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…

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

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

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

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

Kids Wanna Rock

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

Hearts On Fire

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

Take Me Back

I shoulda seen it coming
I shoulda seen the signs
Didn’t really think that she needs me
Must’ve bin blind

She didn’t give me a warning
Said I shouldn’t treat you wrong
But when I woke up this mornin’
She was gone gone gone

She said….
Take me back won’t ya
Take me back won’t ya
I’ll change my ways
Take me back won’t ya
Take me back won’t ya
I’m not the same

She didn’t tell me about it
Am I supposed to read your mind
You make me get up and shout it
It’s a crime crime crime

I shoulda seen it coming
I shoulda seen the signs
Didn’t really think that she needs me
Must’ve bin blind

She said….
Take me back won’t ya
Take me back won’t ya
I’ll change my ways
Take me back won’t ya
Take me back won’t ya
I’m not the same

Won’t ya take me back
Won’t ya take me back

The Best Was Yet To Come

Just a small town girl in the city lights
The best was yet to come
Then lonely days turned to endless nights
The best was yet to come

How were you to know
That you would be the lucky one
Ain’t it funny how time flies
When the best was yet to come

You can cry yourself to sleep at night
You can’t change the things you’ve done
You had it there then it slipped away
Yeah you left the song unsung

Even through your tears
I never saw you come undone
What’s so good about goodbye
When the best was yet to come

I find myself thinkin’ about yesterday
When you were here and livin’ in a dream
In the moment that it takes
You find you made your first mistake
Like the setting sun….
You turn around it’s gone

Just a small town girl who had it made
Or so the story goes
She had it there then it slipped away
Oh – how was she to know

Even through her tears
I never saw her come undone
Ain’t it funny how time flies
When the best was yet to come
What’s so good about goodbye
When the best was yet to come

Heaven

1983 Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance

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

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 covers up high and pray for the mornin’ light
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 you 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

10
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

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

11
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

12
Long Gone

The telephone’s bin ringin’
Ringin’ off the wall
It’s your Las Vegas lawyer
Another long distance call
He says you get the house and the car
And I get the clothes I got on

Now she’s gone
Long, long, long, long gone
Now I’m a happy boy
She’s long, long, long, long gone

Operator get me Manhattan
Get my baby on the line
Sooner or later she’s gotta realize
That all my feelin’s were for real
But maybe she was leadin’ me on

Chorus

She took the Frigidair
She got my favourite chair
You could say she got the best of me
It’s like a legal crime
But in a matter of time
She’ll be back for the rest of me

13
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…

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

15
Walking After Midnight

I go out walking, after midnight
Out in the moonlight
Just like we used to do
I’m always walking, after midnight
Searching for you

I walk for miles, along the highway
Well that’s just my way
Of saying I love you
I’m always walking after midnight
Searching for you

I stop to see a weeping willow
Crying on her pillow
Maybe she’s crying for me
And as the skies turn gloomy
Night winds whisper to me
I’m lonesome as I can be

I go out walking, after midnight
Out in the moonlight
Just hoping you may be
Somewhere a walking after midnight
Searching for me

16
I Fought The Law

Breakin rocks in the hot sun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won
I needed money cause I had none
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I left my baby and it feels so bad
Guess my race is run
She’s the best girl that I ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Robbin’ people with a six-gun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won
I lost my girl and I lost my fun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

17
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
