  • Aimless am I
    listless I'm the blunt of the knife
    Drifting to the corners of life, Ayla

    I could make something right
    Gentle with the kindness I'd like
    So often it's a trick of the light, Ayla

    And we wait for love
    in the shape of us
    Until the wait is over Under halcyon skies
    Until the wait is over for an innocent life

    It's a weight off my mind I could trust you
    You could tell me it's fine
    I could sew you a stitch and save nine, Ayla

    None more admired
    and out of soft focused desire
    From honeyed milk to funeral pyre, Ayla

    And we'll wait for love
    in the shape of us
    But the state of us, Daedalus
    The wait is over under halcyon skies
    The wait is over for an innocent life
    Until the wait is over, the wait is over. Writer/s: Felix White, Hugo White, Orlando Weeks, Rupert Jarvis Shepherd, Sam Doyle
