  Tragedy Lyrics


Wind and storm (ooh-ooh)

Gone's the sun (the sun, ooh)

From the stars my dark has come

You've gone from me, oh, oh, tragedy (ah, ah, ah, ah, ah)


Oh, come back

Have me here

Hold me, love

Be sincere

You've gone from me, oh, oh, tragedy (ee-ee, ee-ee, ee-ee, ee-ee)


(ah, ah, ah)

Like smoke from a fire

Of love oh, oh, oh, ooh

Our dreams have all gone

Above oh, oh, oh, ooh


Blown by wind

Kissed by snow

All that's left is the dark be-ee-ee-low

You've gone from me, oh, oh, tragedy

(Oh, oh, oh)
