It caught my eye
So I brushed my arm;
Just a speck of silver light
Trapped on the peak
Of my fingertip.
Just a speck of silver light,
Just a more to know you by.

I’ve got glitter in my wounds
Since I was glitterbombed by you.

When I walk back from your house
I leave silver in my steá¹—s.
When I talk and your words fall out
They’ve got silver on the edge,
Hang shining in the air.

I’ve got glitter in my wounds
Since I was glitterbombed by you
But I don’t mind,
What once was yours alone,
Now it’s mine.

I’ve got glitter in my wounds
Since I was glitterbombed by you
Now I sparkle when I move
Cause I was glitterbombed by you

    General CommentThis is an adorable song...so innocent. And Church has such a special voice...just perfect. Who hasn't been "glitterbombed," having that feeling of elation after starting a new relationship with someone very special. I haven't been "glitterbombed" in decades, but one never forgets. I liken it to looking out the window as a child on Christmas Eve as you await the arrival of Santa Claus, all the while the soft, constant snow is falling and the windows begin to fog. You take your arm and hurridly try to wipe away the condensation. It's a special type of high...of anticipation...of anxiety (but good anixety)...you feel alive as the little hairs on your arm stand at attention. "Glitterbombed" is that high of new love...the anticipation of a long-term love relationship, the kind when you begin to complete each other's sentences (not on purpose and hopefully not often:) and you'd rather take a punch than allow anyone else to harm the person you desire heart, soul, body, and mind. Ah, we all should be "glitterbombed" at least once in our livetimes. I've been glitterbombed twice (long ago) and both relationships were extremely rewarding, regardless of their eventual ends.
