Just Give Me A Reason

Lyrics

playRight from the start
playYou were a thief
playYou stole my heart
playAnd I your willing victim
playI let you see the parts of me
playThat weren't all that pretty
playAnd with every touch you fixed them

playNow you've been talking in your sleep, oh, oh
playThings you never say to me, oh, oh
playTell me that you've had enough
playOf our love, our love

playJust give me a reason
playJust a little bit's enough
playJust a second we're not broken just bent
playAnd we can learn to love again
playIt's in the stars
playIt's been written in the scars on our hearts
playWe're not broken just bent
playAnd we can learn to love again

playI'm sorry I don't understand
playWhere all of this is coming from
playI thought that we were fine
play(Oh, we had everything)
playYour head is running wild again
playMy dear we still have everythin'
playAnd it's all in your mind
play(Yeah, but this is happenin')

playYou've been havin' real bad dreams, oh, oh
playYou used to lie so close to me, oh, oh
playThere's nothing more than empty sheets
playBetween our love, our love
playOh, our love, our love

playJust give me a reason
playJust a little bit's enough
playJust a second we're not broken just bent
playAnd we can learn to love again
playI never stopped
playYou're still written in the scars on my heart
playYou're not broken just bent
playAnd we can learn to love again

playOh, tear ducts and rust
playI'll fix it for us
playWe're collecting dust
playBut our love's enough
playYou're holding it in
playYou're pouring a drink
playNo nothing is as bad as it seems
playWe'll come clean

playJust give me a reason
playJust a little bit's enough
playJust a second we're not broken just bent
playAnd we can learn to love again
playIt's in the stars
playIt's been written in the scars on our hearts
playThat we're not broken just bent
playAnd we can learn to love again

playJust give me a reason
playJust a little bit's enough
playJust a second we're not broken just bent
playAnd we can learn to love again
playIt's in the stars
playIt's been written in the scars on our hearts
playThat we're not broken just bent
playAnd we can learn to love again

playOh, we can learn to love again
playOh, we can learn to love again
playOh, oh, that we're not broken just bent
playAnd we can learn to love again

Play with the song, fill the gaps

meaningMeaning

This song talks about a couple whose flame is gone out of their relationship. They feel like they don't love each other as much as they used to, and they're still together, only because they feel like they're obliged to.

Pink made the following quote to spotify: “Sometimes [one partner] can be like, ‘The way you passed me the butter this morning, I kinda feel like we’re going to be over in a month and we need to talk’ and he’s like, ‘I just passed you the f—ing butter, what are you talking about?’ and that’s how I felt the song should go, ‘We’re growing apart, you don’t spoon any more, like it’s all over’.”

vocabulary Vocabulary

sheets

bed linen sometime "sheets" refer to the garb worn by the KKK. KKK wear "sheets." As a black or non-white person, it is typical to be afraid of KKK and their "sheets"


rust

Metals rust when combined with water or damp air and they deteriorate. When iron rusts, it gets a red cover, when silver rusts it turns black, when copper rusts it turns green, when your love (your English or any other ability) rusts, it gets more difficult to use because if you don't speak English for a long time, it gets rusty and you find it much more difficult to speak it because you forgot many things. If your love gets rusty, your ability to love deteriorates, but if it "turns to rust" then all of it is rust, so now it's useless, you can't love.
