Rock me Bryan Adams

Do you remember the power ballad "Heaven" by Bryan Adams?
Here is a link to the video in case you need to refresh the brain.
Anyway, I heard something the other day and then I realized I am a sick and twisted person.
If you want to know if you are sick and twisted then replace the line "We're in Heaven" with "You are only 11" when you watch the video.
The lyrics are below if you just want to read.
If you giggle then welcome aboard the S & T fun bus.
If you didn't then you probably should not be reading this blog.


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 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
You are only 11
And love is all that I need
And I found it there in your heart
It isn't too hard to see
You are only 11

Oh - once in your life you find someone
Who will turn your world around
Bring you up when you're feelin' down

Ya - 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

N' baby you're all that I want
When you're lyin' here in my arms
I'm findin' it hard to believe
You are only 11
And love is all that I need
And I found it there in your heart
It isn't too hard to see
You are only 11

I've been waitin' for so long
For something to arrive
For love to come along

Now our dreams are comin' true
Through the good times and the bad
Ya - I'll be standin' there by you


P.S. I don't what is dumber - me thinking "You are only 11" is funny or that video. What the hell was the message there? Seriously people were doing a lot of narcotics back in the early '80s. OK. Let's open with a DUI arrest, then concert footage, then stoned chick leaves and sneaks into the concert, then stoned chick realizes she is stoned and has walked into a band rehearsal, then Bryan Adams wraps up the song and bolts off the stage because one of his band mates unleashed a fart tsunami that smelled like someone humped a piece of cheese, but then he is trapped inside because a blizzard just hit. Yeah that about sums it up.
