About this tab version
First version. Most guitar parts tabbed out for 2 players. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Artist: Alter Bridge 
Song: Losing Patience, from "The Last Hero"
Tuning: Drop Db/C# 
Tabbed by: jjhand

This main riff reminds me of "White Knuckles" in some ways, but has a groove beat similar 
to Mastodon's "Tread Lightly". Good balance of the vocal melody & guitar riffs too. Please
rate & comment.

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Sitting by the telephone
Waiting for what never comes
A chance to be the chosen one is all but gone

Arise the tide within your heart
A longing for another start
Far beyond the wretched place that you've come to know

[Chorus]
Are you finally losing patience
May you rise, your time has come
May you fight for what's been taken
Find your strength when there is none

[Verse 2]
A message from so long ago
Reminding you that you let go
Why did you throw it all away, it still haunts you so

But now you see what's come to pass
You're screaming for a second chance
If life is what you make of it then make it your own

[Chorus]
Are you finally losing patience
May you rise, your time has come
May you fight for what's been taken
Find your strength when there is none

Know your life is still worth saving
Can't you see how far you've come
If you find you're losing patience
Then just rise, your time has come
(Your time has come)

[Interlude]
This may be the only way you've got
A second chance to turn the page, move on
If you choose to wallow in these sorrows, what will be the cost
If you did and follow your tomorrow, find where you belong
Move on, move on

[Chorus]
Are you finally losing patience
May you rise, your time has come
May you fight for what's been taken
Find your strength when there is none

Know your life is still worth saving
May you fight for what's been taken

[Outro]
(Your time has come)
(If life is what you make of it then make it your own)
