Back To You

i’ve been down – i’ve been beat
i’ve been so tired – that i could not speak
i’ve bin so lost that i could not see
i wanted things that were out of reach
then i found you and you helped me through
and ya showed me what to do
that’s why i’m comin’ back to you…

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

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

Chorus

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

Can't Stop This Thing We Started

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

Chorus

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

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…

It's Only Love

Music (ASCAP)

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

(Everything I Do) I Do It For You

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

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

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

8
When You're Gone

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

She's Only Happy When She's Dancin'

Monday mornin’ – it’s time to get up
Two cups of coffee and she runs for the bus
Looks in the window and fixes her hair
Nobody notices and nobody cares

She admits it ain’t no kinda life
Workin’ 9 to 5 you know…

Chorus

She’s only happy when she’s dancin’
There ain’t no place she’d rather be
When she’s dancin’
Just her heart and her soul and her fantasies

When Friday evenin’ finally rolls around
She grabs a taxi and she heads uptown
Goes to a place they call “The Ball And Chain”
Nothin’ matters until Monday so she goes insane

Well its a bitch tryin’ to make ends meet
But that’s the way the story goes

Chorus

She’s only happy when she’s dancin’
There ain’t nothin’ makes her feel so free
When she’s dancin’
The girl’s outrageous and it’s plain to see

Solo

She ain’t got much but she got independence
Ya – she’s doin’ alright
His eyes are on her as the evenin’s endin’
But she ain’t goin’ for no mystery
Because nobody rides for free

Chorus

10
I'm Ready

i’d like to see you, thought i’d let you know
i wanna be with you everyday
cause i’ve got a feeling that’s beginning to grow
and there’s only one thing i wanna say

i’m ready – to love you
i’m ready – to hold you
i’m ready – i’m ready
ready as i’m gonna be

she left me a long note when she left me here
told me that love was hard to find
but baby it’s easy and i’ll make it clear
that there’s only one thing on my mind

i’m ready – to love you
i’m ready – to hold you
i’m ready – i’m ready
ready as i’m gonna be

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

12
If Ya Wanna Be Bad Ya Gotta Be Good/Let's Make A Night To Remember

She gotta nasty reputation and a talent for sin
She’s the kinda trouble – i like to be in
I wanna be her lover – i wanna be her slave
She’s the kinda woman makes me wanna misbehave
She said “i’ll give ya what you want boy – but lets make it understood
If ya wanna be bad – ya gotta be good”

She’s say’s “there’ll be no lyin’ – no foolin’ around
No seven day weekends – no nights on the town”
She said “that’s the way i want it – that’s the way it’s gotta be
If yer lookin’ for trouble – better get it from me
So get on your knees boy – and do what you should
If you wanna be bad you gotta be good”

Let’s make a night – to remember
From January – to December
Let’s make love – to excite us
A memory – to ignite us
Let’s make honey baby – soft and tender
Let’s make sugar darlin’ – sweet surrender
Let’s make a night – to remember – all life long

13
Dont Give Up

don’t worry if the sun don’t shine
you’ve seen it before you don’t have to worry
everyday’s an uphill climb – nothing has changed
believe me when i tell ya

don’t give it up – don’t give it up…

don’t give up – ya know it’s true
gotta do what you wanna do
don’t give up – you don’t have to
gotta do what you wanna do
don’t give up – ya know it’s true
gotta do what you wanna do

14
The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You

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…

15
Cloud Number Nine

clue number one was when you knocked on my door
clue number two was the look that you wore
n’ that’s when i knew, it was a pretty sign
that something was wrong up on cloud number nine

well it’s along way up and we won’t come down tonight
well it may be wrong but baby it sure feels right

and the moon is out and the stars are bright
and whatever comes s’gonna be alright
cause tonight you will be mine – up on cloud number nine
and there ain’t no place that i’d rather be
and we can’t go back but you’re here with me
yeah, the weather is really fine – up on cloud number nine

now he hurt you an you hurt me
and that wasn’t the way it was supposed to be
so baby tonight let’s leave the world behind
and spend some time up on cloud number nine

