all Bryan Adams lyrics



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 it's 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

She's only happy when she's dancin'
Dancin' - there ain't no place she'd rather be
When she's dancin'
Just her heart and her soul and her fantasies - dancin'back to top
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 allback to top
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

Then 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 times I thought I'd 'bin misunderstood
So wait a minute darlin'
Can't you see we did the best we could

This wouldn't 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 rightback to top
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 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 the kids wanna rock

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

Everywhere I go the kids wanna rockback to top
Hearts on Fire
Some other time
Some other place
We might not 've '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
Ainít 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 gettin' 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 we can make it right
It's 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 sideback to top
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 backback to top
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 is 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 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
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 is yet to come
What's so good about goodbye
When the best was yet to comeback to top
Heaven
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 there 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 bin 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 youback to top
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
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 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 nightback to top
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

I'm gonna run to you
Ya - I'm gonna run to you
Cause when the feelin's right I'm gonna stay all night

I'm gonna run to you
Ya - I'm gonna run to you
Oh when the feelin's right I'm gonna run all night
I'm gonna run to youback to top
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 outa reach

One night love affair
Tryin' to make like we don't care
We were both reachin' out for somethin'

One night love affair
Pretendin' we don't care
Oh - and now we're left with nothin'

[Solo]

One night love affair
Trying' to make like we don't care
We were both reachin' out for somethin'

One night love affair
Sometimes life ain't fair
Oh - and not we're left with nothin'back to top
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 Manhatten - 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 frigidaire
She got my favorite 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 meback to top
Summer of '69
Bryan Adams -




I got ma first real 6 string
Bought it at the farthan dime
Played it 'till ma fingers bled
Was the summer of 69
Me an some guys from school
Had a band an we tried real hard
Jimmy quit Joey got married
Should av known we'd never get far
Oh wen a look back now
The summer seemed ta last for ever
And if a had the choice
Ye a always wanna be there
Those were the best days of ma life
Ain't no use in complaining
When you got a job to do
Spend ma evenin's down at the drive in
And thats where a met you you
Standin on your momma's porch
You told me not to wait for eva
Oh I am I am
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of ma life
oh Yeah
Back in the summer of 69
Oooh
There we were killin' time we were young and restless
We needed to unwind
A gues nothin' can last for eva
for eva no
Yeah
And now the times are changin'
look at everything thats come and gone
Sometimes when a play that old 6 string
Think about you and what went wrong
Standing on your momma's porch
You told me that it lasts forever
Ooh I am I am
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of ma life
Oooh Yeah
Back in the summer of 69
Oooh
It was the summer of 69
Oooh yeah
Me an' ma baby in 69
Ooooooh
It was the summer
The summer, the summer, the summer of 69back to top
Somebody
I 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

I need somebody
Somebody like you
Everybody needs somebody
I need somebody
Hey what about you
We all need somebody

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

[Chorus]back to top
Walkin' After Midnight
I got out walkin' after midnight
Out in the moonlight just like we used to do
I'm always walkin' after midnight
Searchin' for you

I walk for miles along the highway
Well, that's just my way of sayin' I love you
I'm always walkin' after midnight searchin' for you

I stop to see a weepin' willow cryin' on her pillow
Maybe she's cryin' for me
And as the sky turns gloomy, night winds whisper to me
I'm lonesome as I can be
I go out walkin' after midnight
Out in the moonlight
Just hopin' you may be out there a walkin' after midnight searchin' for
me

I walk for miles along the highway
Well, that's just my way of sayin' I love you
I'm always walkin' after midnight searchin' for youback to top
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 the money 'cause I had none
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
She's the best girl I've ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Robin' people with a six gun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
She's the best girl I've ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law wonback to top
Into the Fire
Life - thin as a thread
Sometimes you're lucky
Sometimes you're better off dead

Your first breath is taken and in to 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 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 on to 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 desiresback to top
