Beautiful Tragedy

At 17, she thought she had the world 
Butterflies, tears of joy in her eyes 
She held on tight, no in between lies
Time to let go, here comes the surprise

How do you tell someone you love them 
Three days later, scrap everything to come
And everything that's been made 
She was too blind to see it all fade

She's been tossed and turned before 
Flip the switch and it's over, oh nothing more

We need more than the love we think deserve 
Maybe someday, this will all be okay 
She's learned something new, she's gained a clue 
But the tears are the beat to a new song 
And maybe 
Maybe this is just a beautiful tragedy
Beautiful tragedy

Rewind to the time everything was fine
She was more than a shadow left behind
Left behind in memories that were kind 
She's drowning in a storm of rain
It pounds harder and harder 
She feels the pain

She needs someone to ease her mind 
There's something out there new to find 
There was much to say when she ran away 
The words weren't more than a game being played 
But she didn't dare to know how much they weighed

She's been tossed and turned before 
Flip the switch and it's over, oh nothing more

We need more than the love we think deserve 
Maybe someday, this will all be okay 
She's learned something new, she's gained a clue 
But the tears are the beat to a new song 
And maybe 
Maybe this is just a beautiful tragedy
Beautiful tragedy

Should've known she doesn't like surprises 
All she's asking is to be on the same page 
But read on without her then mocked her rage 
There's only sincerity in her eyes 
As something negligent was on the rise

She's still standing here 
And nothing will knock her down 
But everything that's been made 
She was too blind to see it all fade

We need more than the love we think deserve 
Maybe someday, this will all be okay 
She's learned something new, she's gained a clue 
But the tears are the beat to a new song 
And maybe 
Maybe this is just a beautiful tragedy
Beautiful tragedy

Maybe this is just a beautiful tragedy
Beautiful tragedy
