[ch]Bm/D[/ch]                              Gmaj7
      My father sits at night with no lights on,
[ch]Bm/D[/ch]                             Gmaj7  Dm9
      His cigarette glows in the dark,       the living room is still,
Cadd9                    Am/G      Ab     G
      I walk by, no re - mark---------! | /  /  /  / |


[ch]Bm/D[/ch]                            Gmaj7
      I tiptoe past the master bedroom, where...
[ch]Bm/D[/ch]                             Gmaj7  Dm9
   ...my mother reads her maga - zines,     I hear her call,"Sweet dreams!"
Cadd9                      Am/G      Ab    G
      But I forget how to dream--------! | /  /  /  / |


Fmaj7                            Em7
       But you say it's time we moved in together,
Fmaj7                            Cmaj7
       And raised a family of our own, you and me,
Fmaj7                                    Em7
       Well, that's the way I've always heard it should be,
              A                   D5
You want to marry me,  ...we'll marry-----!


[ch]Bm/D[/ch]                                     Gmaj7
     My friends from college, they're all...  married now,
[ch]Bm/D[/ch]                                  Gmaj7       Dm9
     They have their houses, and their...  lawns,    they have their silent noons,
Cadd9                        Am/G    Ab    G
      Tearful nights, angry dawns------! | /  /  /  / |


[ch]Bm/D[/ch]                             Gmaj7
     Their children hate them for----- the things they're not,
[ch]Bm/D[/ch]                                   Gmaj7  Dm9
     They hate themselves for what they are,      and yet they drink, they laugh,
Cadd9                           Am/G    Ab    G
      Close the wound, hide the scar------! | /  /  /  / |


Fmaj7                            Em7
       But you say it's time we moved in together,
Fmaj7                            Cmaj7
       And raised a family of our own, you and me,
Fmaj7                                    Em7
       Well, that's the way I've always heard it should be,
              A                   D5
You want to marry me,  ...we'll marry-----!


[ch]Bm/D[/ch]                               Gmaj7
       You say that we can keep our love alive,
[ch]Bm/D[/ch]                             Gmaj7  Dm9
       Babe, all I know is what I see,       the couples cling and claw,
Cadd9                          Am/G    Ab     G
       And drown in love's de - bris------! | /  /  /  / |


[ch]Bm/D[/ch]                                       Gmaj7
       You say, we'll soar like two birds through the clouds,
[ch]Bm/D[/ch]                                      Gmaj7
       But soon you'll cage me... on your shelf,
Dm9                            Cadd9              Am/G      Ab    G
    I'll never learn to be just me first, by my - self--------! | /  /  /  / |


Fmaj7                            Em7
       Well, okay, it's time we moved in together,
Fmaj7                             Cmaj7
       And raised a family of our own, you and me,
Fmaj7                                    Em7
       Well, that's the way I've always heard it should be,
              A                 D5
You want to marry me, ...we'll marry-----------------!
                                    (Marry-----------!)
