The Maccabees - Ayla lyrics


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

The wait is over,
under halcyon skies
The wait is over,
for an innocent life

Until the wait is over
The wait is over
The wait is over
