The Roof

Album: Butterfly (1997)
Charted: 96
  • 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 Writer/s: ALBERT JOHNSON, JEAN CLAUDE OLIVIER, KEJUAN WALIEK MUCHITA, MARIAH CAREY, MARK ROONEY, SAMUEL J. BARNES
