"Saving All The Love" as written by and Joe Firstman....
You would invite me in on a whim
And I'd stay as long as you let me
I'd watch that smile that would stretch to your chin
When you said that you'd never forget me
It took that whole bottle for me to say
"Oh, I wish you would stay"
And I'll take all your worries away
While wondering how I'm gonna get you to quit smoking
But you stay and smile at my jokes
And my anecdotes
So I owe you now
But this road sign ain't forever

'Cause I'm saving all the love
That I'm supposed to give to Jesus
So that I can give it all to you
And the Lord's gonna be jealous
But he ain't never seen you let your hair down
And when we're dancing to the alter
The preacher won't believe us
Your mother fucking hates me
And the Lord will deceive us
But I'll still be giving it away
I'm gonna give it all to you

You come and watch me play the piano
And I'm supposed to watch your thoughts as you think
And I'm young and wrong
But your hair is long
And it's dark as the wine that we drink
Remind me of old East Bay Street
And of Friday night
Remind me you're taken
And that I am mistaken
But still to call you
When I turn 25

And when we're dancing to the alter
The preacher won't believe us
Your daddy's gonna shoot me
And the Lord will deceive us
But I'll still be giving it away
I'm gonna give it all to you

    General CommentSelf explanatary song. It's about a rough-around-the-edges couple (he hates that she smokes, her parents hate him) that have an amazing connection despite a lot of problems. Look this up on youtube and you'll catch a few words in between his performance--he says it is a true story, and he wasn't kidding me when he said her parents REALLY DID hate him, but that was the least of the couple's problems.

    General CommentMost amazing song.

    I'm in the same situation.. My fiancee's mother hates me with a passion (Has threated restraining orders, calls me the devil, the whole 9 yards) We've both tried to end it for piece of mind for the both of us, but once you've found that love.. nothing will give that peace of mind except that love.
