Have You Ever Thrown a Fist Full of Glitter in the Air?

One of my favorite songs EVER is “Glitter in the Air” by Pink. When she belts out lyrics like these, I am reminded of EXACTLY how I want to live my life. I am reminded that the only thing you take with you when you take your last gasp of air is your experience. This may be my mid-life crisis speaking, but I need to throw more glitter in the air…

“Glitter In The Air”

Have you ever fed a lover with just your hands? (YES)
Closed your eyes and trusted, just trusted? (YES!)
Have you ever thrown a fist full of glitter in the air? (Theoretically, YES – but I should do it literally too, no?)
Have you ever looked fear in the face and said, “I just don’t care”? (Many times, WILL do it again next week… I’m all in, and ready to bring it)

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? (Yes, but I need more)
Have you ever hated yourself for staring at the phone? (More than I care to admit)
You’re whole life waiting on the ring to prove you’re not alone (Never wanted a ring, just his word)
Have you ever been touched so gently you had to cry? (The experience transformed me)
Have you ever invited a stranger to come inside? (Yes…)

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? (Yes, I crave the building of emotions — that feeling you have the moment before you accomplish something great)
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 (Everybody wants a moment like this)
Have you ever wished for an endless night? (Do you ever stop wishing for nights like this?)
Lassoed the moon and the stars and pulled that rope tight? (Yes)
Have you ever held your breath and asked yourself will it ever get better than tonight? (I remember like it was yesterday)
Tonight (Always)
