作詞:Cat Stevens    作曲:Cat Stevens

It's not time to make a change
還未到需要做出任何改變的時刻
Just relax--take it easy
放輕鬆,無須看待這麼重
You're still young--that's your fault
你尚且年輕還有好長的路,也正好是你的不足
There's so much you have to know
還有好多的事在前方等著你去發掘

Find a girl, settle down
找個女孩,並安定下來
If you want, you can marry
如果你願意你也可以訂下兩人的永恆誓約
Look at me--I am old
看看我,我雖老
But I'm happy
但我很滿足

I was once like you are now
我也曾有像你如今的風華歲月
And I know that it's not easy
我也知道那不是輕易的事
To become when you've found
當你在發現前方
Something going on
有事情等待著你

Take your time--think a lot
慢慢來,多想一下
Think of everthing you've got
想想自己擁有的全部
For you will still be here tomorrow
因為明日你依然將倚立在這裡
But your dreams may not...
但你的夢想也許已隨風而逝

How can I try to explain?
我該如何試著解釋
When I do--it turns away again
每當我嘗試時它一次又一次的轉身離去
And it's always been the same
每一次的嘗試都是一如往常
Same old story
重蹈覆轍
From the moment I could talk
從我可以開口的那一刻起
I was ordered to listen
我就已經被冠上聆聽的命運
Now there's a way, and I know
現在我已尋至我的方向,我也知道
That I have to go away
就是我必須走了
I know, I have to go...
我知道我該起程了

I was once like you are now
我也曾有像你如今的風華歲月
And I know that it's not easy
我也知道那不是輕易的事
To become when you've found
當你在發現前方
Something going on
有事情等待著你

But take your time--think a lot
但慢慢來,多想一下
Think of everthing you've got
想想自己擁有的全部
For you will still be here tomorrow
因為明日你依然將倚立在這裡
But your dreams may not...
但你的夢想也許已隨風而逝

All the times, that I've cried
每當我哭泣
Keeping all the things I knew inside
我將所知之事深藏在心
And it's hard
雖然困難
But it's harder to ignore it
但更難的是忽視它
If they were right--I'd agree
如果他們是對的我將願意承認
But it's them--they know
但他們知道那是他們的經歷
Not me. Now there's a way, and I know
不是我。現在我已尋至我的方向,我也知道
That I have to go away
就是我必須走了
I know, I have to go.
我知道我該起程了
