We were as one, babe
For a moment in time
And it seemed everlasting
That you would always be mine
Now you wanna be free, yeah
So I'm letting you fly
'Cause I know in my heart, babe
Our love will never die, no...

You'll always be a part of me
I'm part of you, indefinitely
Girl, don't you know you can't escape me
Ooh darling, 'cause you'll always be my baby
And we'll linger on
Time can't erase a feeling this strong
No way, you're never gonna shake me
Ooh darling, 'cause you'll always be my baby

I ain't gonna cry, no
And I won't beg you to stay
If you're determined to leave, girl
I will not stand in your way
But inevitably, you'll be back again
'Cause you know in your heart, babe
Our love will never end, no

You'll always be a part of me
I'm part of you, indefinitely
Girl, don't you know you can't escape me
Ooh darling, 'cause you'll always be my baby
And we'll linger on
Time can't erase a feeling this strong
No way, you're never gonna shake me
Ooh darling, 'cause you'll always be my baby

I know that you'll be back, girl
When your days and your nights get a little bit colder
I know that you'll be right back
Ooh baby, believe me it's only a matter of time!

You'll always be a part of me
I'm part of you, indefinitely
Girl, don't you know you can't escape me
Ooh darling, 'cause you'll always be my baby
And we'll linger on
Time can't erase a feeling this strong
No way, you're never gonna shake me
Ooh darling, 'cause you'll always be my, my baby

You'll always be a part of me
[You will always be]
I'm part of you, indefinitely
Girl, don't you know you can't escape me
Ooh darling, 'cause you'll always be my baby
And we'll linger on
[We will linger on]
Time can't erase a feeling this strong
No way, you're never gonna shake me
Ooh darling, 'cause you'll always be my baby

Always be my baby

    General CommentI'm by no means a Mariah Carey fan, but Cook's version of this song has me hooked. His voice is emotionally infectious on it.

    And the meaning of the song is pretty self-explainatory.

    General CommentGAH! I love this version. And yes, yes. I'm glad he won American Idol, too ^w^.
    But David A. put up a good performance too, and so did everyone else. *ahem* Well, this song IS actually self-explanatory ^w^ ''

    General CommentHoly crap!! Before he did a cover of this song, I just thought it was a meaningless pop song that was fun to sing. Somehow, he managed to give the song more depth and meaning. When he sang it live, he had me in tears by the end of it. It was so beautiful, and you could tell he was putting his entire heart on the stage. David Cook is the greatest Idol contestant ever, and my absolute favorite!!!
