April Wine – Just Between You and Me

I’m not a big power ballad lover but this one I liked. I owned this single back in 1981. I also had the album “Nature of the Beast” which it came off of. The song peaked at #21 in the Billboard 100 and #22 in Canada. April Wine was the first Candian band played on MTV.

From Songfacts.

Through nine lineup changes, April Wine has been going continuously since 1969 up until the present day. The Nature of the Beast represents their commercial peak, selling over one million copies in the US. “Just Between You and Me” was also their greatest-selling single in the US, becoming the band’s defining power ballad. However, their career has spawned 32 hits on the Canadian charts, 21 of those in the top 40.
Although they’ve been nominated eleven times for a Juno award, April Wine hasn’t won one yet. They have, however, been inducted into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame, the East Coast Music Hall of Fame, and the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, along with being presented with a CMW Lifetime Achievement Award in 2009.

Just Between You and Me

Time and time again I see
A love that seemed strong
Was not meant to be
Broken hearts don’t always mend
Left too unsure to try love again

But just between you and me
Baby I know our love will be
Just between you and me
Always I know our love will be
Just between you and me

Lovers often seem to say
Hearts can be blind to love gone astray
Always it’s the same old song
Someone’s been hurt by love that’s gone wrong

Just between you and me
Baby I know our love will be
Just between you and me
Always I know our love will be
Just between you
Just between you and me

Words are sometimes hard to find
The silence can be so unkind
You always help me find my way
The love that we share
Grows stronger each day

Just between you and me
Baby I know our love will be
Just between you and me
Always I know our love will be
Seulement entre toi et moi
Means that our love will always be
Just between you and me
Baby I know our love will be
Just between you
Just between you and me

  1. “Coulda Been a Lady” was my fave by them, but I liked a lot of their stuff and growing up in Canada, I was exposed to them regularly. they were an oddball band that perhaps in some ways paved the way for 80s hair metal bands in that they regularly played a mix of soft rock “ballads” and hard rock songs. Seems to me they even issued separate Greatest Hits albums,one for each genre. I’m told one of the guys in the band, not Myles Goodwin (the famous one, so to speak) owned an East coast style fish & chips shop in my city near Toronto just before I moved south

    1. Yea I liked Coulda Been a Lady also. I knew it more by Hot Chocolate but I did like April Wine’s version.
      I can see what you said about hair bands…I will say though this song has stuck with me and I love the solo also.

      I like getting your input on these bands… I thought they were bigger in Canada…just like Status Quo was big in England.
