Body’s Rare/Wait All Night

I started writing with nothing in mind, and this took shape. Hopefully gonna record a rough track with my brother playing bass and me on some kind of percussion (egg shaker?). Think old school smooth jazz, and let the lyrics mess with your mind. (Any thoughts on title?)

Body’s rare
Folks are starin’
Don’t seem fair
This girl’s got eyes

Take her home
Take her clothes off
Take her soul
And what’s left inside

‘Cause Hell don’t wait
For angel signs
Words for saints
Ain’t what we hear

No, Hell don’t wait
For angel signs
Words for saints
Ain’t what we hear

Lie awake
Know she’s breathin’
By your side
Oh, by your side

Hear her fade
Slow surrender
By your side
Oh, by your side

Body’s cool
Heat’s a-fadin’
Beats don’t beat
An’ sighs don’t sigh

Walk all night
Sky is breakin’
One more star
Up in the sky

Hell don’t wait
For angel signs
Words for saints
Ain’t what we hear

No, Hell don’t wait
For angel signs
Words for saints
Ain’t what we hear

She’s so cold
Her lips gone blue
But you wait all night
You wait all night

You wait all night
You wait all night
