Chainsaw - The Band Perry



The Experience: It's hard to bury the hatchet holdin' the chainsaw...  It's easy to love - and even easier to break hearts - if you think you can just move on when things get tough...


Music video: The Band Perry removes every single trace of past loves. But can you cut the past out of your own heart?


The Meaning of Chainsaw: The Band Perry condemns cheap love. If your solution to problems is just breaking up and moving on, your love isn't worth much. It's hard to bury the hatchet holdin' a chainsaw. It's hard enough to ask for and offer forgiveness when you're committed to making things work. It's almost impossible when you already have plan B ready to go. But cutting down hearts isn't the same as cutting down tree. Some holes just don't grow back.

Ask yourself: Do you commit to relationships? Or do you cut loose at the first sign of difficulty or sacrifice?


LYRICS:

We scratched our names
In that oak tree
'Cause I loved you
And you loved me
A jagged little heart so the whole town knew it
Carved in the bark with an arrow through it
I came out here to see it one more time

And I got my chainsaw
Oh you know it's got to go, it's such a shame y'all
But I ain't gonna be happy until those names fall
And I'm sittin' on a stump

Love is shady
Love is tragic
It's hard to bury the hatchet
Holdin' a chainsaw

I guess all those years
They don't mean a thing
Now I can't wait
To count those rings
Nothing left of us but dust and splinters
A big pile of wood to keep me warm through the winter
'Cause I don't have you

But I got my chainsaw
Oh you know it's got to go, it's such a shame y'all
But I ain't gonna be happy until those names fall
And I'm sittin' on a stump

Love is shady
Love is tragic
It's hard to bury the hatchet
Holdin' a chainsaw

I remember what you said that night
That you would love me for the rest of your life
We wrote forever with a pocketknife
But forever's goin' down tonight

I got my chainsaw
Oh you know it's got to go, it's such a shame doll
But I ain't gonna be happy until those names fall
And I'm sittin' on a stump

Love is shady
Love is tragic
It's hard to bury the hatchet
Holdin' a chainsaw
