Father And Son – [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Cat Stevens[/lastfm]
A song that touches so many of Cat Steven’s fans, “Father and Son” is a song about a father who doesn’t let his son break away. Cat sings from the perspective of both the father, and the son, changing pitches to distinguish the role he is speaking.
It’s not time to make a change,
Just sit down, 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 cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,
It’s hard, but it’s harder to ignore it.
If they were right, I’d agree, but it’s them you know not me.
Now there’s a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.
