Save The Best For Last

Album: The Comfort Zone (1991)
Charted: 3 1
  • Sometimes the snow comes down in June
    Sometimes the sun goes 'round the moon
    I see the passion in your eyes
    Sometimes it's all a big surprise
    'Cause there was a time when all I did was wish
    You'd tell me this was love
    It's not the way I hoped or how I planned
    But somehow it's enough

    And now we're standing face to face
    Isn't this world a crazy place
    Just when I thought our chance had passed
    You go and save the best for last

    All of the nights you came to me
    When some silly girl had set you free
    You wondered how you'd make it through
    I wondered what was wrong with you

    'Cause how could you give your love to someone else
    And share your dreams with me
    Sometimes the very thing you're looking for
    Is the one thing you can't see

    And now we're standing face to face
    Isn't this world a crazy place
    Just when I thought our chance had passed
    You go and save the best for last

    Sometimes the very thing you're looking for
    Is the one thing you can't see

    Sometimes the snow comes down in June
    Sometimes the sun goes 'round the moon
    Just when I thought our chance had passed
    You go and save the best for last

    You went and saved the best for last Writer/s: Phil Galdston, Jon Lind, Wendy Waldman-Parker

  • Mary Grace Jabagat Agan from Kuwait Is this a good song for lovers?
  • Staci Duckett from Atlanta Georgiavanessa williams she is beautiful and talented
  • Michael from Vienna (austria)I have always loved this song, both for its sweet melody and its lyrics - and of course Williams' great performance! You don't have to be Vanessa Williams to make the experience that often in life in the end it turns out for what is ultimately the best.
    I heard it for the first during the credits for the wonderful Australian drag comedy "Priscilla Queen of the Desert" untill the final joke with the love doll having landed in a Japanese monastery. The soundtrack of the film saved the best song for last indeed.
  • K from Miami, FlVanessa does a good job with this song; She brings it to life.
