98: ‘Tin Man’ by Mirinda Lambert

Fergie went to Evanescence, her ex, without defences and surfaces. She did this to show that she could be real with her now, that she truly loved her. Unfortunately, it was too late. Evanescence had felt lied to and Fergie couldn’t say anything to change that.

Fergie already feels vulnerable when she has her defences up. So a rejection given to her while she’s completely open breaks her heart into pieces. It hurts so badly that she wishes she didn’t have a heart at all. She thinks about the story of the tin man who searched for a heart his whole life but never found one. She compares it to the way she faked her way through life. And she thinks that if he had known how much a broken heart feels he would never want one.

And if he wants one so badly, he can have the pieces of hers. She’d gladly take his armour in return.

96: ‘I Bruise Easily’ by Natasha Bedingfield

Fergie has had a messy life. She is therefore deeply insecure. She has, however, hidden that from everyone. Some months ago that cost her a relationship. A woman named Evanescence was going to leave her husband for her, but then she saw one of the surfaces, Fergie put on and realised that the Fergie she knew, was a surface as well.

But this is months ago now. The husband is dead. And Fergie has had a lot of time to think. She goes to Evanescence without surfaces, without defences. She stands naked in front of her, all of her insecurities and bruises visible.

She tells her that she is insecure and is easily hurt. Even when she has her defences up, she feels the blows. So Evanescence will have to be gentle with her when she now gives herself over to her defenceless.

It is scary. This could hurt or heal her. Evanescence could love her or leave her. But if she never tries, she’ll never know how it would have turned out.

94: ‘Two Black Cadillacs’ by Carrie Underwood

It had been a long time since Sara kicked out her married lover.

One day she gets a call from his wife, Evanescence. The wife who apparently doesn’t know that he had cheated on her, which he had led Sara to believe.

Evanescence is shocked to find out. She herself has been flirting with someone else and hidden that, but couldn’t bear the thought of him having an actual, real affair. Sara assures her, that he need not know anything about her flirting. Not yet, anyhow. She should wait for the exact right time to tell him.

Two months later they finally meet each other at the husband’s funeral. both the preacher and his brother have good things to say about him, but the two women don’t even cry. They do all things you’re supposed to do: put a rose down and throw a handful of dirt in the grave, but all with dry eyes. But Evanescence also throws down a letter telling him everything. She has not said anything to him while he was alive.

Sara sees her do it. They smile knowingly and both walk away.

91: ‘Everybody’s Fool’ by Evanescence

Unbeknown to her, Fergie has actually had progress with convincing her lover, Evanescence, to leave her husband. She has actually begun to love her. She loves her because she is so direct, so real and honest. Their relationship was real, unlike the lie her marriage had become.

She goes to tell Fergie at one of her concerts. And she sees how Fergie here pretends to be a pretty, perfect pop star. She sees Evanescence but ignores her.

This hurts Evanescence. She follows her back stage and yells angrily at her. She mocks the adoration her pretence gives her. Fergie has everybody fooled, but not Evanescence. Not anymore. She now knows how insecure she is. Fergie has lost herself in her own lie of strength. And knowing who Fergie really is, Evanescence longer loves her.Evanescence finishes her long speech by telling Fergie that by fooling everyone else, she herself becomes the fool.

69: ‘Broken’ by Seether & Amy Lee

The Creator Of It All, known to her worshippers as Mother Mary, helps her worshippers by appearing in front of them, when they are in need of inspiration and helping them handle their issues. However, she does not concern herself with what happens next – as long as her worshippers are happy. This does not always garner good results. This is among the concerns, her only son, Abraham, has.

Wanting to please her son, she tries to refocus and fix the world.

She succeeds in making the worst issues go away.

This is a lot of work, though. She no longer has the time to help her worshippers when they need her. They start missing her – and she misses them. But now the worst is over and she should have more time for them again. Problem is that their faith in her is fading.

37: ‘ Call me when you’re sober’ by Evanescence

Pink has disappeared. She is gone and Brad is alone. The mental image of her, that he kept with him, while he was imprisoned, grows up in front of him and shouts blame at him: ”Don’t cry to me. If you loved me, you would be here with me. You want me? Come find me. Make up your mind!”

Make up your mind. Stop sitting around drinking and figure out what to do about this! Take the blame instead of blaming it on Them.

This Pink says, what he imagines the real Pink meant with her silence: ”Should I let you fall, lose it all, so maybe you can remember yourself.”

Remember what he did to her and all of Their victims.

”Can’t keep believing! We’re only deceiving ourselves and I’m sick of the lie!”

The lie of their happy life. What can he do to get her back?

Nothing apparently: ”You’re too late.”

She accuses him of not taking the blame, taunts his shameful secret.

”Must be exhausting to lose your own game.” she taunts.

The game he played balancing secret, Them and Pink. Managing the selfhate he has for his shameful secret.

”No wonder, you’re jaded.” she says hatefully. ”You can’t play the victim this time.”

She doesn’t believe his genuine sorrow over his loss of her, when he only calls on her, when he’s drunk: ”You never call me, when you’re sober. You only want it, ’cause it’s over.”

This makes him argue with her, claiming that she was the one, who burned down their paradise. He was out of Them! He was hers alone!

This doesn’t impress her: ”How could I have burned paradise? How could I!? You were never mine!”

He was theirs, chose Them rather than letting her in on his secret.

”Don’t lie to me. Just get your things.”

He has to untangle his life from hers. Declare her dead. He has to let Pink go.

12: ‘Hello’ by Evanescence

Pink has died.

The Old Flame is in denial at first. His mind flashes back to his school days when he first met her. he imagines this young Pink talking with him. She helps him deny Pink’s death and believe, that it’s all a dream. Others try to help him trough it, but he denies their help, believing they’re trying to fix him even though he isn’t broken.

But then he wakes up. Then he knows, it’s all real. But still, The Young Pink stays with him, all that’s left of his life with Pink, only yesterday.
