What If..


"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

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 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 who 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

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 you're really gonna need them

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


This song is awakening, at least for me.
It realizes me how short life is. I could die tonight, tomorrow, next week. Nobody knows. Been thinking about having future family, husband and kids. But what if tomorrow's gonna be my last day here on earth?

....I don't know. Maybe I'd regret what I did in the past. I didn't do my best. I wasted my time for nothing. Sorry, self. This song caused so much flashback pain.

So if tomorrow's gonna be my last, I'm gonna put on my best dress and highest heels. I'm gonna have fun! I'm gonna work so hard so nobody cannot complain my effort. I'm gonna do the best I could. Don't keep hatred in your heart. Always forgive, let go, and move on.
Keep this mind, do the best every single day. If we are lucky enough to have 50 years more, we won't regret anything. Aim the best you can get, be the best you can be. Live your life to the fullest.

This song inspires, motivates, and makes me stronger. Thank you, life.


P.S
One day if I really die. Kids if you're reading this, that's how i want to die. Bury me in satin, lay me down on a bed of roses, send me away with words of a love song. But don't sink me in a river. Nowadays rivers are dirty. Bury me next to my dearie. I would also like some roses and ruffles. Thank you very much. You know I love you.
