My father sits at night with no lights on His cigarette glows in the dark The living room is still I walk by, no remark I tiptoe past the master bedroom where My mother reads her magazines I hear her call sweet dreams But I forget how to dream But you say it's time we moved in together And raised a family of our own, you and me Well, that's the way I've always heard it should be You want to marry me We'll marry My friends from college they're all married now They have their houses and their lawns They have their silent noons Tearful nights, angry dawns Their children hate them for the things they're not They hate themselves for what they are And yet they drink, they laugh Close the wound, hide the scar But you say it's time we moved in together And raised a family of our own, you and me Well, that's the way I've always heard it should be You want to marry me We'll marry You say that we can keep our love alive Babe, all I know is what I see The couples cling and claw And drown in love's debris You say we'll soar like two birds through the clouds But soon you'll cage me on your shelf I'll never learn to bejust me first By myself Well, okay, it's time we moved in together And raised a family of our own, you and me Well, that's the way I've always heard it should be You want to marry me We'll marry
