Word's of Love by Bryan Adams
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...You're history...
...You said you'd wait forever but I know your type:
"The lights are on but no-one's home".
I changed my number, maybe, you better change your mind,
'cause I'd rather spend the night alone...
...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...

EVERYTHING I DO :

Look into my eyes, you will see what you mean to me
Search your heart, search your soul and when you find me there you'll search no more.
Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for, you can't tell me it's not worth dyin' for
You know it's true, everything I do, I do it for you
Look into my heart, you will find there's nothin' there to hide
Take me as I am, take my life, I would give it all, I would sacrifice.
Don't tell me it's not worth fightin' for, I can't help it, there's nothin' I want more.
You know it's true, everything I do, I do it for you
There's no love like your love, and no other could give more love.
There's nowhere unless you're there, all the time, all the way...
...I would fight for you, I'd lie for you
Walk the wire for you, ya I'd die for you.
You know it's true, everything I do, I do it for you, I do it for you...

ALL FOR LOVE

When it's love you give
-I'll be your man of good faith-
then in love you live
-I'll make a stand I won't break-
I'll be the rock you can build on, be there when you're old,
to have and to hold.
When there's love inside
-I swear I'll always be strong-
then there's a reason why
-I'll prove to you we belong-
I'll be the wall that protects you from the wind and the rain,
from the hurt and the pain. Yeah!
Let's make it all for one and all for love.
Let the one you hold be the one you want, the one you need,
'cause when it's all for one it's one for all.
When there's someone that should know
then just let your feelings show and make it...
...When it's love you make
-I'll be the fire in your night-
then it's love you take
-I will defend, I will fight-
I'll be there when you need me.
When honor's at stake, this vow I will make: yeah! that...
...Don't lay our love to rest 'cause we could stand up to the test.
We got everything and more than we had planned,
more than the rivers that run inland,
we've got it all in our hands. Now it's...
...When there's someone that you want,
when there's someone that you need...

ALL I WANT IS YOU

Don't want diamonds...gold...fashion, don't wanna be cool...
...hustle just to get thru.
When it all comes down, babe, all I want is you...argue...fight...
...no politics, babe, all thru the night.
I told ya before, gonna tell ya once more.
For the last time, baby, open up your door...
...Not any old girl will do...
...If ya don't need love, ya gotta be nuts.
The heaviest metal always rusts, just you and me, babe, hangin' tough. It's gotta be...love or bust!
Don't need a doctor...a nurse...a prescription,
babe, only make me feel worse...a license...insurance...
...a ticket where we're goin', babe. You got my assurance, ya...

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...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...
...Oh! why take it slow, I gotta know nothin' can stop this thing that we got...

CUTS LIKE A KNIFE

Drivin' home this evenin' coulda sworn we had it all worked out,
you had this boy believin' way beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Then I heard it on the street,
I heard ya might of found somebody new, well, who is he, baby...?
...and tell me what he means to you!
I took it for granted but how was I to know that you'd be lettin' go?
Now it cuts like a knife, but it feels so right...
...There's times I've bin mistaken...
...I've thought I've bin misunderstood.
So wait a minute, darlin', can't you see we did the best we could?
This wouldn't be the first time that things have gone astray.
Now, you've thrown it all away...

DEPEND ON ME

When you're losin' direction, baby, you can depend on me.
For a little love and affection...
...If ya feel brokenhearted and you just can't get started...
...Ya know it's never easy and when you're feelin' blue,
there'll be times you feel so empty, ya, sometimes I feel it, too.
Like sister to brother, father to mother, we live for each other, we're lover to lover.
As deep as an ocean filled with emotion, I'm forever open, can't you see...?
...For someone to rely on and a shoulder to cry on...
...If you're in need of some kindness and you can't seem to find it...
...Well, there ain't no need to worry, you know we'll get along.
Those dark clouds may surround you, but together we'll be strong...
...Your love is a guiding light, I've been watchin' it shine, shine on, baby!
When hard times are all around and there's miles and miles of dirty road...
...There's no need to carry that heavy load...
...When hope is gone and all is lost, just reach out, take my hand, I'll be there, I'll be your man...

