Johnny came back to me,
on a rainy day in November
like something i'd forgotten,
and couldn't quite remember.

the apartment was freezing
and playing on the radio
an old tune out of season
about a Summer afternoon

look at me again Johnny,
look in my eyes ...
you fill my mind Johnny,
but i barely remember you.

when the clocks strikes 5, i have to go to work
it's just a job. make yourself at home
i hope you spend the night
i hate sleeping alone

some where over the rainbow
was that the song
you sang to me that night in New York
when you did that show

but you've come back to me,
on a rainy day in November
yes Johnny came back to me,
Johnny came back to me.
