[Verse 1]
         F#             C#              B            G#m7
It's not time to make a change, just re-lax, take it easy,
               F#               D#m               G#m              C#
You're still young, that's your fault, there's so much you have to know,
        F#          C#           B             G#m7
Find a girl, settle down, if you want, you can marry,
        F#       D#m          G#m7   C#
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy

      F#                Bbm7       B                  G#m7       F#
I was once like you are now, and I know that it's not easy to be calm,
            D#m                   G#m7 C#              F#            Bbm7
When you've found something going on,    but take your time, think a lot,
              B                 G#m7              F#               D#m
Why, think of everything you've got, for you will still be here to-morrow,
         B          
But your dreams may not

        F#          Bbm7             B               G#m7
How can I try to ex-plain?    When I do , he turns a-way again!
     F#              D#m              G#m7      C#
It's always been the same,   the same old story,
         F#             Bbm7        B          G#m7
From the moment I could talk, I was ordered to listen,
              F#         D#m         C#      B  F#
Now there's a way, and I know that I have to go away,

All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,
     F#             D#m          G#m7      C#
It's hard, but it's harder to ig-nore it!
             F#           Bbm7           B                    G#m7
If they were right, I'd a-gree, but it's them, they know, not me,
              F#         D#m         C#      B  F#      C#     B       F#
