
Were so perfect together

Let's re-write the end
Start over again
And it's gon go better now

'Cause when I'm looking in your eyes
Feels like the first time
Give me one good reason why
We can't just press rewind

I don't wanna spend my life
Thinking what it could've been like
If we had another try (one time)
Like back in the day
That look on your face
Feels like, the first time

For the record
You'll always be a part of me
No matter what you do
And for the record
Can't nobody say
I didn't give my all to you

And for the record
I told you underneath the stars
That you belong to me
For the record
It's obvious that
We just can't let go of us, honey

'Cause when I'm looking in your eyes
Feels like the first time
Give me one good reason why
We can't just press rewind

I don't wanna spend my life
Thinking what it could've been like
If we had another try (one time)
Like back in the day
That look on your face
Feels like, the first time

'Cause when I'm looking in your eyes
Feels like the first time
Give me one good reason why
We can't just press rewind

I don't wanna spend my life
Thinking what it could've been like
If we had another try (one time)
Like back in the day
That look on your face
Feels like the first time

For the record, baby
Now you know, baby

    General CommentThe theme to Mariah's perfume. Which will be outdated when the perfume stops selling or is discontinued.
    For the Record is pure novelty like the Spice Girls' Move Over from the Pepsi campaigne in 1997.

    General Comment^maybe true, but i think the song fits in pretty seamlessly with the album musically and content wise (the lyrics seem to reflect the same relationship she is talking about in a few other songs).

    i wasn't aware of the ad campaign until i saw the above comment.
