Stole the papers from a dead man, and I whistled through the border
And I waved with real heroes in a ticker tape parade
Smiled with all my teeth just like my Godmother taught me
Swaddled in their praise, forgave myself how I behaved

And everything I did, I did for fear of working hard
And I made it look deliberate and brave
But someone else's heart now means more to me than mine
And I swear to keep her safe till in my grave
To keep her safe till in my grave

And I swear to keep her safe till in my grave

Tie a woman to the track so you can then effect a rescue
I detest you, no I love you, can you see which way is up?
When they feel they understand you must abandon them
This modus operandum may distress you but will always fill your cup

And so it was until my love came holding up a mirror
And I saw a soul that angels wouldn't save
She showed me how my blackened heart could beat for two
And how it does, I swear to keep her safe till in my grave
To keep her safe till in my grave

And I swear to keep her safe till in my grave
