(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 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 O.K., 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.
