lyrics

Wait, Be Patient

When I was a child I was told
It's better to give than to receive
But that was one message I wasn't ready to receive
What could they do with me?
They had to wait, be patient, and forgive me my sins
Cuz I didn't know what kind of world I was living in

I had me a friend, she gave me a gift
I didn’t say thanks, in fact, I barely noticed
What could she do, do you suppose,
With a man whose eyes were so closed?
She had to wait, be patient and forgive me my sins
Cuz I didn’t know what kind of world I was living in

So tell me,
Why? How come? Did I act so dumb?
And how could she be kind when I was so blind?
But it was the best that I could do at the time

I know a woman, she's fallin' apart
I think a hammer fell and cracked her china heart
And so I try to do what I know is good
When for the hundredth time she doesn’t do what she said she would
And so I wait, be patient and forgive her her sins
Because I know how hard a trip its been

I had a friend, she tried and tried
She tried to make the most of all those tears she cried
And so she let go of all the fear inside and said,
I got to wait, be patient and forgive this world it's sins
Because I know how hard a trip it's been
Oh yeah, I know how hard a trip it's been

And still we wonder,
Why? How come? Do people act so dumb?
And how can I be kind when they seem so blind?
But I think it's the best that we can do at the time
I think it's the best thing I can do at the time
Oh yeah, it's the best thing we can do at the time
