Don't be so convinced of your right
to be who you want to or do what you like.
I'm sure you'll one day see the light,
but 'til then, just hang tight.

Don't say "no," don't say "yes."
Better let it go, better shoot for less.
I don't know, but I'll guess
that you feel alone when you give your best.

That glint in your eye's nearly gone.
You gave it a good fight, it's time to move on.
Embrace what you've been all along.
Hey, there, there - now what's wrong?

Don't say "no," don't say "yes."
Never let it show that you second guess.
Don't say "no," don't say "yes."

Recalling the way I was then,
struggling toward an impossible end,
I hearken the urge of a friend,
"It's time now to say 'when'."

Don't say "no," don't say "yes."
Fall into the flow, notice how they dress.
Take it slow, pass the test.
You'll be trained to grow just like all the rest.
Don't say "no," don't say "yes."
