Tragic Girl Appreciation


Recommended Posts

Guest Pud Whacker

this song is so radically fabulous.

I tried to change but I couldn't help myself
I am to blame, I used to be someone else
No one got through, nothing came inside the gate
You made me feel when my heart was set on hate

I convinced myself that I was invincible
But I didn't know that feelings can lie, too
You exposed my deepest wound, but I felt so safe
Didn't know that you had never loved me

Every time you say good-bye
It feels like the end of the world
Every time I start to cry
I feel like the most tragic girl

You were so good at pretending that you care
I was alone, even with you standing there
You made me doubt everyone that cared for me
I shut them out so that you'd be all I see

I convinced myself that I was invincible
But I didn't know that feelings can lie too
You exposed my deepest wound, but I felt so safe
Didn't know that you had never loved me

Every time you say good-bye
It feels like the end of the world
Every time I start to cry
I feel like the most tragic girl

Every time you say good-bye
It feels like the end of the world
Every time I start to cry
I feel like the most tragic girl

Love it so. Especially this line...

"...I was alone, even with you standing there

You made me doubt everyone that cared for me
I shut them out so that you'd be all I see"

I love Tragic Girl. It speaks perfectly about a bad relationship i had. I wonder if she wrote this one with Rick Nowels like Beautiful scar because it reminds me a lot of other tracks they did together in theme, lyrics, music and mood. I adore this track and it's on my Rebel Heart album.

Agree with you Roland Barthes about everything you said about Tragic Girl. I only discovered it about a month back and now am obsessed with it. It is just too beautiful to never be properly released. I could even see it being used for promotion for a heart-breaking tv show or movie as the song in the background or advert. This happened with "The last day on Earth" by one of my favourite singers Kate Miller Heidke. The song was used on an advert for a sad storyline on Neighbours that was coming up and so many people were wondering what the beautiful sad song was. Her record company rush released it as a single and it became huge. It was then also used on the the tv show the Big C.

I think Tragic Girl should be used like that, the same way I think Messiah could be used for a super-natural or ghost movie. Love to think out of the box ! Madonna's songs from Rebel Heart allbum are too wonderful not to be heard by the masses
