Background

"One of my best friends, Sonja, who has been with me since I was twenty-three years old, she has metastasized cancer in her lungs and in her brain. It’s stage four. And it’s really hard: it’s hard to watch, it’s hard to witness, it’s hard to know what to say. But I love her so much, and it’s so important that we continue to do research to find a cure. I wrote a song about her on the album, it’s about how me and all of our girlfriends would get together and cry without her when she’s not around, because we love her so much. We just want to be strong with her. The lyric is, "Sisters never pack up, we always run back, love/Seven years ago I said you’d make it Sonja, was Joanne’s friend, tough girl’s on the mend, so when I’m feeling small, I toss that cork, and call". The song is about womanhood and sticking together and encouraging one another and teaching each other that it’s ok to cry together and need one another, and that we can’t do it alone. I would say to use her as an inspiration, and tell you that I have watched her fight every day, trying to laugh, and go every moment with the biggest smile on her face of hope and faith for the future. I feel connected to you, even though I don’t know you, because I know her. " - Lady Gaga to Radio.com

Lyrics

I was 23
She was 35
I was spiralling out
And she was so alive
A Texas girl real strong
Taught me this strong song
So when I start to bawl
She says, "let your teardrops fall"

All the Pinot, Pinot Grigio girls
Pour your heart out
Watch your blues turn gold
All the Pinot, Pinot Grigio girls
Keep it real cold
'Cause it's a fired up world
Oh, oh, make it all make sense
Oh, oh, does it all make sense?
Oh, oh, make it all make sense

Sisters never pack up
We always run back love
Seven years ago
I said you'd make it so
Sonja was Joanne's friend
Tough girls on the mend
So when I'm feeling small
I toss that cork and call

All the Pinot, Pinot Grigio girls
Pour your heart out
Watch your blues turn gold
All the Pinot, Pinot Grigio girls
Keep it real cold
'Cause it's a fired up world
Oh, oh, make it all make sense
Oh, oh, make it all make sense
Oh, oh, does it all make sense?

So we'll turn on a bachelorette
Dye Ashley's hair red
And then we'll have our sixth
Spice girl in this bitch

All the Pinot, Pinot Grigio girls
Pour your heart out
Watch your blues turn gold
All the Pinot, Pinot Grigio girls
Keep it real cold
'Cause it's a fired up world

All the Pinot, Pinot Grigio girls
Gather 'round now
Watch your blues turn gold
All the Pinot, Pinot Grigio girls
Keep it real cold
'Cause it's a fired up world
