If I Die Young:::: Sam Tsui




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 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 fell in love with no one 
But it sure felt nice when I held you in the sun 
And you, you took my hand said you'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 



If i die young
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 
oh oh 

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 your really gonna need 'em oh 

The sharp knife of a short life
