At the end of the day …. the best for last!!


Best

~~July 25, 2014~~ 

I was watching TV today. I saw a DVR’d recording of an episode of Oprah’s Master Class. This one presented a full hour of Vanessa Williams telling her life story. It was very interesting because I was aware of the scandal during her Miss America’s “reign”. Her selection, at the time it was a major step in the social games that we play. 

She described events during her childhood, discussed her family life, talked about her personal and sentimental life. 

This is one strong woman. She weathered that “scandal” and, like a phoenix, rose and battled life in a very sophisticated and classy manner. 

She lived, she experienced, she fought … and she’s still winning.

She’s save her best for last … and that time hasn’t come yet.

I remember this song very well. I want to share it’s music, lyrics and message with you tonight. Enjoy!

Save

Save The Best For Last” is a 1992 single written by Phil Galdston, Wendy Waldman and Jon Lind in March 1989.

It is considered Vanessa Williams’ signature song.

The lyrics’ redemptive themes resonated with Williams’ story, as she had put together a successful recording career following her earlier Miss America resignation scandal. The song is a ballad about a young female admirer of a single man who stands by and watches as the object of her desires goes through years of dating, before he finally unexpectedly decides to consummate a relationship with the singer.

Save The Best For Last” was not written specifically for Vanessa Williams. There were a number of other singers who were offered the song; they all turned it down. While recording her album The Comfort Zone, at the last minute, a song had to be replaced. Vanessa was played “Save The Best For Last“, and Vanessa said: “I can’t believe nobody wants this song. I have to have this song.”

Vanessa Williams – Save The Best For Last Lyrics

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 some how 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

But 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
La la la la la la la

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
Yeah ehh ehh
