  • Treated me kind
    Sweet destiny
    Carried me through desperation
    To the one that was waiting for me
    It took so long
    Still I believed
    Somehow the one that I needed
    Would find me eventually

    I had a vision of love
    And it was all that you've given to me

    Prayed through the nights
    Felt so alone
    Suffered through alienation
    Carried the weight on my own
    Had to be strong
    So I believed
    And now I know I've succeeded
    In finding the place I conceived

    I had a vision of love
    And it was all that you've given to me
    I had a vision of love
    And it was all that you've given me

    I've realized a dream
    And I visualized
    The love that came to be
    Feel so alive
    I'm so thankful that I've received
    The answer that heaven has sent down to me

    You treated me kind
    Sweet destiny
    And I'll be eternally grateful
    Holding you so close to me
    Prayed through the nights
    So faithfully
    Knowing the one that I needed
    Would find me eventually

    I had a vision of love
    And it was all that you've given to me
    I had a vision of love
    And it was all that you turned out to be

  • Camille from Toronto, OhMichaela, I agree!
  • Michaela from Brooklyn, NyThis song should be played on the air more.
  • Camille from Toronto, OhWhat a memorable first single for an artist! This, along with Mariah's "Dreamlover" stand out as my two favorite Mariah Carey songs.
  • Allox from Qld, AustraliaYeah, dis is one of my favourites of hers, along with 'Shake It Off'
  • Paul from Detroit, Mi15 years later, Mariah is still cranking out hits. She's currently at #1 on Billboard with her latest (and 17th number 1) Don't Forget About Us.
  • Ben from Dallas, TxI love this song so much!! She has had numerous hits and albums over the past 15 years, but I think this is still one of my faves. It has a retro 50s shuffle sounding rhythym that is so cool and her vocals are impeccable.
