Father and Son / NielsīFamilie


Father and Son - Cat Stevens

Father:
Itís not time to make a change,
Just relax, take it easy.
Youíre still young, thatís your fault,
Thereís so much you have to know.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but Iím happy.

I was once like you are now, and I know that itís not easy,
To be calm when youíve found something going on.
But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything youíve 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.
Itís always been the same, same old story.
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen.
Now thereís a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.

Father:
Itís not time to make a change,
Just sit down, take it slowly.
Youíre still young, thatís your fault,
Thereís 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 Iím 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,
Itís hard, but itís harder to ignore it.
If they were right, Iíd agree, but itís them you know not me.
Now thereís 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? )
