Glitter and some...

I was at a gorgeous dance performance on Sunday night..My friend Nanci's daughter Gia has grown up to be a superstar(I had no doubts at all)..It was a very transforming experience for me in many ways..It took me down memory lane of my childhood and school,performances and my parents,extra-curricular activities and some lessons..
One of the songs that were used for the choreography had these beautiful lyrics and I just had to share it with all of you..
It is quite a famous song I hear..Performed by PINK.
So,here goes..

"Have you ever fed a lover with just your hands?
Closed your eyes and trusted, just trusted?
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 the lightning
The breath before the phrase
Have you ever felt this way?

Have you ever hated yourself for staring at the phone?
You're 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 "

and now my addition..
"Have you ever felt distance in your love ?
Have you ever felt the need for a peace dove ?

Don't you know that magic that is there will always be waiting ?
It is the sound of the glow worms in the moonlight,mating.

Did you trust in the Universe to show you what is true ?
Did you know that everything that you feel is part of a never ending brew ?

As you have always known,true love stories never have endings..
What seems like the end is just another set of beginnings..

Knowing the above,can you see the glow in your eye ??
It looks much better than tears flowing by..."

I hope you go to sleep every night.knowing that there is someone,somewhere who misses you..
