On this song, Mariah sings about how you can make it through anything if you truly believe in yourself and have faith. Never lose hope. If someone says you can't do something, don't listen and prove them wrong. Even if you mess up, try, try again because you can do anything. (thanks, Shana - Radcliff, KY)
The video was based on Carey's parents, Alfred Carey and Patricia Carey. At the beginning, a teenaged girl named Kirsten is having an argument with her mother. Jamie-Lynn DiScala of The Sopranos played the '60s teenager who runs away from home on a rainy day to be with her boyfriend. (thanks, Candice - Vancouver, Canada)
