Patience Lyrics

One, two, one, two, three, four
(whistle)
Shed a tear 'cause I'm missin' you
I'm still alright to smile
Girl, I think bout 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...

    axl rose is the most bloomin' gorgeous rocker on the whole planet, or was 20 years ago. i love all their songs, but patience is just plain beautiful. i worship the acoustics, and the whistling solo is damn hot!!! anyone who doesn't love g'n'r is crazy! get in the ring!!!!!

    - Guinevre, Truro, England

    In addition to whole-heartedly agreeing with Guinevre, for me, Patience is about the relationship between myself and my Daughter, from conception into mutual adulthood and beyond. This song inspired me to name my daughter Patience. During her childhood, the street names changed in my immediate childhood neighborhood, (West of Market St. in Kirkland, WA). I feel very closely bonded and in tune with William/AXL Bailey/ROSE, aka WAR. Even though I have never met him, it is a dream of mine to shoot the breeze with him in person, ok and maybe a kiss.

    As many people have said this is a love song, yet knowing how the band behaved, this song has many elements about it that seem like could be a love song about drugs... Just throwing it out there.

    That any relationship takes work,& time. That he made mistakes, he rushed things with other people [ all the women getting in/out of the bed on the video ] now he realizes he's willing to wait for his true love & for things to work out between them.

    This is a love song. I think this is about a woman he just can not live without any more and will do whatever it takes with patience to get the woman in the end. Just takes things slow and all thing will work them selves out fine. and in the end "been walkn the streets at night, just tryn to get it right", this to me sounds like axl was trying to come up with a proposal. The entire song may be a proposal, as in we just got to haave a little patience.

    In patience axl is missing his love interest so he keeps telling himself that if they are willing to wait for each other that everything will work out in the end.
