         Sol         Re             Do                 Lam
It's not time to make a change, just relax and take it easy
             Sol           Mim              Lam                  Re
You're still young that's your fault there's so much you have to know

Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy
         Sol                          Re       Do        Lam
I was once like you are now, and I know that its not easy

to be calm, when you've found something going on
         Sol               Re                      Do         Lam
But take your time, think a lot, why think of everything you've got
          Sol           Mim              Re               Sol
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not
 
Riff.
         Sol                    Re        Do            Lam
How can I try to explain?  when I do he turns away again
     Sol           Mim     Lam             Re
it's always been the same, same old story
         Sol                Re          Do            Lam
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen now
        Sol          Mim            Re      Do      Sol
there's a way and I know I have to go away
      Re      Do      Sol
and I know I have to go
 
Riff.
                   (away)       (away)
         Sol                  Re             Do            Lam
It's not time to make a change, just sit down and take it slowly

             Sol            Mim       Lam            Re
You're still young, that's your fault, there's so much you have to go through

         Sol         Re             Do                 Lam
Find a girl, settle down, if you want to you can marry
         (no)

         Sol                 Re             Do             Lam
All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside
     (why?)      (must)              (you go and make this decision)
     Sol             Mim          Lam           Re
It's hard, but it's harder to ignore it
 (alone?)
         Sol                 Re          Do                 Lam
If they were right, I'd agree, but it's them they know, not me
             Sol                 Mim            Re      Do      Sol
Now there's a way, and I know that I have to go away
      Re      Do      Sol
I know I have to go
