Lyrics – Patience

We lingered down at the bay
And watched the daylight die away
I chased you down to the sea
For just a moment I was free

People, older people,
Smiled and turned away
I want you to stay
Tell me, why can’t you stay?
I want you

Something started that night
We were careless in a fight
One word started a flame
Became the poison in your veins

People, gentle people
Politely turned away
I want you to stay
Lost my patience that day
I want you

Tell me why can’t you stay?
Stay, stay, stay, stay

The plane is leaving today
Above the clouds, above the rain
To take you out of my sight
What if the fortune teller’s right?

People, certain people
Return and leave again
I want you to stay
Tell me, why can’t you stay?
I want you
