That's The Way I've Always Heard It Should Be
Carly simon & Jacob Brackman
From the 1971 Album carly simon

Transposed By Clive Sax

This is arranged for my voice. To play in the same key as Carly simon Transpose down 6 half steps
so the Em becomes Bm

Em                            C
My father sits at night with no lights on
Em                            C
His cigarette glows in the dark 
Gm7
The living room is still
Fmaj7            Dm7 DbMaj7  C     
I walk by, no remark   
Em                         C
I tiptoe past the master bedroom where
Em                         C
My mother reads her magazines
Gm7                         
I hear her call sweet dreams
Fmaj7                 Dm7  DbMaj7  C     
But I forgot how to dream

Bb                          Am
But you say it's time we moved in together
Gm7                         Fmaj7
And raised a family of our own, you and me
Bb                                 Am
Well, that's the way I've always heard it should be
              D               Gmaj7
You want to marry me, we'll marry

Em                            C
My friends from college they're all married now
Em                            C
They have their houses and their lawns
Gm7
They have their silent noons
Fmaj7                   Dm7 DbMaj7  C                      
Tearful nights, angry dawns
Em                                   C
Their children hate them for the things they're not
Em                                  C
They hate themselves for what they are
Gm7                         
And yet they drink, they laugh
Fmaj7                       Dm7  DbMaj7  C             
Close the wound, hide the scars

Bb                          Am
But you say it's time we moved in together
Gm7                         Fmaj7
And raised a family of our own, you and me
Bb                                 Am
Well, that's the way I've always heard it should be
                D             Gmaj7
You want to marry me, we'll marry

Em                            C
You say that we can keep our love alive
Em                            C
Babe, all I know is what I see
Gm7
The couples cling and claw
Fmaj7                  Dm7 DbMaj7  C    
And drown in love's debris
Em                         C
You say we'll soar like two birds through the clouds
Em                         C
But soon you'll cage me on your shelf
Gm7                        Fmaj7
I'll never learn to be just me first
    Dm7  DbMaj7  C          
By myself

Bb                             Am
Well O.K., it's time we moved in together
Gm7                         Fmaj7
And raised a family of our own, you and me
Bb                                 Am
Well, that's the way I've always heard it should be
               D             Gmaj7
You want to marry me, we'll marry
