For better, for worse
Love's a blessing, love's a curse
She's an angel, I'm just a man
I'll always love her 'til I can't stand
[X2]

Well, I met her on a Sunday, she was standing in the sun
I picked up some wild roses, asked her "could I be the one?"
She smiled and took my hand, an angel's vision standing there
She kissed me on the cheeks and threw my roses in the air

For better, for worse
Love's a blessing, love's a curse
She's an angel, I'm just a man
I'll always love her 'til I can't stand

April showers brought the mud, puddles littered under foot
I threw down my brand new jacket, didn't want it messing up her looks
She jumped across that puddle, picked up my dirty coat
She tossed it in the garbage and my heart sank in that moat

For better, for worse
Love's a blessing, love's a curse
She's an angel, I'm just a man
I'll always love her 'til I can't stand

And now the trees turn shades of blood as the days were getting short
Wished I could have kissed you baby, sitting swinging on the porch
But you blew me off completely, no matter how I tried
I didn't want to face it but I knew the truth inside

For better, for worse
Love's a blessing, love's a curse
She's an angel, I'm just a man
I'll always love her 'til I can't stand

My winter coat was red (like the color of her dress)
Now I held her one last time (then I laid her down to rest)
Well, I gave her every chance (well, she should have realized)
That's why they had me locked away, that's why she had to die

For better, for worse
Love's a blessing, love's a curse
She's an angel, I'm just a man
I'll always love her 'til I can't stand

I always loved her but she had a man
