"The Love You Save" as written by and Freddie/mizell Perren....
Stop, you better save me
Stop, stop, stop, you better save me, dear

When we played tag in grade school
You wanted to be it
But chasin' boys was just a fad
You crossed your heart you'd quit
When we grew up you traded
Your promise for my ring
Now just like back in grade school
You're doing the same old thing

Stop, the love you save may be your own
Darlin' take it slow or someday you'll be all alone
Better stop, the love you save may be your own
Darlin' look both ways before you cross me
You're heading for a danger zone

I'm the one who loves you
I'm the one you need
Those other guys will put you down
As soon as they succeed
They'll ruin your reputation
They'll label you a flirt
The way they talk about you
They'll turn your name to dirt
Oh

Isaac said he kissed you
Beneath the apple tree
When Benjie held your hand
He felt electricity
When Alexander called you
He said he rang your chimes
Christopher discovered
You're way ahead your time

Stop, the love you save may be your own
Darlin' take it slow or someday you'll be all alone
Better stop, the love you save may be your own
Darlin' look both ways before you cross me
You're heading for a danger zone

Hold on Hold on
Hold on Hold on
"S" is for save it
"T" is for take it slow
"O" is for oh no
"P" is for please
Please don't go

The love you save may be your own
Some day you may be all alone
Stop it
Save it, baby
You better stop
The love you save may be your own
Please, please
Or some day, some day, baby
You'll be all alone
I'm the one who loves you
I'm the one you need
Those other guys will put you down
As soon as they succeed

Stop the love you save may be your own
You better stop it, stop it, girl
Or someday you'll be all alone

The way they talk about you
They'll turn your name
Turn your name to dirt

Stop the love you save may be your own,
Don't you know, don't you know stop baby you'll be all alone
Those other guys will put you down
As soon as they succeed
