Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Pink using a metaphor of a messy attic above her home for a mixed-up mind with skeletons in her closet.

    My attic is full of pages, full of crazy
    Cluttered spaces that you could not cross
    My attic is full of bones and full of hopeless
    Young emotions that just won't grow up


    The singer is too guarded from all her falls to let someone in.
  • "My Attic" was written by Julia Michaels, who previously worked with Pink on the Beautiful Trauma track "Barbies."
  • Bolstered by the hit lead single, "Walk Me Home," Hurts 2B Human debuted at #1 in the US and UK. It was her third album to reach the summit on both charts.
