Mariah Carey Looking In Lyrics

Last updated: 11/17/2010 10:00:00 AM

You look at me and see the gril
Who lives inside the golden world
But don't believe
That's all there is to see
You'll never know the real me

She smiles through a thousand tears
And harbors adolescent fears
She dreams of all
That she can never be
She wades in insecurity
And hides herself inside of me

Don't say she takes it all for granted
I'm well aware of all I have
Don't think that I am disenchanted
Please understand

It seems as though I've always been
Somebody outside looking in
Well here I am for all of them to bleed
But they can't take my heart from me
And they can't bring me to my knees
They'll never know the real me

Thanks to for submitting Looking In Lyrics.

When my son was born in 97. I used to play this song for him to go to sleep(it would be on repeat all night). Now as a 13 yr old young man he has issues where he seems dienchanted with stuff and holds his emoitions in. This song seems to fit him to a tee. It makes me cry everytime. I hear it cause it so reminds me of him and everything he has gone through in his life. He and I have a great bond but there's always seems to have with everyone else but me. People get mad at him when he's like that but they don't know him or what he's been through.

this song made me a mariah fan, and till this day since I heard this, there has never been a song that has made the same impact on a very troubled young girl with some serious issues, who was about to develop a 9 year battle with anorexia,and who didn't think there was anyone in the world who knew how I was feeling or knew what I was going through, I heard this song for the first time and knew I wasn't on my own

AWESOME | Reviewer: little_girl | 2/21/10

This song is one of the most beautiful I've ever heard...I can completely relate to each of its words because my life seems so perfect and happy to the persons around me and I've always lived in a crystal globe..
...but nobody really knows how much I'm striving to survive, how much I'm craving to escape from depression and solitude, how much I long to be loved and embraced :(( how much I cry for someone to understand me...

So my boyfriend posted this song on his myspace today, after we got into a fight. I told him that I can see straight through him, and that he doesn't have to be so angry all the time. After reading the lyrics to this song (because I can't understand Mariah Carreys pitchy voice), I now understand him. If only I could take that pain away. There is no reason why someone should have to look in, like a stranger. It must be the most terrible feeling in the world.
