Autumn, Emilie - Mad Girl Lyrics




Mad girl
Can you believe
What they've done to you?
Wouldn't they stop
When you asked them to leave you alone
In all your faerie tales
How did the prince say he loved you?
How did your father die?
Was he a good man?
Maybe someday you'll know

The beginning and the end
Much closer than they seem
Death is but a dream, I know
Dolls are meant to grow away
All broken and bent from petty play
My friend in this world
Is a bottle of nothing
Still I fly
Still I fall

Mad girl
Can you believe
What they've done to you?
Wouldn't they stop
When you asked them to leave you alone
In all your faerie tales
How did the prince say he loved you?
How did your father die?
Was he a good man?
Maybe someday you'll know

Like the water in the well
My melancholy state
Folly, fear and hate, I know
Even time will never tell
She teetered, she tripped
And then she fell
My faith in this world
Is a bottle of nothing
Still I fly
Still I fall

Mad girl
Can you believe
What they've done to you?
Wouldn't they stop
When you asked them to leave you alone
In all your faerie tales
How did the prince say he loved you?
How did your father die?
Was he a good man?
Maybe someday...

Autumn, Emilie Mad Girl Comments
  1. evanescence408

    Damn that last line gets me. Was he a good man? Maybe some day..
    I love her music so much. She's helped me through my darkest nights when noone else bothered to listen. She has inspired me to write poetry even.

  2. Animezingly

    Not to overshare too much, but I spent a brief about of time in a Physiatric ward when I was really ill, and I used to sing this to myself sometimes. It was soothing and made me feel better. I still sing it to myself sometimes.

  3. D.C. Canipe

    Does anyone have the image?

  4. Adrinescence C

    Forever with EA 😍

  5. Irene Lavinesia

    "Mad Girl" and "What Will I Remember" are my favorite songs of EA. I would say that she "understand me" because her songs remind me myself and what I've been trought (specialy these two and "I Want My Innocence Back")

  6. shreeja dasgupta

    I cry everytime when i hear this

  7. Lari Sa

    Why it makes me cry.. >.>

  8. Lio Lilo

    best song from her
    another songs nice too but she talk too much than singing
    in this song she sings more than talking

  9. MrsMortalLove

    thank you emilie that you always give me the feeling that i'm not alone in this horrible World!<333 and that I someday finally reach home, far far away from here....I love you

  10. Izabelle Chappell

    Is it just me or does Emilie look very 50s in that pic? Love this song, so beautiful and relatable <3

  11. Dan Gifford

    When I got the chance to see her perform this live during her FLAG tour, I broke down and cried like a baby.

    Jamie Dutton

    I cried too. I was so happy, she was so beautiful. Not another day could come in place with that one. 

  12. Emily Buxton

    I listen to this every time I break down. "Mad Girl, can you believe what they've done to you? Wouldn't they stop when you asked them to leave you alone?" Speaks to me so much.

  13. Eugenia123345

    This song makes me cry almost every time I hear it. So meaningful and beautifully dark.

  14. Eugenia123345

    I know right, I still cry sometimes when I listen to this song. :'( :'(

  15. Eugenia123345

  16. Raven Ried

  18. Dania A.

  19. Andrea Ramos

    Make more your doing a great job :)

  20. Luna Fae

    This song is beautiful. So emotional and haunting. The picture is gorgeous too!

  21. hollisterpatricia

    I found Emilie Autumn after surviving experiences which pressed me deeper and deeper into the ground. The emotions are just right. I love to listen to "I know where You Sleep" ( for a sense of revenge on the man who murdered my son) and Rapunzel (for my lifelong years of shyness) and Gentlemen Aren't Nice for it's fantastic wit and sarcasm. Also, I've always loved the Victorian era ( especially the dark side of its rules and styles. I'll be 60 yrs old this year ,but Emile is inspiring to me.

    Curlers And combat shotguns

    hollisterpatricia my deepest condolences in regards to your son. I realise this is a very old comment but I couldn’t scroll past without saying it touched me. Thank you.

  22. 1988Birgitte

    ohh? I thought Wingedzepher didn't want to be know as "the girl who made the Emilie Autumn videos" now that Wingedzepher's carrier as an artist was beginning..

  23. Lauren H

    Oh emilie please get over to my house and have a tea part with me. We ll talk about our miseries together

  24. sapphiresnowdrop

    Wingzepher heard from Emilie that she didn't like all of the videos everywhere, I believe. And took them down out of respect.

  25. MellsDieIn

    Thanks SO much. This is lovely. Why did Wingedzepher make them private in the first place?
