A Canadian Sunday

Vancouver, Canada, Sea, OceanJim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: CANADIAN MUSIC

As soon as I knew that we were featuring Canadian musical artists this week, the first musician that came to my mind was Bryan Adams. I know there are others, but throughout my formative years Bryan Adams was always there in the background somewhere.

The huge challenge I had was to pick a favourite song. I would prefer to give you my top five BA tracks in all honesty. I think this one is somewhere up there at the top, along with “Heaven”, “Summer of 69” and “Everything I Do”.

I love this song, but the first time I read the lyrics I realized he is being a bit of a letch. He just needs to pick one girl and stick stick with her. I don’t like him stringing two women along. Nevermind…it is a great track!

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 feeling’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
Yeah! – I’m gonna run to you
Cause when the feeling’s right I’m gonna stay all night
I’m gonna run to you

Yeah! – I’m gonna run to you
Oh when the feeling’s right I’m gonna run all night
I’m gonna run to you

Oh when the feeling’s right now

Oh! – I’m gonna run to you
Yeah! – I’m gonna run to you
Cause when the feeling’s right I’m gonna stay all night
I’m gonna run to you

Oh! – I’m gonna run to you
Yeah! When the feeling’s right I’m gonna stay all night
Oh when the feeling’s right now

Oh yeah when the feeling’s right now
I’m gonna run to you
Oh, oh

Yeah, I’m gonna run to you
Yeah, I’m gonna
Oh, I’m gonna run to you, run to you
Oh, I’m gonna run to you
Oh
Oh, I’m gonna run now

    1. Are they married? Nobody told me. I knew he was with Alicia. And he is vegan apparently. I like him.
      I only meant that the subject of the song – being a two-timing cheat is kind of obnoxious.
      But it is a fantastic song. Just wish it was not about being a letch.

  1. Great choice in Bryan Adams! Yes formidable years! I graduated high school in 1984 so need I say more! My favorite, of course is “Everything I Do” (the extended version)…Love Love Love! Even though Kevin Costner couldn’t do an English accent, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves is still one of my favorite movies!!! Maybe I should have chose Adams for SLS. hehehe! 🙂

    1. I genuinely love “Everything I Do”….however, because it was at Number 1 in the UK charts for almost four months and it was played repeatedly on the radio – I can now only listen to it about once a year. I love love love it…but listening to it four hundred times in the summer of ??? was too much.
      I remember loving Robin Hood POT back in the day. It was on TV a few months ago and it was scary than I remembered. But I am such a softie these days.

      1. that would be Summer, 1991. I get it. It was #1 on the Hot 100 here for 7 weeks and the movie was popular. It continued to be popular through 1992 while I was pregnant…talk about hormonal! Guess that is why it has kinda stuck with me & I don’t hear it very often, but when I do, I remember back to when my now 28 year old kept me on bedrest for 13 weeks. That’s what I had to do, “I Do if for You” for her. 🙂
