Impatience - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

Written by:Elvis Costello

How long do I have to wait

 

Before I can tell you the things I've been wanting to say

 

How long must I hesitate

 

I know it makes sense but it's hard for me to stay away

 

But if this is how it has to be

 

Maybe it's just a feeling

That I could name

But I'd probably best blame impatience

 

You can't miss - what you've never known

 

It's quite absurd how you started disturbing me so

 

Sometimes - when I am all alone

 

I lose my senses

I have no defences to go

 

But if this is how I lose my heart

 

Then I shall just embrace that

My pulse is racing still

I'm secretly thrilled

 

By the laughter that tumbled

And the tears that I spilled

 

As far as I know no one ever got killed

By impatience

 

Tell me - is there danger still

 

I took no heed so a word might as well be deed

 

Although - I'd really like to see you now

 

I'm almost certain it can't be accomplished with speed

 

So if this how I'll bide my time

 

Then I will set it down

Til we lose our caution

I'll honour your order

 

'Cos it's such sweet torture

 

To carry this torch

 

In the light of temptation

Beyond conversation and all expectation

 

Pausing a moment or two just mention

 

Impatience
