Lyrics for Always Be My Baby by Mariah Carey:

Verse 1
We were as one, babe
For a moment in time
And it seemed everlasting
That you would always be mine
Now you want to be free
So I'll let you fly
'Cause I know in my heart, babe
Our love will never die, no

Chorus
You'll always be a part of me
I'm part of you indefinitely
Boy, don't you know you can't escape me?
Ooh, darling, 'cause you'll always be my baby
And we'll linger on
Time can't erase a feeling this strong
No way you're never gonna shake me
Ooh, darling, 'cause you'll always be my baby

Verse 2
I ain't gonna cry, no
And I won't beg you to stay
If you're determined to leave, boy
I will not stand in your way
But inevitably
You'll be back again
'Cause you know in your heart, babe
Our love will never end, no

Chorus
You'll always be a part of me
I'm part of you indefinitely
Boy, don't you know you can't escape me?
Ooh, darling, 'cause you'll always be my baby
And we'll linger on
Time can't erase a feeling this strong
No way you're never gonna shake me
Ooh, darling, 'cause you'll always be my baby

Bridge
I know that you'll be back, boy
When your days and your nights get a little bit colder, oh
I know that you'll be right back, baby
Oh, baby, believe me, it's only a matter of time, time

Chorus
You'll always be a part of me
I'm part of you indefinitely
Boy, don't you know you can't escape me?
Ooh, darling, 'cause you'll always be my baby
And we'll linger on (And we will linger on and on)
Time can't erase a feeling this strong
No way you're never gonna shake me (Ooh baby)
Ooh, darling, 'cause you'll always be my baby
You'll always be a part of me
I'm part of you indefinitely
Boy, don't you know you can't escape me?
Ooh, darling, 'cause you'll always be my baby
(You and I) And we'll linger on
Time can't erase a feeling this strong (You and I)
No way you're never going to shake me (you and I)
Ooh, darling, 'cause you'll always be my baby

Outro
You and I will always be
No way you're never gonna shake me
No way you're never gonna shake me
You and I - we'll always be

Song Facts

“Always Be My Baby” is the third single from Mariah Carey’s fifth studio album Daydream The song became Carey’s 11th chart topper on Billboard Hot 100, tying her with Whitney Houston and Madonna for the most No. 1 singles by a female pop artist at that time. The song received universal acclaim from critics, who praised its instrumentation and “relaxed swing.”

The song’s producer, Jermaine Dupri, said that Carey initially wanted Daydream to have more of a hip-hop sound than her previous releases,

I remember the first track we tried to do, she wanted to sing over Wu-Tang’s ‘C.R.E.A.M.,’ and I was like, ‘What?’
