Question Grim Tattoo

Hey guys, I'm currently in the works of a Grim Fandango tattoo (my 3rd based on the game) but i'm a little stuck on something. I want Olivias poem

With bony hands I hold my partner
On soulless feet we cross the floor
The music stops as if to answer
An empty knocking at the door
It seems his skin was sweet as mango
When last I held him to my breast
But now we dance this grim fandango
And will four years before we rest.

in a nice script across my forearm, going lengthwise starting at my elbow and going to my wrist. BUT i'm unsure if the final line is "And will FOUR years" or "And will FOR years"

I know in the subtitles it says FOUR, but i'm thinking it's maybe a'd make sense either way because of the four year journey of the soul. But the way she says it seems like it's FOR.
I need to be certain before I go under the needle again!

If you wondering, my others are a Double-N ticket on the inside of my bicep with the words "Your destiny...cannot be purchased."
And a Manny portrait saying "Love is for the Living"
