"If I Die Young"-Achilles' version

If I die young, bury me in a shroud

Lay me down on a, bed from my foes, yes

Sink me in the ocean, when Dawn

Shows her rosy fingers when the rays are long.

Uh oh, uh oh

Zeus, make me a hero, I'll shine down on my mother

She'll know I'm safe with you when she stands under my colors, oh well

Life ain't always what you think it ought to be, no

Ain't even grey, but he steals my lady

The sharp arrow of a short life, well

I've not had enough time!

If I die young, bury me in a shroud

Lay me down on a, bed from my foes, yes

Sink me in the ocean, when Dawn

Shows her rosy fingers when the rays are long.

The sharp arrow of a short life, well

I've not had enough time!

And I'll be wearing gold, when I rise to Mt. Olympus,

I'm as red as the hair on the back of my neck,

I've never known the victory of this war

But it sure felt nice when I was swinging my sword,

There's a boy here in town, says he'll hate me forever,

Who would have thought forever could be severed by

The sharp arrow of a short life, well,

I've not had enough time

So put on your best boys and I'll wear my armor

What I never did is done

A treasure for my spoils, oh no, I want my lady Briseis

She's worth so much more after I've won her

And maybe then you'll realize how well I've been fightin'

Funny when you're dead how people start seein'

If I die young, bury me in a shroud

Lay me down on a, bed from my foes, yes

Sink me in the ocean, when Dawn

Shows her rosy fingers when the rays are long.

Uh oh (uh, oh)

The ballad of an eagle (oh, uh)

Go with war and evil.

Let your tears run, don't keep 'em in your pocket

This is the time when you're really gonna need 'em, oh ('cuz your best warrior just died, bro!)

The sharp arrow of a short life, well

I've not had enough time

So put on your best boys and I'll wear my armor


The song "If I Die Young" belongs to the Band Perry and Achilles does not belong to me.
