My love, I make a solemn vow to you,
Before our families, dear friends and God,
My love will always be completely true,
Until one of us lies beneath the sod.
I had no thought I ever could defraud
This precious man who opens up his heart.
The match my friends and family applaud.
There is no roadblock keeping us apart.
And yet I knew right from the very start,
I’d made the selfsame promise to another.
I gave to him the whole of my young heart
And like now, vowed there would be no other.
You cannot know part of my heart I save,
For one who lies so lowly in his grave.
