Pink on Marriage: “That’s What Relationships are For”

PINK performs the song “I Don’t Believe You” on possibly my favorite episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show. The singer, one of the best-selling artists of all time, has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide, talks candidly about her marriage to Carey Hart, who she met at the X Games in 2001. During their long separation in 2008, the couple sought marriage counseling in hopes of reconciliation. In February 2010 on Oprah, Pink confirmed that she and Hart were back together. On June 2, 2011, Pink had their daughter, Willow Sage Hart.  Pink maintains it was through writing this song, and sharing it with her husband, how important it was for them to stay the course in their marriage rather than start over again. “That’s what relationships are for — to teach us about ourselves, and to help us grow,” she says. “I’m glad you’re back together,” Oprah told the singer. This past January (2012), Pink and Hart celebrated six years of marriage: “I haven’t killed you yet,” Pink jokingly Tweeted her hubby on their anniversary, “But give it time darling.” 

In a time of uncertainty for the fate of so many marriages, and the institution in general, I’m glad they stayed the course too.

P!nk – I Don’t Believe You (Acoustic Live On Oprah 2010) HD

“I Don’t Believe You”

I don’t mind it
I don’t mind at all
It’s like you’re the swing set
and I’m the kid that falls
It’s like the way we fight, the times I’ve cried,
we come to blows And every night
the passion’s there so it’s gotta be right, right?

No I don’t believe you
When you say don’t come around here no more
I won’t remind you
You said we wouldn’t be apart
No, I don’t believe you
When you say you don’t need me anymore
So don’t pretend
To not love me at all
I don’t mind it
I still don’t mind at all
 It’s like one of those bad dreams when you can’t wake up
 Looks like you’ve given up, you’ve had enough
 But I want more no I won’t stop ’cause
 I just know you’ll come around… right?
Just don’t stand there and watch me fall
’cause I, ’cause I still don’t mind at all
It’s like the way we fight, the times I cry, we come to blows
And every night the passion’s there so it’s gotta be right, right?

One thought on “Pink on Marriage: “That’s What Relationships are For””

  1. Pink is one of the most talented musicians around, and if you have ever seen any of her interviews she is extremely down to earth and quite funny. She is one of my absolute favorite singers. Coolest thing is she actually sings and her songs have deep meanings. I had not seen this version thanks .
