The Popdust Files: analysis, between the lines, lyrics, pink, try

Pink's The Truth About Love finds the weirdly underrated Popdust 40 artist waxing poetic on all sorts of romance-related topics, from falling in lust to stewing over an ex. On "Try," she takes a wise-older-sister stance as she tries to cheer up a recent victim of heartbreak. (It's all in a day's work.) But is she secretly engaging in self-analysis in her consolation? To the lyrics!

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

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 worried 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 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
