The song is about a dilemma between settling down or trying to become a rock star. The song was written by Adams and Jim Vallance , a long-time writing partner of Adams. The single had a strong effect on music charts internationally, with its highest peak being number four in the Netherlands, and its least successful charting country being Germany. The track was promoted with a music video, which was filmed by Steve Barron. The video features Adams and his backing band in a variety of settings, including running from the police. After a tour supporting his album Cuts Like a Knife , Adams immediately started the recording sessions for the new album, Reckless. The song went through a number of changes because neither Adams nor Vallance was convinced it was a strong enough song to be featured on the album. In their first draft, the lyric "summer of '69" appeared only once.

Ain't no use in complainin' When you got a job to do Spent my evenin's down at the drive-in And that's when I met you - ya. Standin' on your mama's porch You told me that you'd wait forever Oh and when you held my hand I knew that it was now or never Those were the best days of my life. Man we were killin' time We were young and reckless We needed to unwind I guess nothin' can last forever - forever, no And now the times are changin' Look at everything that's come and gone Sometimes when I play that old six string I think about you wonder what went wrong. Standin' on your mama's porch You told me that it'd last forever Oh and when you held my hand I knew that it was now or never Those were the best days of my life Back in the summer of ' Em alta:.
