Carey, Mariah - Just To Hold You Once Again Lyrics

Do you know
How it feels
Lying here without you baby
You could never understand what's happening to me
So alone
Nothing's real
I just dream about you baby
And forever wonder why you had
To break free

Even though you're not my lover
Even though you're not my friend
I would give my all
To have you here
Just to hold you once again

It's so hard
To believe
I don't have you right beside me
As I long to touch you
But you're out of my reach
And my heart doesn't feel
It's so very cold inside of me
Just a shadow of someone that I used to be


You were the only one (only one)
That I allowed inside my heart
Now I'm just holding on
To something so far gone
Where did I go wrong

    My artist Mariah favorite album music box

  18. Farid El

    It was a true epiphany when I discovered Mariah. Back in those days, I was twelve, lost gay kid in a small town south of France. I fell in love with all the songs of Music Box instantly.
    All of them represented something of the process when I became a teenager. Gosh ! It was also the time when I really and genuinely fell in love for the first time.... I cried so many tears then and I ve just experienced it all over again tonight, as if I were that shy and very closeted kid again...
    This album also started my craving for learning English and thanks to it I m now an English teacher!
    Listening to Music Box again, especially All I 've ever wanted, Music Box, Just to hold you once again, and the final masterpiece Everythingfades away has made me cry so much tonight, nostalgia having this powerful bittersweet way of making you feeling all those buried feelings.
    When my man and I went to see Mariah in June in Paris, that reminiscence has been working its way to now. And I feel so good, even though the sadness .
    I stopped listening to Mariah like crazy, but I promise myself to let her extraordinary talented voiceand songs be part of my life again.

I probably won't say anything but " Hello,Mariah"..if I think you can hear my voice...

  48. Nina Deniz Dz

    Music box and Daydream albums are the best in Mariah's career.


    It's not even a question. Agreed.


    Her first 4 albums are untouchable.

    Jennavecia Dizneee Love

    I’ll have to say Debut, Emotions, Music Box and Butterfly are her best albums

    Cloud of reverie

    Jennavecia Dizneee Love Not daydream????????????

    Bavaria Dowling

    Music box, rainbow, and the emancipation of mimi are the best in my opinion. ❤

  65. Monica Moraes

    Lindas músicas faz parti da minha vida esse cd da Mariah Carey canta muito que voz Adoro ela Love you

  66. Lonely幾扣郎

    l'm love 2:11-2:18 so much.

  67. Dorian Bachman

    This is magic

  68. AXD 004

    If Mariah had kept up her 90s pace into the 2000s and 2010s, she'd be the undisputed greatest vocalist of all time.

    Ive Mc Fallen

    AXD 004 it's the pace, plus the drinking, emotional problems, the whispery vocals and nodules that killed her voice. If she had slown down, stopped the drinking, and got some emotional support, and especially stopped with the whispery vocals such as in charm bracelet and butterfly the nodules wouldn't have caused much damage

    Krystal Ha

    She did

  69. Doc Canoro

    I wish I could..

  70. demetrius mccullough

    Her Musicality is untouchable!!!

  71. Caleb Minaj

    The BEST song on Music Box is here!

  72. Blue-_Soldier 99

    Her going down the scale is more beautiful than her going up the scale. It's just something about her lower register that gets to me in this song.

  73. João Pedro

    You were the only one (only one)
    That I allowed inside my heart <3

  74. Kram Bacardi

    Mariah's songs back then expressed what she had been through with her life, with her heart. She put everything in songs, beautiful songs. And if we will compare her to the present Mariah you would see how different she is now thats because she had learned a lot from life. And she has the right to be that way.

  75. bcomesfirst s

    Lovely Mariah ♡

  76. Brenda Roberts

    I loved this song years ago .The meaning of it i wasn't sure at the time. I know now and it's a sad song , i can relate to it now .

  77. Lucas Nunes

    Now I understand that Music Box is more than Dreamlover...The Music Box Era is the era of the ballads

    Angel Johnson

    Lucas Nunes dreamlover is her best song

    Anna Rose Halen

    Than Daydream maybe.. Music Box and Butterfly, i think are her best albums, the lyrics are so powerful in both.

    Green Rocket

    Best album goes to music box of course.

  78. Dante Gossett

    this song is for Roger Pratt he made me a better person. it hurts so bad I lost him. I miss him every day. ♡

    thes song reminds of my girlfriend who broke up with me I was going out with her now she walked out and left me thes song reminds of me of all the love ones that left me hanging and used me for my money and did not even care for me I been through 7 8 reallyashships all of them did not work out now iam crying right now I am alone with nobudy who cares for me I wondered is she coming back and stud there and thinking she will come. back after I realized after three years ago I thought she never came back got a call saying I am with a better man then you are

  82. Lesego Mphefo

    My love for you bring every song life... #MyForever

  83. I Am I

    Mariah Carey is so underrated as a songwriter. She's the real queen. Her diva act is just a facade. I want 90s Mariah back. She sang to my soul 💔

    Joseph M. Sutton

    her career from 1990 to 2000 was pure gold, not a single bad song.


    Don't forget Walter Afanasieff the co-writer and producer on this album.

    Jay West

    @Joseph M. Sutton Did I Do That lol?

    kathy keranen


    celestial vibrationz

    I concur. It's a total facade. The diva, darling, sweetie, sort of ditzy Mariah she created I wanna say after the 2000. She's actually such a smart woman n I wish we all could have 90s Mariah back. Thise were Good Times!

  85. Mariah Elizabeth

    😭💔my best friend Andy...he will never know how much it hurts....

    Angel Johnson

    Mariah Elizabeth aww and your name is mariah perfect song

  86. The Mariah Empress

    Music Box is much more than just "Dreamlover", "Hero" and "Without You". Amazing Gem!!

    Stand up Straight With Your Shoulders Back

    The Mariah Empress yes and yes

    Mr. Game & Watch

    The Mariah Empress
    The ironic thing is that Dreamlover is so underrated in comparison to Hero and Without You

  90. William Ludeña

    This song's so soulful

  91. Farzeen Dawood

    I don't want to say this nut here goes... why are people comparing ARiana to Mariah Carey. I just don't understand. Mariahs voice has the ability to take you to that moment ... You just feel every single word she sings. ARiana has a decent voice but she's no songwriter . her lyrics are not timeless and her voice lacks that emotion. it's just my opinion. Mariah is often imitated but can never be duplicted.

    Wonder Woman89

    I agree!

    Terri Bora

    Aspiring Angel Yea. ... maybe they didn't grow up in the 90s. Mariah was the soundtrack to my college years. I remember where I was the first time I heard "Vision of Love" She got me through some rough times. Her voice literally heals..


    Farzeen Dawood exactly


    Thank you lamb. I agree! Comparing anyone to Mariah is an insult, but Ariana especially. I mean she’s ok in her own right, but her voice just doesn’t have the depth and richness that’s Mariah’s does. And why do people even want them to be the same? Also Ariana is up Nicki Minaj’s butt. They are “sisters”. Any lamb knows Nicki Minaj is no friend of Mariah or the lambily.

    rumors are true

    love the fact u kept saying ARiana
