"Thought I'd Died And Gone To Heaven" as written by and Bryan Adams....
Love is forever, as I lie awake
Beside you
I believed, there's no heaven
No hideaway, for the lonely

But I was wrong, crazy
It's gotta be strong
It's gotta be right

Only wanted to stay a while
Only wanted to play a while
Then you taught me to fly like a bird

Baby, thought I'd died and gone to heaven
Such a night I never had before
Thought I'd died and gone to heaven
'Cause what I got there ain't no cure for

Oh it's so easy
What you do to me all night angel
I never loved, I swear to God
Never needed no one, 'til you came along

Here I come baby
It's gotta be strong, it's gotta be right
Only wanted to stay awhile
Only wanted to play awhile
Then you taught me to fly like a bird

Baby, thought I'd died and gone to heaven
Such a night I never had before
Thought I'd died and gone to heaven
'Cause what I got there ain't no cure for

I feel fast asleep, I feel drunk
I dream the sweetest dreams
Never wanna wake up

Never thought it could be this way
No doubt about it, can't live without it
Never thought it could be this good
You made love to me, the way it ought to be

But I was wrong, crazy
It's gotta be strong
It's gotta be right

Only wanted to stay a while
Only wanted to play a while
Then you taught me to fly like a bird

Baby, thought I'd died and gone to heaven
Such a night I never had before
Thought I'd died and gone to heaven
'Cause what I got there ain't no cure for

Got say, thought I'd died and gone to heaven
Never thought that I could feel this way yeah (thought I'd died and gone to heaven)
It's gotta be love (it's gotta be love)
Thought I'd died and gone to heaven heaven

    General CommentI can't believe I'm the only person who has commented on the great song. It's such a love song. If I were a woman, I would drop my skirt for any man who played this song for me.

    Seriously, there is some talent here. The meaning seems pretty ovbious.

    General CommentThis song is not really about love at its core. Bryan Adams is an incredible writer and can take many themes and bring them together cohesively.
    You need to take a look at what happened before the release of this album. Im from Canada and so I have followed his career pretty closely.

    Brian was working on what would be waking up the neighbors, with producer steve liliwhite...of U2 fame. It was so bad, that he ended up firing him.

    Shortly after that, he met Mutt Lange, of Def Leppard /AcDc fame. I listened to an interview with Brian who said that, the first time they got together at Mutt Langs house, it was like magic. They literally finished and wrote three or four songs in a day. Mutt Lange, litterly gave Brian the big sound he needed to move to the next level. He already had 6 albums or so under his belt, but he hadnt broke through in the US. Hense the title of the album. As Canadians, we have always seen the US as this big bright light behind a fence so to speak.

    Have a read over the lyrics now and you will see that all this makes sense. I would be interested in hearing anyone elses comments on what I wrote here.
