Song Meaning of Just Give Me A Reason by Pink ft Nate Ruess


"Just Give Me A Reason" by Pink, featuring Nate Ruess of fun., is a poignant pop ballad that explores the complexities of a romantic relationship going through a challenging phase. Released in 2012 as part of Pink's album "The Truth About Love," the song's lyrics tell the story of a couple grappling with issues and seeking understanding.


The narrative unfolds as a conversation between partners who are navigating a troubled relationship. Each verse and chorus delves into the emotions of longing, heartache, and a desire to hold on to the love that once thrived. The central theme revolves around the plea for communication and the need to find a reason to salvage the relationship.


The chorus, with its memorable line "Just give me a reason, just a little bit's enough," encapsulates the essence of the song's message.

Fun, an American band, is represented on "Just Give Me a Reason" by Nate Ruess.

She requested a duet of the song from Ruess.


Lyrics of Just Give Me A Reason by Pink ft Nate Ruess


Right from the start

You were a thief

You stole my heart

And I your willing victim

I let you see the parts of me

That weren't all that pretty

And with every touch you fixed them

 

Now you've been talking in your sleep, oh, oh

Things you never say to me, oh, oh

Tell me that you've had enough

Of our love, our love

 

Just give me a reason

Just a little bit's enough

Just a second we're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

It's in the stars

It's been written in the scars on our hearts

We're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

 

I'm sorry I don't understand

Where all of this is coming from

I thought that we were fine

(Oh, we had everything)

Your head is running wild again

My dear we still have everythin'

And it's all in your mind

(Yeah, but this is happenin')

 

You've been havin' real bad dreams, oh, oh

You used to lie so close to me, oh, oh

There's nothing more than empty sheets

Between our love, our love

Oh, our love, our love, love

 

Just give me a reason

Just a little bit's enough

Just a second we're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

I never stopped

You're still written in the scars on my heart

You're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

 

Oh, tear ducts and rust

I'll fix it for us

We're collecting dust

But our love's enough

You're holding it in

You're pouring a drink

No nothing is as bad as it seems

We'll come clean

 

Just give me a reason

Just a little bit's enough

Just a second we're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

It's in the stars

It's been written in the scars on our hearts

That we're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

 

Just give me a reason

Just a little bit's enough

Just a second we're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

It's in the stars

It's still written in the scars on our hearts

That we're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

 

Oh-oh, we can learn to love again

Oh-oh, can learn to love again

Oh, oh, that we're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again
