intro=G

         G                D  

it's not time to make a change,

        C                

just relax, take it easy,

             G

you're still young

            Em                C               D

that's your fault, there's so much you have to know.

       G            D            C

find a girl, settle down, if you want you can marry.

        G        Em          C     D

look at me, i am old but i'm happy.

      G                 D

i was once like you are now,

        C                 

and i know that it's not easy

      G                Em              C         D

to be calm when you've found something going on,

              G              D

but take your time, think a lot,

      C                            

why, think of everything you've got

             G             D

for you will still be here tomorrow

          Am         G

but your dreams may not.

        G           D

how can i try to explain,

            C

'cause when i do he turns away again,

     G               Em             C       D

it's always been the same, same old story.

         G               D           C               

              G         D           Am      G 

now there's a way and i know that i have to go.

      D       C        G   

away, i know, i have to go.

(guitar solo)

         G              D      

it's not time to make a change,

     C                        

just sit down, take it slowly,

             G                  Em    

you're still young, that's your fault

           C                    D

there's so much you have to go through.

       G            D           C                   

find a girl, settle down if you want you can marry.

        G        Em         C      D

look at me i am old but i'm happy.

        G               D      

all the times that i've cried

        C                            

keeping all the things i knew inside,

     G              Em        C         D

it's hard, but it's harder to ignore it.

             G            D

if they were right, i'd agree,

         C                                  G

but it's them you know not me now there's a way,

      Em          Am      G        D        C       G  

and i know that i have to go away, i know i have to go.
