True Love Waits (5:03)

Cover of I Might Be Wrong: Live Recordings

From I Might Be Wrong: Live Recordings and 22 other releases

“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’.

When asked about the meaning of the line “I’ll dress like your niece,” Thom had this to say: “the difference between young and old when people start to dress sensible and act their age. this person is offering not to do that to keep the other. alles klarr?”

According to Thom, the line “On lollipops and crisps” is from an article he read: “I read an article about a child who was between 5-8 yrs old who was left on his/her own for a week in a house when his parents left on hoilday and he lived on lollipops and crisps. True”

“True Love Waits” was finally made available to fans who hadn’t already downloaded a bootlegged mp3 of the song in 11/2001, when they released the I Might Be Wrong - Live Recordings live album.

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