Song Lyric Sunday – Glitter in the Air by Pink

I wouldn’t say I’m a huge fan of Pink, but what I have heard of hers, I usually like. This song, however, has me in tears every single time. There are times that lyrics are the essence of beauty and they touch you in a way that is indescribable. This is one of those songs for me.

I am also linking to the performance she did of the song at the Grammy’s. I think it is one of the most brave and amazing performances I’ve seen. I was in tears when I watched it, and  the crowd’s reaction – fellow artists – is pretty much all you need to see to know how truly special it was. Just the fact that she sang upside down while hanging suspended in the air is truly magical.

I hope you enjoy today’s pick for Song Lyric Sunday. Feel free to read the “rules” below and join in with one of your own.

Glitter in the Air by Pink
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Have you ever fed a lover with just your hands?
Closed your eyes and trusted, just trusted?
Have you ever thrown a fistful of glitter in the air?
Have you ever looked fear in the face and said, “I just don’t care.”?

It’s only half past the point of no return
The tip of the iceberg, the sun before the burn
The thunder before the lightning and the breath before the phrase
“Have you ever felt this way?”

Have you ever hated yourself for staring at the phone?
Your whole life waiting on the ring to prove you’re not alone
Have you ever been touched so gently you had to cry?
Have you ever invited a stranger to come inside?

It’s only half past the point of oblivion
The hourglass on the table, the walk before the run
The breath before the kiss, and the fear before the phrase
“Have you ever felt this way?”

La la la la la la la la

There you are,
Sitting in the garden,
Clutching my coffee,
Calling me sugar
You called me sugar

Have you ever wished for an endless night?
Lassoed the moon and the stars and pulled that rope tight?
Have you ever held your breath and asked yourself will it ever get better than tonight?
Tonight

  3. I love Pink! 🙂 But I haven’t heard of this one… will have to check it out. Thanks for the share. And yes, I too had to find another video, because this one doesn’t seem to be enabled for my country (weird!)

  5. I went with Running on Empty, and embedded the YouTube Rock and Roll Hall of Fame video of the song.
    Great idea to share song lyrics. I hear lyrics as poetry, and often these words continue to speak to me, even when/if the music is no longer as enjoyable to my aging ear! 😉
