98: ‘Tin Man’ by Miranda 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.

87: ‘Sucker for Pain’ by Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa & Imagine Dragons w/ Logic & Ty Dolla $ign ft X Ambassadors

Our three main characters are all working towards something at the moment.

Sara teaches young girls to dance. More than that She teaches young girls to be confident. She takes the pain from her own life and uses it to help them. She makes this so much part of her identity she has tattoos dedicated to it. She has a bit of an attitude. This resonates with young girls who also have the world against them and they gravitate towards her classes, even if they aren’t dedicated to dancing. But she won’t allow them to put in less effort in it because of that. But it does make her very aware of her responsibility, and she continually pressures herself to live up to it.

Will loves partying, but he is also a pre-med. And at the moment he is dedicating more time to that responsibility. He’s going to be a doctor with people’s lives in his hands and he wants to be ready for it. It’s hard and brings a lot of sleepless nights much less enjoyable than the ones he spends partying or with his on-off girlfriend, but it’s worth it.

Fergie is focused too, but her goal is not as noble. She is trying to get to get a woman to leave her husband for her.It is not going well and that hurts. But no way she’s letting the husband (or anyone else for that matter) know that. She keeps up the act that she’s going to steal her from him, even if it is nowhere near true. and unfortunately, she can’t party her way out of this one.

86: ‘Nobody Knows’ by P!nk

Fergie hasn’t had an easy life. But she’s okay now. She has found a way to be herself. And she has found love. Unfortunately, the woman she loves doesn’t love her back. But she’s happy to escalate their relationship to get a break from a boring marriage.

Fergie knows that this situation is bad. It’s another wrong choice in a string of wrong choices. And nobody knows how much it hurts. And like hell, she’s going to tell people.

So she gets up every day, living life, technically having what she wants and not letting anyone know how alone she feels. Or how familiar this feels…

83: ‘Girls like girls’ by Hayley Kiyoko

Fergie makes a friend while partying with Will. A little more than a friend, actually. Trouble is, she is married. Luckily, her husband is often away, so they have a chance to grow close. While Fergie likes men too, right now she doesn’t feel like being with one. She just wants to be with this woman.

But then the husband starts being home more and notices how much the two women go out together and that they sometimes kiss.

He confronts Fergie, and she has no problem admitting that she intends to steal his wife from him. So he best watch out.
