An Epiphany: Pink - Try

I know this will sound strange. I've been listening to this song at the restaurant  for well over a year.  It's played on Sirius XM many times a day, but I've never listened to the lyrics. I've always liked Pink's passionate delivery and vocal range, but for me it was background music on a daily basis.

Then, a friend sent a link to this video and I was promptly blown away. After viewing it a couple of times, with jaw resting on the keyboard, I hunted for the lyrics and BAM! I smacked up against my previous life. The video is powerful enough, but the lyrics really struck a chord  for my life today. This gal is a true talent; she can dance, sing, and perform dramatic choreography - and is damned good at it all. Watch the video.  The lyrics are below. Enjoy!



Lyrics:

"Try"

Ever wonder about what he's doing
How it all turned to lies
Sometimes I think that it's better to never ask why

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

Eh, eh, eh

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

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

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

You gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
And so it goes.
