She was kind of fragile
And she had a lot to grapple with
But basically she kept
It all inside

Childlike and effervescent
With a well of pain
The depth of I could not imagine
If I tried

Never thought that I
Would hear them say
Twister went and threw it all away

She was kind of magical
Her laughter sent you casually
Floating through a moment
Of release

Dear God, it's all so tragic
And I'll never have the chance
To feel the closure
That I untimately need
No, I never dreamed
That there would come a time
Twister'd go and leave it all behind

Lord I pray she's found some peace
And her soul's somewhere at ease

Yeah I'm feeling kind of fragile
And I've got a lot to handle
But I guess this is my way
Of saying goodbye

    This song is about her beloved hairdresser and makeup artist that commited suicide. This song has nothing to do in fact with the movie, Glitter. Mariah was very distressed with the news of this tragic event so she created this song around the same time the movie was made so they added it into the movie where you will hear clips of the song during the movie. Although the snippets are only of the beginning, it is credited in the end of the movie. This song is very sentimental and made me cry while listening. You really have to listen to it deeply to understand it and look at the lyrics. I'm surprised to why this song didn't get more credit and became a #1 single.
