Marry The Night: The Prelude Pathétique

[Lady Gaga]
When I look back on my life,
It's not that I don't want to see things exactly as they happened,
it's just that I prefer to remember them in an artistic way.
And truthfully the lie of it all is much more honest because I invented it.
 
Clinical psychology tells us arguably that trauma is the ultimate killer,
memories are not recycled like atoms and particles in quantum physics:
They can be lost forever.
It's sort of like my past is an unfinished painting,
and as the artist of that painting,
I must fill in all the ugly holes
and make it beautiful again.
 
It's not that I've been dishonest,
it's just that I loathe reality.
For example, those nurses,
they're wearing next season Calvin Klein
And so am I.
And the shoes,
Custom Giuseppe Zanotti
I tipped their gauze caps to the side like Parisian berets
Because I think it's romantic
And I also believe that mint will be very big in fashion next Spring
 
Check out this nurse on the right
She's got a great ass. (Bam)
The truth is, back then at the clinic,
they only wore those funny hats to keep the blood out of their hair.
And that girl on the left,
she ordered gummy bears and a knife a couple of hours ago.
They only gave her the gummy bears.
I'd wished they'd only given me the gummy bears
 
[Nurse]
Morning, morphine princess
How are you feeling?
Everything went really well
Look at you, I remember when I delivered you
You look just like your mother
 
[Lady Gaga]
Except my mother is a saint
...
I'm gonna make it
 
[Nurse]
No intimacy for two weeks
Blood pressure 90/40
A little low but then again you've always been on the low
 
[Lady Gaga]
I'm gonna be a star
You know why?
 
[Nurse]
Why?
 
[Lady Gaga]
Because
I have nothing left to lose
 
[Nurse]
Do you need anything else?
 
[Lady Gaga]
Juste un petit peu de la musique
 
...
 
[Woman]
Could be someone important.
 
[Lady Gaga]
Hello,
c'est mon directeur.
...
Mais je suis un artiste.
Qu'est-ce que tu veux dire renoncé?
I'm such a star
I am so dirty
I'm gonna marry the night
I won't give up on my life
I'm a warrior queen
Live passionately tonight
 
You may say "I lost everything"
But I still had my Be-Dazzler
And I had a lot of patches
Shiny ones from M&J Trimming
So I wreaked havoc on some old denim
And I did what any girl would do
I did it all over again
 
Thanks!
