Are We All We Are
by Pink

Album: The Truth About Love (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Pink opens her sixth studio album The Truth About Love with this self-empowerment anthem, which she penned with frequent collaborator Butch Walker, John Hill (who co-wrote Shakira's hit "She Wolf") and Lana Del Rey producer Emile Haynie. "We are the people that you'll never get the best of," she sings. "Not forget the rest of. Just sing it loud until the kids will sing it right back." The song's 'stand up for yourselves' message compares with Pink's 2010 hit "Raise Your Glass," which celebrates those who are "wrong in all the right ways."
