That's The Way I've Always Heard It Should Be - Carly Simon

Written by:Carly Simon/Jacob Brackman

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 forgot 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 be just 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

We'll marry
