If I Die Young

by J-Stacknik

If I Die Young is the debut album of The Band Perry. The title track was written by Kimberly Perry and her bandmates and brothers Reid and Neil.

“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”

This is the opening and main verse of The Band Perry’s song If I Die Young. It creates an image of someone dying young, which of course is sad, but the way the verse is sung it sounds like the singer is accepting his or her death. The song was written by the band and lead singer Kimberly Perry says “We wanted to write a song about making the most of whatever time you’re given, whether it’s two years or two hundred.” It is actually a positive outlook on death and dying from a young person’s point of view that if you go in this moment be happy with what you have achieved or accomplished up to that point.”

Kimberly adds “We’ve had people writing in and telling us about what this song means to them. People are finding a lot of life through this song. That’s the spirit that we wrote it out of.”
