Mariah Carey – Long Ago lyrics

Once upon a time
You whispered softly in my ear
Loving words and fairytales
That I longed to hear
I gave you my body and soul
And you took control
As you slowly swept me up
And carried me away

You told me pretty lies
As I held onto you tight
You knew how to get your way
Ignorance was bliss in your warm embrace

Long ago
You used to want me
Now it's all so far away

But you still haunt me
And take me back to yesterday

Every now and then
I drown in thoughts of yesterday
And the fools' paradise that you blew away
I feel you beside me again
And remember when you came to my window
On a dark and stormy day

Baby, I need you now
Tonight I'm crumbling down
Sinking in the memories
Shadows of you keep washing over me

Long ago
You used to want me
Now it's all so far away
But you still haunt me
Long ago
You used to want me
Now it's all so far away
But you still haunt me
And take me back to yesterday

(So long ago)
(So long ago)
(So long ago)
(So long ago)
(So long ago)
(So long ago)
(So long ago)
(So long ago)

Baby, I need you now
'Cause tonight I'm crumbling down
Sinking in the memories
Shadows of you keep washing over me

Long ago
You used to want me
Now it's all so far away
But you still haunt me
And take me back to yesterday

Long ago
You used to want me
Now it's all so far away
But you still haunt me

Long ago
You used to want me
Now it's all so far away
But you still haunt me
