lyrics

dear boy here is a letter
providing some advice
I can tell you who I am
I am old and not so wise
there are so many things
I'd like to tell
and rest assured
I know you well

15 is a joyous age
so much to learn
enjoy it while you can
it will never return

and please believe in yourself
have more confidence
follow your heart and
do what you want to do
try to stand more
on your own two feet
don't listen so much to
what other people say

stay in contact with your friends
you might need them and they may need you too

don't be so shy
loosen up
don't be so hard
on yourself
tough times
will pass by
it's part
of life

and please believe in yourself
have more confidence
follow your heart and
do what you want to do
please don't go to university
to study things you don't really like

take a year off by plane or by bike
ask for advice, people will be nice

dear me
I know you won't listen
but I don't lie
please give this a try
