1. It's not time to make a change, just relax and take it easy,

                       C                        Am

    you're still young that's your fault,

                       Dm                         G

    there's so much you have to know.

                 C              G                  F                  Dm

    Find a girl, settle down, if you want you can marry,

                 C           Am              Dm        - G

    look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.

 

               C                          G                 F                      Dm

2. I was once like you are now, and I know that it’s not easy,

               C                           Am                      Dm           - G

    so be calm, when you've found something going on.

                           C                  G               F                          Dm

    But take your time, think a lot, think of everything you've got,

                        C                    Am                        G               C

    for you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

3. How can I try to explain ?  When I do he turns away again,

          C                        Am                      Dm     - G

    it's always been the same, same old story.

                       C                    G               F             Dm

    From the moment I could talk, I was ordered to listen,

                            C               Am            G         C

    now there's a way and I know that I have to go away,

          G       F         C

    I know I have to go.

4. It's not time to make a change, just sit down and take it slowly,

                       C                         Am

    you're still young, that's your fault,

                     Dm                                 G

    there's so much you have to go through.

5. All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,

           C                 Am             Dm     - G

    it's hard, but it's harder to ignore it.

                        C                G                  F                          Dm

    If they were right, I'd agree, but it's them they know not me,

                             C              Am            G         C

    now there's a way and I know that I have to go away,

          G       F         C

    I know I have to go.
