Patience
Tame Impala Lyrics


Has it really been that long?
Did I count the days wrong?
Did we just go 'round and 'round
All the way to step one?

They would ask me all the time
Every time the show's up
"So what you doin' with your life"
It ain't givin' up

Just growin' up in stages
(Lay down, low down)
Livin' life in phases
Another season changes
And still my days are shapeless

It's always, "Drive straight, don't be late"
'Cause time waits for no one
I should be flying straight, with no delay
'Cause time takes from everyone

I've been waiting here
Waiting for the day to come
Take us to the place
Takin' us where we have gone

They would ask me all the time
Showin' up in ages
"So what you doin' with your life?"
Call it givin' up

I'm just growin' up in stages
(Lay down, low down)
Livin' life in phases
Another season changes
And still my ways are aimless, I know
We're growin' up in stages
And I'm runnin' out of pages
Growin' up

It's always, "Drive straight, don't be late"
'Cause time waits for no one
I should be flying straight, with no delay
'Cause time takes from everyone

Has it really been that long?
Did I count the days wrong?
Did we just go back at all
All the way to step one?

People ask me all the time
Every time the show's up
"So what you doin' with your luck?"
It ain't givin' up

Just growin' up in stages
(Lay down no more)
Livin' life in phases
Another season changes
And still my days are shapeless

I should be flying straight, don't be late
'Cause time waits for no one
I should be flying straight, don't be late
'Cause time takes from everyone

I've been waiting here
Waiting for the day to come
Take us to the place
Takin' us where we have gone

They would ask me all the time
Showin' up in ages
"So what you doin' with your luck?"
Call it givin' up

I'm just growin' up in stages
(Lay down no more)
Livin' life in phases
Another season changes
And still my ways are aimless, I know
We're growin' up in stages
And I'm runnin' out of pages
Growin' up

I should be flying straight, don't be late
'Cause time waits for no one
I should be flying straight, don't be late
'Cause time takes from everyone

What it is mean? He growing up in stages, meaning he grow up doing live shows? Stage being the actual stage

Moment of silence because Patience didn't make it on the album

Slumbr Tracks

@Revealing Storm Dissapointed with the Album? I have a feeling you will change your mind over the years to come.

“The Moment” of silence

ARRGHHH

@Cambaudio Do you still think The Slow Rush is an amazing album? Its just really... average. There's a couple good tracks but its just genuinely not all that interesting. I'd be interested to see if your opinion has changed.
