Carly Simon - That's the way I've always heard it should be

[Verse 1]
Bm         Bm7    Bm         Gmaj7
My father sits at night with no lights on,
Bm      Bm7    Bm   Em7
His cigarette glows in the dark,
Dm7                          
The living room is still,
Cadd9      C7       Am7  Ab7 G
I walk by, no re - mark

[Verse 2]
Bm         Bm7    Bm      Gmaj7
I tiptoe past the master bedroom, where...
Bm         Bm7    Bm        Em7
my mother reads her maga - zines, 
Dm7
I hear her call Sweet dreams!
Cadd9     Cmaj7      Am7      Ab7    G
But I forget how to dream
                         
[Chorus]
Fmaj7                            Em7 *
But you say it's time we moved in together,
Fmaj7                           C7
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                 Dadd9/A
You want to marry me,  ...we'll marry


[Verse 3]
Bm               Bm7       Bm           Gmaj7
My friends from college, they're all ...married now,
Bm         Bm7         Bm              Em7
They have their houses, and their  ...lawns,
Dm7
They have their silent noons,
Cadd9        Cmaj7      Am7      Ab7    G
Tearful nights, angry dawns7
                          


[Verse 4]
Bm           Bm7        Bm                    Gmaj7
Their children hate them for the things they're not,
Bm           Bm7      Bm           Em7
They hate themselves for what they are,
Dm7
And yet they drink, they laugh,
Cadd9     Cmaj7           Am7      Ab7    G
Close the wound, hide the scar
                              

[Chorus]
Fmaj7                           Em7 *
But you say it's time we moved in together,
Fmaj7                           C7
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                 Dadd9/A
You want to marry me,  ...we'll marry


[Verse 5]
Bm           Bm7        Bm         Gmaj7
You say that we can keep our love  alive,
Bm      Bm7        Bm      Em7
Babe, all I know is what I see,
Dm7
The couples cling and claw,
Cadd9         Cmaj7      Am7      Ab7    G
And drown in love's de - bris7
                            

[Verse 6]
Bm            Bm7        Bm                    Gmaj7
You say, we'll soar like two birds through the clouds,
Bm           Bm7      Bm        Em7
But soon you'll cage me on your shelf,
Dm7                           Cadd9     Cmaj7   Am7      Ab7    G
I'll never learn to be just me first,  By my - self
 


[Chorus]
Fmaj7                                   Em7 *
Well ok you say it's time we moved in together,
Fmaj7                           C7
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                 Dadd9/A
You want to marry me,  ...we'll marry
