Musical Monday: Glitter in the Air by P!nk

I’ve had several tunes running through my head and couldn’t decide which one to highlight for this belated post so I reviewed my iTunes in search of one. It turns out the song with the most plays is Glitter in the Air by P!nk, aka Alecia Beth Moore.

She began writing songs when she was a teen as an outlet for her emotions. Sound familiar, writers? She writes/co-writes almost all of her own lyrics.  Plus, she doesn’t conform to society’s ideal of beauty. She’s not stick thin with pumped up lips and other body parts. Some say she’s not very feminine with her short hair and muscular build but she’s true to herself and that’s what makes her beautiful in my opinion.

If you didn’t see her performance of Glitter in the Air at the Grammys a few years ago then you must watch the following video. It is still one of the most mesmerizing performances by a musical artist I’ve ever seen.

“Glitter In The Air”

Have you ever fed a lover with just your hands?
Closed your eyes and trust it, just trust it?
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 flames
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
