Saving all my love for you
by Tom Waits
It´s too early for the circus, it´s too late for the bars, no one´s sleepin´
but the paperboys, and no one in this town is makin´ any noise, but the dogs
and the milkmen and me.
the girls around here all look like cadillacs, no one likes a stranger here,
i´d come home but i´m afraid that you won´t take me back, but i´d trade off
everything just to have you near.
i know i´m irresponsible and i don´t behave, and i ruin everything that i
do, and i´ll probably get arrested when i´m in my grave, but i´ll be savin´
all my love for you.
i paid fifteen dollars for a prostitute, with too much makeup and a broken
shoe, but her eyes were just a counterfeit, she tried to gyp me out of it, but
you know that i´m still in love you.
don´t listen to the rumors that you hear about me, cause i ain´t as bad as
they make me out to be, well i may lose my mind but baby can´t you see, that
i´ll be savin´ all my love for you.
