THE MARIAH NETWORK

Caution

Fans got a glimpse of Mariah Carey's fourteenth studio album (fifteenth if the "Glitter" soundtrack is included) on September 13, when "GTFO" was released as a buzz single. The song, produced by Mariah and Nineteen85, sampled Porter Robinson's 2014 "Goodbye To A World."

"With You," produced by Mariah and DJ Mustard, was released as the album's lead single on October 4, 2018. Other tracks made available before the album's release were "The Distance," featuring rapper Ty Dolla $ing, and "A No No," which sampled Lil Kim's 1997 hit "Crush On You."

"Caution" was released on November 16, 2018 and debuted at number five on the Billboard 200 after selling over 51,000 copies in the US, becoming Mariah's eighteenth top-ten album.

The Japanese physical edition of the album featured a bonus track, "Runway," which samples Mariah's 1997 "Butterfly" song. The digital edition features a different version of the same song, featuring Japanese rapper KOHH.

How 'bout you
How 'bout you

You took my love for granted
You left me lost and disenchanted
Bulldozed my heart as if you planned it
My prince was so unjustly handsome

Who was a knight in shining armor
I could have sworn you'd love me harder
Might as well down this Caymus bottle
I ain't the type to play the martyr

How 'bout you get the fuck out

How 'bout you get the fuck out
Get the fuck out

How 'bout you take your tings and be on your merry way
Fly off with the wind, bye bye baby
Scusa mi Mimi call you a valet
Take your tings and be on your merry way

My friends all saw it in your eyes
They told me once, they told me twice
I looked beyond all the signs
I guess false love makes you blind

Who was a knight in shining armor
I could have sworn you'd love me harder
Might as well down this Caymus bottle
I ain't the type to play the martyr

How 'bout you get the fuck out

How 'bout you get the fuck out
Get the fuck out

How 'bout you take your tings and be on your merry way
Fly off with the wind, bye bye baby
Scusa mi Mimi call you a valet
Take your tings and be on your merry way

How 'bout you get the fuck out
How 'bout you get the fuck out
(Fuck out, fuck out)
(Stop tellin' me these lies when you're bluffin')

How 'bout you get the fuck out
(Go stay at your friend's house or something)
(Don't mean to be rude, but take your shit and leave)

How 'bout you
(Go stay at your friend's house or something)

How 'bout you
(Go stay with your homeboys you was talkin' to)

How 'bout you
(I ain't trying to be rude, but you're lucky)

How 'bout you get the fuck out
(I ain't kick your ass out last weekend)

With you you you (x3)

It was oh so overwhelming
She was like I don't know don't tell me
He had eyes that say girl I'll save ya
She had doubts that they might not make it

So they both held tight to face it
There were vows she was 'bout to take 'em
She was full of such trepidation
They're in front of the whole damn nation

It was whoa
Can't predict the coming storm
Promise that you'll keep me warm
I don't want to play this wrong
He said yo
I've been loving you so long
Ever since that Bone Thugs song
You ain't got to breakdown you're too strong'

Ooh shots of Remy
Playin' Confessions and our bodies blending
Ooohh I'm in love it's true
Yeah, damn I fux witchu
And we all make mistakes sometimes
But we'll muddle through
I don't know what I'm supposed to do
Baby I'm in love it's true

With you you you (x3)
Baby I'm in love it's true

Waves were breaking on the shore
As we were sneaking through that door
Had to leave by half past four
Still I yearned to touch you more and more

It was whoa
Can't predict the coming storm
Promise that you'll keep me warm
I don't want to play this wrong
He said yo
I've been loving you so long
Ever since that Bone Thugs song
You ain't got to breakdown you're too strong'

Ooh shots of Remy
Playin' Confessions and our bodies blending
Ooohh I'm in love it's true
Yeah, damn I fux witchu
And we all make mistakes sometimes
But we'll muddle through
I don't know what I'm supposed to do
Baby I'm in love it's true

Ooh shots of Remy
Playin' Confessions and our bodies blending
Ooohh I'm in love it's true
Yeah, damn I fux witchu
And we all make mistakes sometimes
But we'll muddle through
I don't know what I'm supposed to do
Baby I'm in love it's true

With you you you (x3)
Baby I'm in love it's true

With you you you (x2)

Never too late, you can come through I'll be up waiting
I don't want nobody but you, no hesitating
'Cause every time you leave I fall apart
Boy you're the missing pieces of my heart

And I try to let you go but you resist and pull me back
And I've tried to be alone but you persist I met my match

Proceed with caution don't be dishonest
I need you closer to love me harder
Proceed with caution face to face
And touch me in a different kind of way
Proceed with caution but don't make me wait
Before too long
It just might fade away
Proceed with caution, caution, caution, caution, caution

Never enough give me your touch, don't want to waste time
You lift me up, give me that rush, tell me it's all mine
I'll give up everything to be right where you are
I'll follow you from here like you're the northern star

