Just Give Me a Reason - Pink (feat. Nate Ruess)



The Experience:
Any relationship starts to collect dust with time. The temptation? “I’ve had enough of our love.” But think twice. Maybe "we're not broken, just bent, and we can learn to love again." Love only lasts if you’re willing to give.  "Just a little bit’s enough." You only need to leave your grudges behind and listen for "just a second.Give love another chance, and you may be surprised with what it can do...

Music Video:
The music video does a great job of making us feel the loneliness of love on the rocks, and the power of hope that refuses to die. As usual, Pink does a great job of getting inside the heart. Also as usual,  she shows a lot of skin, and that distracts from the heart-break and hope at the center of the song.


My Take:
Pink is right on. Some marriages break up over the smallest disputes. If they gave each other a chance and learned to forgive, or  waited for the light at the end of the tunnel instead of throwing in the towel, we’d have happier couples and happier kids.


Ask Yourself:
How seriously do you take your relationships? Do you give yourself away easily? Do you throw others away without a second thought?

LYRICS:

Right from the start
You were a thief
You stole my heart
And I, your willing victim

I let you see the parts of me
That weren't all that pretty
And with every touch you fixed them

Now you've been talking in your sleep
Oh, oh, things you never say to me
Oh, oh, tell me that you've had enough
Of our love, our love

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second
We're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our hearts
We're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

I'm sorry I don't understand
Where all of this is coming from
I thought that we were fine
(Oh, we had everything)

Your head is running wild again
My dear, we still have everythin'
And it's all in your mind
(Yeah, but this is happenin')

You've been havin' real bad dreams
Oh, oh, you used to lie so close to me
Oh, oh, there's nothing more than empty sheets
Between our love, our love
Oh, our love, our love

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second
We're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

I never stopped
You're still written in the scars on my heart
You're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Oh, tear ducts and rust
I'll fix it for us
We're collecting dust
But our love's enough

You're holding it in
You're pouring a drink
No, nothing is as bad as it seems
We'll come clean

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second
We're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our hearts
We're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second
We're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our hearts
We're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Oh, oh, we can learn to love again
Oh, oh, we can learn to love again
Oh, oh, that we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
