  • A few stolen moments is all that we share
    You've got your family and they need you there
    Though I've tried to resist being last on your list
    But no other man's gonna do
    So I'm saving all my love for you

    It's not very easy living all alone
    My friends try and tell me find a man of my own
    But each time I try, I just break down and cry
    'Cause I'd rather be home feeling blue
    So I'm saving all my love for you

    You used to tell me we'd run away together
    Love gives you the right to be free
    You said be patient just wait a little longer
    But that's just an old fantasy

    I've got to get ready just a few minutes more
    Gonna get that old feeling when you walk through that door
    'Cause tonight is the night for feeling alright
    We'll be making love the whole night through
    So I'm saving all my love
    Yes, I'm saving all my love
    Yes, I'm saving all my love for you

    No other woman is gonna love you more
    'Cause tonight is the night that I'm feeling alright
    We'll be making love the whole night through
    So I'm saving all my love
    Yeah, I'm saving all my lovin'
    Yes, I'm saving all my love for you
    For you
    For you Writer/s: Gerry Goffin, Michael Masser

  • Anonymousgreat singing, horrible message
  • Hannah from Hopkinton, MaThe song was her first hit in the British Isles!
  • Grandesoba from Luanda, AngolaI thank God the fact that Whitney didn't listen to his mom regarding this song. Its so strong, so beautiful and its reality of lots of women in the world.
  • Jennifer Harris from Grand Blanc, MiPatrena James did this for the talent show on a American Idol on PS2,she did good.
  • Lalah from Wasilla, AkOne of my ultra-conservative coworkers adored this song until I told her it was about the "other" woman. At least she quit singing it. Whitney should have listened to her mom.
