                That's The Way I've Always Heard It Should Be - from Carly's debut album 1971

Bm                            G
My father sits at night with no lights on
Bm                            G
His cigarette glows in the dark 
Dm7
The living room is still
Cmaj7            Am7       G
I walk by, no remark   
Bm                         G
I tiptoe past the master bedroom where
Bm                         G
My mother reads her magazines
Bm                         G
I hear her call sweet dreams
Cmaj7            Am7       G
But I forgot how to dream

F                          Em
But you say it's time we moved in together
Dm7                         Cmaj7
And raised a family of our own, you and me
F                                 Em
Well, that's the way I've always heard it should be
D
You want to marry me, we'll marry

Bm                            G
My friends from college they're all married now
Bm                            G
They have their houses and their lawns
Dm7
They have their silent noons
Bm                         G
Tearful nights, angry dawns
Bm                         G
Their children hate them for the things they're not
Bm                         G
They hate themselves for what they are
Bm                         G
And yet they drink, they laugh
Cmaj7            Am7             G
Close the wound, hide the scars

F                          Em
But you say it's time we moved in together
Dm7                         Cmaj7
And raised a family of our own, you and me
F                                 Em
Well, that's the way I've always heard it should be
D
You want to marry me, we'll marry

Bm                            G
You say we can keep our love alive
Bm                            G
Babe, all I know is what I see
Dm7
The couples cling and claw
Cmaj7            Am7       G
And drown in love's debris
Bm                         G
You say we'll soar like two birds through the clouds
Bm                         G
But soon you'll cage me on your shelf
Bm                         G
I'll never learn to be just me first
Cmaj7            Am7             G
By myself

F                             Em
Well O.K., it's time we moved in together
Dm7                         Cmaj7
And raised a family of our own, you and me
F                                 Em
Well, that's the way I've always heard it should be
D
You want to marry me, we'll marry
D
We'll marry
