Languishing [The Interlude]
by Mariah Carey



If you could only see
That I was not put here
For you to judge me and
Dispute my inmost truth.

And after all these years
Of enmity, envy, and tears
It's a shame you don't know me at all

I was wondering
Would you cry for me?
If I told u that I couldn't breath,
If I was drowning; suffocating,
If I told you that I couldn't breathe.

Those ancient buried recollections,
We transform them and select them.
You have yours,
I have mine,
That's fine.

Why are we too torn to heal?
The stitches never disappear.
I have mine,
You have yours,
I am sure.

I was wondering,
Would you reach for me?
If you saw that I was languishing.

I was wondering
Would you cry for me?
If I told u that I couldn't breath,
If I was drowning; suffocating,
If I told you that I couldn't breathe.
