Lyrics 

There were nights when the wind was so cold

That my body froze in bed

If I just listened to it right outside the window

There were days when the sun was so cruel

That all the tears turned to dust

And I just knew my eyes were drying up forever

I finished crying in the instant that you left

And I can’t remember where or when or how

And I banished every memory you and I had ever made

But when you touch me like this

And you hold me like that

I just have to admit

That it’s all coming back to me

When I touch you like this

And I hold you like that

It’s so hard to believe but

It’s all coming back to me

It’s all coming back

It’s all coming back to me now

There were moments of gold

And there were flashes of light

There were things I’d never do again

But then they’d always seemed right

There were nights of endless pleasure

It was more than any laws allow

Baby, baby

If I kiss you like this

And if you whisper like that

It was lost long ago

But it’s all coming back to me

If you want me like this

And if you need me like that

It was dead long ago

But it’s all coming back to me

It’s so hard to resist

And it’s all coming back to me

I can barely recall

But it’s all coming back to me now

But it’s all coming back

There were those empty threats and hollow lies

And whenever you tried to hurt me

I just hurt you even worse and so much deeper

There were hours that just went on for days

When alone at last we’d count up all the chances

That were lost to us forever (Forever)

But you were history with the slamming of the door

And I made myself so strong again somehow

And I never wasted any of my time on you since then

But if I touch you like this

And if you kiss me like that

It was so long ago

But it’s all coming back to me

If you touch me like this

And if I kiss you like that

It was gone with the wind

But it’s all coming back to me

It’s all coming back, it’s all coming back to me now

There were moments of gold

And there were flashes of light

There were things we’d never do again

But then they’d always seemed right

There were nights of endless pleasure

It was more than all your laws allow

Baby, baby, baby

When you touch me like this

And when you hold me like that

It was gone with the wind

But it’s all coming back to me

When you see me like this

And when I see you like that

Then we see what we want to see

All coming back to me

The flesh and the fantasies

All coming back to me

I can barely recall

But it’s all coming back to me now

If you forgive me all this

If I forgive you all that

We forgive and forget

And it’s all coming back to me now

When you see me like this

And when I see you like that

Then we see what we want to see

All coming back to me

The flesh and the fantasies

All coming back to me

I can barely recall

But it’s all coming back to me now

And when you kiss me like this

(It’s all coming back to me now)

And when I touch you like that

(It’s all coming back to me now)

And if you do it like this

(It’s all coming back to me now)

And if we
