THE BAND PERRY'S IF I DIE YOUNG

When it comes to music, I'm always one of those who immediately search for a song after hearing it and finding it great. Last thursday, my father was on overtime duty and that means, no television. Why? Because, I don't watch a lot of tv shows unless if its Showtime and Eat Bulaga's Pinoy Henyo. My father is a fan of ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida shows especially Mara Clara so since he's not around yet, I did not turn the television on, instead, I turned the radio on. And the song really struck me.

I didn't knew what the genre of the song. It was mellow but sounded a bit of country. It was kind of like the songs by Gregory and the Hawk. I was totally hooked by every line of the song and the chorus was awesome. The song is totally legen...wait for it... dary. [LOL] Anyways. it was a sweet song even if it just tells the wishes of a person in case if he dies young. Here is a YouTube video of the song.

 

The song is entitled "IF I DIE YOUNG". It was sang by The Band Perry.  I immediately searched for its lyrics and downloaded the song. Now I'm going to share its lyrics. Enjoy and sing along.
IF I DIE YOUNG

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

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 loving 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 me 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 'em for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singing
Funny, when you're dead how people start listening

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 ballad of a dove
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep 'em in your pocket
Save them for a time when you're 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.
