Rock Ballad of The Week: Bryan Adams: Heaven

12 Comments

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

Yeah 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

And 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

Yeah 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, yeah

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
Yeah I’ll be standin’ there by you

And 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, heaven, oooh

You’re all that I want
You’re all that I need

“Heaven” is a song by Canadian singer and songwriter Bryan Adams, originally recorded in 1983, co-written by Adams and Jim Vallance. It first appeared on the A Night in Heaven soundtrack album in the same year and was later included on Adams’ album Reckless in 1984. It was released as the third single from Reckless and reached number 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in June 1985, over a year and a half after the song first appeared on record. The single was certified Gold in Canada in 1985.
Heavily influenced by Journey’s 1983 hit “Faithfully”, the song was written while Adams served as the opening act on that band’s Frontiers Tour, and features their drummer, Steve Smith. The song provided Adams with his first number one single and third Top ten hit on the American charts; according to Billboard magazine the song also entered the Top 25 of the most successful singles of 1985 in the U.S

  1. Ah, the eighties and nineties for their music!

  2. I absolutely love this song. It always brings up such beautiful memories. Thank you for sharing this today, Sylvester 😊

  3. I heard this one not too long ago…he kind of took it down a notch to do a ballad and it ended up being a great gamble for him.
