Oh yeah
Oh, oh, yeah, oh, oh, yeah
It wasn't raining yet 
But it was definitely 
A little misty on 
That warm November night 
And my heart was pounding 
My inner voice resounding 
Begging me to turn away 
But I just had to see your face 
To feel alive 
And then you casually walked in the room 
And I was twisted in the web 
Of my desire for you 
My apprehension blew away 
I only wanted you 
To taste my sadness 
As you kissed me in the dark 

Every time I feel the need 
I envision you caressing me 
And go back in time 
To relieve the splendor of you and I 
On the rooftop that rainy night 

And so we finished the Moet and 
Started feeling liberated 
And I surrendered as you took me 
In your arms 
I was so caught up in the moment 
I couldn't bear to let you go yet 
So I threw caution to the wind 
And started listening to my longing heart 
And then you softly pressed your lips to mine 
And feelings surfaced I'd suppressed 
For such a long time 
And for a while I forgot 
The sorrow and the pain 
And melted with you as we stood 
There in the rain 

Every time I feel the need 
I envision you caressing me 
And go back in time 
To relieve the splendor of you and I 
On the rooftop that rainy night 
Every time I feel the need 
I envision you caressing me 
And go back in time 
To relieve the splendor of you and I 
On the rooftop that rainy night 

Last night I dreamed that I 
Whispered the words I love you 
And touched you so very 
Subtly as we were kissing goodbye 
Pretty baby, how I'm missing you

Every time I feel the need 
I envision you caressing me 
And go back in time 
To relieve the splendor of you and I 
On the rooftop that rainy night 

Every time I feel the need 
I envision you caressing me 
And go back in time 
To relieve the splendor of you and I 
On the rooftop that rainy night 
 
Every time I feel the need 
I envision you caressing me 
And go back in time  
To relieve the splendor of you and I 

Every time I feel the need 
I envision you caressing me 
And go back in time 
To relieve the splendor of you and I 
On the rooftop that rainy night
