  • I had to escape , the city was sticky and cruel
    Maybe I should have called you first
    But I was dying to get to you

    I was dreaming while I drove
    The long straight road ahead
    Uh-huh, yeah

    Could taste your sweet kisses, your arms open wide
    This fever for you was just burning me up inside

    I drove all night to get to you
    Is that all right?
    I drove all night, crept in your room
    Woke you from your sleep to make love to you
    Is that all right?
    I drove all night

    What in this world keeps us from falling apart?
    No matter where I go
    I hear the beating of our one heart
    I think about you when the night is cold and dark
    Uh-huh, yeah

    No one can move me the way that you do
    Nothing erases this feeling between me and you
    I drove all night to get to you
    Is that all right?

    I drove all night, crept in your room
    Woke you from your sleep to make love to you
    Is that all right?
    I drove all night

    Could taste your sweet kisses, your arms open wide
    This fever for you was just burning me up inside

    I drove all night to get to you
    Is that all right?
    I drove all night, crept in your room
    Is that all right?

  • Jeffrey from AustraliaI saw music video and immediately fell in love with the song. The music video was awesome seeing young Jason Priestley looking like James Dean and seeing Jennifer Connelly being his lover was great to watch and sing the song.
  • Malcolm Podmore from West Midlands, United KingdomLove the way the drums seem to drive it along-Fantastic
  • Vic from City Of Angels, --beautiful song, brings back memories and tears.
  • Karen from Manalapan, NjI always loved Cyndi Lauper's version of this song, but Roy's is great too.
  • Eric from Cincinnati, OhThe music video starred TV actor Jason Priestley (Beverly Hills 90210, Tru Calling) driving a car to see his woman, played by film actress Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind, Hulk).
    The video is nothing fancy -- just alternating cuts of Roy singing, Jason driving a car at night, and Jennifer -- but the nostalgia value of Roy Orbison singing "post mortem" makes it enjoyable and memorable.
