Carey, Mariah - I've Been Thinking About You Lyrics

We've known each other
For a long long time But I never really noticed
All the magic in your eyes
I've been around you
A thousand times before
And you've always been a friend to me
But now I'm wanting more
I must have been so blind
I never realized
You're the one that's right for me
All the while I couldn't see
And now I feel so strange
I'll never be the same
Going 'round and 'round in circles
And I don't know what to do
'Cause baby

I've been thinking about you
In the most peculiar ways
I've been thinking about you
It's unbelievable to me
But suddenly I think
I'm falling in love with you

There's no explaining how I feel inside
I'm going thru a transformation
That's so hard for me to hide
I had a revelation that
Finally opened up my eyes
The one I spent a lifetime searching for
Was right here all the time
I was oblivious so very out of touch
All the while I couldn't see
You're the one that's right for me
And now my world has changed
I'll never be the same
Going 'round and 'round in circles
And it's all because of you
Sweet baby



Don't you know
That you're blowing my mind
What you do to me
I can't describe
Baby I can't hold back anymore
I just can't conceal it
You're the one I really adore

I've been thinking about you
In the most peculiar ways

I've been thinking about you
In the most peculiar ways

[Chorus (x3)]

  5. bridget casseaux

    This one of her best songs seriously

  6. Meme Doctor

    I have feeling that this song was meant for 1st or 2nd album. Vocal timbre is very debut'ish also. Does someone knows when exactly it was written?

  7. Randon Lambert

    I still love this song

  8. Mariah Szypryt

    The belts and the way she did 'em sounds lile you're so cold

  17. Brandon Lambert

    Mariah Carey is an icon. Twenty 29 years into her career and she's still relevant and still releasing amazing music. Mariah is to be revered and respected not ridiculed.

    Angel Johnson

    Brandon Lambert amen

  18. Hore Store

    tbh this song, ATYNAF and Now That I Know are the only songs i can tolerate off of Music Box, it really is her most boring and least creative album

    Angel Johnson

    Hore Store are you serious? some people think its her best i loved this album emotions and charmbracelent my top 3 favorites by her!!!

    Hore Store

    Angel Johnson too many adult contemporary ballads, I think Butterfly and Charmbracelet are really good though

    Angel Johnson

    Hore Store oh ok

    Hec Sol

    Matter of opinion for sure. From your previous comment, charmbracelet is probably the most boring album lol

  35. Never Forget You

    Mr. Fantastic

    Never Forget You maybe because it reminds you a bit of emancipation of Mimi vocal break? Or butterfly? Or something? Hahah

  36. One Dollar Bleach

    I LOVE HOW THIS SOUNDS!!!!!!!!!! NO wonder musicbox is her *BEST* selling album! <3<3<3<3

    Aleksa Mrkela

    This is the quintessential '90s sound in terms of arrangement. :)


    @The Vocal Trinity where do you get these numbers from?

    The Vocal Trinity

    I don't know, i just know these numbers by memory. I guess it's on wikipedia or smth


    @The Vocal Trinity On wikipedia it says music sold 28million ww and daydream more than 20 million >_>

    The Vocal Trinity
