Released in 1984. Originally recorded by Foreigner, the song was written by their guitarist Mick Jones. When asked about Mariah Carey's version of I Want To Know What Love Is , he told Songfacts: "I think she's put a lot of emotion into it. You can feel that she's gotten inside of the song." The song was No.1 in U.S.A. and U.K.
I gotta take a little time, a little time to think things over
I better read between the lines, in case I need it when I'm older
Now this mountain I must climb, feels like the world upon my shoulders
