Week 1: #5 If I die young by The Band Perry (lyrics)

Hi guys! It’s been a long long time since I have posted. I guess it is not easy to keep updating your blog especially of you don’t know what to write about. Since I don’t know what else to write till my next escapade, I think I’m going to continue with my top 5 songs per say.  This is my fifth pick for my supposedly week 1 top 5 pick of the week (I know that was ages ago. d^.^b).

I give you The Band Perry. There isn’t much news about the band except maybe that they’re a country music band of three sibling. They top single If I Die Young hit the charts. The lyrics are below taken from elyricsworld.

If I Die Young 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 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 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 you’re 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

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 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

I have had a hard time deciphering the song but heck I still love the tune and I’m learning to play it with my guitar. 🙂 Enjoy the country music!
