"Always Be My Baby" as written by Mariah Carey, James Samuel Iii Harris, Terry Steven Lewis, Jermaine Dupri and Manuel Lonnie Seal....
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
So I'm letting you fly
'Cause I know in my heart babe
Our love will never die

You'll always be a part of me
I'm part of you indefinitely
Boy 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 boy
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
Boy 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 boy
When your days and your nights get a little bit colder
I know that you'll be right back baby
Oh baby believe me it's only a matter of time, time

You'll always be a part of me
I'm part of you indefinitely
Boy 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

You'll always be a part of me
I'm part of you indefinitely
Boy 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

    General CommentFirstly,
    MY GOD butterflyprince$$, learn to type!!!!

    Anyhoo, this is my favourite song of all time. I love Mariah, and I first listened to this song whilst listening to her Greatest Hits on holiday with my friends and my school to the south of France for like, two weeks. I fell in love with it. I listened to it non-stop and every night before I went to sleep. Its so beautiful and catchy and carries a lot of memories.

    General CommentIts a really pretty song! Her voice is amazing in it, as her early stuff is definitely her best, and this song is a classic! Its about being in love with someone and your love being so deep, that you feel, a part of both of yourselves will always be together.

    General Commentwell actually I totally know what she sings about i this brilliant song... the guy loves her, but he can't really cope with it and says he wants his freedom, and she just lets him go cuz she KNOWS he'll always come back... she doesn't worry cuz they belong together.

    General Commenti was about 7 when i heard it for the first time and as soon as i heard it i started running around the house jumping on my bed singing it... ( i was a funny child )
    Last year I won a talent show for singing this song along with My All... both of them are what makes Mariah so famous.

    General CommentThis song sounds a little stalker-ish. She's all like "Boy, don't you know you can't escape me" "No way you're never gonna shake me" It's very Enrique Iglesias... "You can run you can hide, but you can't escape my love." Very scary actually. Mariah.. find a guy that loves you back!
