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 life?"
It ain't giving up

Just growing up in stages
(Lay down no more)
Living 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
Taking us where we have gone

People ask me all the time
Showing up in ages
"So what you doin' with your life?"
Call it giving up

I'm just growing up in stages
(Lay down no more)
Living life in phases
Another season changes
And still my ways are aimless, I know
We're growing up in stages
And I'm running out of pages
Growing 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



David Valdés

Verse 1]
Has it really been that long?
Did I count the days wrong?
Did we just go back
All the way to step one?

[Pre-Chorus]
People ask me all the time
Every time the show's up
"So what you doin' with your life?"
It ain't giving up

[Chorus]
Just growing up in stages
Living life in phases
Another season changes
And still my days are shapeless

[Verse 2]
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

[Bridge]
[?]
Waiting far away, to come
Take us to the place
Taking us [?]

[Pre-Chorus]
People ask me all the time
Showing after ages
"So what you doin' with your life?"
Call it giving up

[Chorus]
I'm just growing up in stages
Living life in phases
Another season changes
And still my ways are aimless
We're growing up in stages
And I'm running out of patience
Growing up...

[Outro]
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

This song is like opening a door into the past and is super comforting. It's like a "Hey guys I'm back" type of song and is beautiful and different in the best ways. Cheers for Mr. Parker boys.

Bout to be 53 and I love this tune. It's not as bad as you think it is getting older.
