Lady Gaga debuts new song “Princess Die”

Somehow, between headlining a world-wide tour, pop superstar Lady Gaga still finds time to write songs. During her concert in Melbourne, Australia, Gaga performed a snippet of her new song “Princess Die.”

Gaga made it clear that the song may or may not appear on her next album. “This song is a little bit sad and it’s in no way reflective of the rest of the music on the album. It’s about some of the most deep and personal thoughts I’ve ever had.”

Here are the lyrics:

Leave the coffin open when I go
Leave my prose and lipstick on so everybody knows
Pretty will be the photograph I leave
Laying down on famous knives so everybody sees

Bleach out all all the dark
I’ll swallow each peroxide shot
Someone I’ll know could love and save me from myself
Maybe I’ll just clean the s— of these fancy shoes
I’ll be a princess di and die with you

[chorus]
I wish that I was strong
I wish that I was wrong
I wish that I could cope
But i took pills and left a note

I’m hungry from an anorexic heart
I’ve been trying to tell you how i feel
But was never very smart
I’m wrapped in silks made for Egyptian queens
I’ll do it in the swimming pool
So everybody sees

Bleach out all the dark
I’ll swallow each peroxide shot
Volumes I know will love and save me from myself
Maybe I’ll just keep clean the s— off of these fancy shoes
I’ll be a princess di and die with you

Princess die
I want to see her cry
Princess die
Princess die
We want to watch her cry
Princess die

[chorus]
I wish that I was strong
I wish that I was wrong
I wish that I could cope
But I took pills and left a note

[bridge]
But I took pills and left a note
I wish that I could go in my rich boyfriend’s limo
Right after he proposed with a 16-carat stone wrapped in rose gold
With the paparazzi all swarming around
In my Louis Vuitton white buttoned down
Oh it’s not that deep
So bob your head for another dead blonde
Who’s real prince is in heaven
She just wants to sleep

The final act of life will be my own hands to do,
I’ll be a princess die and die with you
Applaud, approve.
