Didn’t we, didn’t we, almost have it all?

 

So, if you want it, give it up, I won’t stand in your way

Take this heavy heart, I won’t beg you to stay

This time for sure, it’s gonna be the last one together

Listen all those nights, with dreams too young to die

 

Wake up, there’s no words gonna make you stay

Break up, but the heart never fades away

Bittersweet, but lately I’ve been thinking

Time can’t erase the pain

 

You’ll always be my baby, like Mariah said

(Young Mariah said, young Mariah said)

Do you remember fantasy? We were alright

Didn’t we, didn’t we, almost have it all?

Didn’t we, didn’t we?

 

Every time I hear your name, takes me back to the night

But that was long ago, now I’m losing this fight

Down this endless road

Hope someday it’ll feel alright, but it don’t feel that way tonight

 

You’ll always be my baby, like Mariah said

(Young Mariah said, young Mariah said)

Do you remember fantasy? We were alright

Didn’t we, come on back to me

 

Remember the nights we used to crush?

I wish I didn’t miss them so damn much

Just open the door, I’ve had enough

Since you been gone, emotions gotten tough

 

Oh, I’m hearing what you’re saying, but this love has been restraining

Wake me up, wake me up

Is this real love?

Wake me up, wake me up

Now I know, now I know

Boy it takes time

 

Like Mariah said, kinda boy I’ve been dreaming of

Do you remember fantasy? We were alright

Didn’t we, didn’t we, almost have it all?

Young Mariah said

A perfect love

 

Didn’t we, didn’t we, almost have it all?

I wanna dance with somebody that feels love

Didn’t we, didn’t we, almost have it all?
