I got married cos you should
we both knew we should
you do at our age
this stage of our career
things get tight
a ring helps get a mortgage
to move out of daddy's home
get a bigger car
easy access to the city
I can read the papers in peace
and laugh at the homeless
I know my friends criticize
but we get by ok
so what if theres no emotion
we can wake up anywhere
there's never a row
no time for a kiss
when you've got schedules to meet
trivialities seem so cheap
this is above love
this is more than real
this is all there is
this is as good as it gets-
intense morality parades

    General CommentLovely song. Spoiled a tad by the sarcasm of the lyrics (which doesn't match the pure beauty of the music imho) ...but definitely worthy of being an album track, can't believe it was relegated to the b-side bin...

    General CommentI don't see sarcasm, just the sadness that you have to conform to what society demands and tie yourself to a relationship that has little love or emotion just get by.
    In someways i feel that it relates to people of an older generation than myself (more my parents) in that you had to get get married to leave home then get a house, subsequently buying into debt, scrimping and saving to get by. This was the social norm and is much less common now it seems to fall into that period between the two.
    I find it a very tender and beautiful song even with the lack of romance "no time for a kiss"
    I totally agree that it should been an album track
