You're Mine (Eternal) - Mariah Carey



The Experience: In a world full of broken loves, with divorces everywhere... just letting you say You're mine, and truly mean it, is the best Valentine anyone could give you...


Music video: The camera altenates between Mariah Carey sings in the rainforest, wearing little more than glitter, and Trey Songz (featured in the remix), by himself in bed with more glitter. The setup makes You're Mine's recipe for love even shakier in the video than in the lyrics. On paper this "never-ending" love based only on feelings, but in the video, there's not even any real relationship between Mariah and Trey. They're just two hot bodies. 

Meaning of You're Mine: When people think about love, forever is the first thing that comes to mind. Mariah Carey reminds us all that true love can ride the ups, the downs, and last through spring, summer, autumn, even winter, and never end. But there's one catch, and this is where both the song and the music video fall short. It's never enough to just feel or dream. Feelings eventually evaporate, and a sexy body - the centerpiece or better yet only piece of Mimi's music video - won't last forever.

Ask yourself: Are you capable of saying "forever", meaning it, and living up to it?

LYRICS:

Baby I didn’t know
Baby I didn’t know
Baby I didn’t know

Mine
Mine
Mine
You’re mine

I can’t seem to live without your love
Suffocating here by myself dying without your touch
Springtime eyes that get you every time
And I just can’t seem to give you up
You’re mine

You make me feel
Our love would never end
How can I forget
Baby we were the best
Suffered dreams of you all through the night
And baby I can’t seem to give you up
You’re mine

I can’t seem to give you up
You’re Mine
I can’t seem to give you up
You’re Mine

Summer days and summer nights
When I felt you in my arms
Didn’t I want you badly
Wanted to let you have me

Autumn days and stormy nights
When you crush me with your charms
Didn’t I need you madly
Now I’m lying here falling apart

I can’t seem to live without your love
Suffocating here by myself dying for your touch
Springtime eyes that get you every time
And I just can’t seem to give you up
You’re Mine

Boy you make me feel
Our love would never end
How can I forget
Baby we were the best
I suffer dreams of you all through the night
And baby I can’t seem to give you up
You’re Mine

I can’t seem to give you up
You’re Mine
I can’t seem to give you up
You’re Mine

Oh
You make me feel
Like love would never end
Tell me how can I forget that
My baby we were the best
And baby I can’t seem to
Give you up
You’re mine

I can’t seem to give you up
You’re Mine
I can’t seem to give you up

You’re Mine
