Song Stuck In My Head This Week - 25th July '10 - Pink - Glitter In The Air

Springing onto the music scene in 2000 with the feisty 'There You Go', Pink has gone on to make some of the best pop music of the last decade. However, what can't be doubted is that she's also made some really great ballads too and 'Glitter In The Air' is, in my opinon, the greatest song she's ever recorded.

For a hopeless romantic like me it sums up how you'd like love to be. No big gestures, no over sentimental nonsense...just someone holding your cup of coffee calling you sugar (to paraphrase the lyrics). It's all about that feeling of loving someone and knowing they love you back.

Having been single for quite some time, I often find that romantic stuff can bring me down but this song just leaves me feeling hopeful that true love does exist out there and that maybe someday I'll find some for myself.

The song is simple, beautiful and I hope you all enjoy it!

(ps There were no copies of her amazing performance at the Grammy awards this year that I could embed but it's worth checking out -> however I did embed an audio + picture version for those of you who just want to hear the track)

Pink - Glitter In The Air

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
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?
