Lyrics for If I Die Young by The Band Perry

words to if i die young

A few weeks before we sat down and wrote 'If I Die Young,' I read that poem over and over. She told Billboard magazine that the process of writing this song taught her a lot about being a writer. Kimberley explained to PopEater: We loved the imagery in Tennyson 's The Lady of Shalott. Not sure why The Band Perry is so popular. I think it says live life while you have it. So for us it was a statement of you know what, if it all ends at this moment for whatever reason even at our young ages, we've gotten to live and love so well and so completely.

This is the trio's second single; which was given a release date of June 7, 2010. I hold this song dear because a girl I briefly knew just died and I connect this song with her because she will never get the chance to live like we will and I feel sorry for her. Kimberly Perry recalled writing the song to Billboard magazine: It was basically a cloudy day in East Tennessee where the boys and I call home. It's always been one of my favorites with really romantic but bittersweet imagery. On this particular day, I was thinking about what my funeral would look like if it were mine to plan, and it grew into this idea. The group signed to Republic Nashville in August 2009 and released its debut single Hip to My Heart the same month. I had brainstormed in my little notebook and I began to see this song take shape.

We really have gotten to live and love at our young ages. The song's music video was directed by David McClister and shows the band setting Kimberly Perry in a canoe before pushing it off into the river. The previous four were: 1955 - Live Fast, Love Hard, Die Young, Faron Young. If I Die Young If I die bury me in satin Lay me down on a bed of roses Sink me in the at dawn Send me away with the of a love song Uh oh uh oh Lord make me a rainbow I'll down on my mother She'll know I'm safe with you when She under my colors, oh and Life ain't what you it be, no Ain't even grey, but she her baby The knife of a life, Well, I've had just time If I die bury me in satin. There are really no secrets in the Band Perry because the genesis of the song should begin with everybody pouring out their experiences on the table, their emotions. One of my absolute favorite songs.

Perhaps in her death as peoples final act to her they'll give her a beautiful send-off, treated as a girl who deserved to be loved. Reid contributes a lot to the chord structure.

We were just real humble to have the pen and paper in hand when it was ready to come, and for us it is a statement of contentment. She explained: It had all this interesting meter and internal rhyme and from the mechanics of writing, it taught me so much. Kimberley Perry told The Boot the story behind the song: 'If I Die Young' is actually the first song that we had penned for the album.

If I Die Young Lyrics

words to if i die young

We finished that song and just looked at each other and said, 'How cool is this that we were able to put feet to our dreams? The singer is holding a book containing poems by Tennyson, including The Lady of Shalott. According to Billboard magazine, this was the fifth song with die, or a form of the word, in its title to top the country chart. I began to contemplate the idea that if it all ended at this moment, I'd done everything that I set out to do so far. The Band Perry is composed of siblings: lead vocalist and guitarist Kimberly Perry, bass guitarist Reid Perry and drummer Neil Perry. I've listened to it so much, although I prefer the pop version since I'm not much of a country fan. It was more about the visuals in that poem than anything else.

It's a funny thing writing with your brothers and I'm sure, for them, writing with their sister. It was such a gorgeous moment of contentment that was hitting me so hard in the heart. We wanted to write a song about making the most of whatever time you're given - whether it's two years, twenty years or two hundred. I find that it's not as binding as a three-and-a-half-minute song - you can get a lot of good brainstorming out in that way. She's a romantic at heart, but for her, she can not envision a happy future.

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 Uh oh uh 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 colours, oh and Life ain't always what you think it oughta be, no Ain't even grey, 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 singing 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 Uh oh uh oh The ballad of a dove Go with peace and love Gather up your tears, keep 'em in your pocket Save 'em for a time when your really gonna need 'em 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. Kimberly Perry told about this cut: That song works on so many levels and means different things to different people. It gets us to the right place. Kimberley has written poetry since she was a kid, but this was the first successful song that she wrote by herself. I was very aware that I had so many other aspirations but for whatever reason if they didn't happen, that I had done everything that I needed to do. Whatever time we're given will be absolutely enough as long as we make the most of it.

And that's what it means to us. Every line in the song is 100% realism, but then there is also some deeper metaphor underneath if folks choose to see that. A lot of times before I start writing a lyric, I'll start writing in free-verse poetry. Sometimes, it's fun to drag something dramatic up in front of your brother and sister.

The Band Perry:If I Die Young Lyrics

words to if i die young

Neil always brings in lyrical ideas, mandolin melodies, and I like to feel like I bring melody into the room as well. . Kimberley told about the siblings' songwriting process: We all bring something really different to the writing room, based around what we play and our experiences and just what we're feeling that day. It was just one of those songs that you felt like was meant to be on planet earth. A girl in her very early teen years who is wrought with emotional pain and on the cusp of suicide. I came up with the melody and ran downstairs and said, 'Hey, boys, play this with me! It defines an early chapter of our music career. It also taught me to communicate not only on a metaphorical level, which I've always done a lot.
