My next influential song is P!nk’s Try from The Truth About Love album (listen to it here). The other half and I had split up a couple of times in the fist fourteen months we were together (long story that I don’t particularly want to get into but it ties in with why I want to be a better person). The second time we had broken up for a short period this song had came out and I connected with it straight away. I don’t know if it was because we had temporarily broken up at the time or if I’m just a soppy romantic.
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
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
