"The Truth About Love" "Walk of Shame"

"Beam Me Up" is a song recorded by P!nk for her sixth studio album, The Truth About Love. It was written by P!nk and Billy Mann and produced by the latter.

BackgroundEdit

In a live webchat with her fans the day of the album's release, P!nk revealed that "Beam Me Up" was written about a very close friend of hers who lost a child a year ago at a very young age, and that the song was the hardest song to write for the album. She added that the writing process for the song was extremely emotional, and that it would be a difficult song to sing on tour.[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 [...] it's very close to my heart."[2]

The title of the song is thought to be a reference to the popular phrase "Beam me up, Scotty," as heard on Star Trek.

Live performances Edit

"Beam Me Up" was not included in the regular setlist of The Truth About Love Tour; however, on July 17, 2013, P!nk performed the majority of the song for the first time in Melbourne. She told audiences that she was performing it for a couple in the audience that had written to her about "something that they'd been through that, I'm sure, a lot of people have been through."[3]

She performed the full song with Billy Mann on October 23, 2014 at her "The Power of Pink: An Acoustic Evening with P!nk & Friends" event to benefit breast cancer research.

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?
