Tragic Girl

Recommended Posts

What a stunning song. I am shocked that it was not included anywhere, that this didn't have an official release. Not even as a bonus track for Living For Love or in any SuperDeluxe...

Such a beautiful performance, melody, lyrics... I get emotional every time I listen to it. This abussive and toxic relation ship is so common nowadays, to dismiss oneself, to lose selfworth and in the end to discover that the other person didn't really love you because he/she was idealising a persona that you are not. And when you discover it, you wonder if you were so horrible that the other person had to imagine a better version of yourself? Selfsteem goes down the drain

 

 

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

It reminds me of I Can't Forget a bit, they have a similar melody and vocals.

I adore this song, one of my favourites from the RH situation.

You were so good at pretending that you care
I was alone, even with you standing there

I'm having a deep Rebel Heart moment today. I'm listening in Soundcloud to many fanmade remixes, megamixes, and songs pop up and I have enjoyed a beautiful time while working. 

But this song in special has been a bit forgotten by fans. It will go down as other gems, I'm afraid.

The level of pain in some songs really makes you wonder.

I think so too, it makes you realize how bad the situation was and how she diminished her personality because of him.

This SHOULD of been on the album. One of those absolute heart breakingingly sad ballads that Madonna sings with incredible emotion and sincerity.  The lyrics are full of melancholy without being mawkish and the melody is achingly beautiful. 

Those who support that cretin Guy Ritchie should listen to the lyrics of this song and Lovespent.  Thank God she divorced that gold digging user.

Yes, when you hear the angry songs about him you go: fuck u Guy R!

But when you hear this kind of pain you feel so incredible angry at him.

The lyrics are great, but I really like it better in the other demo version

Tragic Girl and the slower demo version of Joan of Arc are the type of sad personal songs that most other singers can only dream of writing and then singing with the same depth.
