Remember

1978 Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance

pardon me – have you got the time to let me say hello?
i couldn’t help but see
you look like a lady i used to know a long time ago

remember the time we spent together
remember the days that went forever
remember the nights we stayed together
whatever i do i’ll still remember

it’s hard to believe
that i held her up and then she let me down
it’s all the same to me
but she broke my heart and left me spinnin’ round and round and round

Lonely Nights

1981 Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance

Will you risk your reputation? – I dont know
You just dont know what youre sayin anymore.
You know beggers cant be chosers – and thats fair.
When we win we may be losers,
I dont care, no no no.

Baby, I just cant stand another lonely night,
So come over and save me
Save me from another lonely night

I hear every word youre sayin – they’re all lies.
But with every breath youre takin’
Youre thinkin’ of ways to say good night

Straight From The Heart

I could start dreamin but it never ends
As long as youre gone we may as well pretend
Ive been dreamin
Straight from the heart

You say its easy but whos to say
That wed be able to keep it this way
But its easier
Straight from the heart

Give it to me straight from the heart
Tell me we can make another start
You know Ill never go
As long as I know
Its comin straight from the heart

Ill see you on the street some other time
And all our words would just fall out of line
I was dreamin
Straight from the heart

Give it to me straight from the heart
Tell me we can make another start
You know Ill never go
As long as I know
Its coming straight from the heart

Give it to me straight from the heart
Tell me we can make one more start
You know Ill never go
As long as I know
Its coming straight from the heart

Cuts Like A Knife

Drivin home this evening
I coulda sworn we had it all worked out
You had this boy believin’
Way beyond the shadow of a doubt

Then I heard it on the street
I heard you mighta found somebody new
Well who is he baby – who is he
And tell me what he means to you

I took it all for granted
But how was I to know
That youd be letting go

Now it cuts like a knife
But it feels so right
It cuts like a knife
But it feels so right

There’s times I’ve bin mistaken
There’s times I thought I’d bin misunderstood
So wait a minute darlin’
Can’t you see we did the best we could

This wouldn’t be the first time
Things have gone astray
Now youve thrown it all away

Now it cuts like a knife
But it feels so right
It cuts like a knife
But it feels so right

This Time

I think about her all the time
Shes my fantasy
An image burnin in my mind
Callin out to me

While my imaginations runnin wild
Yeah – things are getting clearer

This time everything is alright
No way shes gonna get away
This time everything is easy
Any day – Im gonna make her mine

Ive thought of every word Id say
Give or take a few
But she turns and slowly walks away
What do I have to do

Hey – turn up your radio
Oh – theres somethin I want you to know

This time everything is alright
No way shes gonna get away
This time everything is easy
Any day – Im gonna make her mine

Well its hard to take cause shes miles away
And Ive waited a long time
But the feelins right and darlin one of these nights
Yeah – Im gonna let you know

This time everything is alright
No way shes gonna get away
This time everything is easy
Any day – Im gonna make her mine

Run To You

1984 Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance

She says her love for me could never die
But that’d change if she ever found out about you and I
Oh – but her love is cold
It wouldn’t hurt her if she didn’t know
And when it gets too much
I need to feel your touch

I’m gonna run to you
I’m gonna run to you
Cause when the feelin’s right I’m gonna run all night
I’m gonna run to you

She’s got a heart of gold she’d never let me down
But you’re the one that always turns me on
You keep me comin’ ’round
I know her love is true
But it’s so damn easy makin’ love to you
I got my mind made up
I need to feel your touch

I’m gonna run to you
I’m gonna run to you
Ya when the feelin’s right I’m gonna stay all night
I’m gonna run to you

7
Somebody

I’ve bin lookin’ for someone
Between the fire and the flame
We’re all lookin’ for somethin’ – to ease the pain
Now who can you turn to
When it’s all black and white
And the winners are losers – you see it every night

I need somebody – somebody like you
Everybody needs somebody
I need somebody – hey what about you
Everybody needs somebody

When you’re out on the front line
And you’re watchin’ them fall
It doesn’t take long to realize – It ain’t worth fightin’ for

I thought I saw the Madonna
When you walked in the room
Well your eyes were like diamonds
And they cut right through – oh they cut right through

Chorus

Another night another lesson learned
It’s the distance keeps us sane
But when the silence leads to sorrow
We do it all again – all again

