Patience Lyrics


by Viola. From Illyria.


VIOLA
SO SHALL I JOIN THE POTTED PLANTS
AND PERCH UPON YOUR SHELF FOR YEARS?
IMPRISONED NOT IN POT, BUT PANTS,
AND WATERING MYSELF WITH TEARS, WITH BRINE?
WITHERED BY THE SALT,
KNOWING THAT THE FAULT IS MINE.

PATIENCE...
A CHANGE WILL COME.
PATIENCE...
I MUST DEPEND UPON THE PENDULUM,
AND PRAY
A CHANGE WILL COME
SOMEDAY,
SOMEHOW.

YOU'D THINK THAT DRESSED THE WAY I AM,
I'D PLAY THE PART AND PLEAD MY SUIT.
BUT SINCE THIS SUIT OF MINE'S A SHAMM
DISCRETION SAYS I NEED BE MUTE.
AND OH... I COULDN'T BEAR TO BREACH YOUR TRUST.
WHILE I'M IN BREECHES THEN IT MUST BE SO.

PATIENCE...
IT'S ONLY TIME.
PATIENCE...
I'LL LET MY PASSIONS PLAY IN PANTOMIME.
ABIDE,
AND SPEAK MY LOVE
AS AN ASIDE.

DAY AFTER DAY, I HEAR YOU SPEAK
OF DREAMS THAT DON'T INCLUDE ME.
WILL THEY EVER INCLUDE ME?
EVEN AT NIGHT, IN MY OWN DREAMS,
I REACH FOR YOU AND YOU ELUDE ME.
ELUDE ME...
STILL YOU ELUDE ME.

PATIENCE...
I'LL HOLD YOU YET.
PATIENCE...
I'LL STAY AS STILL AS ANY SILHOUETTE
AND WAIT
AND LEAVE THE REST
TO FATE.
PATIENCE...
PATIENCE.
PATIENCE.

[Thanks to Sara for lyrics]
