Sent From Up Above is the tenth track from Mariah Carey's self-titled debut album. It was released on June 12, 1990 through Columbia Records.

Critical reception Edit

In his review of the song author Chris Nickson states: “Sent from Up Above” slowed the tempo slightly, with an arrangement that owed a great deal to seventies soul, particularly softer bands like those of the Chi-Lites, but with some nineties technological touches to brighten its appeal.[1]

Trivia Edit

  • Mariah has never been sung live (in concert)
  • Mariah sung a snippet of the song with her longtime friend Trey Lorenz[2]

Lyrics Edit

[Intro]

I don't wanna live without your love

[Verse 1]
I can't imagine looking in someone else's eyes
What we have surpasses even paradise
It's hard to fathom
Reaching for someone else's hand
What we share is magic
Heaven had a plan

[Chorus]
Sent from up above (sent from up above)
So much love in my life
I can't get enough (just can't get enough)
Of your touch
Feels so right

[Verse 2]
Unending passion
Somehow the fire never dies
What we share is everlasting
Love without demise, oh, yes
He made it happen
Placed so much joy into our hands
What we dreamed we finally captured
Heaven took command

[Chorus]
Sent from up above
So much love in my life (in my life)
I can't get enough (no, no, no)
Of your touch
Feels so right
Sent from up above (sent from up above)
So much love in my life (in my life, in my life)
I can't get enough (just can't get enough)
Of your touch
Feels so right

[Bridge]
I don't wanna live without your love
Must have been sent from up above
Just can't get enough
I don't wanna live without your love
Must have been sent from up above
(Must have been sent from up above)

[Chorus]
Sent from up above
So much love in my life
I can't get enough
I don't wanna live without your love
Of your touch
You must have been sent from up above
Feels so right
Sent from up above
So much love in my life
I can't get enough (no, no)
Of your touch
Feels so right
Sent from up above
So much love in my life
I can't live without your love
You must have been sent from up above
I can't get enough
Of your touch

Feels so right