8
Heaven

Written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance 1983

Oh – thinkin’ about all our younger years
There was only you and me
We were young and wild and free
Now nothin’ can take you away from me
We’ve been down that road before
But that’s over now
You keep me comin’ back for more

Baby you’re all that I want
When you’re lyin’ here in my arms
I’m findin’ it hard to believe
We’re in heaven
And love is all that I need
And I found it here in your heart
It isn’t too hard to see
We’re in heaven

Oh – once in your life you find someone
Who will turn your world around
Bring you up when you’re feelin’ down
Ya-nothin’ could change what you mean to me
Oh there’s lots that I could say
But just hold me now
Cause our love will light the way

Chorus

I’ve been waitin’ for so long
For somethin’ to arrive
For love to come along
Now our dreams are comin’ true
Through the good times and the bad
Ya – I’ll be standin’ there by you

Summer Of '69

I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it til my fingers bled
It was the summer of ’69

Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit and Jody got married
I shoulda known we’d never get far

Oh when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Ya – I’d always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

Ain’t no use in complainin’
When you got a job to do
Spent my evenin’s down at the drive-in
And that’s when I met you

Standin’ on your Mama’s porch
You told me that you’d wait forever
Oh and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life
Back in the summer of ’69

Man we were killin’ time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothin’ can last forever – forever, no

And now the times are changin’
Look at everything that’s come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
I think about ya wonder what went wrong

Standin’ on your Mama’s porch
You told me it would last forever
Oh the way you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life
Back in the summer of ’69
Me and my baby in a ’69…

One Night Love Affair

You’re the silent type
And you caught my eye
But I never thought that I’d be touchin’ you
How was I to know
I’d let my feelin’s go
And that I’d be yours before the night was through

One night love affair
Tryin’ to make like we don’t care
We were both reachin’ out for somethin’
One night love affair
Pretendin’ it ain’t there
Oh – and now we’re left with nothin’

When the mornin’ breaks
We go our separate ways
If the night was made for love it ain’t for keeps
But I lose control
As I watch you go
All my senses say I’m in this much too deep
Now you’re outta reach

11
It's Only Love

When the feelin’ is ended
There ain’t no use pretendin’
Don’t ya worry – it’s only love

When your world has been shattered
Ain’t nothin’ else matters
It ain’t over – it’s only love
And that’s all – ya

When your heart has been broken
Hard words have been spoken
It ain’t easy – but it’s only love

And if your life ain’t worth livin’
And you’re ready to give in
Just remember – that it’s only love

You can live without the aggravation
Ya gotta wanna win – ya gotta wanna win

You keep lookin’ back in desperation
Over and over and over again

When your world is shattered
Ain’t nothin’ else matters
It ain’t over – it’s only love

If your life ain’t worth livin’
And you’re ready to give in
Just remember – that it’s only love
Ya – that’s all
Ya it ain’t easy baby
But it’s only love – and that’s all

12
Heat Of The Night

i was caught in the crossfire of a silent scream
where one man’s nightmare is another man’s dream
pull the cover up high – and pray for the mornin’ light
cause you’re livin’ alone – in the heat of the night

met a man with a message from the other side
couldn’t take the pressure – had to leave it behind
he said it’s up to you
you can run or you can fight (ya that’s right)
better leave it alone – in the heat of the night

in the heat of the night they’ll be comin’ around
they’ll be lookin’ for answers they’ll be chasin’ you down
in the heat of the night
(where ya gonna hide when it all comes down)
(don’t look back don’t ever turn around)

had to pay the piper to call the tune
said he’d be back someday – said he’d be back real soon
pull the shades down low – you’ll know when the time is right
when you’re lyin’ alone in the heat of the night

13
Hearts On Fire

Written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance 1987

Some other time
Some other place
We might not of bin here
Standin’ face to face

I just wanna tell ya
Made up my mind
You know I can’t help the way I feel inside

Oh this heart’s on fire
Right from the start it’s bin burnin’ for you
Oh this heart’s on fire
One thing honey – this heart’s true

The streets are empty
The lights are down
Ain’t nothin’ movin’
This side of town

So come on over
I ain’t hard to please
Oh baby – what you get ain’t always what you need

Oh this heart’s on fire
It’s getting hotter now can’t you see
Oh this heart’s on fire
From now on babe it’s gonna be you and me

Risin’ to my feet I can feel the heat
It’s tryin’ to pull me under
Runnin’ through the night I can make it right
Its comin’ on like thunder

