Lyrics:

In Sickness and In Health

You didn't know what you'd signed on for
So many years ago
But you went in with both eyes open
How were you to know?
The arc of the trajectory, the speed of the decline
You didn't know what you'd signed on for
When you said that you'd be mine, when you said that you'd be mine

In our newlyweds' apartment
The garden at the back
Life exploding all around us
We didn't see the sneak attack
First time I fell, you helped me up
You were sure that I'd be fine
You didn't know what you'd signed on for
When you said that you'd be mine, when you said that you'd be mine

BRIDGE:
I count on you; you're always there
With such loving and constant care
As my body betrays me, are you patiently waiting to be set free?

Didn't pay too much attention
When we said, "In sickness and in health"
And though you've surely kept that promise
Have you almost lost yourself?
If we're given second chances
I wish you better luck next time
We didn't know what you'd signed on for
When you said that you'd be mine, when you said that you'd be mine
Oh, when you said that you'd be mine
