  • Cardamom and jade as your eyes screamed
    On the night you showed your volcanic side
    And I'm afraid to need validation
    Waiting for the day when you finally try

    There are sandflies in the champagne
    You're closed off, I'm so drained
    But I sparkle in the rare case
    That you tell me I'm your sunray
    I'm starved of your affection
    You're crushed under the pressure
    But you won't change
    No, you won't change

    I don't wanna wait for you
    Don't wanna wait for you
    Don't wanna wait for you
    But I need you so I won't go
    I don't wanna wait for you
    Don't wanna wait for you
    I don't wanna wait for you
    But I need you so I won't go

    Tethered to the person you could be
    Re-reading our texts from the strawberry days
    Just give me a sign if you want me
    Just give me a sign if you wanna stay

    There's blue glass in the soft rain
    You're passive, I'm in pain
    But I sparkle in the rare case
    That you tell me I'm your sunray
    I am starved of your affection
    You're crushed under the pressure
    But you won't change
    No, you won't change

    I don't wanna wait for you
    Don't wanna wait for you
    Don't wanna wait for you
    But I need you so I won't go
    I don't wanna wait for you
    Don't wanna wait for you
    I don't wanna wait for you
    But I need you so I won't go

    And I usually know my strength
    But here I am at ninety degrees bent
    A metallic taste at the back of my throat
    Watch your deltoid flex as you cough on the phone
    And I've lost my grit and I'm in my head
    You're so withdrawn and I'm standing there
    Keeping wool over my eyes
    Keeping wool over my eyes

    I don't wanna wait for you
    Don't wanna wait for you
    Don't wanna wait for you
    But I need you so I won't go
    I don't wanna wait for you
    Don't wanna wait for you
    I don't wanna wait for you
    But I need you so I won't go
    I don't wanna wait for you
    Don't wanna wait for you
    Don't wanna wait for you
    But I need you so I won't go
    I don't wanna wait for you
    Don't wanna wait for you
    I don't wanna wait for you
    But I need you so I won't go Writer/s: Anais Marinho, Paul Epworth
