Featuring Nate Dogg and Ja Rule


Mariah (Ja Rule)

I never thought (Who would have thought baby)
That I'd be (missin' you baby)
Without you (I need you baby)
Why me? (why me?)

I never thought (Who would have thought baby)
That I'd be (missin' you baby)
Without you (I need you baby)
Why me? (why me?)


Ja Rule

Love when ya body next to me,
On me actually, puff that extacy.
Reminiscing how we used to smoke and freak,
Fuck and fall asleep, knockin for a week.
Now we barely even talk and walk the block,
Kiss and cuddle up, girl we losing touch.
What's a man to do but go crazy babe?
I know you mad but you don't really hate me babe?
It's deeper than that.


Mariah

If we got together again,
Sugar I would be your very best friend.
I would love you unconditionally,
You'd never wanna let me go baby.
Promise I would be by your side,
Be everything you need to get by.
My broken heart would finally mend,
Darlin' if we were together again.


Nate Dogg

Sometimes I close my eyes and just pretend,
What if I had the chance to do it all again.
Sometimes for happiness we hesitate,
Just like the game I hear that love won't wait.
But if I had another best friend,
Well if I had someone on who i could depend,
Someone who makes me feel like you used to.
Tell me baby what would you do?


Mariah

If we got together again,
Sugar I would be your very best friend.
I would love you unconditionally,
You'd never wanna let me go baby.
Promise I would be by your side,
Be everything you need to get by.
My broken heart would finally mend,
Darlin' if we were together again.


Mariah (Ja Rule)

If we got together again, (Who would have thought baby)
Sugar I would be your very best friend. (missin' you baby)
I would love you unconditionally, (I need you baby)
You'd never wanna let me go baby. (why me?)
Promise I would be by your side, (Who would have thought baby)
Be everything you need to get by. (missin' you baby)
My broken heart would finally mend, (I need you baby)
Darlin' if we were together again. (why me?)


Ja Rule

Why would you wanna go through the pain of lovin' another man?
Truth is nobody can love you like I can.
It's a damn shame we can't get along,
We used to get it on, where'd it all go wrong?
I admit the flesh is weak but the game is strong,
We go my way, your way, baby we moving on.
It's true I'm gonna miss you,
Who woulda thought that I'd be without you?


Mariah (Ja Rule)

I never thought (Baby there's nothing to lose)
That I'd be (you know my soul's so cold)
Without you (and my love is pain)
Why me? (baby one more time)

I never thought (My baby)
That I'd be (pride and joy)
Without you (Imma make you mine)
Why me? (without Rule)


Mariah

If we got together again,
Sugar I would be your very best friend.
I would love you unconditionally,
You'd never wanna let me go baby.
Promise I would be by your side,
Be everything you need to get by.
My broken heart would finally mend,
Darlin' if we were together again.

Darlin' if we were together again. (why me?)
