Father & Son - Stevens

Father
It?s not time to make a change,
Just relax, 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 it?s 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.

Son
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.

Father
It?s not time to make a change,
Just sit down, 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.
(son-- away away away, I know I have to
Make this decision alone - no)
Son
All the times that I 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 you know not me.
Now there?s a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.
(father-- stay stay stay, why must you go and
Make this decision alone? )
