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 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

How can I try to explain, when I do, he turns away again
It's always been the same, the 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 cried, keepin' 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
