Testo della canzone Impatience di 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…
