so the Em becomes Bm

Em CMy father sits at night with no lights on
Em CHis cigarette glows in the dark
Gm7The living room is still
Fmaj7 Dm7 DbMaj7 C I walk by, no remark
Em CI tiptoe past the master bedroom where
Em CMy mother reads her magazines
Gm7 I hear her call sweet dreams
Fmaj7 Dm7 DbMaj7 C But I forgot how to dream
Bb AmBut you say it's time we moved in together
Gm7 Fmaj7And raised a family of our own, you and me
Bb AmWell, that's the way I've always heard it should be
D Gmaj7You want to marry me, we'll marry
Em CMy friends from college they're all married now
Em CThey have their houses and their lawns
Gm7They have their silent noons
Fmaj7 Dm7 DbMaj7 C Tearful nights, angry dawns
Em CTheir children hate them for the things they're not
Em CThey hate themselves for what they are
Gm7 And yet they drink, they laugh
Fmaj7 Dm7 DbMaj7 C Close the wound, hide the scars
Bb AmBut you say it's time we moved in together
Gm7 Fmaj7And raised a family of our own, you and me
Bb AmWell, that's the way I've always heard it should be
D Gmaj7You want to marry me, we'll marry
Em CYou say that we can keep our love alive
Em CBabe, all I know is what I see
Gm7The couples cling and claw
Fmaj7 Dm7 DbMaj7 C And drown in love's debris
Em CYou say we'll soar like two birds through the clouds
Em CBut soon you'll cage me on your shelf
Gm7 Fmaj7I'll never learn to be just me first
Dm7 DbMaj7 C By myself
Bb AmWell O.K., it's time we moved in together
Gm7 Fmaj7And raised a family of our own, you and me
Bb AmWell, that's the way I've always heard it should be
D Gmaj7You want to marry me, we'll marry
