Or what does it mean to you? I love the song and have listened to it over and over, and I'm not sure what her intended meaning of the song is. I've been reading online, and a lot of people have different theories. The main one seems to be that people think it's a song about suicide, but I'm not sure on that. Another one is that it is based on Lord Tennyson's poem "The Lady of Shalott" (based off a legend from the days of King Arthur, Elaine of Astolat). I was just wondering what you think the meaning is or what it means to you?
The song is If I Die Young by The Band Perry
"We wanted to write a song about making the most of whatever time you're given -- whether it's two years, twenty years or two hundred."
"We really have gotten to live and love at our young ages. 'If I Die Young,' for us, is about if it all ends at this moment, look at what we've gotten to do. Whatever time we're given will be absolutely enough as long as we make the most of it"
