  • (Ooh, ooh, sweet love, yeah)

    I didn't mean it
    When I said I didn't love you, so
    I should have held on tight
    I never shoulda let you go
    I didn't know nothing
    I was stupid, I was foolish
    I was lying to myself
    I could not fathom that I would ever
    Be without your love
    Never imagined I'd be
    Sitting here beside myself
    'Cause I didn't know you
    'Cause I didn't know me
    But I thought I knew everything
    I never felt

    The feeling that I'm feeling
    Now that I don't hear your voice
    Or have your touch and kiss your lips
    'Cause I don't have a choice
    Oh, what I wouldn't give
    To have you lying by my side
    Right here, cause baby
    (We belong together)

    When you left I lost a part of me
    It's still so hard to believe
    Come back baby, please
    'Cause we belong together

    Who else am I gon' lean on
    When times get rough
    Who's gonna talk to me on the phone
    Till the sun comes up
    Who's gonna take your place
    There ain't nobody better
    Oh, baby baby, we belong together

    I can't sleep at night
    When you are on my mind
    Bobby Womack's on the radio
    Saying to me
    "If you think you're lonely now"
    Wait a minute
    This is too deep (too deep)
    I gotta change the station
    So I turn the dial
    Trying to catch a break
    And then I hear Babyface
    I only think of you
    And it's breaking my heart
    I'm trying to keep it together
    But I'm falling apart

    I'm feeling all out of my element
    I'm throwing things, crying
    Trying to figure out
    Where the hell I went wrong
    The pain reflected in this song
    It ain't even half of what
    I'm feeling inside
    I need you
    Need you back in my life, baby

    When you left I lost a part of me
    It's still so hard to believe
    Come back baby, please
    'Cause we belong together

    Who else am I gon' lean on
    When times get rough
    Who's gonna talk to me on the phone
    Till the sun comes up
    Who's gonna take your place
    There ain't nobody better
    Oh, baby baby, we belong together, baby

    When you left I lost a part of me
    It's still so hard to believe
    Come back baby, please
    'Cause we belong together

    Who am I gonna lean on
    When times get rough
    Who's gonna talk to me
    Till the sun comes up
    Who's gonna take your place
    There ain't nobody better
    Oh baby, baby

  • Dent from UgandaIt's an emotional song, really good
  • Emmy from Bellville, OnSaddest Mariah Carey song ever.
  • Kelsey from Sandusky, Ohmariah carey is one of my favorite singers especially the song we belong together
  • Lamarr from New Castle, PaMariah Carey is awesome,the song has so much meaning
  • Zack from New Castle, United Kingdomthis songs anthem stands the test of time. a lover who went away, arranged marriage and a runaway bride yep deffintley a classic but it does show that you should follow your heart in life in marry the person that loves you no matter what anyone says
  • Mary from New Castle, Paits a very cute songggg! girls feel like this when their bf breaks up with them!
  • Ally from New Castle, Pasike. this song is about heart break and how mariah believes that her and her ex belong together and not split apart.
  • Eric from Los Angeles, Nvyeah...sing it to me baby....got cha' back.....ain't too proud to beg,,,,
  • Courtney from Salt Lake City, UtWow...I can totally relate to this song right now. My soul mate (so I thought) is getting married in a month and when he told me the news I just cried and cried. I have been fighting to win him back for four years now (I did break his heart and that's my biggest regret in life.) Anyway, I do relate and obviously that's a main reason why I love the song. Maybe on his wedding day I should go and see if he comes "running" out in the crowd to me like Mariah did in the music video?
  • Marine from Stanton, American Samoathis song is ok
  • Michaela from Brooklyn, NyCome on guys!don't you all aree with me that her song 'Don't Forget About Us'Is better?yeah it is!
  • Elmer from Honolulu, Hithe best song of 2005....
  • Lisa from Fort Worth, Txawesome song for me in karaoke.....all mariahs songs are great
  • Katy from Portland, OrI love this song. It is a really romantic, nice song to sing to your ex. This describes me and this one boy. Sometimes I get emotional when I sing it and start to long for his company again but I know I can't have him. So songs like this and other ones by Mariah Carey, like, "can't live if living is without you" help me make it through. I also like "all I've ever wanted".
  • Brittany from Sierra Vista, Azthis song was me and my ex boy friends song
  • Spencer from West Milford, NjMariah Carey is awesome
  • Spencer from West Milford, NjShes soo plastic....but i love the song

  • Mark from Makati City, OtherThis alone will make Mariah THE artist to beat for the coveted Artist of the Decade award.
  • Reese from Calgary, CanadaI don't care how many times I hear this song, I NEVER get tired of it! It's just such a beautiful song. When I was dating my boyfriend-at-the-time, she asked me "so do you guys sing this song to eachother?" and I'm just like "Uh, NO! This a break-up song...not a 'while-were-together' song, duh!" and she just shut right up, lol
  • Sloba from Hamilton, Canadawe belong together is an amazing song!! she definetly has the biggest comeback of all time!! shes already tied Elvis Presly with 17 #1 hits and for sure will beat the Beattle with 20. once she beats them, she willl b at the top for a good 20 years. the mimi album is amazing especially we belong together and dont forget about us. i love you mariah xoxoxox
