(Mariah)
I would give up everything
Before I'd separate myself from you
After so much suffering
I've finally found unvarnished truth
I was all by myself for the longest time
So cold inside
And the hurt from the heart it would not subside
I felt like dying
Until you saved my life

(Chorus - all)
Thank God I found you
I'm lost lost without you
My every wish and every dream
Somehow became reality
When you brought the sunlight
Completed my whole life
I'm overwhelmed with gratitude
Cause baby I'm so thankful i found you.


(Joe)
I would give you everything
There's nothing in this world I wouldn't do
To ensure your happiness
I'll cherish every part of you
Because without you beside me I can't survive
Don't wanna try
If you're keeping me warm each and every night
I'll be all right
Cause I need you in my life

(Chorus - all)
Thank God I found you (I'm thanking you)
I'm lost lost without you (so lost without you)
My every wish and every dream (every dream, every dream)
Somehow became reality
When you brought the sunlight (brought the sunlight)
Completed my whole life
I'm overwhelmed with gratitude
Cause baby I'm so thankful I found you.

-Bridge- (Mariah & Joe)
See I was so desolate
Before you came to me
Looking back I guess it shows
That we were destined to shine
After the rain to appreciate
The gift of what we have
And I'd go through it all over again
To be able to feel this way

(Chorus - all)
Thank God I found you
I'm lost lost without you (lost without you baby)
My every wish and every dream
Somehow became reality
When you brought the sunlight
Completed my whole life (whole life)
I'm overwhelmed with gratitude
Sweet baby I'm so thankful
I found you


(Chorus - all)
Thank God I found you
I'm lost lost without you
I'm overwhelmed with gratitude
My baby I'm so thankful
I found you

(Mariah)
I'm overwhelmed with gratitude
My baby I'm so thankful I found you

    i really like this song...
    i like the meaning of the lyrics... it's so touchy...
    even though it's emotional, it doesn't sound cheezy...
    the song is really pleasing to the ears and it's really powerful...
    for me it's really soothing...
    i think this is my fave song from all mariah's songs...
    it's so heartwarming

    mariah is so F.A.N.T.A.S.T.I.C.
    her voice is so NICE
    and her songs are magic...
    very powerful and sexy...
    her songs really reflects a bit of her personality
    the sexiness in each song is always and always there...
    all of us knows that she's old but it doesn't show, right?
    her beauty, her talent, her music... everything! everything about her is so consistent...
    she's just GREAT!
    very incomparable...

    The specific person, saw the one he/she is looking for... (the "perfect" one for the person) and now that they found each other it simply means that they completed the thing in their life that's missing...
