"Heaven"

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, 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

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

You're all that I want
You're all that I need

We're in heaven
We're in heaven
We're in heaven

This song was used in the soundtrack of the film "A Night in Heaven" (1983) before it was included in Bryan Adams' album "Reckless" (1984) one year later.
The song "Faithfully" (by Journey) was the main inspiration for Adams and Jim Vallance (co-author) during the writing process. The Journey's drummer Steve Smith even played on the record.
The song became a hit reaching the top position in Billboard Hot 100 in the USA in 1985. It is his first number-one single there, and it reached charts' top positions in many European countries as well.
A cover version of this song is featured in the film "Magic Mike XXL" (2015).
Shane Filan made a cover of this song for his album "Love Always" in 2017.
