Patience Lyrics

“Patience” stands out as a heartfelt ballad by the American rock band Guns N’ Roses. Released in April 1989 as the fourth single from their second studio album, G N’ R Lies, it climbed to number four on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, marking the band’s second top-five hit. Crafted by lead singer Axl Rose and guitarist Slash, the song delves into the challenges of sustaining a relationship amidst difficulties. Its lyrics convey a mix of yearning and despair, yet a subtle optimism suggests that, in the end, things might fall into place.

Patience Lyrics


One, two, one, two, three, four

(Whistling the melody)

[Verse 1]

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…

[Verse 2]

Oooh, 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 an’ 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 an’ I’ve got what it takes to make it
We won’t fake it
Aw, I’ll never break it
‘Cause I can take it

[Guitar Solo]


(Little patience, hm yeah, ooh yeah)
(Need a little patience, yeah)
(Just a little patience, yeah)
(Some more patience)
I’ve been walkin’ the streets at night (Yeah)
Just tryin’ to get it right (A little patience)
It’s hard to see with so many around (Yeah)
You know I don’t like bein’ stuck in the crowd (Could use some patience)
An’ the streets don’t change, but maybe the names (Yeah)
I ain’t got time for the game ’cause I need you (Gotta have more patience)
Yeah-Yeah, but I need you (Yeah)
Ooh, I need you (All it takes is patience)
Ooh-wah, I need you (Just a little patience)
Ooh, this time (Is all you need)
