Lyrics! - written by Christian Ledwell

Hospital Patience

Please just try to make it plain
strange blood is pounding in my veins.

Face-down on the street with a mouth of broken teeth,
I shouldn’t have run mounting my retreat.
Never fired a gun and never caused a scene
make for the county line, get there before daylight comes.

Let me explain my bad idea again
I know your face, I know you’re not a friend.

No shame anymore, death in the afternoon.
Blood on skinny jeans, I swear that I was true.
A man without his hat, his angel’s got the flu
The remedy he knows he traces to an Irish king.

Through the night with hospital patience
Through the night with hospital patience
Like a saint, with hospital patience
Through the night with hospital patience

Let me explain my bad idea again
and stay with me until the very end
And take and take my ills away.
