"Walk of Shame" is the tenth track from P!nk's sixth studio album, The Truth About Love. It is the shortest song on the album, as it lasts exactly two minutes and forty-two seconds. It was written by P!nk and Greg Kurstin and produced by Kurstin. In an interview with Gaydar Radio, P!nk said that "Walk of Shame" was one of her favorite tracks from the album, although she went on to say that it would never be a video despite wanting to see a video for it; therefore, this would imply that she had no plans to release it as a single either. [1] Despite this, P!nk ended up releasing the song as a single in Australia in order to promote her Truth About Love Tour DVD, The Truth About Love Tour: Live from Melbourne. "Walk of Shame" was released on September 25, 2013. [2]

BackgroundEdit

"Walk of Shame" was written by P!nk and Greg Kurstin. She told Spotify that it was inspired by her husband, Carey, calling her and telling her about all of the walks of shame that he has seen in Vegas, where his business is; P!nk said there was "nothing really that deep" about the song. [3]

Live performancesEdit

P!nk added it to the setlist of her The Truth About Love Tour. It was the first song from The Truth About Love in the setlist, as it was preceded by "Raise Your Glass" (from Greatest Hits... So Far!!!).

Music videoEdit

Despite P!nk previously stating there would not be a music video for the song (and therefore no single release either), she changed her mind and released the song as the album's fifth single in order to promote her upcoming tour DVD. The song's music video was released exclusively to P!nk's Australian Vevo channel. The video features the live version of the song and features clips from the tour film, which disappointed many fans, who thought she could have been more creative and done more with the video to relate to the song.

LyricsEdit

One step, two steps,
Counting tiles on the floor
Three steps, four steps,
Guess this means that I'm a whore
Uh-oh,
Hell no,
How long 'til I reach the door?
Fuck me,
My feet are sore

I'm wearing last night's dress and I look like a hot ass mess
Although my hair looks good 'cause I haven't slept yet!

Make the elevator come a little faster
I'm pushing all the buttons, but nothing's happening
Please God don't let anybody see me
Please God I'll do anything you ask of me
I promise, no more walks of shame

So walk this way (we're walking, we're walking)
Walk this way (we're walking, we're walking)

Last night's bubblegum,
No more bubbles, no more yum
Where'd I get the wristband,
Tell me there's no tramp stamp
One two three shoot,
No I know that shit ain't cute
But damn the man it sure is fun,
To party 'til the sun wakes up

Okay now raise two hands if you've ever been guilty
And clap clap clap clap clap it out if you've walked with me

Make the elevator come a little faster
I'm pushing all the buttons, but nothing's happening
Please God don't let anybody see me
Please God I'll do anything you ask of me
I promise, no more walks of shame

So walk this way (we're walking, we're walking)
Walk this way (we're walking, we're walking)

I shouldn't have let 'em take my keys, take my keys
They left me here
With too much beer.
My friends, they hung me out to dry.
It's not my fault, and that's why
I'm doin' the walk of shame

Make the elevator come a little faster
I'm pushing all the buttons, but nothing's happening
Please God don't let anybody see me
Please God I'll do anything you ask of me
I promise, no more walks of shame

So walk this way (we're walking, we're walking)
Walk this way (we're walking, we're walking)
So walk this way (we're walking, we're walking)
Walk this way (we're walking, we're walking)
