Better Dig Two - The Band Perry


The Experience                    
Love is forever. That's what Kimberly Perry promises with her parting sigh, "I was gonna love you 'til I's dead." Even though she's sure of herself, Kimberly knows that love is a risk. The man you love, the man you marry, the man you give your life to... he could throw you away and walk off... But she still loves. She gives her heart away, puts her life in her husband's hands, and trusts that he'll do the same. 

The Video                    
The music video is "until death do us part" taken to the extreme. Wedding and funeral, light and dark, happy and sad, The Band Perry shows us that love is beautiful, even if the sun goes deep behind the clouds.

My Take                    
Great! Love is for life. Hurt can't change that. Betrayal can't undo the words you speak on your wedding day. They hold. And we all want them to. If not, what is love worth?
Still, I disagree on one thing. There is hope for broken hearts. Hold on to love, but hold on to life too.


Ask Yourself                   
It's easy to say that love is life. But we all know that love can fall apart. Hearts can be broken. Is there anything that you can fall back on when love fails? Or is the grave the only option?

LYRICS                                        

I told you on the day we wed
I was gonna love you 'til I's dead
Made you wait 'til our wedding night
That's the first and the last time I wear white

So if the ties that bind ever do come loose
Tie them in a knot like a hangman's noose
Cause I'll go to heaven or I'll go to hell
Before I'll see you with someone else

Put me in the ground
Put me six foot down
And let the stone say:

Here lies the girl whose only crutch
Was loving one man just a little too much
If you go before I do
I'm gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig two

Well,
It won't be whiskey, won't be meth
It'll be your name on my last breath
If divorce or death ever do us part
The coroner will call it a broken heart

So put me in the ground
Put me six foot down
And let the stone say:

Here lies the girl whose only crutch
Was loving one man just a little too much
If you go before I do
I'm gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig two

Dig two
Ooh, ooh

I took your name when I took those vows
I meant 'em back then and I mean 'em right now,
Oh, right now

If the ties that bind ever do come loose
If forever ever ends for you
If that ring gets a little too tight
You might as well read me my last rights

And let the stone say:

Here lies the girl whose only crutch
Was loving one man just a little too much
If you go before I do
Gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig, uh!

Heavy stone right next to mine,
We'll be together 'til the end of time
Don't you go before I do,
I'm gonna tell the grave digger that he better dig two

I told you on the day we wed
I was gonna love you 'til I's dead
