Cat Stevens / Yusuf Islam / Boyzone / Ronan Keating – Father & Son

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , , at 8:52 am by LynxLee


I think many people could remember the MTV of Ronan Keating ft. Yusuf Islam from my age group. For others, maybe you knew Cat Stevens version; regardless, this song is simply a masterpiece. Can you feel the care from these performers? Watch Cat Steven deliver the song and you’ll see the lyrics coming to life in your own heart.

Btw, some people might not know this; but Cat Stevens IS Yusuf Islam. (Reference: YouTube – Cat Stevens’ transition to Yusuf Islam)

Yusuf Islam (born Steven Demetre Georgiou; 21 July 1948), commonly known by his former stage name Cat Stevens, is a British musician. He is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, educator, philanthropist, and prominent convert to Islam.

It’s not time to make a change
Just relax–take it easy
You’re still young–that’s your fault
There’s so much you have to know

Find a girl, settle down
If you want, you can marry
Look at me–I am old
But I’m happy

I was once like you are now
And I know that it’s not easy
To become when you’ve found
Something going on

But take your time–think a lot
Think of everthing you’ve got
For you will still be here tomorrow
But your dreams may not…




It’s not time to make a change
Just relax–take it easy
You’re still young–that’s your fault
There’s so much you have to know

Find a girl, settle down
If you want, you can marry
Look at me–I am old
But I’m happy

I was once like you are now
And I know that it’s not easy
To become when you’ve found
Something going on

But take your time–think a lot
Think of everthing you’ve got
For you will still be here tomorrow
But your dreams may not…

How can I try to explain?
When I do–it 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…

It’s not time to make a change
Just sit down
and take it slowly
You’re still young–that’s your fault
There’s so much you have to go through

Find a girl, settle down
If you want, you can marry
Look at me–I am old
But I’m happy

All the times, that I’ve cried
Keeping all the things I knew inside
And it’s hard
But it’s harder to ignore it

If they were right–I’d agree
But it’s them–they know
Not me That I have to go away
