Gotta be Patient

I wanna be close to my real friends
And quite honestly, there are just a few of them
I'm not exactly an asocial person
But, I won't waste much time pleasing substandard versions
People either pull you down, don't care enough or have good intentions
For the ones rooting for me, I make all kinds of exemptions
But, I no longer put much thought into judgement and condescention
I value the criticism and advice of those I believe have kindness and wisdom

I wanna see only my true friends
The ones who are real gems
Some, I'm not frequently in touch with
To some, I reveal the worst sins I've comit
I prefer communicating with like-minded people
But, there are some others who still fit into my circle
As long as they can be slightly reasonable
And not criticize me or be judgemental

I wanna be in the company of my friends
Who aren't viewing me with various lens
My success, belongings, and home
Or the things that I do or own
By the tags displayed on my bags
If I'm wearing Ellie Saab or am clothed in rags
I count only a handful
But those souls are beautiful

I only consider a few to be close friends
They go beyond meetups and trends
They're etched in my heart forever
Forget them, will I never
But, in order to find the ones who are true
You may have to go through hard times too
But, that's when these gems shine the brightest 
Never forget the ones who stood by your during your test

I already know who my friends are
I've discovered things as I came this far
And although I really want to thank them
I'm gonna have to be patient
And wait for the right situation
Until then, I'll enjoy the climb, this confination
So I gotta be patient
In this stage that's nascent

Gotta Be Patient – Michael Buble, Barenaked Ladies & Sofía Reyes

This song was released about a year ago during peak moments of the lockdown. I believe the singers/songwriters wished to instill hope and encourage patience among people longing to get out and meet their friends.

One, two, three
Ooh, wap, wap
Ooh, wap, wap
Ooh, ooh, ooh

I just wanna see my friends
I wanna walk the street again
But I gotta be patient
So let’s enjoy this confination

I just wanna feel your love
‘Cause Instagram is not enough for me
So I gotta be patient
Let’s enjoy this confination

And every day we’ll sing a song
To make you dance
Until this ends

I just wanna see my friends
I wanna walk the streets again
So I gotta be patient
Let’s enjoy this confination

Si, tienes ganas de salir
Lo siento pero no
Tienes que quedarte ahí
Pero cuando canto esta canción
Ay, me brilla el corazón
Y me siento muy feliz

And every day we’ll sing a song
To make you dance
Until this ends

I just wanna see my friends
I wanna walk the streets again, again
But I gotta be patient
So let’s enjoy this confination

Every night and every day (so I gotta be patient)
Let’s enjoy this confination
Woah-ooh-woah, ooh, ooh
I gotta be patient (I gotta be)
So let’s enjoy this confination, ooh

    One Truly Responsible For Bringing Christmas Again to Whoville…
