about

At first glance Patient is probably the most unassuming track on the album. But after a couple of listens it has become a favourite for many. It features a broad range of instrumentation from banjo to horns to djembe and just seems to tick along as it depicts the scene of a person consoling their friend.

lyrics

Your eyes fail to hide the way you see me
Only one so patient would stay to console
Rather than turning round to flee

Words of a kind heart still me to ease
Finally emerges a still humbled voice
And I’m enabled to speak

I’m convinced of what is right but I do wrong
Though I don’t cease to try
For so long no matter how I strive
My spirit tells of good that I should do
But I run as swift as I can go
Under the sun much farther than I’ve known

Outpoured frustration of one’s soul laid bare
Calming a gracious a smile that empowers
And arms that handle with care
Heartfelt and genuine the tears grip your cheek
Released from burdens borne for too long
At last this prisoner is free

But the root goes deeper than words
And the cure does not lie with me
My battle - the time on earth
‘Till with my father I go to be
