"Saved The Best For Last" as written by Philip E. Galdston, Jon Lind and Wendy Waldman-parker....
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

    General CommentI think the lyrics talk about a situation where the woman (the singer) being in love with a man. The man, in the meantime, sees the woman as a close friend. Meanwhile, he goes out seeing various other women, finding that their relationships don't work out, and that the other women he sees don't really make him happy. Instead, he comes to the woman (the singer) to talk about his feelings, about how all the other women he sees don't really do it for him. Finally, he realizes that he's been looking in the wrong place and that the singer is the best match for him.

    General CommentI'm going to have to agree with Dinger on this one. My best friend is a girl, and just very recently I've realized that I want the two of us to be just more than friends. The only problem is that she is already in a relationship :(

    General CommentThe lyrics are so horrible, but being the person who has been waiting for that person to notice you would be horrible. It sounds like her interpretation is that he "saved the best for last", but maybe he just wants someone comfortable and she is available. A set-up for a broken heart if ever there was one.

    General CommentThis is one of the most beautiful love songs. Alexandra B on "American Idol" performed this beautifully.. I look at this song in a whole new perspective now.

    General CommentThe sound is pretty, but the lyrics are pretty horrible in my very humble opinion. Maybe I'm missing something but I can't stand them!

    General Commenti was in the exact same situation.. i really liked a guy and we were friends, so that's what he saw me as. it hurt to be like that, and whenever i heard this song it would always make me hope that one day things would change for me like they did in the song.. and believe it or not they did. after me liking him for a year and a half, something finally just changed and now we've been dating for over a year and are very much in love.. i love this song =)

    General CommentI put a good friend of mine through this situation explained in the song. I love this song, but it makes me feel bad every time i hear it.

    General CommentIronically and eeriely, that's how it was between my ex and I. We were friends at first (or barely, seeing as I got mad at him for failing to see me standing in front of him) and he had dated a lot of women-each one failing him one way or another. I was always popping up though, just being friendly...eventually, he finally asked me out and it was great-exactly like the song.

    Except, now we're broken off, so yeah...Whatever, maybe he'll find another person to 'save the best for last'.
