It's not time to make a change. Just relax. Take it easy.

This is a beautiful song that reflects on the seeming passage of time. It’s a heartfelt message from a father to his son. It’s unique in that it’s also a message from the son to the father which makes it so profound. There is an angst that is conveyed when the son is speaking to the sense of conditioning of the authority problem he experiences with his father. The lyrics go really deep and give the listener an opportunity to reflect on many of the issues and decisions that seem to face the human condition. 

Lyrics:

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? ‘Cause 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
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 they know not me
Now there’s a way and I know that I have to go away
I know I have to go
