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

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

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

Away, away, away, I know
I have to make this decision alone – no

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

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. I lost my dad on September 21 2020 it was hard for are family we came back from Atlanta Georgia to visit he passed away in his chair then we buried him I played this it made it more harder for me

  6. 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.

  7. 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. 🥀♥️

  8. 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.
