Mariah Carey has just shared “Save the day” as first single from her seventh compilation album “The rarities”.
Co-produced with Jermaine Dupri, the track samples Lauryn Hill’s vocals in the bridge of Fugees version of “Killing me softly with his song”.
“Save the day” was originally teased in 2011 during a studio session with Dupri and Randy Jackson. It was intended to be released as a charity single to raise money for human rights issues but, mysteriously, the song was never released at the time.
“The rarities” will be out October 2. The new project will contain unreleased cuts, b-sides and other rarities.
About it, Mariah said: “I found stuff in my vault that I had either started to work on a long time ago and never released or that I wanted to finish mixing. They’re songs that have previously not been released. It’s exciting and it’s a monumental occasion for my career.”

Lyrics:

We’re all in this together
You’re my only hope
And it’s too divided, too deep to understand
But if we don’t do it, tell me, who will?
Oh, we always say these words that don’t mean too much
I wonder, where is the love?
It’s curious
The fear still holding us down
One day, will we look up?

You got a right to your own opinion
But when it comes to the world we live in
Isn’t it the time that we start rebuilding
All of the things that makes me crumble
We all tend to forget that
We all ceasе to exist if
We all live for oursеlves
If nobody bothers to find a solution

If he won’t, and she won’t, and they won’t, then we won’t
We won’t ever learn to save the day, woah, oh
If he won’t, and she won’t, and they won’t, then we won’t
We won’t ever learn to save the day

We’re all in this together
You’re my only hope (Only hope)
And it’s too divided, too deep to understand
But if we don’t do it, tell me, who will? Yeah
Always say these words that don’t mean too much
I wonder, where is the love?
It’s curious
The fear still holding us back
One day, will we look up?
It’s up to us

If he won’t, and she won’t, and they won’t, then we won’t
We won’t ever learn to save the day, woah, oh
(To save the day, to save the day)
If he won’t, and she won’t, and they won’t, then we won’t (Come on, come on)
(Will we?) We won’t ever learn to save the day
(Ever learn, no)

La-la-la, la, la-la, la
Woah, la
Woah, la (Ah, ah, ah)
La

If he won’t, and she won’t, and they won’t, then we won’t
We won’t ever learn to save the day, woah, oh (To save the day)
If he won’t, and she won’t, and they won’t, then we won’t (And she won’t)
We won’t ever learn to save the day, woah, oh
(We’re gonna have to learn to save the day)
If he won’t, and she won’t, and they won’t, then we won’t
We won’t ever learn to save the day (To save the day)

We gon’ learn, we gon’ learn
Said we gotta learn
