English - Belonging

Part 1: Questions on TWO related texts

Belonging's a word that's enriching,
For Be is to Am as Longing is to Wanting,
A place we all strive to be...
Belonging for you and for me.

Amwanting is where dreams come alive,
Where love is shared and friendships survive,
Where the deaf can hear and blind can see...
Belonging for you and for me

Amwanting fulfills emotional needs,
Where companionship reigns with no call for pleas,
A place with a sense of community...
Belonging for you and for me.

Amwanting is things all just and right,
Where fear of rejection is never in sight,
A place where you can truly be free...
Belonging for you and for me.

We belong together by Mariah Carey
I didn't mean it when I said I didn't love you so
I should've held on tight, I never should've let you go
I didn't know nothing, I was stupid, I was foolish
I was lying to myself

I could not fathom I would ever be without your love
Never imagined I'd be sitting here beside myself
'Cause I didn't know you, 'cause I didn't know me
But I thought I knew everything
I never felt

The feeling that I'm feeling now that I don't hear your voice
Or have your touch and kiss your lips 'cause I don't have a choice
