Father and Son

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

I think of everything you’ve got

For you will still be here tomorrow

But your dreams may not.

How can I try to explain

When I do he turns away again

And 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.

Cat Stevens, 1970.
