Radio XVII, side A, track 10: “This Time” by Bryan Adams

Bryan Adams - This TimeOh, Bryan Adams, here’s what I like about you:  you’re a confident man.  When I listen to your songs, there’s always just a touch of bravado in your lyrics.  Just a pinch.  You can barely even tell it’s there.  But when you sing about love, it’s pretty rare that you’re going to hear a Bryan Adams song where Bryan Adams sounds like he got his heart broke.  No, sir.  No, Bryan Adams, when you sing a song, you’re either telling a girl that you’re going to make her world perfect, or like in this one, where she might not be buying what you’re selling, it’s no problem, because that’s just a little speed bump on the road of love.  Sure she’s walking away from you right now, but you’re BRYAN ADAMS, Bryan Adams.  That girl’s just not in her right mind at present.  But at some point, she’s going to turn on the radio and hear your voice or just stop being stupid and realize who is pursuing her and fall right into your arms.  Because you’re Bryan flippin’ Adams, Bryan Adams.  Of COURSE everything’s gonna be all right.

“This Time”

I think about her all the time

She’s my fantasy

An image burnin’ in my mind

Callin’ out to me

While my imagination’s runnin’ wild

Yeeeah!
Things are getting clearer

Oh-oh-ohhh oh
This time
Everything is all right
No way
She’s gonna get away
This time
Everything is easy
Any day

I’m gonna make her mine

I’ve thought of every word I’d say

Give or take a few

But she turns and slowly walks away

What do I have to do

Hey, turn up your radio

Ohhhhh
There’s somethin’ I want you to know

Yeeeeeah
This time
Everything is all right
No way
She’s gonna get away
This time
Everything is easy
Any day

I’m gonna make her mine

Yeah, I’m gonna make her mine

This tiiime

<awesome Bryan Adams jam>

It’s hard to take
‘Cause she’s miles away
And I’ve waited a long time

But the feelin’s right
Darlin’, one of these nights

Yeeeah, I’m gonna let you know

Oh-oh-ohhh oh
This time
Everything is all right
No way
She’s gonna get away
This time
Everything is easy
Any day
I’m gonna make her mine

This time
Everything is all right
No way
She’s gonna get away
This time
Everything is easy
Any day

I’m gonna make her mine

Yeah, I’m gonna make her mine

Ohhh yeah

This tiiime
