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
