Fiona Apple – Father And Son lyrics

(With Johnny Cash - Cat Steven Cover)

Johnny Cash :
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.

Fiona Apple & Johnny Cash :
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.

Johnny Cash :
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.

Fiona Apple & Johnny Cash :
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.
