If I Die Young - Future Hit Makers

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 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 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 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

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
