Lohan conveys a warranted mix of frustration and love toward her dad on "Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father)" and "My Innocence." Battered and bruised by life, she elects to "dig through the bad [days] to get to the good ones" on "A Beautiful Life (La Bella Vita)." A girl wants a new beau to open up so she can get to know him better ("A Little More Personal").
