"Try" was written by Ben West and busbee, while production was handled by Greg Kurstin, who also produced her previous single, "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)". It is a pop rock ballad, modelled on 80's FM Rock, built around two-volume arrangement, whereby the verses are quiet and the chorus is loud, according to Idolator's Carl Willot.
Lyrically, it is an ode to taking risks with love, no matter the consequences. It also talks about hanging onto your dreams and aspirations even if it means taking risks. "Where there is desire there is gonna be a flame," sings Pink on the chorus. "Where there is a flame someone's bound to get burned. But just because it burns doesn't mean you're gonna die. You gotta get up and try.
