Summer of ’69

DSC00031by Bryan Adams

I got my first real six string
Bought it at the five and dime
Played it til my fingers bled
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

But 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 – ya

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’n 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

Can’t Stop This Thing We Started

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
Ya gotta know it’s right
Can’t stop this course we plotted
This thing called love we got it
No place for the broken hearted

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
Can’t stop this thing we started
Ya gotta know it’s right
Can’t stop this course we plotted
This thing called love we got it
No place for the broken hearted

Can’t stop this thing we started – no way I’m goin’ your way!
Oh – why take it slow
I gotta know
Nothin’ can stop – this thing that we got

I’m ready

Sometimes words are hard to find
I’m looking for that perfect line
to let you know you’re always on my mind
ya this is love – n’ I’ve learned enough to know
I’m never lettin’ go

when you want it – when you need it
you’ll always have the best of me
I can’t help it – believe it
you’ll always get the best of me

I may not always know what’s right
but I know I want you here tonight
gonna make this moment last for all your life
oh ya this is love – n’ it really means so much
I can tell from every touch
no, no, no – can’t get enough

when you want it – when you need it
you’ll always have the best of me
I can’t help it – believe it
you’ll always get the best of me
