Pink @ the Grammys 2010 - a look back

Just recently Pink's song, "Glitter In The Air" hit the radio. Why it took so long, I haven't a clue, but I'm glad it did. I don't listen to the Top40 cookie cutter radio stations, no way... I heard it on Mix 101.5 in Raleigh, it's radio name matching very true to what they play, a mix. In y humble opinion, it's the best station in Raleigh. Anywho... I'm getting off topic.

After hearing this beautiful song on the radio recently it reminded me of the wonderful, awe-inspiring performance Pink gave at this year's Grammys. Do you remember? I know I do - it was the moment of the night and it resonated with me for many days to follow. It wasn't a typical performance and I LOVED that! I've always loved Pink, always. And after this I loved her more. I had "Glitter in the Air" on my iPod the day her album 'Funhouse' came out.

If you didn't watch the Grammys this past February, or didn't watch it online, and you have no idea what performance I'm talking about it, I've added it just for you. I watched it 3x just tonight! Mesmerizing every time.

The lyrics to the song are just as beautiful as her performance. I've added them below:

Have you ever fed a lover with just your hands?
Close your eyes and trust it, just trust it
Have you ever thrown a fist full 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 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 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
