Father
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 be calm when you've found something going on.
But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything you've got.
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

Son
How can I try to explain, when I do he turns away again.
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.

Father
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.
(Son-- Away Away Away, I know I have to
Make this decision alone - no)

Son
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 They know not me.
Now there's a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.
(Father-- Stay Stay Stay, Why must you go and
make this decision alone?)

每次坐公車聽到ipod裏Cat Stevens這首歌,心中總是一陣悸動
想著在台灣的父親,他現在好嗎?
尤其現在有了個兒子正值青少年期,感觸更深。

歌詞裏的父親老是重複說著一些他自己的人生經驗
兒子則是發自內心地大吐苦水,然後告訴父親他必須離開,走自己的道路
結尾時父親對兒子的離開依依不捨...

這樣的情節,感覺每天就在世界各地上演
倒不是父親說的話沒有智慧,問題是在兩代之間沒有溝通。
男人一來就比較不會溝通表達,父子關係隨著孩子的成長獨立就可能漸漸生疏

和以誠的關係是否仍保持很好的互動呢?
除了錢財以外,我想要把什麼樣的東西傳給下一代?我常常這樣問自己
和孩子親密的關係需要用心投資
我不要只是個把麵包帶回家的父親
我要在生活中與孩子有互動
我要孩子不管幾歲都可以很放心的把喜怒哀樂跟我傾訴
我要當一個容易親近的老爸啦
