Guns N' Roses - Patience

-1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4
-Whistle-
She'd 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 now

Sad woman, take it slow
It'll work itself out fine
All we need is just a little patience
Sad sugar make it slow it'll come together fine
All we need is just a little patience
(Patience)
Mmmm, yeah

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

Sad woman take it slow and things will be just fine
You and I'll just use a little patience
Sad 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
(Guitar solo)
(Whistle)
*Little patience, mmm yeah, mm yeah
Need a little patience, yeah
Just a little patience, yeah
Some more patience, (this is where main vocals comes in) yeah
Some more patience, yeah
Gotta ha patience, yeah
All it takes is patience
(*background vocals)

(Main vocals)
I've been walking the streets tonight
Just trying to get it right
It's hard to see with so many around
You know I don't like being stuck in the crowd
And the streets don't change
But maybe the name
I ain't got time for the game
Cause I need you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, cause I need you
Ooo I need you, whoa I need you
Ooooh, this time

"Patience" is a song by the American hard rock group Guns N' Roses, which appears on the album G N' R Lies and was released as a single in 1989. The song peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. The song is played using four acoustic guitars, and was recorded in a single session by producer Mike Clink. A music video of the song was shot and appears on the band's music video DVD, Welcome to the Videos. The music and lyrics were written by rhythm guitarist and founding member, Izzy Stradlin. The motivation for the track is generally accepted to be the troublesome relationship between Axl Rose and now ex-wife Erin Everly, though this was never stated in the album or interviews. It has been stated by the band that Izzy wrote the song about his ex-girlfriend Angela Nicoletti McCoy. Other points of view point to the video and suggest it is about failed relationships in general. In the video, the band members are situated in a hotel where they are the only constant images, and all other people are present for a moment, then fade away. More recently fans have taken another view on the song, as now Rose is the only remaining member from the original lineup. In an ironic and precognitive twist, the final parts of the video show Rose sitting alone in his home watching older Guns N' Roses videos in what appears to be a sad and lonely state.
