Wait a While

Album: From Above (2013)
  • This was the first song that Rae Morris ever penned. She wrote it with her fellow Blackpool singer-songwriter Karima Francis, with whom she was in a gay relationship. "She taught me how to write, Morris explained to The Independent in a 2015 interview. "And the first song I wrote, 'Wait a While,' was a song that I wrote because she helped me to write it. It changed everything. And yeah, completely opened my life."

    "I don't say that I'm gay because I haven't been in a relationship with a girl since then," she added. "And I don't actually label my sexuality at all 'cause I don't actually know myself. I was 17 when I fell in love with her, and I fell in love with a songwriter – a force of nature."
