     "Practical Arrangement"  from the Broadway Play "The Last Ship" by Sting

Am I asking for the Moon ?

Is it really so implausible

That you and I could soon come

To some kind of arrangement

 

I'm not asking for the Moon

I've always been a realist

When it's nothing more

Than a simple rearrangement

 

With one roof over our heads

A warm house to return to

We could start with seperate beds

I could sleep alone or learn to

 

I'm not suggesting that we'd find

Some Earthly Paradise forever

I mean how often does that happen now

The answer's probably never

 

But we could come to some arrangement

A pracital arrangement

And you could learn to love me

Given time

 

I'm not promising the Moon

I'm not promising a Rainbow

Just a practical solution

To a solitary life

 

I'd be a father to your boy

A shoulder you could lean on

How bad could it be to be my wife

With one roof over our heads

A warm house to return to

 

You wouldn't have to cook for me

You wouldn't have to learn to

I'm not suggesting that this

Proposition here could last forever

I've no intention of deceiving you

You're far too clever

 

But we could come to some arrangement

A practical arrangement

And perhaps you could learn to love me

Given time

 

It may not be the romance

That you had in mind

But you could learn to love me

Given time       ​        ​        ​        ​        ​      Listen to this on the internet , it really is beautiful.
