"When I wrote this song a year and a half ago, a lot of people on Twitter were using "tragic" as a response to everything. So, I was like, "this word needs a theme song". And *bam* "Tragic" was born." ― Alli Fitz, in an interview with The Pop Hub

"Tragic" is an original song by the American singer Alli Fitz, released as a single on August 10th, 2018.

Background

When a fan asked Alli to "spill the tea" about her new single, she responded by saying that the lyric video was done, and the song should be released in August.[1]

Later, Andrew Wade, the producer of the song, responded to that tweet saying "It's tragic that you won’t tell us the song name."[2]

On July 19th, she released the song on iTunes, and until its official release, it could have been pre-ordered. The full version of the song was released in August 10th.

On July 20th, she posted an 8-second snippet of the song's intro.[3] She teased more snippets of the song on August 1st[4], August 2nd[5], August 3rd[6], August 4th[7], and August 9th.[8]

Lyrics

[Chorus]
Tragic
Ain't it tragic
Don't let the words that he says get trapped inside your head

Tragic
Ain't it tragic
He says that you are his next love
Soon you will be his ex love
Like me

[Verse 1]
Isn't it sad that I know his every move
Like what he'll say and what kind of girl he'll choose
He starts with "Do you want to come and chill tonight?"
Poor girl won't ever see that
He's all lies

[Post-Chorus]
Get used to the distance
To your calls going missing
No explanations
He'll play you
He'll play the victim

[Pre-Chorus]
Watch out
That's it
He's done
With this
You're out send the next in
You'll say why it's

[Chorus]
Tragic
Ain't it tragic
Don't let the words that he says get trapped inside your head

Tragic
Ain't it tragic
He says that you are his next love
Soon you will be his ex love
Like me

[Verse 2]
The first two months with him seem so innocent
But now you tell ya girls that he's acting different
You send a million texts but he hasn't answered none
I'm hoping that now she'll see that
She's not his only one

[Post-Chorus]
Get used to the distance
To your calls going missing
No explanations
He'll play you
He'll play the victim

[Pre-Chorus]
Watch out
That's it
I've had enough of this
He's mental you've witnessed
It's time to admit it
Commit him for illness
But he can't commit
This is

[Chorus]
Tragic
Ain't it tragic
Don't let the words that he says get trapped inside your head

Tragic
Ain't it tragic
He says that you are his next love
Soon you will be his ex love
Like me

[Bridge]
The target's locked on
He aims for the kill
Don't worry he doesn't run
Unless he's chasing a thrill

The target's locked on
He aims for the kill
He doesn't run
Unless he's chasing a thrill

Been through the fights
Lost sleep at night
Blindsides when I thought I was right
I see the sign
I see your end love line

Been through the fights
Lost sleep at night
I think it's time for you to say your goodbyes
I see the sign
I see your dead in love
Line

Tragic
Ain't it tragic
Don't let the words that he says get trapped inside your head

Tragic
Ain't it tragic
He says that you are his next love
Soon you will be

[Chorus]
Tragic
Ain't it tragic
Don't let the words that he says get trapped inside your head

Tragic
Ain't it tragic
He says that you are his next love
Soon you will be his ex love
Like me

[Outro]
Tragic
