You wait
You wait
You wait for summer,
Then you wait for rain
You wait
You wait
You wait for darkness then you wait for day
Yeah, you wait
You wait
You wait

And she said patience, patience, darling
Patience, patience, it will come

You wait
You wait
You wait for August,
Then you wait for May
You wait
You wait
You wait to get up,
Then you wait to play
You wait
You wait
You wait for someone that'll make the waiting worth the wait
You wait
You wait
You wait

And she says patience, patience, darling
Patience, patience, it will come

    General CommentIt's not "Car", but that's an impossible standard..

    This is up there among my favorite songs from the new album though. I love that idea that places true satisfaction as something that is never reached..

    This reminds me a lot of Isaac Brock's stuff, namely "The World at Large". Good song.

    General CommentGreat song. I believe it's "something that'll make the waiting worth the wait" though, not someone.

    General CommentI love this song! It's pretty much about never truly being satisfied with anything... especially in a romantic relationship

    General CommentYou wait, You wait,
    You wait for summer then you wait for rain,
    You wait, You wait,
    You wait for darkness then you wait for day,
    You wait, You wait, You wait,

    And she says patience darling,
    patience, patience, it will come

    You wait, You wait,
    You wait for Autumn then you wait for May,
    You wait, You wait,
    You wait together, then you wait to play
    You wait, You wait,
    You wait for something that’ll make the waiting worth the wait,
    You wait, You wait,

    And she says patience darling,
    patience, patience, it will come

    General CommentI am pretty sure they have sampled and messed with the sounds from an ultrasound machine, it is clearly the sound of blood rushing through a heart valve at the end. They are waiting for an act of God which is beautifully played out in the climactic ending.

    General CommentI was having a conversation with my compadre about how people always want the opposite of what they have. This is my new favorite song.

    General CommentLike most BTS songs there's a simple theme and ambiguity embedded in the lyrics so it could mean just about anything. Having said that, it seems like it's a song to a child, especially with the August and May references...the two months kids get out and have to go back to school. It's a lesson kids are taught early but have to keep relearning throughout life.

    General Commentgood point, supposablethumbs. I hadn't thought of that but it makes perfect sense. You wait to grow up, you wait for what you want, but just be patient.