I THINK ABOUT YOU

I oughta be working, but I can't concentrate...
...sleepin', steada stayin' up late,
when I oughta be doin' all the things I should do, I think about you...
...writin', but I can't find the song, just sittin' here driftin'...along.
There's only one thing that I wanna do and that's think about you...
...I can't get no rest...there ain't no one else.
It's all I can do, I can't help myself, ya...
...I could go crusin', but I've had enough...
...drinkin', but I can't stand the stuff.
It just don't do me like it used to do, I'd rather...

LET'S MAKE A NIGHT TO REMEMBER

I love the way you look tonight, with your hair hanging down on your shoulders and
I love the way you dance your slow sweet tango, the way you wanna do everything but talk,
and how you stare at me with those "undress-me" eyes,
your breath on my body make me warm inside.
Let's make out, let's do something amazing, let's do something that's all the way,
'cuz I never touched somebody like the way I touch your body now, I never wanna let your body go.
Let's make a night to remember from January to December,
let's make love to excite us, a memory to ignite us.
Let's make honey, baby, soft and tender, let's make sugar, darlin', sweet surrender,
let's make a night to remember all life long.
I love the way ya move tonight, beads of sweat drippin' down your skin,
me lyin' here, and you lyin' there, our shadows on the wall and our hands everywhere...
...I think about ya all the time, can't ya see you drive me outta my mind?
Well, I'm never holdin' back again, ya, I never want this night to end
cuz I've never touched somebody like the way I touch your body,
now I never wanna let your body go...

I'LL ALWAYS BE RIGHT THERE

I swear to you I will always be there for you, there's nothin' I won't do.
I promise you all my life I will live for you.
We will make it through forever, we will be together, you and me.
Oh! n' when I hold ya, nothin' can compare,
with all of my heart ya know I'll always be right there.
I believe in us, nothin' else could ever mean so much.
You're the one I trust.
Our time has come, we're not two people, now, we are one.
Ya, you're second to none...
...a family, the more I get to know ya, the more I really care...
...ya know I really love ya...for all of my life...

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'...
...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...Pretendin' we don't care...
...Sometimes life ain't fair...

PLEASE FORGIVE ME

Still feels like our first night together
Feels like the first kiss, it's gettin' better baby
No one can better this...
Still holdin' on, you're still the one
First time our eyes met, same feelin' I get
Only feels much stronger, wanna love ya longer
You still turn the fire on...
So if you're feelin' lonely don't you're the only one I ever want
I only wanna make it good so if I love ya a little more than I should
Please forgive me, I know not what I do...
...I can't stop lovin' you
Don't deny me this pain I'm going through...
...if I need ya like I do
Please believe me every word I say is true...
...our best times are together...
...touch, still gettin' closer baby
Can't get close enough...
Still holdin' on, still number one I remember the smell of your skin...everything
...all your moves...you, yeah!
...the nights ya know I still do...
...One thing I'm sure of is the way we make love
And one thing I depend on is for us to stay strong
With every word and every breath I'm prayin'
That's why I'm sayin'...
...Never leave me I don't know what I'd do...

YOU'RE STILL BEAUTIFUL TO ME

Turn out the lights and close the door, put your head on the pillow, let me keep ya warm.
I wanna run my hands across your face, ya lyin' beside, ya still the perfect place,
we're still goin' strong, so glad that ya came along, ya, babe,
in every way you're still beautiful to me, I just have ta say...
...It's been a long time, baby, lay back,
baby, close your eyes, let me do everything your heart desires.
When I think of the years makin' love to you
there still ain't nothin' that I'd rather do, yeah, there's somethin' I can't deny:
you sure know how to move this guy, ya...
...can't ya see still feels good?
still runs deep when you get close, babe?
I still get weak 'cuz in these arms is where you belong...
...hey, babe, your still number one, oh! can't ya see...?
...you'll always be so beautiful to me...

THE ONLY THING THAT LOOKS GOOD ON ME IS YOU

Well, I don't look good in no Armani suits, no Gucci shoes or designer boots.
I've tried the latest line from "A" to "Z", but there's just one thing that looks good on me.
The only thing I want, the only thing I need, the only thing I choose,
the only thing that looks good on me is you.
I'm not satisfied with Versace style, put those patent leather pants in the circular file.
Sometimes I think I might be lookin' good, but there's only one thing that fits like it should.
The only thing I want, the only thing I need, the only thing I choose,
the only thing that looks good on me is you.
Ya, it's you, it could only be you, nobody else will ever do,
Ya, baby, it's you that I stick to, ya we stick like glue...

DO I HAVE TO SAY THE WORDS?

