"The Distance" as written by and Tyrone William Griffin Jr. Mariah Carey....
S-P-I-R-I-T, it's great to see
We got it, the spirit
Hey, hey, let's hear it

Ain't nobody stopping us
What we have is dangerous
Left they opinions in the dust
Said can't nobody fuck with us
They'll never find a way to make us fade away
Our love won't fade away (no)
They'll never find a way to make us fade away
Our love won't fade away

Warm days, cold nights
Late October
Separated, people saying what we have is over
But the hate only made us get closer (close)
And closer (yah, yah, yah)

Said we couldn't go the distance, yeah
Look at us, we're going the distance
They just wanna be us
They don't wanna see us
Going the distance (yeah)
For life, for life, la di da
Said we couldn't go the distance
For life, for life, la di da
Look at us, we're going the distance
The distance, oh

It was no good
Having hands up
Tried to diminish me
Always stayed out
Camping out crowds
In spite of them difficulties
But they can't, but they can't, but they can't
Take away them precious memories (yeah)
And I won't, and I won't, and I won't
Let 'em come between you and me (woo)

Warm days, cold nights
Late October
Separated, people saying what we have was over
But the hate, only made
Us get closer, (close)
Closer

Said we couldn't go the distance
Look at us, we're going the distance (hey)
They just wanna be us
They don't wanna see us
Going the distance (yeah)
For life, for life, la di da
Said we couldn't go the distance
For life, for life, la di da
Look at us, we're going the distance

We've been goin' all the way (ay)
For the longest (ooh yeah)
We're too strong (too strong)
We're too silent (ooh yeah)
They can't stop it now
We in Prada now (ooh)
Fuck all their comments (their comments)
They be so toxic (they be so toxic)
We be kissing in public
You like it, I love it
You with it, I'm with it
We going the distance

Look at us we're going the distance (hey)
They just wanna be us
They don't wanna see us
Going the distance (yeah)
For life, for life, la di da
They said we couldn't go the distance
For life, for life, la di da (ooh yeah)
Look at us, we're going the distance

S-P-I-R-I-T, it's great to see
We got it, the spirit
Aye, aye, let's hear it
