It's All Coming Back To Me Now
Pandora's Box 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 tear turned to dust
And I just knew my eyes were Drying up forever
I finished crying in the instant that you left
But 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
T
here were moments of gold
And there were flashes of light
There were things I'd never do again
But then they always seemed right
There were nights of sacred 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
B
ut it's all coming back to me now
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
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
There were flashes of light
There were things we'd never do again
But then they 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
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 of this
If I forgive you of that
We forgive and forget
And it's all coming back to me
When you see me like this
And when I see you like that
We see just 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
When you hold me like that
And if I touch you like this
And if we...

If you listen to the music and the background vocals they are the exact same as Celine's version. They didn't re-record them, she just replaced the lead vocal. Crazy.

Kevin Barnard

@The Pursuits of a Polymath I didn't say that it happened Polymath. I quoted Steinman saying that. That was his motivation.

The Pursuits of a Polymath

@Kevin Barnard Which doesn't happen in the book, in no way at all. At most, Heathcliff asks the sextant to dig up Cathy's grave, and he intends to open it, but does not go thru with it. He has the side wall removed from the coffin, and reburies her.

@Retrobox roy bittan played piano on celines version.

Alan Woodwind

@Ryan Clemmer this is the original because Jim Steinman was a prick and wouldn't let the Loaf do it first.

Hardly "crazy" or "forgery." Celine's version is a cover and is produced by the same person. Covers often use the same background vocals and songs often retain the demo vocals of session singers. Whitney Houston's cover of Chaka Khan's "I'm Every Woman" still has Chaka's vocals in the background.

No wonder this song is so good! It was originally an ‘80s song!

Gotta love it.  Ken Russell's crazy direction, the cast of London's production of Cats hired to play S&M angels, the fact Steinman originally wrote the song to be about Heathcliff dancing with Catherine's corpse from Wuthering Heights (a scene most adaptations leave out....)

Infra Minced

Oh my god, now I love this.

Chantell Snyder

@Ray Gordon Teaches Chess Why is that scene of Heathcliff dancing with Cathy's body so often left out in adaptations?
