Meat Loaf & Marion Raven – It’s All Coming Back to Me Now

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 2:00 pm by LynxLee

This good song was written in 1983(the year I was born!) by Jim Steinman (a songwriter/friend of Meatloaf). As a matter of fact, we all know this song from the second version that was sang by Celine Dion. Yep, that was the second version. The first version was in a concept album’s song performed by Pandora’s Box(a band). Anyway, this third version gave a “opera” feel to it where you can feel the certain pain instead of the usual sad, mellow feel of Celine Dion’s(but I gotta admit, I like Celine’s version better.. more “beautiful”). This song has the spooky feel showing the “dark side of love”. You gotta love the songwriter, Jim Steinman. Heck, read about it if you like.. It’s All Coming Back to Me Now.

As a matter of fact, songs by Fire Inc. & Bonnie Tyler are also mostly written & produced by Jim Steinman. That explains the vibe we got with Bonnie Tyler – “Total Eclipse of the Heart” & Fire Inc. – “Tonight is What it Means to Be Young” & Air Supply – “Making Love Out Of Nothing At All”. You never heard of them? Haha.. no worries, they’ll be featured in this blog. No doubt! For now, enjoy your Meatloaf!

There were moments of gold and there were flashes of light
There were things I’d never do again but then they’d always seemed right
There were nights of endless pleasure
It was more than any laws allow

[Boy:] 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
[Girl:] 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 have ever made

But when you touch me like this (touch me like this)
And I hold you like that (hold you like that)
It’s so hard to believe but it’s all coming back to me now

It’s all coming back
It’s all coming back to me now

There were moments of gold and there were flashes of light
There were nights of endless pleasure
It was more than any laws allow
baby, baby!

If I kiss you like this (kiss you like this)
And if you whisper like that (whisper like that)
It was lost long ago but it’s all coming back to me

If you want me like this (if you want me like this)
And if you need me like that (if you need me like that)
It was dead long ago but it’s all coming back to me

It’s 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 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 (touch you like this)
And if you kiss me like that (kiss me like that)
It was gone with the wind but it’s all coming back to me now

It’s all coming back
It’s all coming back to me now

There were moments of gold and there were flashes of light
There were nights of endless pleasure
It was more than all your laws allow
baby, baby, baby!

When you touch me like this (touch me like this)
And when you hold me like that (hold me like that)
It was gone with the wind but it’s all coming back to me

When you see me like this (see me like this)
And when I see you like that (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 (forgive me all this)
If I forgive you all that (forgive you all that)
We forgive and forget and it’s all coming back to me now

[Girl:] It’s all coming back to me now
[Boy:] We forgive and forget
[Both:] And it’s all coming back to me now….

    Just been to the royal albert hall to see meatloaf, and he was amazing as ever. really did get goose bumps all over. but he said the song was origionaly written for bat out of hell 2, but they used ‘I would do any thing for love’ instead and said they wld use it for bat out of hell 3. but sadly in the mean time there was a couple of remakes.

  18. LynxLee said,

    Yeah.. I read about that.. Wikipedia.com (the link above) Haha.. But come on, ya gotta love “I would do anything for love”. I’d hate it if anyone remake or took that “gem song” as their original first. =)

  20. Kirsten said,

    I have let my 10 and 9 year olds (who are both into the same heavy metal/hard rock I am into) listen to this song and several other by MeatLoaf, they are both Hooked!!!! This song (agreeing with a previous comment) is PURE Passion, but MeatLoaf has always been good at Passion!!! No One will ever do this song as Perfect as this version!!!

  21. LynxLee said,

    My god.. I’m so glad there are so many Meat Loaf lovers.. I thought not much people heard of them. Haha.. Rock on, Meat Loaf!

  25. klip said,

    I read about Bat Out Of Hell III a few days ago, and was pleasantly surprised about this duet….it seemed good I thought then, and the video certainly proves it!
    Meatloaf certainly has not lost any of his intensity =)

  26. Dizz said,

    Dont you just love when the best come back. Dont stop Meatloaf we love ya & so does my 11 year old & 12 year old. They found my other bat out of hell discs with my collections & havent stopped playing them since. Then they found out about number 3 & they wouldnt stop asking, even thou I was gonna get it anyways.

