patient lyrics – twin shadow

patient

you are adored
but you say you’re alone
like i’m nothing at all

that’s how you punish me
by always letting me fall

i built a sanctuary for your troubles and doubts
and there i pray for you
and now you look at me
like i wasn’t true

maybe you don’t want no one to find out
that i am kissing you
maybe you don’t want no one to find out
that i was the one taking love from you

i’m patient
i’m waiting
for you to give up everything
and say just what you mean
i am patiently waiting
for you to give up everything
and say just what you mean

i want to be adorned
by your lips and your hands
can’t seem to tell you this

when you *n*lyze
every single kiss

you tell me

“you’re just the same
boys will be boys
this was a game
and you don’t want no one to find out
that i was the one playing games with you”

i’m patient
i’m waiting
for you to give up everything
and say just what you mean
i am patiently waiting
for you to say just what you mean
and give up everything…
