This Time
Bryan Adams Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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
Yeah, things are getting clearer, oh oh
This time everything is alright
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
Oh, there's somethin' I want you to know, yeah

This time everything is alright
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 time

It's hard to take 'cause she's miles away
And I've waited a long time
But the feeling's right, darlin' one of these nights
Yeah, I'm gonna let you know, oh oh

This time everything is alright
No way she's gonna get away
This time everything is easy
Any day, I'm gonna make her mine

This time everything is alright
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, oh yeah
This time
