Riff: Pink – “Just Give Me A Reason”

Feb 19, 2013

Right from the start/You were a thief/You stole my heart/And I your willing victim

from Just Give Me A Reason lyrics by Pink

The fact that this duet with fun.’s Nate Ruess was inspired by a hypothetical argument over butter is infinitely more interesting than the song itself as Pink pleads with her despondent partner to give their ‘bent’ relationship one final reprieve on a tired-sounding Tedder-lite ballad.
