Here I lie
In a lost and lonely part of town
Held in time
In a world of tears I slowly drown
Goin' home
I just can't make it all alone
I really should be holding you
Holding you
Loving you, loving you

Tragedy
When the feeling's gone and you can't go on
It's tragedy
When the morning cries and you don't know why
It's hard to bear
With no one to love you, you're
Goin' nowhere
Tragedy
When you lose control and you got no soul
It's tragedy
When the morning cries and you don't know why
It's hard to bear
With no one beside you, you're
Goin' nowhere
When the feeling's gone and you can't go on

Night and day
There's a burning down inside of me
Burning love
With a yearning that won't let me be
Down I go
And I just can't take it all alone
I really should be holding you
Holding you
Loving you, loving

Tragedy
When the feeling's gone and you can't go on
It's tragedy
When the morning cries and you don't know why
It's hard to bear
With no one to love you, you're
Goin' nowhere
Tragedy
When you lose control and you got no soul
It's tragedy
When the morning cries and you don't know why
It's hard to bear
With no one beside you, you're
Goin' nowhere

Tragedy

    General Comment:Well, I'm guessing it's pretty much about either:
    1. Being alone
    2. Being alone and wanting someone
    3. A breakup
    Amazing song, the Bee Gees are awesome.

    General Comment:Sounds like a really sad break-up song to me.
    In any event, it's a high point for the Bee Gees.
    I'm not a huge fan of theirs, but I can't deny this song its' due.

    General Comment:watch the nbc documentary on how they made the explosive sounds -it's pretty cool.
    this has to be the most sensatioal breakup song of all time. been 30 years since it was released, and it still sounds so superawesome...
