My Life Through P!nk Lyrics ~ F*cking Perfect

This is  one of those songs that the first time I heard it, I knew it was MY song. I’ve a lifetime full of bad decisions, beating myself down feeling like I couldn’t do anything right, others doing that for  me in case I wasn’t feeling crappy enough about myself, and I still manage to land on my feet and pull myself back up.  I was the complete misfit growing up, in school and out, but I’m pretty okay with who I am today.  I’m different, eccentric, and I like it! I am perfect to me, now, being ME,  and I will be fucking perfect to someone, someday.

Warning, the ‘F’ bomb  is dropped a LOT in the explicit version, so if that one offends you, this isn’t for you.  I love the video too, don’t worry it isn’t that racy just go with it.

FUCKING PERFECT – P!nk

Made a wrong turn once or twice
Dug my way out, blood and fire
Bad decisions, that’s alright
Welcome to my silly life

Mistreated, misplaced, misunderstood
Miss ‘No way, it’s all good’
It didn’t slow me down.
Mistaken, always second guessing
Underestimated, look I’m still around

Pretty, pretty please, don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than fucking perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel
Like you’re nothing, you’re fucking perfect to me

You’re so mean when you talk
About yourself. You were wrong.
Change the voices in your head
Make them like you instead.

So complicated,
Look happy, You’ll make it!
Filled with so much hatred
Such a tired game
It’s enough, I’ve done all I could think of
Chased down all my demons
I’ve seen you do the same
(ohh ohhhhhhh)

Pretty, pretty please, don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than fucking perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel
Like you’re nothing, you’re fucking perfect to me

The whole world’s scared, so I swallow the fear
The only thing I should be drinking is an ice cold beer
So cool in line and we try try try but we try too hard
And it’s a waste of my time.
Done looking for the critics, cause they’re everywhere
They don’t like my jeans, they don’t get my hair
Exchange ourselves and we do it all the time
Why do we do that, why do I do that (why do I do that)?

Pretty, pretty, pretty

Pretty, pretty please, don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than fucking perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel
Like you’re nothing than you’re fucking perfect to me
(you’re perfect, you’re perfect)
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel
Like you’re nothing, you’re fucking perfect to me

My Life Through P!NK Lyrics ~ Glitter In The Air

I think this song is just beautiful!  I’ve experienced this kind of  love that made me feel this way, and I want it again.  But it wasn’t with my ex, that was something different I cannot explain, not sure anymore it was even love.

I think it is entirely possible to have this sort of love I feel in this song, more than once, the kind that is felt in your soul.  I certainly hope so, as I’d hate to think it was a one time thing,  as I was touched so gently it did make me cry, not just through the finger tips in the physical, but mind to mind, soul to soul, heart to heart, where he touched inner me with such care it took my breath away. In many ways he was as stranger and I did invite him inside to know the me that is so rarely even glimpsed by the world, and with the right man the invitation will be extended again, after my trust builds up in him enough to risk the potential pain of it not lasting.   It is precious when two people can do that.

Thank you, Mr. Wonderful, for restoring my belief in fairy tales, you will forever be precious to me.

“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 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

My Life Through P!NK Lyrics ~ Sober

I love P!NK’s music, so many songs I relate to on her Greatest Hits So Far album.

I absolutely love this song.  Last year around Thanksgiving I finally hit the wall on self pity and drinking away my pain.  Far from having a drinking problem, I simply didn’t want to be sober.  I felt better when I was drinking, numb to my pain and protected from it.  But after an ugly encounter with a friend, when I had drank in excess and lost control, I realized the need to back away from hiding from my pain and just face  it all head on, FEEL it and grieve, mourn and then move forward.  It was so much better once I did that.

The song reminds me that I don’t want to go there again.  Drinking is fine, in moderation, and not to numb things.  I enjoy my wine, my beer and sometimes a few shots of good whiskey.  But  it isn’t the way to deal with my problems  or ignore the issues.  The video is rather racy but I like it.  I even interpret the girl/girl action not as sexual, but as a woman looking at herself, and wrestling with herself in order to LOVE herself again.  I’ve been there, it is hard to really look at ourselves sometimes.  But that is my take on it.

Here are the lyrics to P!NK’s song, Sober, and the video.  Enjoy!

~*~ ~*~ ~*~

I don’t wanna be the girl who laughs the loudest
Or the girl who never wants to be alone
I don’t wanna be that call at 4 o’clock in the morning
‘Cos I’m the only one you know in the world that won’t be home

Aahh the sun is blinding
I stayed up again
Oohh, I am finding
That’s not the way I want my story to end

I’m safe
Up high
Nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party’s over?
No pain
Inside
You’re like protection
But how do I feel this good sober?

I don’t wanna be the girl who has to fill the silence
The quiet scares me cause it screams the truth
Please don’t tell me that we had that conversation
I won’t remember, save your breath, ‘cos what’s the use?

Aahh, the night is calling?
And it whispers to me softly come and play
But I, I am falling
And If I let myself go I’m the only one to blame

I’m safe
Up high
Nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party’s over?
No pain
Inside
You’re like perfection
But how do I feel this good sober?

I’m coming down, coming down, coming down
Spinning ’round, spinning ’round, spinning ’round
Looking for myself – SOBER

I’m coming down, coming down, coming down
Spinning ’round, spinning ’round, spinning ’round
Looking for myself – SOBER
When it’s good, then it’s good, it’s so good till it goes bad
Till you’re trying to find the you that you once had
I have heard myself cry, never again
Broken down in agony just tryna find a fit

Ooo Oooo

I’m safe
Up high
Nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party’s over?
No pain
Inside
You’re like perfection
But how do I feel this good sober

OOooo OOoo

I’m safe
Up high
Nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party’s over?
No pain
Inside
You’re like perfection
How do I feel this good sober?

Will I ever feel this good sober?
Tell me, No no no no no pain
How do I feel this good sober?
