A reflective and personal insight into a songwriters creative world. Delicate fingerpicked guitar and confessional lyricism underpins the poignancy of this song, taken from the album The Rock, the Sea, the Rising Tide released September 2019.
Look out for the catchy chorus, subtly orchestrated with cello and violins.

Patience

Patience is a virtue that I never had time to learn
I’ve been too busy making up for lost time to wait my turn
my best foot forward means the other one drags behind
and I’d be one step ahead of the game if I could only find
the starting line, who ho oh
the starting line.

but I’m just sitting here waiting for the lights to change
they’ve been stuck on red and I really need to know
why I’m just sitting here waiting for my life to change…to go

keeping up appearances is easy when you never get seen
I can run around this house wearing nothing but a stupid grin
and no-one really cares but still they need to criticise
and tell me what I ought to do if I really want a better life - a better life

but I’m just sitting here waiting for the lights to change
they’ve been stuck on red and I really need to know
why I’m just sitting here waiting for my life to change…to go

my best ideas come too fast to write them down
I got a novel in my head and a hundred songs kicking around
most of them will never see the light of day
but I’m much too insecure to ever throw them away

but I’m just sitting here waiting for the lights to change
they’ve been stuck on red and I really need to know
why I’m just sitting here waiting for my life to change…to go

I never follow fashion but that’s how you get to win
jumping on a bandwagon seems be the next big thing
but I wont ride in the back of a rusty car
doesn't matter where it’s going it’s never going to be that far from anything

but I’m just sitting here waiting for the lights to change
they’ve been stuck on red and I really need to know
why I’m just sitting here waiting for my life to change…to go
yes I’m just sitting here waiting for the lights to change
they’ve been stuck on red and I really need to know
why I’m just sitting here waiting for my life to change…to go
