P!nk's "The Truth About Love" Track Reviews: "The Truth About Love"


                                              The truth about love comes at 3am
                                                     You wake up f**ked up and you grab a pen
                                                           And you say to yourself
                                                               I'm gonna figure it out, I'm gonna crack that code

                                                                  Gonna break it break it down
                                                            I'm tired of all these questions
                                                  And, now it's just annoying
                                                Cause, no one has the answer
                                              So I guess it's up to me
To find the truth about love...

The title track to P!nk's The Truth About Love lays out the basis for the entire set and it just happens to be one of the album's most ear-pleasing songs.   Listening to the lyrics, you can almost tell that this is where it all began.  Love is, of course, a wondrous thing that's hard to define.  Love is a lot of things, the good and the bad, the crazy and sad, the mysterious and the obviouss, and P!nk has thought of a few things that none of us ever have concerning love...

                                                    ...As it comes, and it goes
                                    A strange fascination with his lips and his toes
                                  Morning breath, bedroom eyes on a smiling face                                        
                                       Sheet marks rug burn, and a sugar glaze
                                     The shock and the awe that can eat you raw
                                                      If the truth about love

Oh, and there's more...

The truth about love is it's nasty and salty
It's the regret in the morning, it's the smelling of armpits
It's wings, and songs
And trees, and birds

It's all the poetry that you ever heard

Terror coup d'etat, life line forget-me-nots

It's the hunt and the kill

The schemes and the plots

The truth about love is it's blood, and it's guts
Purebreds and mutts

Sandwiches without the crust

It takes your breath, cause it leaves a scar

But those untouched never got never got very far

It's rage and it's hate
And a sick twist of fate

And that's the truth about love

The truth about love

Oh yeah, the truth about love is it's all sorts of things, the stuff everybody can identify with, the stuff love brings.  Anyone who's ever been in love can identify with our heroine's unique take on the truth about love, and to top it off, the song's got this catchy, finger-snapping rhythm that makes it one of the most pleasing songs on the whole set.  I've already heard from several people that it's one of their favorite tracks on the album, and it's not all too different in theme from my fave, True Love.  I can definitely hear The Truth About Love on radios everywhere sometime in the future, so if you don't know it, take a listen to it here.