Chorus

well it’s along way up and we won’t come down tonight
well it may be wrong but baby it sure feels right

well we won’t come down tonight
ya we won’t come down tonight
no we won’t come down tonight
we can watch the world go by – up on cloud number nine…

16
Run To You

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

Chorus

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

Chorus

Chorus

Best Of Me

Written by Bryan Adams and Robert John ‘Mutt’ Lange 2000
Badams Music Limited/Zomba Enterprises Inc. (ASCAP)

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

18
Please Forgive Me

It still feels like our first night together
Feels like the first kiss and it’s gettin’ better baby
No one can better this
I’m still holdin’ on and you’re still the one
The first time our eyes met – it’s the same feelin’ i get
Only feels much stronger – i wanna love ya longer
You still turn the fire on…

So if you’re feelin’ lonely … don’t
You’re the only one I’d ever want
I only wanna make it good
So if I love ya a little more than i should…

Please forgive me – i know not what i do
Please forgive me – i can’t stop lovin’ you
don’t deny me – this pain i’m going through
Please forgive me – if i need ya like i do
Please believe me – every word i say is true
Please forgive me – i can’t stop lovin’ you

Still feels like our best times are together
Feels like the first touch
We’re still gettin’ closer baby
Can’t get close enough
I’m still holdin’ on – you’re still number one
I remember the smell of your skin
I remember everything
I remember all your moves – i remember you
I remember the nights – ya know i still do

So if you’re feeling lonely… don’t
You’re the only one i’d ever want
I only wanna make it good
So if I love ya a little more than i should

Please forgive me – i know not what i do
Please forgive me – i can’t stop lovin’ you
Don’t deny me – this pain i’m going through
Please forgive me – if i need ya like i do
Please believe me – every word i say is true
Please forgive me – i can’t stop lovin’ you

One thing i’m sure of – is the way we make love
And the one thing i depend on
Is for us to stay strong
With every word and every breath i’m prayin’
That’s why i’m sayin’…

Please forgive me – i know not what i do
Please forgive me – i can’t stop lovin’ you
Don’t deny me – this pain i’m going through
Please forgive me – if i need ya like i do
Never leave me – i don’t know what i’d do
Please forgive me – i can’t stop lovin’ you

19
Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?

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…

20
Into The Fire

Life – as thin as a thread
Sometimes you’re lucky
Sometimes you’re better off dead

Your first breath is taken and into the world you are cast
You long for tomorrow while living each day as your last

Well I know what your heart desires
But you can’t take it with you
Into the fire

Now you’ve done all you can
Your life’s at the crossroads
You watch as it slips through your hands

So you stand on the mountain and shout in vain at the sky
But nobody hears you – the words only echo inside

Oh shelter the flame – it may expire
Risin’ up from the ashes
Into the fire

Just hold onto your life down to the wire
Oh out from the dragon’s jaws
Into the fire

There’s a moment in every man’s life
When he must decide what is wrong and what’s right

You could wait for your dreams to come true
But time has no mercy
Time won’t stand still for you

Well I know what your heart desires
Crawlin’ out from the wreckage
Into the fire

Here I go…Into the fire
I know…what your heart desires

21
Before The Night Is Over

hey baby – i got someone n’ you got someone too
hey baby – i don’t know what we’re gonna do
how can something wrong feel so right
c’mon baby – hold on tight

before the night is over
we gonna get what we desire
remember what i told ya
this could set our hearts on fire

hey baby – we’re old enough to know that it’s a sin
hey baby – the door is open slide on in
this feels too good to be true
i’ll tell ya what i want to do

before the night is over
we gonna get what we desire
remember what i told ya
this could set our hearts on fire

i don’t wanna tell a lie
this is something we can’t hide
