                Bm                            Gmaj7
My father sits at night with no lights on
Bm                            G
His cigarette glows in the dark 
Dm         Dm7
The living room is still
Cmaj7            Am7  G# G
I walk by, no remark   
Bm                         Gmaj7
I tiptoe past the master bedroom where
Bm                         G
My mother reads her magazines
Dm                    Dm7     
I hear her call sweet dreams
Cmaj7                  Am7 G# G
   But I forget how to dream

F                          Em7
But you say it's time we moved in together
Dm7                          Cmaj7
  And raised a family of our own, you and me
F                                  Em7
  Well, that's the way I've always heard it should be
            A               D4 D
You want to marry me, we'll marry

Bm                                  Gmaj7
My friends from college they're all married now
Bm                               G
They have their houses and their lawns
Dm              Dm7
They have their silent noons
Cmaj7                   Am7    G# G
  Tearful nights, angry dawns
Bm                              Gmaj7
Their children hate them for the   things they're not
Bm                                 G
They hate themselves for what they are
Dm                       Dm7
And yet they drink, they laugh
Cmaj7                       Am7  G# 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
            A               D4 D
You want to marry me, we'll marry


Bm                       Gmaj7
  You say we can keep our   love alive
Bm                           G
  Babe, all I know is what I see
Dm                     Dm7
 The couples cling and claw
Cmaj7                 Am7   G# G
  And drown in love's debris
Bm                               Gmaj7
 You say we'll soar like two birds   through the clouds
Bm                              G
 But soon you'll cage me on your  shelf
Dm         Dm7                Cmaj7
I'll never learned to be just me first
     Am7  G# 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
            A               D4 D
You want to marry me, we'll marry
