Father and Son – Ronan Keating & Yusuf Islam

Lyric:
“Father and Son”
Cat Stevens aka Yusuf Islam

FATHER
It’s not time to make a change,
Just sit down, take it easy.
You’re still young, that’s your fault,
There’s so much you have to go 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,
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, thats 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 Im happy.

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..
