​Save the Best for Later

This song is by Golden Earring and appears on the album The Hole (1986).

I want you, yes I want you
How come you don't want me too
Like moonshine on silver water
The sun will shine only for me and you

I can't stop thinkin' about you
Can't stop tryin', baby to escape the blues
No don't close your eyes
You need a change of attitude

Is it possible for a girl to face the truth
It's a certified lie, works every time
But I can't deny, that I'm crazed out on you
Cross my heart, cross my heart

Well I can't buy you no roses
Can't give you anythin' you need
But I'm landslide and I'm comin'
And well, you better get yourself prepared for it

'Cause I can't stop thinking about you
Can't imagine livin' a life without you in it
No don't close your eyes
I want to talk to you

Is it possible for a girl to face the truth
It's a certified lie, works every time
But I can't deny, that I'm crazed out on you
Cross my heart, cross my heart

I'm a qualified fool for you
Cross my heart
It's my dream and baby you're in it
Cross my heart

Hot sheets of satin
And a fountain of pearls in the next room
Oh it's so exaggerated
Like a Chinese wall to wall, now

We'll save the best for later
Always the best for later
Just can't hide the fact
That I'm all crazed out and I can't hold back

A jewel in a crown and I'll find you one
Any wish is my command
Small-talk at the gambling table
And you'll finally understand

We'll save the best for later
Always the best for later
Oh mercy mama, have some mercy and some faith in me
Every night a secret sundown

Whispers it to the breeze
Nothin' special honey
Only one more basic fact
You make me talk like that

There's nothing in the world
That can stop me from savin' the best for later (2x)

Always, save the best for later
Always save the best for later
