"Patience Gets Us Nowhere Fast" as written by Sebu Simonian and Ryan Merchant....
I want it all and nothing less
I want it all, I want the best for you
I'm telling you the truth
You are the one that makes it real
Even the sunlight doesn't feel this good
Whoever said it could?

Patience, patience gets us nowhere fast
Patience, patience gets us nowhere

I want it all and nothing less
I want it all, I want the best for us
I'm telling you to trust
The world you see is on our side
Take a chance and take a ride with me
From sea to shining sea

Patience, patience gets us nowhere fast
Patience, patience gets us nowhere fast
I don't want my patience to last

Follow me, follow me somewhere
Follow me, follow me somewhere
Follow me, follow me somewhere out there
Follow me, follow me somewhere
Follow me, follow me somewhere
Follow me, follow me somewhere out there

I want it all and nothing less
I want it all, I want the best for you
I'm telling you the truth
You are the kiss I don't expect
Remind me never to forget my youth
I'll leave it up to you

Patience, patience gets us nowhere fast
Patience, patience gets us nowhere fast
Patience, patience gets us nowhere fast
Patience, patience gets us nowhere fast

    My InterpretationTo sum it up, I believe this song is about someone who wants to take their relationship to the next level with a potential lover. However, the lover is hesitant and doesn’t want to jump into the relationship. The person is trying to reassure their potential lover that it’ll be okay, and that they have the support of everyone. They want to let them know that everything they’re doing is for this person. They tell their potential lover that waiting around to see what happens will do them no good and he doesn’t want to wait forever. However in the end, they don’t want to force them to do anything and will leave their relationship in their hands.

    ///I want it all and nothing less. I want it all, I want the best for you. I’m telling you the truth. You are the one that makes it real, even the sunlight doesn’t feel this good. Whoever said it could?///

    -The singer is saying that he wants to be with his potential lover. He wants to confess that he wants to be with them no matter what. He doesn’t just want a part of them (could also be saying that he doesn’t want to be ‘just friends’ any more) but all of them. He believes that they’re the only person that can make him feel so good.

    ///Patience, Patience gets us nowhere fast///

    -He is saying that he could wait forever, or that they could be waiting forever, but it doesn’t do them any good. Waiting only prolongs their relationship and prevents them from going anywhere.

    ///I want it all and nothing less. I want it all, I want the best for us. I’m telling you to trust.///

    -His lover is probably hesitant of being with him. There is something holding them back — maybe some doubts. He wants to let them know that they can trust him.

    ///The world you see is on our side, take a chance and take a ride with me — from sea to shinning sea.///

    -He wants to let his potential lover that they have the full support of the world and that they can conquer the world together as long as the potential lover is willing to take that chance with him.

    ///Patience, patience gets us nowhere fast. I don’t want my patience to last///

    -It doesn’t do them any good to wait out on their relationship. He doesn’t want to wait any longer.

    ///You are the kiss I don’t expect. Remind me to never forget my youth. I’ll leave it up to you.///

    -He probably feels as though that his potential lover is the only one for him and reminds him of all the good in life. However he doesn’t want to force them to do anything against their will and will leave their relationship up in their hands.
