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

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

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
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

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

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

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…

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

It's Only Love

1984 Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance

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

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

10
Ain't Gonna Cry

Well I hardly knew ya baby
And you were comin’ on
Mama told me there’d be days like these
I shoulda known better maybe
Woulda seen right through ya
I needed you like a disease

I ain’t gonna cry over you
You’re a mystery
I ain’t gonna cry over you
You’re history – history

You said you’d wait forever
But I know your type
The lights are on but on-one’s home
I changed my number maybe
You better change your mind
Cause I’d rather spend the night alone

Chorus

I ain’t your kinda guy
So forget about me
Cause I ain’t too shy to say what I’m thinkin’ – hit it
I got reckless baby
Put you in your place
Next time maybe re-arrange your face

Diana - bonus track

The first time I saw you – was in a magazine
The next time was you was walkin cross my television screen
I knew right there that I had to make you mine
The day that you married him – I nearly lost my mind

Diana – What cha doin with a guy like him
Diana – Id die for you please let me in
Diana – Cant you see you drive me wild
Diana – Ill bet youre just a reckless child!

So youve got it made;
Ive seen you promenade a time or two
He might have lots of dough;
But I know he aint right for you
Well Ive watched you smile n shakin hands;
When youre doin your social scene
But you wouldnt have to do that;
If you came and lived with me – oh yeah!

Diana – I just cant get you off of my mind
Diana – Why dont ya leave it all behind?
Diana – Shes the queen of all my dreams
Diana – Give me a chance – Ill set ya free!

Since I saw that picture of ya;
Nothin matters – I just wanna love ya;
We can make it you and me;
So come on baby – come on baby

So heres how I see it…
You got one choice – you can get away;
Leave it up to me;
Ill bring the ladder – if you bring your limousine!

You really got a hold on me
Gimme a chance – Ill set you free!

Reggae Christmas - bonus track

Every year I get the same fear – Christmas come I wanna pack my bag and flee
I wanna get away from New York – wanna find a better place to be (Paris!)

So we’re having a reggae Christmas (down in Jamaica)
Having a good time too
Hey mon – we’re having a reggae Christmas
Merry Christmas and a reggae new year to you

Christmas is nice in Germany
…if ya like being up to your knees in snow (oh no!)
It’s just as cold up in Canada – got to find a better place to go

It’s a long way down to Kingston town
But I’ll get there someday I know
Gonna meet my friends down in Kingston, Jamaica
Cuz the good times gonna roll – ya those good times gonna roll!
