    Question You'll be mine through laughter and through tears

    Hi,

    Here is the lyric of the song "Evergreen", and I am not understanding the sentence "You'll be mine through laughter and through tears"

    Evergreen Lyric


    Sometimes love will bloom in the spring time
    Then like flowers in summer it will grow
    Then fade away in the winter
    When the cold wind begins to blow


    But when it's evergreen, evergreen
    It will last through the summer and winter too
    When love is evergeen, evergreen
    Like my love for you


    So hold my hand and tell me
    You'll be mine through laughter and through tears
    We'll let the whole world see our love will be
    Evergreen through all the years


    For when it's evergreen, evergreen
    It will last through the summer and winter too
    When love is evergreen evergreen
    Like my love for you

    Thanks.

    From what I get is that the person is saying that they will always be together, they'll share their sadness and their happiness and never part.

    Yes, that's right, he wants her to say that they will always stay together through good times and bad.

    You will be mine means that you will stay with me, we will be together. Through laughter and through the tears, through my happiness and through my sadness. These are song lyrics, and they are mostly written in this kind of way - as I have observed, these are not simple lines.

    If I say "will you be mine?", is it means "will you stay with me, will you be together with me"?

    Then what about "you are mine"?

    Yes, "will you be mine?" means "will you stay with me?" in the sense of living together in a permanent reletionship.
    "You are mine" means "you belong to me".
