"Have a Little Patience"

Just have a little patience

I'm still hurting from a love I lost

I'm feeling your frustration

Any minute all the pain will stop.

I lost him so long ago, but when will I learn that he's gone?

The nerve of him to run off with that tramp Gaunt girl.

Didn't he know I loved him?

Just hold me close inside your arms tonight

Don't be too hard on my emotions.

My beau is getting angry with me.

"Cecilia, he's gone! When will you understand that?"


'Cause I

Need time

My heart is numb, has no feeling

So while I'm still healing

Just try and have a little patience.

I just need him to know that Tom was everything to me. Everything, and he ran away with a girl who had nothing. They whisper around the village that he had gotten her pregnant. I spit on these rumors, but something inside me whispers, "Could it be true?"

I really wanna start over again

I know you wanna be my salvation

The one that I can always depend.

"Cecilia, darling," my new husband murmured. "Just forget Tom Riddle. He was nothing but a bastard, running off on you. Come to me."

Can't he see that I cannot?

I'll try to be strong

Believe me I'm trying to move on

It's complicated but understand me.

I don't want to think about him everyday. Tom means nothing to me, nothing. Nothing.


'Cause the scars run so deep

It's been hard but I have to believe

Just have a little patience

My heart aches for him. His smooth black hair and cool blue eyes...

What has that tramp got that I have not?

Have a little patience

My heart is numb, has no feeling

So while I'm still healing

Just try and have a little patience

"Please!" I beg my husband, "I just need a little patience! I have loved and lost."

"I'll wait for you," he answered.

But I'll never forget Tom.
