Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that "Marry Me" is a squeaky-clean and simple song about loving someone through the ups and downs of life. It includes no explicit language or references to adult content, making it a great choice for younger and older ears alike.  

What's the story?

After staging a career comeback with their fifth full-length record, Save Me San Francisco, pop-rock band Train returned to the Billboard charts with several singles off the album, including "MARRY ME." This track is about as simple as a love song gets, offering just a few wholesome lyrics that center on loving a person through thick and thin. Including absolutely no adult content or language, the tune is perfectly appropriate for younger kids.

Is it any good?


From lyrics to music, "Marry Me" is a classic love song. Lead singer Patrick Monahan's pure vocals are set against a simple musical backdrop consisting solely of guitar. While it doesn't forge into new creative territory, the single reaches out and pulls your heartstrings as only a good love song can.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about what it means to stick by someone you love, as this song suggests.

  • Do romantic songs like this one idealize love and relationships? Do you need to be in love to be complete?
