Mariah Carey - Vanishing Lyrics




If I could recapture
All of the memories
And bring them to life
Surely I would

Hear the distant laughter
Wasn't it you and me
Surviving the night
You're fading out of my sight
Swiftly

[Chorus:]
You're vanishing
Drifting away
You're vanishing

I was so enraptured
No sensibility
To open my eyes
I misunderstood

Now you're fading faster
It's suddenly hard to see
You're taking the light
Letting the shadows inside
Swiftly

[Chorus]

Reaching out into the distance
Searching for spirits of the past
Just a trace of your existence to grasp
And if somehow I could recapture
All of the memories
And bring them to life
Lord knows I would

But now you're fading faster
Getting so hard to see
Taking the light
Letting the darkness inside
Swiftly

[Chorus]

    Oh, I was so enraptured
    No sensibility

    Drifting so far away
    Oh, (vanishing) vanishing, oh yeah (vanishing) away

    There are no adequate words. Just had an onslaught of heavenly Frisson occur. Che Bella!

  5. CyprusHot

    Her EAR and timing is amazing. She is the greatest !

  6. Analytical Vocal coach

    Greatest vocalist of all time as a well known vocal coach since 1988 I’ve had the privilege seeing her live in 1996 at London for the daydream concert and from attending that concert I left bald and can I just say that she outsang every single singer in the world including Whitney by miles who I saw in 1988 in Wembley but Mariah surpassed her and any other singer in history

  9. Just Cade

    She is the best singer ever. Her voice got even better than this from 93 to 96.

  10. Whitney Houston

    this performance is amazing but my girl has some pitch problems especially at the bottom of her runs for example 3:11

    C R

    Lmao, the attempt. She was the queen of melisma.

  11. Gigi Lujano

    Jesus!! There’s no one like her!🙌🏻 👑💜❤️💜

  12. Henry

    The transition and the whistle near the end are not even her studio version right?

    Gladys Luna

    Correct. The studio version is amazing but this is out of this world!

  13. mz may

    Mariahs early days her and her sister Alison look do much alike. Mariah's vocal range is unbelievable. What a beautiful gift.

  14. 찌찌찌

    한국인 있나여 그냥 궁금해서..ㅎ

  15. Bryan Morello

    JESUS CHRIST.

  16. Name Last Name

    Still in 2019

  17. anna torres

    Let's not forget the classic look she had fully dressed and still so sexy.. this version of Mariah anyway lol

  18. Karine Abel

    At the time, Mariah Carey was a diva ... she had all her vocal abilities. People often compare it to Ariana, but it has nothing to do with it. Mariah Carey's voice was better, Ariana sings very well but is softer.

  19. Roman Nieuwkerk

    “sprits of theee passt... somebody’s doin the wrong note”

  20. Jordan Johnson

    Ariana could never come close 2 the queen

  21. arianaxlamb

    LEGENDARY

  22. Victor Muñoz

    Perfect 😙

  23. Juandre‘ Diaz

    The rehearsal was better than the live... She's so good

  24. Ty Love

    2:28 What you all came for.

  25. J. O.

    When Mariah tells you that you're doing the wrong note






    You *BETTER* get your note right!

  26. jjjonse

    One of my favorites from her.

  27. Bee love

    This is rehearsal by the way

  28. Trevor Morris

    Good if you like all those melismas and runs. To me they seem hugely overdone and tasteless. A shame because I was enjoying it at first. For me being a great singer is not just what you are able to do with your voice, but what you actually choose to do with it. All the best technique and voice in the world aren't enough without the musical intelligence to use them properly.
    This is the subjective bit. For me, she doesna do that. She's like some of those mad Gospel singers that embellish and embellish, and one wonders what the hell they're trying to do with the song. Christina Aguilera is another singer who tends to do that. When I first listened to a Mariah Carey clip it put me in mind of Xtina. Wikipedia's article on Mariah mentions her heavy use of melisma and said it influenced a lot of Idol contestants who were "melisma-mad Mariah wannabes".
    It's no matter what I think anyway. She has a vast number of fans who love her, and have made her one of the biggest selling artists ever. If you like the tremulous wispy voice she often uses, and the mad melismas that's okay. I would still like somebody to recommend a couple uptempo numbers for me to see another side of her.

    John Johnson

    Mariah is one of few singers whose constant runs and melismas I enjoy, and I feel it adds greater texture to the songs rather than take away. She understands timing and technique. So, it rarely feels overdone. But it's just a matter of personal taste.

    Trevor Morris

    @John Johnson
    Well we're agreed that ultimately it's a matter of personal taste. I think one of the things I don't like about Mariah's runs, at least what I've listened to, is that there's no Bluesy feel to them, and I always miss that. Haley Reinhart for instance, uses melisma and wee fill-ins as well, although not to the extent of Mariah. However, there is nearly always a bluesy touch to her phrasing of them which appeals very much to me. But there you are; it is personal taste.

  29. Isaac Bell

    2:29 somebody’s doin the wrong note 😂😂😂💖💫

  30. Ingrid Hanson

    If Mariah Carey says you’re singing the wrong note, you’re singing 👏 the 👏 wrong 👏 note. Also, that transition from belt to whistle, WHAT?! 😳

  75. ckdesert

    Mariah said "Someone is singing the wrong note", but what you didn't hear once the camera stopped rolling was her sayin'..."WHAT CHU NOT GONE DO IS......"

  76. Rajendra Starks

    This is why I STAN DOWN‼

  77. Snatchedness Prevails

    Looks like black dress was still in the laundry

  78. Pwettypwushie

    Honestly when someone is doing the wrong note it can throw you off, especially if you're not relying on your own feedback.

  79. Damian Jo

    That person better had get into gear and find that correct note else...lol! She knows her music inside out...truly amazing!

  80. cesar garces

    this is better tan arianas whole carrer

  86. vin91100

    @ 0:56 "Bitch, don't make me say that you're doing the wrong note"

  87. cirej25

    Like a fuckibg boss!!!

    “Somebody’s doing the wrong note!”

  88. Chris Quidlat

    It’s so cute at the end she was just laughing, she wasn’t even mad at all.

  89. The Normal Boy

    That Whistle at the end is Just perfect

  90. girl groups always win

    the day she did this should be a public holiday wtf

  91. Jock Marais ASMR

    I like Ariana but people who compare vocals like this to vocals Ariana does, simply don’t know the technical side of singing. They think similar sound or tone means they have the same ability. They don’t. Ariana is amazing, but Mariah is God-tier and nobody’s ever come close, so don’t expect Ari to be the one who does.

  92. Brielle Victoria G. Rodriguez

    Queen Mimi:
    Queen of the

  95. Nick Michael

    The Mariah slight but Hard stare at 0.58,You know Ms Patrique had to go,bitch is carrying on in between rehearsals.
    I think through the years many people who have come into Mariah’s orbit ans have taken her kindness and generosity for weakness,and been banished
