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
Its so hard to believe but
Its all coming back to me
(its 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 theyd 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
Its 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 wed 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
(its 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 wed never do again
But then theyd 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
When you see me like this
And when I see you like that
We see just what we want to see
Al 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

(its all coming back to me now)
And when you kiss me like this
(its all coming back to me now)
And when I touch you like that
(its all coming back to me now)
If you do it like this
(its all coming back to me now)
And if we...

    I LOVE this song. The meaning for me is that if two people that are in love and leave each other, anything could happen and all of the love they shared could just come back like that.

    This song reminds me of my ex; we made decisions back then, which ultimately resulted in us splitting up and going our separate ways. Now, years and years later, I think of him whenever I hear this song. If only there was a way, if only the distance wasn't so great, if only "life" hadn't happened, and we were closer and able to see each other. I know that one look in each other's eyes, and all those feelings from years ago would resurface, and change both our lives forever. I still love him, so much. I have never regretted anything more, than choosing to end our relationship years ago. Worse mistake of my life. If we ever are together again, I am never letting this man go.

    To me this is a song of lost love found again. In contrast the the author's concept (and celine dion's video) of a lover lost to death, i see it as a love that was torn apart by time and circumstance being reclaimed when the lovers give in to their memories of the good thing they had.

    Wow!!! Amazing song.. Above all, a legendary singer!!! The lyrics simply depicts a true, passionate lover... Who is just helpless and wounded, coz her loved one has left her forever.. However hard she tries to conceal her tears, her pain, and all the memories... It all comes back to her!! But what this song means to celine, only she can tell... All i can say is, she made me cry!!! -anonymous
