Here are some notable lyrics to Janet's celebratory hit "Together Again," per Genius.

🎶There are times when I look above and beyond
There are times when I feel your love around me baby
I'll never forget my baby
When I feel that I don't belong
Draw my strength from the words when you said
Hey, it's about you, baby
Look deeper inside you, baby🎶
🎶Everywhere I go, every smile I see
I know you are there smilin' back at me
Dancin in moonlight I know you are free
'Cause I can see your star shinin' down on me🎶
