Appearances

Overview

"Tragic Girl" was recorded very late during the Pinkerton sessions, but was forgotten about until work began on the Pinkerton Deluxe Edition in 2010. The song was found unlabelled in the vaults while looking for masters to use on the deluxe edition. As few people were around during the recording of the song (Adam Orth is featured on bass instead of Matt Sharp), Rivers was the only one to remember it when they played back the tape. It was not revealed to the public until the announcement of the deluxe version of Pinkerton in 2010. Rivers also tweeted that the song would be like Nirvana's "You Know You're Right" for Pinkerton fans. "Tragic Girl" made its live debut on the Weezer Cruise in January 2012.

Lyrics

When you kiss me
and say you love me
it makes me feel so good.
I want to break down
and give in to you.
I want to believe that you’re the one.

You give me my pills
and sing a strange song
and all my hurting goes away.
Start to drift off
with you beside me;
I want to believe that you’re the one.

Cry and cry and let it out,
we have to face that it’s over now.
Even as I anoint your door
I’m looking out for something more.
Cry and cry, I’m crying, too
Cause no one touches me like you do.
I don’t want my mom to know
that I’ve been a dirty boy.

I try my darndest
to be a bastard,
I want you to think that I don’t care.
But I feel sorry
and you’re so pretty
You start to cry and I kiss your mouth.

Cry and cry and let it out,
we have to face that it’s over now.
Even as I anoint your door
I’m looking out for something more.
Cry and cry, I’m crying, too
Cause no one touches me like you do.
I don’t want my mom to know
that I’ve been a dirty boy.

You’re a tragic girl,
you lead a tragic life.
I’m just meant to be
your latest tragedy.

Ain’t no butterfly girl.
This ain’t no butterfly love.
I’m just meant to be
your latest tragedy.

I try my darndest
to be a bastard.
I want you to think that I don’t care.
You’re so pretty
and I feel sorry.
You start to cry and I kiss your mouth.

I don’t want my mom to know
that I’ve been a dirty boy.

You’re a tragic girl,
you lead a tragic life.
I’m just meant to be
your latest tragedy.

Ain’t no butterfly girl.
This ain’t no butterfly love.
I’m gonna have to be
your latest tragedy.
