"Save Your Love" as written by and Jack/williams Russell....
I wake in the night,
To find you on my mind-
Deep in a dream,
you'll always be,
'Til the end of time...

I look in your eyes,
They touch my soul.
My love is hard to hide-
I'm never alone, when we're apart-
I feel you by my side...
And here in my heart,
Where no one else will ever be-
I know who you are-
So lock the door, and throw away the key!

[Chorus]
Save all your love,
Save your love, for me!
When I'm alone at night,
You're all I see...

I wake from a dream,
And see you by my side-
How could I belong to someone else;
when holding you, feels so right. . .
And here in my heart,
Where no one else will ever be-
We've made it so far,
So lock the door, and throw away the key!

[Chorus]
Save all your Love,
Save your love, for me!
When I'm alone at night,
You're all I see . . .
Save all your Love,
Save your love, for me!
Don't turn your back on me,
You're all I need!

I know who you are,
We've come so far-
So baby, stay with me!

[Chorus]
Save all your Love,
Save your love, for me!
Don't turn your back on me,
You're all I need!
Save your Love
Save your Love
Save all your Love!
Save, Save all your Love!

    General CommentMy favorite power ballad! This song takes me back to the cold,dark winter of '88. Such a beatifully gothic,minor chord classic. It feels like a separation of two friends under uncontrollable circumstances and years later there is a reminder of the friendship, be it a dream or a photograph that floods the memory. The person can never forget and wishes the best for the other. He is alone and saving his love for this ghost from the past. He has a reality check and wishes for the key to his heart back so he can save his love for the future. A positive blues that will heal your heart. Very understated and subtle for a hard rock band of this era. Brilliant!

    General CommentOne of the most beautiful love ballads of all time. Very underplayed.

    It reminds me of when I was on the road a lot and there was someone very special to me that I could never manage to hook up with and sadly, never did. Used to cry myself to sleep hearing this one. Still brings a tear...lol

    General CommentI think this song is about how he wishes he had his dream woman even though he is in a relationship.

    General CommentI always took it to mean to that she (his wife/romantic partner and soulmate) has passed away, and so the only place he sees her now is in his dreams, hence the line "Deep in a dream you'll always be, till the end of time". He also feels that she is the only one he will ever love, and so now he is alone for the rest of his life because no one could ever take her place. He thinks about her all the time, and when he wakes from his dreams, he imagines her next to him again, and feels deeply sad when he realizes she isn't. Whenever he's alone, she's all he sees. She's like an apparition that now haunts his dreams and memories, (haunts in a positive way, not in a bad way), the image at end of the music video portrays that very well. The woman is wearing a cape and a hood, and then as she turns and walks away she disappears. There's also a scene where her reflection is in the water, and when he puts his hand in the water, the reflection is gone. That is how the narrator sees her now...that she is always with him...but at the same time she isn't, because she's not in this world anymore. "Save all your love, save your love for me, don't turn your back on me..." basically means that he will never forget her, so he is telling her to never forget him wherever she has gone to, because he believes they will be together again and their love can never end, only go from one life to another.
