         G              D             C                 Am7
It's not time to make a change, just relax and take it easy
             G                 Em
You're still young that's your fault
           Am               D
there's so much you have to know
       G            D            C                Am7
Find a girl, settle down, if you want to, you can marry
        G        Em           Am    C  D
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy
      G                 Bm7        C                 Am7
I was once like you are now, and I know that its not easy
      G                 Em                    Am  C  D
to be calm, when you've found something going on
              G             Bm7           C                Am7
But take your time, think a lot, why think of everything you've got
             G               Em               D          G
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not

CHORUS #1:
        G          Bm             C                  Am7
How can I try to explain?  when I do he turns away again
     G               Em             Am    C  D
it's always been the same, same old story
         G              Bm         C          Am7
              G         Em     D       G
now there's a way and I know I have to go away
      D      C       G    G-C  riff  G-C riff
and I know I have to go

                          (away)       (away)
It's not time to make a change, just sit down and take it slowly
                  (I)               (know)               (I have)
You're still young, that's your fault, there's so much you have
   (to    make    this)
to go through
(decision)               (alone)
Find a girl, settle down, if you want to you can marry
         (no) 
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy

CHORUS #2:
        (stay)       (stay, stay)
All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside
     (why?)      (must)                (you go and make this de-
It's hard, but it's harder to ignore it
cision)                     (alone?)
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
