"Beam Me Up" is a song recorded by P!nk for her sixth studio album, The Truth About Love. It appears as the ninth track on the album. It has been deemed by many critics to be one of the highlights of the album, and has received comparisons to previous P!nk songs such as "I Don't Believe You" and "Dear Mr. President".

BackgroundEdit

The title of the song may be a reference to the popular phrase "Beam me up, Scotty", as heard on Star Trek. According to a live webchat with her fans the day of the album's relase, P!nk stated that the song was written about a very close friend of hers who lost a child a year ago at a very young age. She later stated that it would be a very hard song to sing on tour (after saying this, it was dropped from the setlist, possibly due to the fact that it didn't fit with the theme of the tour or the fact that it was too hard for her to sing during the tour). She further stated there were tears during the writing of the song, and it was probably the hardest song to write for the album. [1]

When speaking to Spotify about the song, P!nk referred to it as a song about "the loss of a loved one... the loss of a child." She went on to say, "It's very, very, very, very, very personal, and... uh, it's... very close to my heart." [2]

LyricsEdit

There's a whole 'nother conversation going on
In a parallel universe.
Where nothing breaks and nothing hurts.
There's a waltz playin' frozen in time
Blades of grass on tiny bare feet
I look at you and you're lookin' at me.

Could you beam me up,
Give me a minute, I don't know what I'd say in it
I'd probably just stare, happy just to be there, holding your face
Beam me up,
Let me be lighter, I'm tired of being a fighter,
I think a minute's enough,
Just beam me up.

Saw a blackbird soarin' in the sky,
Barely a breath I caught one last sight
Tell me that was you sayin' goodbye,
There are times I feel the shiver and cold,
It only happens when I'm on my own,
That's how you tell me I'm not alone

Could you beam me up,
Give me a minute, I don't know what I'd say in it
I'd probably just stare, happy just to be there, holding your face
Beam me up,
Let me be lighter, I'm tired of being a fighter,
I think a minute's enough,
Just beam me up.

In my head I see your baby blues
I hear your voice and I, I break in two and now there's
One of me, with you

So when I need you can I send you a sign
I'll burn a candle and turn off the lights
I'll pick a star and watch you shine

Just beam me up,
Give me a minute, I don't know what I'd say in it
I'd probably just stare, happy just to be there, holding your face
Beam me up,
Let me be lighter, I'm tired of being a fighter,
I think, a minute's enough,
Beam me up
Beam me up
Beam me up
Could you beam me up.