Rescue me from the mire, whisper words of desire
Rescue me, darlin' rescue me.
With your arms open wide want you here by my side, come to me, darling come to me.
When this world's closin' in there's no need to pretend.
Set me free, darling set me free.
I don't wanna let you go so I'm standin' in your way.
I never needed anyone like I'm needin' you today
Do I have to say the words? Do I have to tell the truth?
Do I have to shout it out? Do I have to say a prayer?
Must I prove to you - how good we are together? Do I have to say the words?
Rescue me from despair, tell me you will be there, help me, please...
...Every dream that we share, every cross that we bear, can't you see...

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, yeah!
When your heart has been broken, hard words have been spoken, it ain't easy, but...
...And your life ain't worth livin', and you're ready to give in.
Just remember that...you can live without the aggravation,
ya gotta wanna win...you keep lookin' back in desperation, over and over and over again...Ya...

STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART

I could start dreamin' but it'd never end.
As long as you're gone we may as well pretend
I've been dreamin' straight from the heart.
You said it's easy but who's to say that we'd be able to keep it this way.
But it's easier comin'...Give it to me...
...Tell me we can make another start.
You know I'll never go as long as I know it's comin'...
...I'll see you on the street some other time
and all our words would just fall outta line while we're dreamin'...
...Tell me we can make one more start...

THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER TONIGHT

Put on your best dress, darling, can't you see the time is right?
There will never be another tonight.
If you got your motor runnin', then I got my engines on.
Say the word and, darlin', we'll be gone.
Outside the world is waitin', but we won't lose control.
So come on, now, let the good times roll.
You gotta ride your broom right into my room, kick off your shoes, make yourself at home,
wave your little wand, weave a little spell, make a little magic, raise some hell...
...C'mon, baby, hold on tight...
...I don't care if it's wrong or right,
we got nothin' to lose, just me and you, in your wildest dreams...
...Who cares about tomorrow?
Let the wind fill your sails, a runaway train ridin' on the rails,
we got the bases loaded, home run, power play.
Tonight's the night we're goin' all the way...
...Flash your diamonds, shine your lights...
...Some people they're looking for paradise, others, they're looking for inner light.
Me, I'm just having the time of my life, I'm headin' out, to check it out...

TOUCH THE HAND

Stand up! if ya wanna fight, I'm tellin' all the women...
...for your rights.
If ya wanna wear the trousers, you wanna act like a man,
I'd love to trade ya places, love to be your thang.
I'd do all the shopping, collect you favorite suit, press all the laundry, polish all your boots.
And if you brought me flowers, I'd meet you at the door.
Have your dinner ready, your slippers on the floor,
and when day turns to night and you feel alright, and I turn out the lights,
touch the hand of the man who'll make ya woman...
...who'll make it right...
...'Cause...it's alright.
Love to play the woman, love to play your wife, light you favorite cigarette, pour your favorite drink,
wear your best apron, wash the dishes in the sink,
get your shaving lotion, turn the shower on, warm up your bathrobe, keep my baby warm,
read ya bedtime stories while you take a nap, turn on the TV, put out the cat. But...

IF YOU WANNA LEAVE ME (CAN I COME TOO?)

You can't stand still for a moment...for a night.
Your feet just starta move when it's boring, but you gotta stick around to get it right, so...
...You can't find love in the kitchen, you walk the dark side of the street,
you can't find any hope in religion, ya gotta feel the road under your feet.
I'm gonna shed a little light...love ya every night.
We'll get it right...If you wanna leave me, can I come, too?...
...gonna go with you! If you say "no", I'm still gonna go...
...You try'n keep dry in the water...cool in the fire.
The politics of love are getting harder, so grab a hold, take my hand, we'll take it higher...!

ON A DAY LIKE TODAY

Free is all you gotta be, dream dreams no one else can see
Sometimes ya wanna run away, but ya never know what might be comin' round your way.
On a day like today the whole world could change, the sun's gonna shine, shine thru the rain
On a day like today, ya never wanna see the sun go down, ya never wanna see the sun go down.
Somewhere, there's a place for you, I know that you believe it too
Sometimes if you wanna get away all ya gotta know is what we got is here to stay, all the way.
On a day like today the whole world could change, the sun's gonna shine, shine thru the rain
On a day like today no one complains, free to be pure, free to be sane.
On a day like today ya never wanna see the sun go down, ya never wanna see the sun go down.
Free is all we gotta be, dream dreams no one else can see
But ya never know what might be comin' for you and me, ya it's gonna be...

