The song Virginia Bluebell by Miranda
Lambert, although slow, is a good song with more than words set
to a tune.
This song is
about a friend who's life isn't going right and the song was
written to remind the friend it will get worse before it gets
better. The first line implies her friend is keeping everything
to themselves. In this song, Miranda is telling a friend that
although life can be tough, they can't let it bring them down.
She emphasises this in the first two lines in the second verse.
She is also saying that they have many qualities and that they
should stop looking for flaws.
The main metaphor in this song is when
she compares her friend to a flower. This comparison is important
because a lot of people think they aren't good enough or "can't
live up to a rose", but Miranda is telling her friend it doesn't
matter because she doesn't see how amazing she really
powerful symbolism in this song is 'even through a storm a flower
can bloom'. The meaning of this quote is even when life seems
unbearable, it will be okay. Another line says 'shaded by a tree,
can't live up to a rose'. This part of the song could mean
everyone expects the friend to be perfect so the friend believes
they have to be perfect, but the friend knows they are not
perfect or even close to it. The line after that means they need
people to stop comparing them to perfection. This is evident when
it speaks of a sunny place.
this song isn't intended to be a Christian song, it does agree
with what the Bible says. Genesis 1:27 says, 'So God created
mankind in his own image, in
the image of God he
created them; male and female he created them.' This verse means
everyone has Gods characteristics, and Miranda is telling her
friend that just because she doesn't see how many qualities they
really have, it doesn't mean they're not
This song is a good song and can help us
remember we are all made in Gods image.
