Listening to: The Band Perry: If I Die Young
"Take me in into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you"
-Carrie Underwood "I'll Stand By You"
"Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone
oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you again"
-James Taylor "Fire and Rain"
"Well, we bursted out of class
Had to get away from those fools
We learned more from a 3-minute record, baby
Than we ever learned in school
"'Cause we made a promise we swore we'd always remember
No retreat, baby, no surrender
Blood brothers in the stormy night
With a vow to defend
No retreat, baby, no surrender"
-Bruce Springstein "No Surrender"
"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, oh well
I've had just enough time"
"What I never did is done."
- The Band Perry "If I Die Young"
