If you could envision
The meaning of a Tragedy ooooo
You might be surprised to hear it's you and me
When it comes down to it
You never made the most of it
Oooo so I cried, cried, cried, and now I say goodbye
And I won't be made a fool of...
Don't call this love


When did you decide that I didn't have enough to buy?
Forgive and forget you a thousand times
For the fire and the sleepless nights
And I won't be made a fool of...
Don't call this love

Don't call this love

Lalalalalalalala lalalala Love
Lalalala Love Lalalalalala Love
Oooh!

Why did you feel the need to prove that everybody else was right?
No... I... won't fight

Oh, you're my Tragedy... Tragedy
Oh, you're my Tragedy ooohh
This is ohhh no no no

Lalalalalalalala lalalala Love
Lalalalalala Love Lalalala Love
Lalalalalalalala lalalala Love
Lalalalala
Love

    <3 to all those collectors of hearts I wish you well. For life is too short, to always be on the hunt. so let's just slow it down and be getting it from the start... the 1 chance to find a loving <3 heart.

    Tragedy is rescuing you from pursuing the unhealthy relationship... It maybe a tragedy but it gives you lots of lessons to learn and strength to face and heal the wounds... And a newly defined "you"

    You can't get past your ex so you think of how horrible things were with him/her. You try and try to stop thinking about them, but you just keep remembering all the times you told them that you loved them. You don't want that to be real love. You want more, but you're scared love is just one big... Tragedy.

    When you finally realize that the person you care for is no good, and the excuses that you have made for them have run out.
