I Love You in Your Tragic Beauty
The Legendary Pink Dots Lyrics


I watched you in your tragic beauty walk beneath my window.
Eyes aimed high, but unfocused . . . . sure, you never noticed me.
You always wore the same dress; always bore the same
expression: "It's a loveless world so what's the point of looking?
Let it be . . ." I considered throwing roses--thought I'd maybe
wave a flag. Had to try and force some small connection--
but, there's a snag. It's my confession that I watch you in
my tragic isolation. In my fear . . . that's the way it's been
for years. That's the way it will always be . . .

Te observé en tu trágica hermosura
caminar debajo de mi ventana
los ojos mirando hacia arriba
pero desenfocados
nunca te fijaste en mi

Siempre llevas el mismo vestido
Siempre soportando la misma expresión:
"Es un mundo sin amor, entonces ¿qué sentido tiene mirar? Déjalo así"

pensé en lanzarte rosas
pensé tal vez en ondear una bandera
intenté forzar alguna pequeña conexión
pero hay un obstáculo

confieso que te miro desde mi trágico aislamiento
desde mi miedo... así ha sido durante años
así es como siempre será...
siempre será...

I watched you in your tragic beauty walk beneath my window
Eyes aimed high, but unfocused
sure, you never noticed me
You always wore the same dress;
always bore the same expression:
"It's a loveless world so what's the point of looking? Let it be"
I considered throwing roses, thought I'd maybe wave a flag.
Had to try and force some small connection
But, there's a snag.
It's my confession that I watch you in my tragic isolation.
In my fear , that's the way it's been
For years. That's the way it will always be . .

I'm 372 years old and I'm listening to this song because I have ears.

Enjoy your youth! It doesn't last.

When I saw the Pink Dots in Cambridge a couple years ago, my favorite moment of the show was in between songs, someone in the audience called out a request, "Tragic Beauty!"

Edward leaned over the microphone slowly, and in his low, ghoulish whisper of a voice he responded, "No."

He doesn’t accept requests, yet I’ve been blessed to be present when they played past material!💎💜🙏

Yup. He did that a bunch here, too. "Lisa's Party!" "Nope." "Princess Coldheart!" "Nope." Until somebody hit upon City of Needles, and he kind of perked up a bit, and said "okay", and launched into a raucous, cacophonous version of that song. The end of that fucker was pretty close to what a nitrous oxide rush sounds like.

Beautiful song; beautiful voice; beautiful lyrics.
