Pink: Glitter in the Air Meaning
Glitter in the Air Lyrics
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...

i think it means putting your walls downs and not caring and just loving this person and living no matter what happens.

To me, this song expresses the true value of life and letting go.
"It's only half past the point of no return...", meaning that it's just the beginning of the decisions we'll make, but don't judge and choose not to think twice about your gut feeling because we have instincts that usually will lead us in the right direction.
"The tip of the iceberg, the sun before the burn...", means there's more under the surface than what we see, so we shouldn't judge because we could be mistaken. Like a sunburn we get when we aren't careful, misjudgment could be a cause of mistake.
When P!nk sings of letting a stranger come inside, she speaks of kindness and hospitality. She's saying that we should be kind to those we meet; we don't know what they go through, so we could change their day just by giving them a smile and being kind.

I don't know why but I've always seen this song as a sadness about how we take for granted the little things in the grand scheme. Like the "thunder before the lightning". So many of us are so caught up in ourselves and the hustle and bustle of life that when we get thunder and lightning we're so focused on how it ruined our day or how many seconds it is between the thunder and lightning that we don't take the time to appreciate the roll of the thunder. And when she's sitting in the garden, idk why but I see it as an older person who, maybe senility has set in. They're clutching HER coffee, calling her sugar. Now because they've lost so much of their mind, they can never appreciate those things because they took for granted when they could have.

I thought she wrote it when her a corey we contemplating divorce, and looking back and looking forward, wishing things were different. She refers to the "hourglass on the table" (counseling perhaps)

She is mainly referring to the experience of the "first time" and the need for trust from that person. She has a lot of metapors indicating this "the tip of the iceberg" that heatbeating feeling you get before you try something reckless you'll probably never forget. Like in " its only half past the point of no retrurn", explains how stupid the person must feel now from "DOIN IT" and how caught up in the moment the person was in. But in the last stanza it seems she looked upon it as a life lesson that she'll dosn't regret.

I think this song is about throwing passion to the wind and living life to the fullest.

It's mainly about life. The song is just figurative language like Dog Days. -KatyPerryLover
