"I've Been Waiting For You" as written by Miri Ben-ari, Al L. Green, Willie Mitchell, Dexter Raymond Jr. Mills, P. Francis and John R. Stephens....
Promises are turning pale
Stars are bleaching
My wounds are still breathing

Fading away
Fading away

I'’ve been waiting for you to save my world
So why don’t you lick my soul
Get rid of my ghost

    General CommentI think she says "save my life" and not world.

    Still, this is a great song. Just sweeping with the everything involved inside of it. You can definitely tell that she learned as much as she could from working with Tricky during his creation of Vulnerable. Her whole EP (zer0Killed) just gives the nod that Trip-Hop isn't dead.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure she says "...my world", not "...my life".
    But sometimes I'm in doubt when she says "Get rid of my ghost", I keep listening "Get rid of my curse". :S
    This song is so beautiful. :)
