LYRICS
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’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 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? No

  1. my father left us 2 years ago without even saying goodbye. i know that he is alive and living with a different family..

    if by any chance you will read this, i will never be like you.. thanks!

  2. I lost my dad in 2010 but he'll away be in my Heart .He was such a great father , grandfather I miss him so much this song always makes me think of my Dad I'm 62 yes old such a Beautiful man like somebody else said if your dad is alive call him hug him show him how much you appreciate him

  3. I just re-watched Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, with the whole Yondu scene. It makes me remember how my dad won't love me like that. I'm 13, I'm a trans kid, I use he/him. I know he won't accept me. I just want a good relationship with him. If he somehow ends up reading this, dad, I'm sorry. I know I'm probably not enough for your expectations, especially the fact I'm your first born kid. I try so hard, every day, to make you proud. I know your busy with your laptop stuff, but please try and listen to me when I say I don't mean to be a problem child. When you took me out back behind the pizza place and you were upset with me, I didn't have the ability to properly say what I was trying to say. I just want you to treat me how I did when I was little. When you took me to see Avengers: Age Of Ultron in theaters that Friday night. When we could have fun, before the pandemic, before everything bad happened.

  4. A great artist, started as a poyet and was seen and signed by Chris Blackwell of his then small recording studio, Ireland record's, the rest is history, brilliant, 🌌🌜

  5. We all have a story, and many of us can relate to this, maybe not when you are young, but when you get old it will all of a sudden sink in.

  6. This speaks volumes. The song is so relatable, it's scary.. in it's own way. My Mom told me when I was in grade school this is one of her favorites and reminded her of me.
    Mom, I get it, finally. I get it. 🥀♥️

  7. Father son relations are complicated. My father died from covid-19 within minutes that AM of 2021-04-24- he did not receive oxygen. I last saw him in Aug 2019 and was planning to have him with us here in US in Mar 2020 but covid. It is painful so painful- I saw his funeral 10000 miles away on zoom. I could not even say goodbye and I LOVE YOU last time. I love you, papaji. What is worse – i almost lost my mother from the wretched disease. She survived and is under my care now.