Some got it good some got it bad
But you’re the best I ever had
I never worry you’re so fine
From now on babe I’m gonna be by your side

14
(Everything I Do) I Do It For You

Written by Bryan Adams, Robert John ‘Mutt’ Lange and Michael Kamen 1991

Look into my eyes – you will see
What you mean to me
Search your heart – search your soul
And when you find me there you’ll search no more
Don’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for
You can’t tell me it’s not worth dyin’ for
You know it’s true
Everything I do – I do it for you

Look into my heart – you will find
There’s nothin’ there to hide
Take me as I am – take my life
I would give it ALL – I would sacrifice
Don’t tell me it’s not worth fightin’ for
I can’t help it there’s nothin’ I want more
Ya know it’s true
Everything I do – I do it for you

There’s no love – like your love
And no other – could give more love
There’s nowhere – unless you’re there
All the time – all the way

Don’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for
I can’t help it there’s nothin’ I want more
I would fight for you – I’d lie for you
Walk the wire for you – Ya I’d die for you

Ya know it’s true
Everything I do – I do it for you

15
Can't Stop This Thing We Started

Written by Bryan Adams, Robert John “Mutt” Lange 1991

You might stop a hurricane
Might even stop the drivin’ rain
You might have a dozen other guys
But if you wanna stop me baby – don’t even try
I’m goin’ one way – your way
It’s such a strong way – let’s make it our way

Can’t stop this thing we started
You gotta know it’s right
Can’t stop this course we’ve plotted
This thing called love we got it
No place for the brokenhearted
Can’t stop this thing we started – no way
I’m goin’ your way!

You might stop the world spinnin’ round
Might even walk on holy ground
I ain’t Superman and I can’t fly
But if you wanna stop me baby – don’t even try
I’m goin’ one way – your way
It’s such a strong way – let’s make it our way

Chorus

Oh – why take it slow – I gotta know
Nothing can stop this thing that we got

16
There Will Never Be Another Tonight

Put on your best dress darling
Can’t you see the time is right
There will never be another tonight

If you got your motor runnin’
Then I got my engines on
Say the word and darlin’ we’ll be gone
Outside the world is waitin’
But we won’t lose control
So come on now – let the good times roll

You gotta ride your broom right into my room
Kick off your shoes make your self at home
Wave your little wand – weave a little spell
Make a little magic – raise some hell
There will never be another tonight
C’mon baby – hold on tight
There will never be another tonight

I don’t care if it’s wrong or right
We got nothin’ to lose just me and you
In your wildest dreams…
There’ll never be another tonight

Who cares about tomorrow
Let the wind fill your sails
A runaway train ridin’ on the rails
We got the bases loaded
Home run – power play
Tonight’s the night we’re goin’ all the way

Flash your diamonds shine your lights
There’ll never be another tonight
I don’t care if it’s wrong or right
Cause we got nothin’ to lose just me and you
In your wildest dreams…
There’ll never be another tonight

Some people they’re looking for paradise
Others they’re looking for inner light
Me I’m just having the time of my life
I’m headin’ out, to check it out
Check it out…

17
Thought I'd Died And Gone To Heaven

Love is forever – as I lie awake beside you
I believed – there’s no heaven
No hideaway for the lonely
But I was wrong – crazy
It’s gotta be strong – It’s gotta be right

Only wanted to stay awhile
Only wanted to play awhile
Then you taught me to fly like a bird

Thought I’d Died And Gone To Heaven
Never thought that it could feel this way
Thought I’d Died And Gone To Heaven
Cuz what I got there ain’t no cure for

Ooo It’s so easy – what you do to me
All night angel
I never loved – swear to God
Til You came along I never felt this strong

Here I come baby
It’s gotta be strong – it’s gotta be right
Only wanted to stay awhile, Only wanted to play awhile
Then you taught me to fly like a bird

The Best Of Me

Written by Bryan Adams and Robert John ‘Mutt’ Lange 2000

sometimes words are hard to find
i’m looking for that perfect line
to let you know you’re always on my mind
ya this is love – n’ i’ve learned enough to know
i’m never lettin’ go
no, no, no – won’t let go

when you want it – when you need it
you’ll always have the best of me
i can’t help it – believe it
you’ll always get the best of me

i may not always know what’s right
but i know i want you here tonight
gonna make this moment last for all your life
oh ya this is love – n’ it really means so much
i can tell from every touch
no, no, no – can’t get enough
