Lyrics of That's The Way I Always Heard It Should Be

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 lives
They have their silent noons tearful nights angry dawns
Their children hate them for the things they love
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
Little couples cling and claw and drown in love's debris
You say we 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
