"Patience" as written by John Shanks, Gary Barlow and Howard Donald....
Just have a little patience
I'm still hurting from a love I lost
I'm feeling your frustration
That any minute all the pain will stop

Just hold, me close
Inside, your arms, tonight
Don't be to hard on my emotions

'Cause I
Need time
My heart is numb has no feeling
So while I'm still healing
Just try
And have a little patience

I really wanna start over again
I know you wanna be my salvation
The one that I can always depend
I'll try to be strong, believe me
I'm trying to move on
It's complicated but understand me

'Cause I
Need time
My heart is numb has no feeling
So while I'm still healing
Just try
And have little patience yeah
Have a little patience yeah

'Cause the scars run so deep
It's been hard, but I have to believe

Have a little patience
Have a little patience

Ho 'cause I
I just need time
My heart is numb has no feeling
So while I''m still healing
Just try
And have a little patience
Have a little patience
My heart is numb has no feeling
So while I'm still healing
Just try
And have a little patience

    General CommentI love this song. I love the idea of "Patience" and how the song could be used to describe being patient with a lover, a friend, yourself, in fact the whole god damn world.
    Well done Take That (especially Gary Barlow)
    And the vocals wow ... what a range from Gary. Have you ever tried to sing along to it I obviously don't have Garys talents because I can belt out most of the song then get all squeaky at "Cause I need time".
    Its embarassing how squeaky I get thank god noone is listening !

    General CommentThis song is about just taking time to think about things and obviously having patience. I heard this song live and it is fucking amazing. It sounds identical to the recorded song. This song is definitly one of the better performed songs out there

    General Commenti started by hating this song, cause it seemed just like another boy band story... but after losing a guy i thought i was in love with, all these guys started popping out of nowhere, asking me if i wanted them in my life. and none of them was patient :P but now i'm fine, so i listen to it to remember the bad days :)

    General CommentI heard Take That talking about the meaning of this song, and they said that it's about a guy coming out of a relationship and having someone else interested in him. Even though he wants to move on and be with this girl, he's hurting from what he's been through and he's asking for a bit of time to get his head sorted out.

    I think this is so refreshing. Too many people (including me) jump from relationship to relationship, scared of missing chances if they wait too long. I could have done with singing this song when my last relationship broke up to the guy I'm seeing right now!

    General CommentI agree with ireneXY, lovely song, vocals done really well. The real vocal genius can be realised only when you try singing it yourself. Ouch.....my throat.

    Omg this is freaky coz these lyrics fit perfectly with what a guy is telling me at the moment. I actually sat down and listened to the lyrics ansd was creeped out by how much this song matched his feelings

    General CommentThis song is amazing
    take that are cheesy but I like this song (the only one)
    I can relate, cos it can be hard coming out of one and feeling so betrayed
