London: Amy Winehouse’s first lines have been discovered in a stash of dumped schoolbooks.
The books were found in rubbish on a North London street.
They also include diary entries the Rehab singer made when 17 in 2001, the year before she landed a recording contract, reports the Sun.
In one Amy, who has fought cocaine and booze addiction, urges herself to "live like the bombshell I really am".
In another she tells of her lust for a fella named Felix and writes: "There`s too much sexual tension."
Amy, now 27, scrawled lyrics amid course work for an English Literature A-level.
She wrote "Amy`s Songs" on the front of a red notebook.
Lines include: "I`m digging myself into a hole/These days I``ll just work when once I had so much soul."
Another verse starts: "Drain my drink & order more."
And a third - "Find someone with whom I can come undone" - predicted her future with junkie Blake Fielder-Civil.
