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 shit off of these fancy shoes
I'll be a Princess Die and die with you

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 shit off of these fancy shoes
I'll be a Princess Die and die with you

Princess die
I want to see her cry
Princess die

Princess die
We want to watch her cry
Princess die

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

And 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 Vuiton 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.

Lyrics from Melbourne BTW Ball, 27 June 2012

    General Comment"This song is called Princess Die, D-I-E, and it's about all the legends that we've lost, because I think it's really f***ed-up that we only revere people as artistic legends when they're dead. We never give them any props while they're alive. So let's change that, yeah?"

    My Opinionthis song is a narrative on the feeling of excepting death from the eyes of a princess... (knowing gaga, this is about princess diana)

    My InterpretationThis song is about suicide and Princess Dianna.

    "I wish that I could go in my rich boyfriends limo, right after after he proposed with a sixteen carat stone, wrapped in rose gold. With the paparazzi all swarming round"

    This is exactly how princess Dianna died. In a highspeed car chase with the paparazzi.

    General CommentI've seen gaga in concert, she kept vomiting. Lip sync again ! as she was vomiting the song carried on. I don't like fake singers!
