languishing (the interlude) lyrics – mariah carey

“languishing (the interlude)”

if you could only see
that i was not put here for you
to judge me and dispute my inner most truth

and after all these years of enmity, envy and tears
it’s a shame you don’t know me at all

i was wondering
would you cry for me?
if i told you that i couldn’t breathe
if i was drowning, suffocating
if i told you that i couldn’t breathe

those ancient buried recollections
we transform them and select them
you have yours, i have mine
that’s fine
while we’re too torn to heal
our st*tch has never disappeared
i have mine, you have yours
i’m sure

i was wondering
would you reach for me
if you saw that i was languishing
i was wondering would you cry for me
if i told you that i couldn’t breathe
if i was drowning, suffocating
if i told you that i couldn’t breathe
