Summer Of '69

Written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance 1984

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…

(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

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

When You're Gone

1998 Bryan Adams and Eliot Kennedy

i’ve been wandering around the house all night
wondering what the hell to do
i’m trying to concentrate but all i can think of is you
well the phone don’t ring cuz my friends ain’t home
i’m tired of being all alone
got the tv on cuz the radios’ playing songs that remind me of you

baby when you’re gone – i realize i’m in love
the days go on and on – and the nights just seem so long
even food don’t taste that good – drink ain’t doing what it should
things just feel so wrong – baby when you’re gone

i keep driving up and down these streets
trying to find somewhere to go
ya i’m lookin’ for a familar face but there’s no one i know
this is torture – this is pain – it feels like i’m gonna go insane
hope you’re coming back real soon – cuz i don’t know what to do

All For Love (Live From the Royal Albert Hall, 2012)

Written by Bryan Adams, Robert John ‘Mutt’ Lange and Michael Kamen 1993

When it’s love you give (I’ll be a man of good faith)
then in love you live (I’ll make a stand. I won’t break)
I’ll be the rock you can build on
be there when you’re old
to have and to hold

When there’s love inside (I swear I’ll always be strong)
then there’s a reason why (I’ll prove to you we belong)
I’ll be the wall that protects you
from the wind and the rain,
from the hurt and pain.

Let’s make it all for one and all for love
Let the one you hold be the one you want
the one you need
’cause when it’s all for one it’s one for all
When there’s someone that you know
then just let your feelings show
and make it all for one and all for love

When it’s love you make (I’ll be the fire in your night)
then it’s love you take (I will defend, I will fight)
I’ll be there when you need me.
When honor’s at stake,
this vow I will make.

(note: recorded for the film The Three Musketeers with Rod Stewart and Sting)

Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?

Written by Bryan Adams, Robert John ‘Mutt” Lange and Michael Kamen – Badams Music Ltd/Zomba Enterprises Inc (ascap )k-Man Corp./New Line Music Co/Sony Songs Inc (BMI)

To really love a woman
To understand her – you gotta know her deep inside
Hear every thought – see every dream
N’ give her wings when she wants to fly
Then when you find yourself lyin’ helpless in her arms
Ya know ya really love a woman

When you love a woman you tell her that she’s really wanted
When you love a woman you tell her that she’s the one
Cuz she needs somebody to tell her that it’s gonna last forever
So tell me have you ever really – really really ever loved a woman?

To really love a woman
Let her hold you – til ya know how she needs to be touched
You’ve gotta breathe her – really taste her
Til you can feel her in your blood
N’ when you can see your unborn children in her eyes
Ya know ya really love a woman

Chorus

You got to give her some faith – hold her tight
A little tenderness – gotta treat her right
She will be there for you, takin’ good care of you
Ya really gotta love your woman…

Run To You

Written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance 1984 Published by Adams Communications inc. / Testatyme Music Corp. / Rondor Music05:07

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, ’cause…
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…

House Arrest (Live from the Montreal Forum)

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

Well there’s gonna be a party gonna make some noise
Yeah we’re invitin’ all the girls – invitin’ all the boys
There’ll be dancin’ on the tables dancin’ on the chairs
Ya there’ll be dancin’ in the parkin’ lots
And up and down the stairs-alright
Close the windows – lock the doors
Turn it up now – pack the floors
Cops are on the outside – landlord’s on the phone
Quick turn out all the lights
Pretend there ain’t nobody home

It’s a house arrest – everybody run
I gotta plead guilty havin’ – too much fun
This is a house arrest – up against the wall
We can’t stop rockin’ justa havin’ a ball – One and all

Won’t you come around to my place
Don’t cha know it’s overdue
You gotta bring your little lady wear your dancin’ shoes
Get a Yellow Taxi – take a limousine
You gotta get there – it’s gonna be a scene
It’s too late can’t wait – get out while you can
It was fun while it lasted let’s do it all again

Chorus

We bin wakin’ up the neighbours
Bouncin’ off the walls
Hangin’ off the ceilings
We’ll be dancin’ in and out of the halls!

The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You

Published by Badams Music Ltd. / Zomba Music International
Written by Bryan Adams And Robert John ‘Mutt’ Lange ©1995

I don’t look good in no Armani Suits
No Gucci shoes – or designer boots
I’ve tried the latest lines from A to Z
But there’s just one thing that looks good on me

The only thing I want
The only thing I need
The only thing I choose
The only thing that looks good on me…is you

I’m not satisfied with Versace style
Put those patent leather pants – in the circular file
Sometimes I think – I might be lookin’ good
But there’s only one thing that fits me like it should

Chorus

Ya it’s you – it could only be you
Nobody else will ever do
Ya baby it’s you – that I stick to
Ya we stick like glue…

Can't Stop This Thing We Started

Written by Bryan Adams and 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…

When You Love Someone (Previously Unreleased Version)

Written by Bryan Adams, Gretchen Peters and Michael Kamen 1997

when you love someone – you’ll do anything
you’ll do all the crazy things that you can’t explain
you’ll shoot the moon – put out the sun
when you love someone

you’ll deny the truth – believe a lie
there’ll be times that you’ll believe you can really fly
but your lonely nights – have just begun
when you love someone

when you love someone – you’ll feel it deep inside
and nothin else can ever change your mind
when you want someone – when you need someone
when you need someone…

when you love someone – you’ll sacrifice
you’d give it everything you got and you won’t think twice
you’d risk it all – no matter what may come
when you love someone
you’ll shoot the moon – put out the sun
when you love someone

