Its 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
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 be still be here tomorrow but your
Dreams may not

How can I try to explain, ‘cause when I do
He turns away again, its 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

Its not time to make a change, just sit down
Take it slowly, you’re still young, that’s your fault
There’s still 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
Its hard but its harder to ignore it
If they were right I’d agree, but its 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
