Heaven – Bryan Adams

September 10, 2021

Today’s song of the day is “Heaven” by Bryan Adams. The single was released in the album and A Night in Heaven Soundtrack.

Fun Facts

  • The Canadian songwriter recorded the song back in 1983 with the help of Jim Vallance.
  • The song was placed third place in the Reckless Album and topped the charts two years later.
  • In June 1985, it reached first place in the U.S Billboard’s Top 100. The power station studio production was certified Gold by Canadians later the same year.
  • Some fans argue that the song’s rise to the top of the charts was significantly influenced by Journey’s hit titled Faithfully, a huge hit. This argument is based on the fact that Adams was the opening act for the band. All his opening acts were assisted by the band’s drummer Steve Smith, one of the most talented artists of his time.
  • The song Heaven first appeared in public as a soundtrack to a film titled A Night in Heaven.
  • At the time, the single was not released officially as a single. At this point, Adams was convinced that the hit single would not be an eligible entry in his upcoming album Reckless. He thought that the song was a bit too light for the album, a misgiving seconded by his producer Jimmy Lovine.
  • Adams decided to add the song to the album at the last possible moment, a move we are sure he has not regretted.
  • The single went on to win a few awards, including the Procan Award in 1984.

Lyrics

(Musixmatch)

Oh thinkin’ about all our younger years

There was only you and me

We were young and wild and free

Now nothing 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

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’ can 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 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

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, oh!

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

Isn’t too hard to see

We’re in heaven, heaven

Whoa, oh, oh!

You’re all that I want

You’re all that I need