And I try to let you go but you resist and pull me back
And I've tried to be alone but you persist I met my match

Proceed with caution don't be dishonest
I need you closer to love me harder
Proceed with caution face to face
And touch me in a different kind of way
Proceed with caution but don't make me wait
Before too long
It just might fade away
Proceed with caution, caution, caution, caution, caution

Do you want more material possessions, ain't nothin'
Do you want more can you commit to be my everything
Do you want more baby convince me with the words you sing
If you wanna be more to me you must proceed with caution, caution, caution, caution, caution
Proceed with caution

Proceed with caution don't be dishonest
I need you closer to love me harder
Proceed with caution face to face
And touch me in a different kind of way

I ain't even mad no not like before
Off with your head now slither out the door
Snakes in the grass it's time to cut the lawn
Ed Scissor Hands aka I cut you off

No, you ain't gonna lie to my face no more
Hit me with I'm sorry but I'm sorry... no
Na na na na na na na na no ahh no
Give me Ed Shapiro on the phone case closed
Aaahhh, aaahhh, aaahhh

You should have known that it's bigger than you
You'll never know what I already knew
After everything I've already been through
I can't waste no time pay no attention to you
I said no
No no, no, a no no
No no, that's a no no
No no, I said a no no
No no, no

You came so close
You just don't know
Regardless of what transpired
It ain't even worthy of a slick reply

Even if I was the last woman alive
I would be like Ginger you ain't Gilligan
I really don't care I'm in love with the island
Rockin' Dior 'cause it goes with my diamonds
Got a pink gown custom by Alaia
I'll be on stage when the stadium lights up

You should have known that it's bigger than you
You'll never know what I already knew
After everything I've already been through
I can't waste no time pay no attention to you
I said no
No no, no, a no no
No no, that's a no no
No no, I said a no no
No no, no

I said no
No no, no, a no no
No no, that's a no no
No no, I said a no no
No no, no

He's a slut, he's a ho, he's a freak
Got a different girl every day of the week
He's a slut, he's a ho, he's a freak
Got a different girl every day of the week
He's a slut, he's a ho, he's a freak
Got a different girl every day of the week
He's a slut, he's a ho, he's a freak
Got a different girl every day of the week

I said no

Look, I said no

Ain't nobody stoppin' us
What we have is dangerous
Left they opinions in the dust
Said can't nobody fuck with us
They'll never find a way, to make us fade away
Our love won't fade away
They'll never find a way, to make us fade away
Our love won't fade away

Warm days, cold nights
Late October
Separated, people sayin' what we had was over
But the hate only made us get closer
And closer

Said we couldn't go the distance
Look at us we goin' the distance
They just wanna be us, they don't wanna see us goin' the distance
For laughs, for laughs, la di da
Said we couldn't go the distance
For life, for life, la di da
Look at us we goin' the distance
Distance

They was no good, had their hands out
Tried to diminish me
But we stayed down, kept on that crown
In spite of them difficulties
But they can't, but they can't, but they can't
Take away them precious memories
And I won't, and I won't, and I won't
Let 'em come between you and me

Warm days, cold nights
Late October
Separated, people sayin' what we had was over
But the hate only made us get closer
And closer

Said we couldn't go the distance
Look at us we goin' the distance
They just wanna be us, they don't wanna see us goin' the distance
For laughs, for laughs, la di da
Said we couldn't go the distance
For life, for life, la di da
Look at us we goin' the distance
Distance

Ty Dolla $ign:
We been goin' all the way for the longest
We're too strong, we're too solid
They can't stop it now, we a problem now
Fuck all their comments, they be so toxic
We be kissin' in public
You like it, I love it
You wit it, I'm wit it
We goin' the distance

Said we couldn't go the distance
Look at us we goin' the distance
They just wanna be us, they don't wanna see us goin' the distance
For laughs, for laughs, la di da
Said we couldn't go the distance
For life, for life, la di da
Look at us we goin' the distance
Distance

So it's summertime, a splash of wine and forget about it
If you're so inclined let's take a ride tonight
So then maybe if the stars align we'll fix our minds on another tangent
And it's kinda like impossible to top this at all

Giving me life and it's everything
Thinking about when we were 17
Feeling myself like I'm Norma Jeane
Here is my arms is where you should be

It wasn't really, it wasn't really, much, it wasn't really much at all
Wasn't really, wasn't really, wasn't really much at all

My philosophy doesn't quite apply to you and me
But I won't think too much so come on and feel my touch
It wasn't really much at all
Just a little sensitivity of the soul
Here in my heart is where you should be

Giving me life and it's everything
Thinking about when we were 17
Living like Babs 'cause it's evergreen
Here is my arms is where you should be

It wasn't really, it wasn't really, much, it wasn't really much at all
Wasn't really, wasn't really, wasn't really much at all

