Father and Son

Father and Son

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?)

  1. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
