lyrics

“Love As Tragedy: A Play in Three Acts”

Verse 1:
Act I was brilliant / We played our parts
so convincing and I still
Remember the lines
You had me going on first dates and I fell
Like Icarus falling away from the sun.

CHORUS
Now that it’s all over and done I notice
You just needed someone to play your damsel
Now that I can see things a little clearer
I feel sorry for the next girl
You will always see (you’ll always see)
Love as tragedy.


Act II was gripping
She came out of nowhere, storm in a teacup
The irony bare
You seem so honest
Playing your parts so convincing but she
Is speaking my lines.

Now that it’s all over and done I notice
You just needed someone to play your damsel
Now that I can see things a little clearer
I feel sorry for the next girl
You will always see (you’ll always see)
Love as tragedy.


Now that it’s all over and done I notice
You just needed someone to play your damsel
Now that I can see things a little clearer
I feel sorry for the next girl

Now that it’s all over and done I notice
You just needed someone to play your damsel
Now that I can see things a little clearer
I feel sorry for the next girl
You will always see (you’ll always see)
Love as tragedy.
You will always see (you’ll always see)
Love as tragedy.

Don’t let me sit through another minute
Cuz Act III’s the part that
I couldn’t get right.
And you’ll be persistent
‘til somebody gets it
But I don’t intend to find out tonight.
