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

His name was Jamie and hanging up on a wall was a painting
Of lady Gaga the amazing, little monster was bravely
Standing up is a... Jamie daily would basically
Just be praying that he make it home safely
Without him sexuality making him cowardly, haters get angry
I doubt if he was straight that he be faced with this danger
... For a teen he made the blameless mistake
Of thinking that this world... Our angels protect him in heaven

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
I wanna hear y'all, I wanna hear y'all

Her name was Phoebe, believe me,
Her beauty seemed to be beaming
And at 15 she was needing to be dreaming
And not believing in lies and teases
And significant meanings
Battling bullies and demons for immaterial reasons
See the theory was easy, she fell little like weezy
Cause the means girl was...
And was calling her sleezy
Too much attention on differences, no one's listening
The chick's got vicious...
She ain't living... Damn...
If I die, if I die
It's the pain, it's the hurt
It's the wounds, it's the worst
If I die
We gotta stop the hate
There is no reason, to tear others down
Just to build yourself up
That's work
If I die
Now everybody go, everybody go
Oho, oho
I wanna hear y'all, I wanna hear y'all
If I die
Now everybody go, everybody go
I wanna hear y'all, I wanna hear y'all
We lost y'all way too soon
Jamie, Phoebe, Amy, Winehouse
Michael, Jackson, Steve, Jobbs
... Pac,... Left Eye... And Heavy D
