One of her more obscure tracks, it's from the Daydream album but amongst fans is considered one of her greatest songs.

It was ok. Not a patch on the album vocal. The belting parts are flat..and sound more like someone trying to impersonate her.

And the part where she stops, looks more like a lyric forgetting 'moment' than an emotional one.

Ok? it was more than ok, it was fantastic. Bare in mind that she was singing with not one but two broken ribs, plus a fractured shoulder bone and nerve damage! She was in a lot of pain but still went ahead with the show and sang 100% live.

She didn't forget the lyrics, the song is deeply personal to her and she got upset, you can even see tears in her eyes.

"She wades in insecurity, and hides herself inside of me"

I'm surprised she has never sung this before.

TBH her voice is not what it was, A Good performance lacking a little depth as her vocal sounded a little falt and breathy.

Not a huge Mariah fan, but this is one of my favourite songs by her. I think her vocals on this are great. There was a time a couple of years ago when she sounded horrible live, but she seems to be getting her voice back. It doesn't sound that different from the recording.

I feel she needs to do more personal eccentric tracks like this instead of the run of the mill R&B/ hip hop flavoured tracks she has relied on.

I know this song since 95 and I'm maybe a bit too familiar with it. It is NOT a good rendition. It's funny she decided to do it in her apparent 'serious' state. She's playing up a bit. I'm a huge Mariah fan! How can ye not see it?

She has a cracked rib and a dislocated arm. I think she did fine considering all that!

Some people can't help complaining.

And after yet another listen, if you truly think she doesn't sound flat and weak during the bridge, you're delusional.
