PostSubject: If I Die Young by The Band Perry   Tue Oct 12, 2010 10:13 pm

Such a pretty song~! I could fall asleep listening to this girl's voice.

LYRICS
If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a, bed of roses
Sink me in the river, at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Oh oh, oh oh

Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
She'll know I'm safe with You when she stands under my colors, oh and
Life ain't always what you think it ought to be, no
Ain't even gray, but she buries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I've had, just enough time

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I've had just enough time

And I'll be wearing white, when I come into your kingdom
I'm as green as the ring on my little, cold finger, I've
Never known the lovin' of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand, there's a
Boy here in town says he'll, love my forever
Who would have thought forever could be severed by
The sharp knife of a short life, well
I've had, just enough time

So put on your best boys and I'll wear my pearls
What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts, oh no, I'll sell them for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singin'
Funny when your dead how people start listenin'

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Oh oh (oh, oh)
The ballad of a dove (Oh, oh)
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep 'em in your pocket
Save them for a time when your really gonna need them, oh

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I've had just enough time

So put on your best boys and I'll wear my pearls

Do you like this song? Tell me what you think!

Um, wow. The singer is really great. But, the title of the song is my worst fear : dying young. Honestly, death in general scares me. But not death, but the way I will die scares me. I would never write a song about dying young, beacuse it would be way to scary. I couldn't fall asleep listening to her sing a song about death. I don't know how that song could be your favourite. The singer and background music is great, but the lyrics are kind of creepy.
-Rachelle41 I love you

Rachelle-chan, because I'm a tad OCD, I've already fixed the mistakes. But it's spelled "dying", "scary", and "general". Remember to drop those e's, and in the case of "dying", add a y. It is NOT "dieing". That doesn't even look right. Oh, and there's another word. When you say "write" as in "I'm WRITING a song", it's not "right". Haha, play on words. Sort of.

I think it's a lovely song, and actually, it's not the singer I like so much as the song. I've known several people to have died young, and I think, because that's something we all fear, it's good to have a song that can get our message across.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Life is like thunder; powerful, confusing, wonderous, loud, inexplainable, sudden, beautiful in ways you can't even begin to describe, and completely unexpected. Death is like lightning; it strikes even the most powerful things, and shoots through the ground to everyone nearby, leaving them with only a painful aftershock.

Almost dying changes nothing. Dying changes everything.

Cry me a river, build a bridge, and get over it.

I love this song! Does this band have any more songs? Love her time a million! This song rocks! She reminds me of Taylor Swift actually.

I was searching Youtube and found her when I was watching some of Taylor's videos. The song kinda makes you wonder, doesn't it? I looked up some more of their songs, but I none of them close to this one. This song also reminds me of the some A Thousand Miles, which I think I'll post later. Smile
