THERE'S GOT TO BE A WAY

"There's got to be a way" is, lyrically, a piece of social concern about some of the ills in our society: homelesness, apartheid, bigotry (a subject close to Mariah's heart), and famine. Restrained in the verses, the chorus has a "churchy" feel, mostly due to the backing vocals, which begin to take off before the middle instrumental break and then soar at the key change close to the song's end as Mariah begins to demonstrate fully the extend of her range, fitting through upper register like a bird.

"There's got to be a way" was only released as a single in Europe, in stead of "I don't wanna cry". Unfortunately, this single flopped. It only reached number 54 in the UK.
