Mariah Carey – Out Here On My Own Lyrics

Out Here On My Own By Mariah Carey

Sometimes I wonder
Where I’ve been
Who I am
Do I fit in
Make believing is hard alone
Out here on my own

We’re always proving
Who we are
Always reaching for
That rising star
To guide me far and shine me home
Out here on my own

When I’m down and feeling blue
I close my eyes so I can be with you
Oh baby be strong for me
Baby belong to me
Help me through
Help me need you

Until the morning
Sun appears
Making light
Of all my fears
I dry the tears I’ve never shown
Out here on my own

But when I’m down and feeling blue
I close my eyes so I can be with you
Oh baby be strong for me
Baby belong to me
Help me through
Help me need you

Sometimes I wonder
Where I’ve been
Who I am
Do I fit in
I may not win but I can’t be thrown
Out here on my own

Out here on my own
