This week’s theme of Song Lyric Sunday was ‘Long/Short/Small/Tall’, and it was surprisingly difficult to find a fitting song. In the end, I chose this song by P!nk since I like the overall message of the lyrics, and I love both the colour and artist Pink.

‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’ is about the time when you know a relationship is over, but you’re still staying together while you should both know you should split up. I found the lyrics very recognisable. Like many people, I’ve been in such a situation. It’s not easy. But like the lyrics say, when you realise life is short, it’s better to bite the bullet and end things.

Blow Me (One Last Kiss) – P!nk

White knuckles
And sweaty palms from hanging on too tight
Clenched shut jaw
I’ve got another headache again tonight

Eyes on fire, eyes on fire
And they burn from all the tears
I’ve been crying, I’ve been crying
I’ve been dying over you

Tie a knot in the rope
Trying to hold, trying to hold
But there’s nothing to grab
So I let go

I think I’ve finally had enough
I think I maybe think too much
I think this might be it for us
Blow me one last kiss

You think I’m just too serious
I think you’re full of shit
My head is spinning, so
Blow me one last kiss

Just when it can’t get worse
I’ve had a shit day
You’ve had a shit day
We’ve had a shit day

I think that life’s too short for this
Want back my ignorance and bliss
I think I’ve had enough of this
Blow me one last kiss

I won’t miss all of the fighting
That we always did
Take it in
I mean what I say when I say “there is nothing left”

No more sick whiskey dick
No more battles from me
You’ll be calling a trick
‘Cause you no longer sleep

I’ll dress nice, I’ll look good
I’ll go dancing alone
I will laugh, I’ll get drunk
I’ll take somebody home

I think I’ve finally had enough
I think I maybe think too much
I think this might be it for us
Blow me one last kiss

You think I’m just too serious
I think you’re full of shit
My head is spinning, so
Blow me one last kiss

Just when it can’t get worse
I’ve had a shit day
You’ve had a shit day
We’ve had a shit day

I think that life’s too short for this
Want back my ignorance and bliss
I think I’ve had enough of this
Blow me one last kiss

Blow me one last kiss
Blow me one last kiss

I will do what I please
Anything that I want
I will breathe, I will breathe
I won’t worry at all

You will pay for your sins
You’ll be sorry, my dear
All the lies, all the whys
Will all be crystal clear

I think I’ve finally had enough
I think I maybe think too much
I think this might be it for us
Blow me one last kiss

You think I’m just too serious
I think you’re full of shit
My head is spinning, so
Blow me one last kiss

Just when it can’t get worse
I’ve had a shit day
You’ve had a shit day
We’ve had a shit day

I think that life’s too short for this
Want back my ignorance and bliss
I think I’ve had enough of this
Blow me one last kiss

Blow me one last kiss
Blow me one last kiss

Just when it can’t get worse
I’ve had a shit day
You’ve had a shit day
We’ve had a shit day

I think that life’s too short for this
Want back my ignorance and bliss
I think I’ve had enough of this
Blow me one last kiss

    1. Thank you, I loved Pink’s music ever since her first album came out, and there aren’t many pop artists that I like.

      I’m looking forward to reading your post about ‘The One That Got Away.’ ☺️

    1. Oh, I love the name Alecia 😄
      I noticed it when I copied the writer of the song. I had heard it before, but forgotten about it. What a coincidence you chose this name for your daughter too 😊
