What I’m Listening To, part 4


The way these posts work is, I’m going to post the lyrics with my thoughts in between the lines like this.


P!nk – Try

Ever wonder about what he’s doing?


I wonder what he’s doing all the time, but it rarely does me any good to ask him.  I get an answer half the times I ask.


How it all turned to lies?
Sometimes I think that it’s better to never ask why


Or better to just not ask at all.


Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
You’ve gotta get up and try, try, try
Gotta get up and try, try, try
You gotta get up and try, try, try


I’ve been burned more times than I can count.  Too many torches carried I suppose.  None of them hurt any less than the last one either.  If anything, the burn hurts more as I get older and my time runs out.


Eh, eh, eh

Funny how the heart can be deceiving
More than just a couple times
Why do we fall in love so easy?
Even when it’s not right


Falling in love when it’s not right is something I’ve done too many times too.  So foolish I’ve been.  But why is it so easy!?!?!


Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
You’ve gotta get up and try, try, try
Gotta get up and try, try, try
You gotta get up and try, try, try

Ever worry that it might be ruined
And does it make you wanna cry?
When you’re out there doing what you’re doing
Are you just getting by?
Tell me are you just getting by, by, by?


Pretty sure I’ve just been getting by for a long long time now and I just didn’t notice.  Not until Marshal came into my life and somewhat derailed it.


Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
You’ve gotta get up and try, try, try
Gotta get up and try, try, try
You gotta get up and try, try, try
Gotta get up and try, try, try
Gotta get up and try, try, try
You gotta get up and try, try, try
Gotta get up and try, try, try

You gotta get up and try, try, try
Gotta get up and try, try, try


But in the end, she’s right.  I’ve got to get up and keep trying or else I’ll never find anyone.
