From BEVERLY HILLS 90210: THE SOUNDTRACK
Written by Diane Warren

In the early nineties, “Beverly Hills 90210” was the #1 television series. It quickly became a huge marketing triumph and worldwide phenomenon. In 1992, during its third season, the series’ producers decided to release a soundtrack album that included music from the show. “Beverly Hills 90210: The Soundtrack” was a nice pop collection filled with stuff that would attract the same audience that was watching the show week after week. The bulk of the album is made of light, danceable tunes performed by Paula Abdul, Color Me Badd and Jeremy Jordan. There are also two great adult contemporary ballads; “Time To Be Lovers” performed by Mike McDonald and Chaka Khan plus “Love Is” performed by Vanessa Williams and Brian McKnight.
Another winner on the album is “Saving Forever For You,” beautifully sung by Shanice. This dreamy ballad was written by Diane Warren and produced by David Foster. It perfectly mixes Shanice’s appeal among the young audiences with Foster’s golden touch for mainstream radio. It’s no wonder this lovely ballad became a #4 hit on Billboard’s Hot 100 and a top twenty on the R&B charts. Foster’s production is the usual state of the art affair with great attention to the singer’s five-octave voice that shines on this one. “Saving Forever For You” was also certified gold and, together with “I Love Your Smile,” is probably the most memorable song of Shanice’s career.

Lyrics

Hoo…ooh…

I’ve never been so sure
About anything before
But this loving feeling
Gonna be a feeling I feel forever more

Looking in your eyes
Tomorrow’s all I see
Long as there’s forever, baby
I will always be

Saving forever for you, baby
You are the only one
I’ll ever give forever to
Love for a lifetime won’t do, baby
Wanna always stay together
So I’m saving forever for you

Ho…oh…oh…oh…

You’ll be my world
As long as there’s a world turning ‘round
And you’ll be my heaven
Baby, till the heavens all come falling down [All come falling down]

Look inside my heart [Oh, yeah]
Love is all you’ll see
Loving you forever, baby
Living just to be

Saving forever for you, baby
You are the only one
I’ll ever give forever to
Love for a lifetime won’t do, baby
Wanna always stay together
So I’m saving forever for you

Forever I’ll be loving you
Long as time passes by
I’ll be there beside you, ho
Through it all, I’ll be standing by you

Looking in your eyes
Tomorrow’s all I see
Long as there’s forever, baby
I will always be
Needing you here with me

Saving forever for you, baby
You are the only one
I’ll ever give forever to
Love for a lifetime won’t do, baby
Wanna always stay together
So I’m saving forever, saving forever for you

Saving forever (Yeah…) for you (Hoo…ooh…ooh…)
You are the only one
I’ll ever give forever to (You are the only one)
Love for a lifetime won’t do, baby (Hey…ey…ey…)
Wanna always stay together
So I’m saving forever, saving forever for you

Saving forever for you (Hoo…ooh…ooh…ooh…)
You’re the only one
I’ll ever give forever to (I’ll ever give forever to)
Love for a lifetime won’t do