  27. berki said,

    I love this song, its the best! I hope meatloaf does loads more songs like this. I just listened to the whole of the new album of bat out of hell 3 an its wicked! The others songs are wunderful too but this song is fabulas an definately the best of em all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Btw, this is originally meatloaf’s song but he fell out wi Jim Steinman the writer, so Jim sold it onto Celine Dion! So it ain’t a revival, its just out a little later than actually planned!
    Still the best song eva XD

  28. Karl said,

    Yeh, this song was always planned to be on a future album and was originally Loaf’s work of art … which you can tell, cos this is soooo much better than the Celine Dion version.

  29. Inge from Holland said,

    this song is really amazing… when I heard it for the first time I just fell in love with the two voices. They fit perfectly with each other.
    I didn’t like the song from Celine Dion and I love the song now.
    Meat Loaf, keep up the good work!!!

  30. alex said,

    i recon its a lovely song and it is a great video and its peaceful and relaxing.

  31. Elisabeth said,

    Thank you, Meat Loaf, for this very very beautiful song. When I was a very young girl, I loved to listen to Meat Loaf. I was to a Meat Loaf concert in Copenhagen in 1983. I never stoped listen to Meat Loaf, so I was happy to hear that about the new album. This song i one of the very best….I have let my 11 and 15 years old daugthers listen to this video – they were both impressed!

  32. x Bethan x said,

  35. sam said,

    i love this song and i love meatloaf and i have listened to his musice for as long as i can remember and i will never stop loving him and his music

  36. Mei said,

    aw … fell in love instantly with this song when i 1st heard it in American-Idol finale.

    isn’t the original singer Meat Loaf? then Celine D, then Meat Loaf again? just curious.

  37. LynxLee said,

    According to Wikipedia.org; this song is written by Jim Steinman in 1983 for Meat Loaf at 1986; but Steinman and Meat Loaf decided to use “I’d Do Anything for Love (but I Won’t Do That)” for the latter album, and save this song for Bat III.

    It was given to Pandora’s Box first for a Concept Album that will then later be recorded by other artists, particularly Meat Loaf. Steinman subsequently gave the song to Céline Dion for her album Falling into You, which upset Meat Loaf because he was going to use it for a planned album with the working title Bat Out Of Hell III.

    Then, this song is finally born!

  38. Mei said,

    yeah i thot i have heard this song before (not the Celine version).

    this version somehow gave the song a whole new different feel and life.

  39. Andrew said,

    Wow, meat Loaf took a song that essentially sucked ass with Celine Dion and made it into something amazing. This is how the sound SHOULD have been recorded. I always thought that song sounded like something Meat Loaf should sing….SO glad he did.

  40. shane said,

    Then we see what we want to see
    all coming back to me

    Sorry to break up the love-fest here, but….

    I just listened to this version for the first time, and I have to say Meatloaf’s voice sounded weak. I really don’t like Celine Dion, but in her version, her voice is so much more powerfull. I was expecting something similar – like all his other songs.

    I’m a fan of Meatloaf, but I think he could have given a better performance here.

  46. Kirsty said,

    wel im not a fan of meat loaf but i think dis is one of da best songs ever i just love it so much!!

  47. frenchguy said,

    Wake up guys! Meatloaf is good but what about Marion Raven or something. She is an extremely good singer and she’s really hot!!!

  48. Rooneyboy said,

    Have you ever seen the girl? She just make me wanna dance. Her body is just amazing and her voice is even better! Boy she’s sexy!

  49. Jannike said,

    i just have to say that this is a wonderfull song! I love to hear thoose people sing together! they are both good singers!!

  50. Jennifer said,


  51. Taylor said,

    that song is the best love song ever…. can’t believe it’s from bat outta hell 3, and marion raven’s voice is so freakin amazin… i think i’ll cover that song when im famous, but i guarantee you theirs will be better if i ever sang that song with a guy.

  52. donaldson_dancer said,

  53. xxBobby Leighxx said,

  54. Mike L. said,

    According to rankopedia.com, the best song ever is Stairway to Heaven by Led Zep.

  55. Christy said,