DO TO YOU

If ya love somebody, if ya need someone, if ya want somebody, ya, let me be the one.
I wanna do to you what you do to me...
...let me treat ya right, show I care, 'cuz every night I'll take ya there...
...don't want just anything, I just want something real,
let down your defenses, baby, show me what you feel...
...should I stay or should I go?
There ain't no question, baby,I already know...help me...

BLACK PEARL

Deep down in Mississippi, I found my sweet delta blues,
she weaved a little southern spell on me, made a little voodoo.
She was born the bright side of midnight when her mama was seventeen,
she was a hot-blooded god-fearin'gospel girl, the finest that I ever seen.
She's black coffee, little bit 'o cream sweet brown sugar, my midnight dream black pearl,
my kinda girl just the kinda thing to rock my world...she's my...
...met her in a Dixie Diner, put on the southern hospitality,
I can still smell her sweet molasses running all over me, we started rolling like the river,
like a twister tearin' through the town, we were tounge tied, satisfied and southern fried
as she drove this ol' dixie down...yeah, she's alright,
yeah, she's ok makin' love all night, she really made my day...

I FINALLY FOUND SOMEONE

I finally found someone that knocks me off my feet.
I finally found the one that makes me feel complete.
It started over coffee, we started out as friends
it's funny how from simple things the best things begin.
This time it's different, it's all because of you,
it's better that it's ever been 'cause we can talk it through.
My favourite line was: "Can I call you sometime?"
it's all you had to say to take my breath away.
This is it oh!
I finally found someone, someone to share my life.
I finally found the one to be with every night 'cause whatever I do it's just got to be you.
My life had just begun I finally found someone
Did I keep ya waitin'? - I didn't mind
I apologize - baby, that's fine.
I would wait forever just to know you were mine.
Ya know, I love your hair - are you sure it looks right?
I love what you wear - Isn't it too tight?
You're exceptional - I can't wait for the rest of my life...

HEY HONEY, I'M PACKIN' YOU IN!

Had enough of your crazy ways...of your leavin' for days.
Don't wanna hear you waggin' your chin, sick 'n' tired of your noisy din.
Don't want another kick on the shin, hey, honey, I'm packin' you in!...
...of your faddy diets, I can't wait for a real good fry up.
I'm gettin' bored of microwave cookin' and you tellin' me how awful I'm lookin'...
...how you gotta be thin...
...I don't wanna be the joke of the party,
I just wanna be back where I started.
I'm gettin' out before the goin' gets grim.
So...of you hangin' round bars and crashin' up my favorite car...
...of this and that, and ya askin' for favours and usin' up my brand new razors.
Don't want another cut on my chin...
...No point in hangin' round with a restless heart,
don't wanna let you down but I'm blowin' this town for a brand new start.
I want out, you want in. Forget about that weddin' ring!
Had enough of your hand in the til...of your credit card bills.
Get on back to your next of kin...

(I WANNA BE) YOUR UNDERWEAR

I wanna be your t-shirt when it's wet, wanna be the shower when you sweat.
I gotta be the tattoo on your skin, ya, lemme be your bed, baby, when you climb in,
I wanna be the sheets when you sleep, lemme be the secrets that you keep,
I gotta be the spoon to stir your cream, I wanna be the one that really makes you scream.
I wanna be your lipstick when ya lick it, I wanna be your high heals when ya kick it,
I wanna be your sweet love babe, ya, when ya make it from your feet up to your hair,
more than anything I swear, I wanna be your underwear.
I wanna be the itch that you scratch, lemme be your chair when you relax,
I got to be your razor when you shave, wanna be the habbit that really makes you crave.
I wanna be, be your hot tub when you're dippin', I wanna be your bathrobe when you're drippin'.
I wanna be your cocktail, baby, when you're sippin', I just wanna be right there,
more than anything, I swear, I wanna be your underwear.
Wanna be your sleeping bag, baby, slip inside, lemme be your motorcycle n' take ya for a ride,
alright, I wanna be your hot sauce, ya, when you're cookin'.
I wanna be your sunglasses, hey, goodlookin'! I wanna be the one ya stick your hook in.
I just wanna be right there more than anything I swear, oh yeah, I wanna be your underwear...