Slick Rick:
Wassup, ma? Hush, got fly
Here's a quest, why you left?
Was it my messed up eye? Why?
Reminisce, wannabe, huh?
See, hon, followed sheep from once the first chick
Clark Wallabees on (Beep, beep)
Swag, honey drip, spendin' some time
Remember them rhymes?
Your gold fronts looked better than mines did
Was ecstasy, poundin' in the BM
Clownin' me and that was way before wore gowns and the skin'
Givin' me life

Giving me life and it's everything
Thinking about when we were 17
Living like Babs 'cause it's evergreen
Here is my arms is where you should be

Repeat

Did you like when I put my lips there
'Cause I like when you kissin' me everywhere
Do you mind if we go back in
One mo'gen
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, one mo' gen (x3)
Can we just get it in one mo' gen

You give that the fever I ain't tryin' to break
Been a little while but I don't mind to wait
I'm gonna need a ride home now sooner than later
Must I reiterate can we pick up the pace
And once we lit this towering inferno
The flame keeps burning higher hotter we go
And the temperature is rising crack a window
Let's be the opposite of lonely
Come and give me what you owe me

Did you like when I put my lips there
'Cause I like when you kissin' me everywhere
Do you mind if we go back in
One mo'gen
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, one mo' gen (x3)
Can we just get it in one mo' gen

Ain't no use in being stingy with it
If you think you're getting off, forget it
And if you think it ain't all for you, you're wrong
Baby it's all for you

Addicted to you come support my habit
Third person yeah she got to have it
If you think I'm on call for you, you're right
Baby I'm on to you

And once we lit this towering inferno
The flame keeps burning higher hotter we go
And the temperature is rising crack a window
Let's be the opposite of lonely
Come and give me what you owe me

Did you like when I put my lips there
'Cause I like when you kissin' me everywhere
Do you mind if we go back in
One mo'gen
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, one mo' gen (x3)

I'm not your world, no, I'm not your life
Tell me what that means to you
If it was me that was by your side
Limitless without no rules
Nothing to lose
Never no pressure just put yourself into my shoes
I'm not your world, no, I'm not your life

That cigarette, put it out put it out
Keep lookin' my way, turn around turn around
This is a moment you can't buy
I see the longing in your eyes

Somethin' is tellin' me you're ready, am I wrong
Maybe the lyrics are too heavy, in my song
How would you feel if you had me then I was gone
Better not be leading me on

I'm not your world, no, I'm not your life
Tell me what that means to you
If it was me that was by your side
Limitless without no rules
Nothing to lose
Never no pressure just put yourself into my shoes
I'm not your world, no, I'm not your life

I'm a confirmation should you feel unsure
I'm that security when you're insecure
I'll be that baby girl when you're immature
Don't be ambivalent towards me

Somethin' is tellin' me you're ready, am I wrong
Maybe the lyrics are too heavy, in my song
How would you feel if you had me then I was gone
Better not be leading me on

Where do I go from here
How do I disappear
Here beyond the looking glass
Somewhere off the beaten path
Heartache never seems to pass
Just lasts, and I'd go

Yet I know what 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
Portrait of my life

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

Yet I know what 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
Portrait of my life

Yet I know what tomorrow comes so I'll be here when you rise
Stay real close and the moment will subside
(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

There'll come a day when we won't have to fight
Won't be about who was wrong who was right
Like fireflies emanating the light
Just you and I universally tied
There's truth for those if they want to hear
Somewhere out in the atmosphere
To survive gotta persevere
Cause to fly gotta have no fear

First they love you, like ooo it's just you
And then they bait you and try to change you
You can push thru it stay the same you and
Never let em bring you down
Remember there's only one you
And there's a God up above you
You can soar above the hurt when it taunts you
Float like a hummingbird if you want to

Let love be your runway
There is a higher place
Just embrace that feeling when you're rising
And your face is kissing the horizon
And if they count you out
Let go and watch you drown
Just shake off those demons that you're fighting
Win the race keep kissing the horizon

Runway...
Runway...
Just shake off those demons that you're fightin
Win the race, let love be your runway

There's a band of color that reflects the love you have inside
And you will discover there is solace though you're terrified
And I promise there is truth for those who really want to hear
If you wanna touch the sky and fly you've got to have no fear

First they love you and then they judge you
And try and chain you and then they drain you
You can push through it stay the same you and
Never let em bring you down
Remember there's only one you
And there's a God up above you
You can soar above the hurt when it taunts you
Float like a hummingbird if you want to

Let love be your runway
There is a higher place
Just embrace that feeling when you're rising
And your face is kissing the horizon
And if they count you out
Let go and watch you drown
Just shake off those demons that you're fighting
Win the race keep kissing the horizon

Runway...
Runway...
Just shake off those demons that you're fightin
(Baby I'm your runway)
Win the race let love be your runway

Runway...
Runway...

Let love be your runway
There is a higher place
Just embrace that feeling when you're rising
And your face is kissing the horizon
And if they count you out
Let go and watch you drown
Just shake off those demons that you're fighting
Win the race keep kissing the horizon
