  • Lyrics: Listen to one who knows, who's been there and back and knows where to go, what little I've learned I would like to share with you, come and hear. Follow your wildest dreams. Don't speak too loud, unless it's a scream. For your heart contains all the truth you will need go and set it free. But know when to pull your bets. Know when to smoke your last cigarette. And don't waste your breath, cause it's all that you get, go and tell all the people you love you'll never forget them. Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry, I've done enough of that for both of us. Don't lie, don't lie, don't lie, cause a real man don't do none of that. But I am old and you are young, so don't go take these words too strong, you're eighteen, soon you'll know what I mean. Learn how to play the blues. Don't watch the evening news, whatever you do, always believe there's still good in the world if you care to choose it. Careful with all the girls. But know there ain't nothing so sweet to adore. If you feel the tears come to swallow your eyes, lesser men than you for love have died. Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry, I've done enough of that for both of us. Don't hide, don't hide, don't hide, cause a real man don't do none of that. But I am old and you are young, and I speak a barbarous tongue. Those aren't my words, but, even so, they're true.
