Songfacts®:

  • Here, KSI reflects on times when he's needed patience while making changes to his life, like taking a break from social media.

    Need a little space to slow the brain
    I don't really wanna feel the pain


    And escaping a toxic relationship.

    Bridges burnin', I won't let you get to me
    Tables turnin', I don't need bad energy
  • Yungblud croons the chorus, singing about his need to keep persevering in the COVID era.

    I need a little bit of patience
    'Cause we been goin' through changes
    I need a little bit of patience
    Get out of crazy situations


    Yungblud said: "This song is about needing time to process what is going on around you, about needing a second to just exist and be. You don't have to know what's next, just try and be present every day. I think this is a message we can all relate to right now."
  • Polo G raps a guest verse in which he talks about running out of patience with all the heartbreaks and failed relationships he's endured throughout his life.
  • KSI, Yungblud, and Polo G wrote the song with Digital Farm Animals and Sam "S-X" Gumbley, both of whom collaborated with KSI on his previous single "Don't Play." The other songwriters are Diego Ave, Red Triangle, Yami, Matt Schwartz, Peter Jideonwo, and Yoshi.
  • Matt Schwartz also produced the track. A frequent Yungblud collaborator, his credits with the English rocker include "Machine Gun (F--k The NRA)," "Weird!" and "11 Minutes."
