Cat Stevens - Father and Son Original




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
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.

[padre]
non è il momento di fare cambiamenti,
rilassati e basta, prenditela comoda.
Sei ancora giovane, questo è il tuo problema,
c'è così tanto che devi conoscere,
trovati una ragazza, sistemati,
se vuoi puoi sposarti.
guarda me, sono vecchio, però sono felice


un tempo ero come tu sei ora, e so che non è facile,
stare calmo quando trovi qualcosa per andartene
ma prenditi il tuo tempo, pensa molto
perchè, pensa a tutto quel che hai.
domani tu sarai ancora qui, ma i tuoi sogni potrebbero non esserci




[figlio]
come posso provare a spiegargli? quando lo faccio lui si gira dall'altra parte
è sempre stata la solita vecchia storia.
dal momento in cui potevo parlare mi è stato ordinato di sentire
ora c'è una via, e io so che devo andare
io so che devo andare




[padre]
non è tempo per cambiamenti
solo siediti, prenditela con calma
sei ancora giovane, è questo il tuo problema
c'è così tanto su cui devi pensare
trovati una ragazza, sistemati
se vuoi puoi sposarti
guarda me, sono vecchio, ma sono felice




[figlio]
tutte le volte che ho pianto, tenendomi dentro tutto quel che sapevo
è difficile, ma è più difficile ignorarlo,
se avessero ragione, avrei accettato, ma il fatto è che non mi conosci,
ora c'è un modo e io so che devo andare via
io so che devo andare.
