Update – “Everything I Do” Bryan Adams

No doubt, this song was one of the ultimate rock ballads by a truly gifted artist, but as I have aged it’s taken on a more profound and significant meaning in reference to the love and reverence I have for my country and the world at large.  Hearing the lyrics Don’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for, You can’t tell me it’s not worth dyin’ for” have transcended beyond the relationship of two people in love to a patriotic, spiritual anthem of devotion for one’s country.  Everything that we, the human race, does from this moment to save the planet from the grip of elitist materialism, greed and corruption in order to provide a more equitable living environment for all people is a sacrifice not to be shunned.   As the song continues I would fight for you – I’d lie for you, Walk the wire for you – ya I’d die for you” I would do all these for my country and for the sake of the world if it were required.  If my alternate interpretation is way over your head, then just enjoy it for it’s original message.

Bryan sings the last song at Wembley Stadium, London, in 1992.

Everything I Do –

Look into my eyes – you will see
What you mean to me
Search your heart – search your soul
And when you find me there you’ll search no moreDon’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for
You can’t tell me it’s not worth dyin’ for
You know it’s true
Everything I do – I do it for you

Look into your heart – you will find
There’s nothin’ there to hide
Take me as I am – take my life
I would give it all – I would sacrifice

Don’t tell me it’s not worth fightin’ for
I can’t help it – there’s nothin’ I want more
Ya know it’s true
Everything I do – I do it for you

There’s no love – like your love
And no other – could give more love
There’s nowhere – unless you’re there
All the time – all the way

Oh – you can’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for
I can’t help it – there’s nothin’ I want more
I would fight for you – I’d lie for you
Walk the wire for you – ya I’d die for you

Ya know it’s true
Everything I do – I do it for you
