Adams, Bryan - Heat Of The Night Lyrics

I was caught in the crossfire of a silent scream
Where one man's nightmare is another man's dream
Pull the covers up high and pray for the mornin' light
Cause you're livin' alone in the heat of the night

Met a man with a message from the other side
Couldn't take the pressure - had to leave it behind
He said it's up to you
You can run or you can fight - (ya that's right)
Better leave it alone in the heat of the night

In the heat of the night they'll be comin' around
They'll be lookin' for answers they'll be chasin' you down
In the heat of the night
(Where you gonna hide when it all comes down)
(Don't look back don't ever turn around)

Had to pay the piper to call the tune
Said he'd be back someday - said he'd be back real soon
Pull the shades down low - you'll know when the time is right
When you're lyin' alone in the heat of the night

Adams, Bryan Heat Of The Night Comments

    Pierwsza pozycja albumu Into The Fire ❤ mój ulubiony album, każda piosenka u mnie ma moją historię,a w tym roku wracając śpiewałam w duszy Home Again. Thanks 🙏 BA Wonderful album 💝

  2. Troy Martin

    i think this album was fairly dark...especially compared to his previous work ...and a lot of people didnt follw it..but i thought it was his best ...wasnt pop rock was rock with a harder edge...good stuff:)

  3. CompleteCretin

    Listening to 'Heat of the night' reminds me of writing 'pokes' on my old home computer and watching 'Aliens'.

    Awesome song and awesome video! Awesome-brings back memories of my youth/summer of 1987! Awesome time to be 15!

  18. Philip Horan

    I remember playing the Anthology to death when I was younger. This song is incredible and always will be. I think when I was that age I overlooked songs like this as opposed to Bryan's "hits"! Wow.

  19. Go LLama Programming

    only bryan adams could write a rock song called 'heat of the night' that isn't about sex

    Dios amo este disco good years

  35. marswmn

    Boy this song brings back memories. I wasnt a fan of this particular track back in the day; even though I like Bryan Adams, now all it does is flood me with memories. I cannot believe some of the enjoyable times spent with friends, this song playing and alot of those ppl are dead already. Cant get over it. Live every day like its your last cuz you never know..

  36. DL Lambert

    This was a cool NBC Miami Vice song 1980s...

  37. Tim Perrin

    Recipe for an 80's rock video, #1 Shoot it in an old warehouse. #2 Have a restless hot chick prancing around in her underwear. #3 Film it in Black and white. And #4 Show close up a big fan spinning around, gotta have the fans! Lol

  38. TheEarlymtv

    here in philly it was played a lot and a big top 40 hit.. into the fire was overshadowed by the josuha tree as were most albums in 1987. heat of the night was a different departure from the hits off reckless..

  39. Murray Wiebe

    I really enjoyed this song back in the day.

  40. Lifeduringwartime

    Wish Bryan did more songs like this and less of his cheesy ballads.

  41. Daniel Chant

    Best song of Bryan Adams

  42. Alejandra Beatriz Espinosa

    It's one of my favourite songs.

  43. MrRamyon74

    Saw Bryan and band in my hometown of Nelson last weekend, this song was missing from an otherwise amazing performance!! As always!!

  44. sinjinrui


  45. Laurentz Duba

    Missed the times when Bryan Adams sill played grrat songs like this - instead of the crap that got continuous airplay from the early 1990s onwards.

  46. Rolla Coasta Ride

    fucking ace

  47. M Thiede

    Wonder who came up with the idea of the snakes!

  52. SkilledRailroader

    Just saw him tonight in Moncton Jan 22, 2019.... Speechless, still can rock like the 80's. Had the whole crowd on their feet and singing. What an amazing band!! so much talent. I hope he comes back soon. Unfortunately this song was not played :( thrn again he has so many hits and new songs. He sang 2 and a half hours straight break. 1 encore break then another 20 min or so after that.
