Run To You (Live at Sydney Opera House)

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…

Back To You (Live At Sydney Opera House)

Written By Bryan Adams and Eliot Kennedy 1997 Published by Badams Music Limited and Sony Music Publishing UK Ltd.05:16 //

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…

Written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance 1978

i’d like to see you, thought i’d let you know

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

Let's Make A Night To Remember (Live At Sydney Opera House)

Written by Bryan Adams and Robert John ‘Mutt’ Lange 1995

I love the way ya look tonight
With your hair hangin’ down on your shoulders
I love the way ya dance that slow sweet tango
The way ya do everything but talk
And how ya stare at me with those undress me eyes
And your breath on my body makes me warm inside

Let’s make out – let’s do something amazing
Let’s do something that’s all the way
Cuz I’ve never touched somebody like the way I touch your body
Now I never want to let your body go…

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

I love the way ya move tonight
Beads of sweat drippin down your skin
Me lying here – you lyin’ there
Our shadows on the wall and our hands everywhere

Chorus

I think about ya all the time
Can’t you see you drive me outta my mind
Well I’m never holdin’ back again
Ya I never want this night to end
Cuz I’ve never touched somebody like the way I touch your body
Now I never want to let your body go…

Can't Stop This Thing We Started (Live At Sydney Opera)

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…

(Everything I Do) I Do It For You (Live At Sydney Opera)

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

Cuts Like A Knife (Live At Sydney Opera House)

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

Summer of 69 (Live at Sydney Opera House)

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…

Walk On By (Live at Sydney Opera House)

Written by Adams/Vallance ©2008

i heard that you’re leavin – this sleepy little town
the bright lights must have caught your eye cuz you ain’t hangin’ round
ya know people been talkin’ – they say you’re makin’ a mistake
gotta get on that greyhound and forget about what they say

just walk on by – walk on by
don’t look over your shoulder – keep your head up high
just walk on by

i’ve heard bad things about the city and i’m told that they’re true
better watch out for those guys out there they’re gonna hit on you
so don’t talk to no strangers – no it ain’t your style
don’t give up when the chips are down – just turn around and smile

just walk on by – walk on by
don’t look over your shoulder – keep your head up high
just walk on by – ya walk on

you’re old enough to know why – you’re old enough to know why

now you’re standing at the station – got a ticket in your hand
guess you got your mind made up – gotta get out while you can
don’t say i never told ya – now the rest is up to you
those streets can be like a battlefield – when it’s hard to make it thru…

just walk on by – walk on by
don’t look over your shoulder – keep your head up high
just walk on by

walk on by – walk on by
you’re a little bit lonely you’re a little bit shy
just walk on by

walk on by – walk on by
don’t look over your shoulder – keep your head up high
just walk on by

walk on by – walk on by
you’re a little bit lonely you’re a little bit shy
just walk on by

Heaven (Live at Sydney Opera House)

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

The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You (Live At Sydney Opera House)

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…

Somebody (Live at Sydney Opera House)

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

21
You've Been A Friend To Me (Live At Sydney Opera House)

if you say up – i say down
we’re the most unlikely pair
but up or down, high or low
you’ve always been right there

you’ve been a friend to me, a godsend to me
i ain’t too proud to say
you’ve been a friend to me

now if i’m feeling lowdown
or feeling ten feet tall
thick or thin, the shape i’m in
don’t matter to you at all

you’ve been a friend to me, a godsend to me
i ain’t too proud to say
you’ve been a friend to me

whenever I needed someone
you’re right there on the line
with a friend like you, to get me through
i’ll get by every time

whenever I needed someone
you’re right there on the line
with a friend like you, to get me through
i’ll get by every time

you’ve been a friend to me, a godsend to me
i ain’t too proud to say
you’ve been a friend to me

From Old Dogs

When You're Gone (Live At Sydney Opera House)

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

23
Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman? (Live At Sydney Opera House)

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…

24
I Still Miss You...A Little Bit (Live At Sydney Opera House)

adams / vallance ©2010

i still miss you…a little bit

you said you’d always keep me happy
you said that you would always be true
you said you’d always keep me warm at night
i didn’t know there’d be someone else there too

ya i still miss you…a little bit
don’t mind me i’ll get over
learn to live – live to love another day
i’ll be my old self in a week or two
until then i’ll be sad and blue
yes i admit i still miss you…a little bit

you said you’d always be my lover
you said you’d be with me til the end
you said we’d always be together
i wasn’t counting on you sleeping with my friends

25
Straight From The Heart (Live At 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
