Two dozen other dirty lovers
Must be a sucker for it
Cry, but I don't need my mother
Just Hold My hand while I come
To a decision on it
Sooner or later
Your legs give way, you hit the ground
Save it for later
Don't run away and let me down
Sooner or later
You hit the deck, you get found out
Sooner or later
You run away, run away and let me down

Black air and seven seas and rotten through
But what can you do?
Sometimes I don't know how get on with you lot
Sometimes I don't try
I just now, now, now, now, now.....

Sooner or later
Your legs give way, you hit the ground
Save it for later
Don't run away and let me down
Sooner or later
You hit the deck, you get found out
Save it for later
Don't run away, don't run away and let me down

Two dozen other stupid reasons
Why we should suffer all this
I can't see teeth to find a reason
Just to him I come
To a decision on it

Sooner or later
Your legs give way, you hit the ground
Save it for later
Don't run away and let me down
Sooner or later
You hit the deck, you get found out
Save it for later
Don't run away, you run away and let me down

Why don't you hold me
Why don't you hold me and kiss me
Why Don't you hold me
Why don't you hold me and kiss me now
Save it for later baby
Save it for later honey
Don't run away, Don't run away and let me down
Don't run away, Don't run away and let me down

    It is about having secret (possibly unprotected) s* with man -- something which has happened countless times before. It is about sharing a homosexual (or bisexual) secret with a partner who might not support you after the relationship is inevitably exposed. Pete Townsend covered this song (originally performed by the English Beat) for a reason. He has been very open and public about his sexuality. He first explored the territory in his song "Rough Boys" from the album "Empty Glass": "Rough boys/come over here/I want to bite and kiss you". Also on this album is the song "And I Moved " which contains the lines "And I moved/And his hands felt like ice exciting/As he laid me back just like an empty dress". There is also, from the same album, the song "I Am An Animal" where Pete Townshend states: "I will be immersed/Queen of the fucking Universe". If you have any other doubts as to the meaning behind this song, you can “ save it, Felator”.
