"Whenever You Call" as written by Mariah Carey and Walter N. Afanasieff....
Love wandered inside
Stronger than you
Stronger than I
And now that it has begun
We cannot turn back
We can only turn into one

Chorus

I won't ever be too far away to feel you
And I won't hesitate at all
Whenever you call
And I'll always remeber
The part of you so tender
I'll be the one to catch you fall
Whenever you call

Verse

And I'm truly inspired
Finding my soul
There in your eyes
And you
Have opened my heart
And lifted me inside
By showing me yourself
Undisguised

Chorus

I won't ever be too far away to feel you
And I won't hesitate at all
Whenever you call
And I'll always remeber
The part of you so tender
I'll be the one to catch you fall
Whenever you call

Bridge

And I will breathe for you each day
Comfort you through all the pain
Gently kiss your fears away
You can turn to me and cry
Always understand that I
Give you all I am inside

Chorus

I won't ever be too far away to feel you
And I won't hesitate at all
Whenever you call

Chorus

I won't ever be too far away to feel you
And I won't hesitate at all
Whenever you call
And I'll always remeber
The part of you so tender
I'll be the one to catch you fall

    General Commentfor me, the song is about two people who share something way special that not everyone can have... unfortunately, they have to keep things mellow for some important reasons or they reached the point wherein they cant be together anymore. but despite the gap or the changes, one of them tells the other that he/she was thankful for him/her because he/she was able to know or find his/her true self and that he/she changed him/her into a better person. he/she reassures him/her that whatever happens, he/she would be there no matter what... =?

    General Commentthis song means so much to me. it seems like the 2 ppl in the song are having a delema cause they are to far away to be with each other. but when they ever need the other 1 2 be there, they will. i think this is suck a romantic song and it shows how much the 2 ppl in the song love each other.

    General CommentTHIS SONG IS THE BEST LOVE SONG TO ME. I like the duet version of this song is better(with Brian Mcknight). But either way this song is very beautiful lyrically, and mariah(like always) knows how to make her emotions fit her voice.

    General CommentI see this as two people in love, and one is going away, but they will always be there and love each other still even if they can't be together.
