"This song is a little sad," she told the audience at a recent concert in Melbourne before playing the new tune. "I wrote it a little while ago, and I've never ever played it for anyone. But it's about some of the most deep and personal thoughts I've ever had. It's called 'Princess Die,' D-I-E,". "
The ballad begins with Gaga singing, "Leave the coffin open when I go, and leave my pearls and lipstick on so everybody knows. Pretty will be the photograph I leave laying down on famous knives so everybody sees...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."
It's unclear if the song will be a part of Gaga's forthcoming new album. Watch the concert recording below to hear the full song. What do you think of it?
