true love waits

I’ll drown my beliefs
To have you be in peace
I’ll dress like your niece
To wash your swollen feet

Just don’t leave
Don’t leave


I’m not living
I’m just killing time
Your tiny hands
Your crazy kitten smile

Just don’t leave
Don’t leave

And true love waits
In haunted attics
And true love lives
On lollipops and crisps

Just don’t leave
Don’t leave

Just don’t leave
Don’t leave

True Love Waits is one of the most requested live songs that Radiohead has in their catalog. The band have occasionally performed this song prior to the release of OK Computer and during the Kid A and Amnesiac tours but have yet to record it in a studio. May be called ‘Mortigi Tempo’ or ‘Awaits’.
