Saving All My Love For You Lyrics

by Tom Waits

Its too early for the circus, its too late for the bars
Everyones 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 looks like Cadillacs
And no one likes a stranger here
Id come home but Im afraid that you wont take me back
But Id trade off everything just to have you near

I know Im irresponsible and I dont behave
And I ruin everything that I do
And Ill probably get arrested when Im in my grave
But Ill 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 Im still in love with you

Dont listen to the rumors that you hear about me
'Cause I aint as bad as they make me out to be
Well, I may lose my mind but baby, cant you see
That Ill be savin all my love for you
