Patience – GUNS N ROSES

One, two, one, two, three, four Shed a tear ’cause I’m missin’ you
I’m still alright to smile
Girl, I think about you every day now
Was a time when I wasn’t sure
But you set my mind at ease
There is no doubt you’re in my heart now Said woman take it slow, and it’ll work itself out fine
All we need is just a little patience
Said sugar make it slow and we’ll come together fine
All we need is just a little patience (Patience)
Mm, yeah I sit here on the stairs
‘Cause I’d rather be alone
If I can’t have you right now, I’ll wait dear
Sometimes I get so tense but I can’t speed up the time
But you know love there’s one more thing to consider Said woman take it slow and things will be just fine
You and I’ll just use a little patience
Said sugar take the time ’cause the lights are shining bright
You and I’ve got what it takes to make it
We won’t fake it, I’ll never break it
‘Cause I can’t take it Little patience, mm yeah, mm yeah
Need a little patience, yeah
Just a little patience, yeah
Some more patience, yeah (I’ve been walking the streets at night, just trying to get it right)
A little patience, yeah (Its hard to see with so many around
You know I don’t like being stuck in the crowd)
Could use some patience, yeah (And the streets don’t change but maybe the names)
(I ain’t got time for the game ’cause I need you)
Gotta have more patience, yeah (Yeah, yeah but I need you)
All need some patience (Ooh I need you, whoa I need you)
Just a little patience is all you need (Ooh, this time, ah) “Patience” as written by Izzy Stradlin (usa 2) Slash Lyrics © Universal Music Publishing Group Lyrics and comments from

  • General CommentI think that it’s about a guy who is in live with a girl. The girl also has feelings for the guy but she’s still in another relationship. What the song is saying is that, because it was meant to be, they will eventually come together and all the issues will work themseles out.

    General CommentOk, the sons is about a guy waiting for a girl, probably because she is unattainable.
    I completely agree with that. In time it will all work out the way they want it to.

    General CommentSorry, Cory- I doubt Axl has any sexual problems.

    Anyway, I think the song is about a man and a woman who are so in love- but confused at the same time. Axl’s lyrics are telling the woman to just be patient and let things come in their own time. That everything will be fine.

    General CommentI love this song….

    I think it’s about two people who are in love but one is in a relationship and the other(Axel) is learning patience as to wait for this person because he reassures himself “Just a little patience,
    Need a little patience,

    General CommentBeing patient is so incredibly trying when you are DYING to be with the one you love…… What a great song. I’ve always loved it. I love the whistling!

    “You and I’ve got what it takes to make it.”

    Be patient and see what time brings…………………
