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

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 colours
Life ain't always what you think it ought to be, no
Ain't even grey but she burries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life,
But 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,
But 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 that forever could be severed
By the sharp knife of a short life
But 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
Maybe then you'll hear the words I've been saying
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 in peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep them in your pocket
Save 'em for a time when you're really going to need 'em

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
