"Marry The Night: The Prelude Pathétique" is a speech by Lady Gaga during the music video for "Marry the Night". It's started on 0:00 until 8:47.


The Prelude Pathétique (first part)

[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
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

Lady Gaga and nurse's dialogue

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

Tachycardia heart rate is 120

[Lady Gaga]
I'm gonna make it

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?


[Lady Gaga]
I have nothing left to lose

Do you need anything else?

[Lady Gaga]
Juste un petit peu de la musique

Classical part, Gaga in bedroom, Gaga in a bathtub

[Piano Sonata No. 8 by Beethoven starts playing]

Could be someone important

[Lady Gaga]
It's my manager (c'est mon directeur)

Perfect, I told you

[Lady Gaga]
But I'm an artist (mais je suis un artiste)
What's? What's this mean? (Qu'est-ce que tu veux dire renonce?)
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

The Prelude Pathétique (last part)

[Lady Gaga]
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
