Billie Holiday - "Body Soul" lyrics

Johnny w. green / edward heyman / robert sour / frank eyton

Youre making me blue

All that you do

Seems unfair

You try not to hear

Turn a deaf ear

To my prayer

It seems you dont want to see

What you are doingg to me

My arms are waiting to caress you

And to my heart they long to press you, sweet heart

My heart is sad and lonely

For you I cry

For you, dear, only

I tell you I mean it

Im all for you

Body and soul

I spend my days in longing

And wondering its me youre wronging

Why havent you seen it

Im all for you

Body and soul

I cant believe it

It hard to conceive it

That youd turn away romance

Are you pretending

Dont say its the ending

I wish I could have one more change to prove, dear

My life a hell youre making

You know Im yours for just the taking

Id gladly surrender

Myself to you

Body and soul

Lifes dreary for me

Days seem to be long as years

Ive looked for the sun

But can see none

Through my tears

Your heart must be like a stone

To leave me like this alone

When you could make my life worth living

By taking what Im set on giving, sweet heart

My heart is sad and lonely

For you I cry

For you, dear, only

I tell you I mean it

Im all for you

Body and soul
