Portrait Lyrics by Mariah Carey


FWhere do I go from here?
How do I disappear?
Here beyond the looking glass
Somewhere off the beaten path
Heart ache never seems to pass, just lasts
And I’d go…

Yet I know that tomorrow comes, so I’ll be here when you rise
Stay real close and the moment will subside
Look the other way as I bottle myself up inside
I won’t let the teardrops spill tonight
Just conceal myself and hide
A portrait of my life
La da da da da
La da da da da

Somewhat desensitized
Still the same hopeful child
Haunted by those severed ties
Pushing past the parasites
Down but not demoralized
Unconfined, but don’t let go…

Yes I know that tomorrow comes, so I’ll be here when you rise
Stay here close and the moment will subside
Look the other way as I bottle myself up inside
I won’t let the teardrops spill tonight
Just conceal myself and hide
A portrait of my life

And for the finale, she can float around effortlessly
And dream away the hours in her mind
And I’d let go…

Yet I know that tomorrow comes, so I’ll be here when you rise
Stay here close and the moment will subside
Look the other way as I bottle myself up inside
I won’t let the teardrops spill tonight
Just conceal myself and hide
This portrait of my life
