Father and Son

Father and Son - Cat Stevens

It’s not time to make a change, just relax and take it easy 
You’re still young that’s your fault; there’s so much you have to know 
Find a girl, settle down, if you want, you can marry 
Look at me, I am old, but I’m happy 

I was once like you are now, and I know that its not easy 
to be calm, when you’ve found something going on 
But take your time, think a lot, why think of everything you’ve got 
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not 

How can I try to explain? when I do he turns away again 
it’s always been the same, same old story 
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen 
now there’s a way and I know that I have to go away 
I know I have to go 

It’s not time to make a change, just sit down and take it slowly 
You’re still young, that’s your fault, there’s so much you have to go through, 
find a girl, settle down, if you want you can marry 
Look at me, I am old, but I’m happy 

All the times that I’ve cried, keeping all the things I knew inside 
It’s hard, but it’s harder to ignore it 
If they were right, I’d agree, but it’s them they know, not me 
Now there’s a way, and I know that I have to go away 
I know I have to go
