We're starting to come down to the wire on this monumental effort from our Ms. P!nk. Where Did the Beat Go? is a slow to mid-tempo track that's about cheating, from the cheater's point of view. The infidelity was a consequence of relationship troubles, and it causes the singer to lament not the act, but the reason behind it.
I can hear planes flying over my head
Just hours before you occupied my bed
In our darkness, we conjured up sunlight
In our haste, our need, our thirst
We lost our sight
But I was inspired tracing the lines on your face
To the poetry the first time I heard your name
When I trip from your lips my heart was like a kick drum
And it silenced the guilt I wasn't raised to hurt anyone
This song is not one of those tracks that jump right out at you, like Just Give Me a Reason, True Love, or the title cut, but it is another brilliantly written piece of real life. The melancholy tune provides yet another aspect of all there is to know about the truth about love. Check out Where Did the Beat Go?