Cuts Like A Knife

Written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance 1983

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

The 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 you’d 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 tines I thought I’d ‘bin misunderstood
So wait a minute darlin’
Can’t you see we did the best we could

This would be the first time
Things have gone astray
Now you’ve 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

Straight From The Heart (Live at the Sydney Opera House)

Written by Bryan Adams and Eric Kagna 1978

I could start dreamin’ but it never ends
As long as you’re gone we may as well pretend
I’ve been dreamin’
Straight from the heart

You say it’s easy but who’s to say
That we’d be able to keep it this way
But it’s easier
Straight from the heart

Give it to me straight from the heart
Tell me we can make another start
You know I’ll never go
As long as I know
It’s coming straight from the heart

I’ll see you on the street some other time
And all our words would just fall out of line
Cuz I’m dreamin’ – straight from the heart

Give it to me straight from the heart
Tell me we can make another start
You know I’ll never go
As long as I know
It’s coming straight from the heart

i’ve been down – i’ve been beat
i’ve been so tired – that i could not speak

like a star that guides a ship across the ocean
that’s how your love can take me home back to you
and if i wish upon that star – that someday i’ll be where you are
i know that day is comin soon – ya i’m comin back to you

you’ve been alone but ya did not show it
you’ve been in pain when i did not know it
you let me do what i needed to – you were there when i needed you
mighta let you down – mighta messed you round
but ya never changed your point of view
that’s why i’m comin’ back to you…

18 Til I Die

Written by Bryan Adams and Robert John ‘Mutt” Lange – Badams Music Ltd / Zomba Enterprises Inc (ascap)

Wanna be young – the rest of my life
Never say no – try anything twice
Til the angels come – and ask me to fly
Gonna be 18 til I die – 18 til I die
Can’t live forever – that’s wishful thinkin’
Who ever said that – must of bin’ drinkin’
Don’t wanna grow up – I don’t see why
I couldn’t care less if time flies by

18 til I die – gonna be 18 til I die
Ya it sure feels good to be alive
Someday I’ll be 18 goin’ on 55! – 18 til I die

Anyway – I just wanna say
Why bother with what happened yesterday
That’s not my style – I live for the minute
If ya wanna stay young – get both feet in it – 18 til I die
A ‘lil bit of this – a ‘lil bit of that
‘Lil bit of everything – get ya right on track
It’s not how ya look, it’s what ya feel inside
Don’t care how – don’t need ta know why

Chorus

Don’t worry ’bout the future
Forget about the past
Gonna have a ball – ya gonna have a blast
Gonna make it last

Heat Of The Night

Written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance 1987

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

It's Only Love (with Tina Turner)

Written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance 1984 Published by Adams Communications inc. / Testatyme Music Corp. / Rondor Music05:07

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

This Time

1983 Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance

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

Kids Wanna Rock

Written by: Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance 1984 Published by adams communications inc. / Testatyme Music Corp. / Rondor Music04:49

Turned on the radio
Sounded like a disco
Musta turned the dial for a couple of miles
But I couldn’t find no rock ‘n roll

This computerized crap ain’t gettin’ me off
Everywhere I go the kids wanna rock

London to L.A.
Talkin’ ’bout the new wave
For a couple of bucks you get a weird haircut
And waste your life away

Around the world or around the block
Everywhere I go the kids wanna rock

Get me my D.J.
I got somethin’ he’s gotta play
Wanna hear it I can’t wait
So turn it up, turn it up…

Kick down the barricades
Listen to what the kids say
From time to time people change their minds
But the music is here to stay

I’ve seen it all from the bottom to the top
Everywhere I go kids wanna rock

Around the world or around the block
Everywhere I go the kids wanna rock
Everywhere I go the kids wanna rock

Somebody

1984 Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance

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

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

One Night Love Affair

1984 Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance

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

32
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

33
There Will Never Be Another Tonight

Written by Bryan Adams, Jim Vallance and Robert John

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…

Rock Steady (Unreleased Demo)

Written by Bryan Adams and Gretchen Peters ©1995

ya need a man that’ll treat ya like the woman you are
those ‘lil boys are just playin around with your heart
whatcha gonna do when you’re all alone
you need a rock not a rollin stone

so when a boy – just ain’t enough
and you wanna man made of stronger stuff
get ready

rock steady all night long
rock steady til the light of dawn
slow and easy – tried and true
rock steady just me and you

ya need somebody that can help you with your heavy load
i’ve bin there baby and love can be a rocky road
well i can bend but i won’t break
you ain’t got what i can’t take

so when you’re tired – of ‘lil girls
and you wanna woman to rock your world
get ready

rock steady all night long
rock steady til the light of dawn
slow and easy – tried and true
rock steady just me and you

amateurs and dilettantes
they can’t give you what you really want
when all the others have been untrue
i’ll give ya somethin you can hold on to

All I Want Is You

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

Don’t want diamonds don’t want gold
Don’t want fashion don’t wanna be cool
Don’t wanna hustle just to get thru
When it all comes down babe
All I want is you

Don’t wanna argue don’t wanna fight
Don’t want no politics babe all thru the night
I told ya before – gonna tell ya once more
For the last time baby open up your door

All I want is you all I want is you
Not any old girl will do
All I want is you
If ya don’t need love ya gotta be nuts
The heaviest metal always rusts
Just you and me babe hangin’ tough
It’s gotta be it’s gotta be it’s gotta be love or bust

Don’t need a doctor don’t need a nurse
Don’t need a prescription babe
Only make me feel worse
Don’t need a license don’t need insurance
Don’t need a ticket where we’re goin’ babe
You got my assurance ya
I told ya before – gonna tell ya once more
For the last time baby open up your door
