Bryan Adams - Heaven



In a December 2003 interview, composer Jim Vallance said he co-wrote this song with lyricist Bryan Adams for "a dreadful film called A Night In Heaven, about a male stripper, which was released in 1983." The film may have been third rate but the song was a monster hit. Originally a power ballad, in 2002 it was recorded by DJ Sammy, whose version went to #1 in the UK and #8 in the US.

Adams mentioned:

"Everyone loves this song, and I was thrilled at the dance version produced by Yanou. It's always interesting to hear how other people interpret your music, sometimes, like this version, they connect."

The DJ Sammy remix was also a personal favorite of Jessie Gilbert, who at the age of 11 won the Women's World Amateur Chess Championship. Jessie died in tragic circumstances in July 2006 aged just 19; the song was played at her funeral service at St. Mark's Church, Reigate, the following month.


Heaven - Lyrics


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
