home: mariah carey ยป mariah carey - the roof

Testo the roof - mariah carey

It wasn't raining yet

but it was definately getting 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

(And I was twisted)

My apprehension blew away

I only wanted you

to taste my sadness

as you kissed me in the dark



Chorus:

Every time I feel the need

I envision you caressing me

and go back in time

to relive the splendor of you and I

on the rooftop that rainy night



And so we finished the Moet and

I 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 the feelings surfaced I'd surpressed

for such a long time

(And I was lifted)

And for awhile I forgot

the sorrow and the pain

and melted with you as we stood

there in the rain



Chorus (2x)



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

(Envision you caressing me)

and go back in time

(I go back)

to relive the splendor of you and I

on the rooftop that rainy night

(on the roof that rainy night)



Every time I feel the need

(When I feel the need)

I envision you caressing me

(I envision you over and over and over again)

and go back in time

to relive the splendor of you and I

(It was oh so sweet
you and I)

on the rooftop that rainy night

(on that rainy night)



Every time I feel the need

(Last night I had the strangest dream ... )

I envision you caressing me

(It was actually quite symbolic)

and I go back in time

(As I whispered ... that I loved you)

to relive the splendor of you and I

( ... very subtly)
