Mariah Carey - When I Saw You Lyrics



Soft heavenly eyes gazed into me
Transcending space and time
And I was rendered still
There were no words for me to find at all
As I stood there beside myself
I could see you and no one else

[Chorus:]
When I saw you
When I saw you
I could not breathe
I fell so deep
When I saw you
When I saw you
I'd never be
I'd never be the same

Only once in a lifetime love rushes in
Changing you with the tide
And dawn's ribbon of light
Bursts through the dark
Wakening you inside
And I thought it was all untrue
Until there all at once I knew

[Chorus]

With no beginning and
Without an end
You are the one for me
And it's evident
And your eyes told me so
And your eyes let me know...

[Chorus]

Mariah Carey When I Saw You Comments
  1. San Chan

    Daydream was first album (cassette) of her I bought by picking it randomly at music shop. I didnt know much of foreign language but it has become my favourite album ever. I listened to her musics everywhere with sony soundabout. Later on I bought Music Box album and I loved it too. And now I have all of her albums and became real lamb. ❤❤ I wish Mariah happy and healthy forever.

  2. Video

    This is music, she is real artist with gift🙏
    Mariah I listen you since I was going to school and it was first album I buy female, from stolen money from family 😂
    I don't listen this 21 century pros, new female "artists"😁

  3. Vanessa Santos

    Soft heavenly eyes gazed into me
    Transcending space and time
    And I was a rendered still
    There were no words for me to find at all
    As I stood there beside myself
    I could see you and no one else

    When I saw you
    When I saw you
    I could not breathe
    I fell so deep, oh oh
    When I saw you
    When I saw you
    I'd never be
    I'd never be a same

    Only once in a lifetime love rushes in
    Changin' you with a tide
    And dawn's ribbon of light
    Bursts through the dark
    Wakening you inside
    And I thought it was all untrue
    Until there, all at once, I knew

    When I saw you
    When I saw you
    I could not breathe
    I fell so deep, oh oh
    When I saw you
    When I saw you
    I'd never be
    I'd never be the same

    With no beginning
    And without an end
    You are the one for me
    And it's evident
    And your eyes told me so, oh oh yeah
    Your eyes let me know, oh oh oh

    When I saw you
    When I saw you
    I could not breathe,
    I fell so deep, oh oh
    When I saw you
    When I saw you
    I'd never be
    I'd never be a same

    Oh no
    Never be the same

  42. Whitney Mcfarlane

    2019 anyone

  43. Honey S.

    This song is so sweet and romantic....like love at first sight 🎶

  44. Sam Mbabazi

  46. Rebekah Efu

  47. d man

  49. Jennifer Steward

    Nostalgia AF

  59. Lynsey Millward

    Crying right now 😪😪

  60. Lemmiwinks

    Dayum.... such an underrated song. I love it so much, and knowing she wrote it herself makes me have so much more respect and admiration for her.

  61. Mufumbi John Mulenga

    Daydream was a perfect album. There will never be anything like it ever again.

  62. Brandy Webb

    You are aware those were contacts right?.... I don't like people seeing my real eyes. Every woman I've dated all say the exact same thing: They can see a pain in my eyes and it saddens them to see that inside my eyes. A woman can't see my pain through my contacts. And they only see a nerd when I'm in glasses. Ironic huh....

  63. ꧁༺ Lamb ༻꧂

    How could she not perform this live?!!

  64. Anna Marfa

    Only Mariah uses words like "transcending" in her songs.

  65. Jennifer Steward

    Nostalgic!! 🎆

  66. Live by dodger stafi pPaul Campos

    She makes a tear come out

  67. Jason Francisco Joven

    I wish i had millions or even billions to buy Radio station just to play her songs. Lol. For this generation to truly know her advancement in singing, it's like she is from other dimension, her voice can adapt most every genre out there. So sad time can change all...

  68. Kauri Wilson

    I love the remakes from her argh! I do not care if the original artists sound better they're too old for me 😂

  69. Mihaela

    exceptional singing here. I bet the Diva is now listening to this and says heck I could belt out well back then :)

  70. Futsall Brasil

    Whenisawyouicouldnotbreatheidneverbethesame....

  71. Jennifer Murai

    How I feel when I saw my children for the first time....

  72. Salomé Adimoch

  73. Ms Makubutu Nonkululeko Kgothalo Lekota

    Reminds me of teens.

  74. gemma hallett

    We were so spoilt in the 90s with some of the very best female vocalists Mariah Carey Whitney Huston Toni Brixton celine dion just to name a few 💖 daydream is one of the best albums ever

  75. Jennifer Michelle Stacey

    But she talks 2 much about things that are none of her business... plus she left children... fucki g little barnes brats... fucking your dad what's his name... I remember...

  76. André BLONDELLE
