Cat Stevens – 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 you dreams may not

(Son)
How can I try to explain,

‚cos 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

(Instrumental)

(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)
All the times that I’ve 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 they know, not me
Now there’s a way and I know that I have to go away
I know, I have to go

-Für meine Söhne-
(auch wenn die es wohl niemals lesen werden. Ist ja englisch, und Englisch können heisst Vokabeln lernen und Vokabeln lernen ist wohl doof)

Flattr this!
