Patient Love

Album: All The Little Lights (2012)
  • Got a pinch of tobacco in my pocket
    I'm not gonna roll it no I'm not gonna smoke it
    'Till we're staring at the stars and the rockets
    Twinkling in the silvery night

    Two sips of whiskey in the flask but I'm not gonna drink them
    I swear I'll make it last
    'Till we're drinking out of the same glass again

    And though the sand may be washed by the sea
    And the old will be lost in the new
    Well four will not wait for three
    For three never waited for two
    And though you will not wait for me
    I'll wait for you

    Got a Polaroid picture in my wallet
    I'm not going to tear it no I'm not gonna spoil it
    It's an unspoken heartbreak
    A heartbroken handshake I'll take with me where I go

    And three words on the tip of my tongue
    Not to be spoken nor sung
    Or whispered to anyone
    'Till I scream them at the top of my lungs again

    And though the sand may be washed by the sea
    And the old will be lost in the new
    Well four will not wait for three
    For three never waited for two
    And though you will not wait for me
    I'll wait for you
    I'll wait for you
    And I'll wait for you

    Got a pinch of tobacco in my pocket
    I'm not gonna roll it no I'm not gonna smoke it
    'Till we're staring at the stars and the rockets
    Twinkling in the silvery night Writer/s: MICHAEL DAVID ROSENBERG

  • Melandria from UsaI should clarify... That's the number of the letters in the words.
  • Melandria from UsaHe says "four will not wait for three, for three never waited for two, and though you will not wait for me....." The last part is key in translation. Four =love. 3= you. 2 =me. Love wont wait for you. You never waited for me.



    Could be wrong but that's how I see it.
