Jupiter Crash

Album: Wild Mood Swings (1996)
  • She follows me down to the sound of the sea
    Slips to the sand and stares up at me
    "is this how it happens? is this how it feels?
    Is this how a star falls?
    Is this how a star falls?"

    The night turns as I try to explain
    Irresistible attraction and orbital plane
    "or maybe it's more like a moth to a flame?"
    She brushes my face with her smile
    "forget about stars for a while"
    As she melts

    Meanwhile millions of miles away in space
    The incoming comet brushes Jupiter's face
    And disappears away with barely a trace

    "was that it? was that the Jupiter show?
    Kinda wasn't quite what I'd hoped for, you know"
    Pulling away, she stands up slow
    And round her the night turns
    Round her the night turns

    Yeah, that was it
    That was the Jupiter crash
    Drawn too close and gone in a flash
    Just a few bruises in the region of the splash

    She left to the sound of the sea
    She just drifted away from me
    So much for gravity Writer/s: JASON TOOP COOPER, PERRY BAMONTE, ROBERT JAMES SMITH, ROGER O'DONNELL, SIMON GALLUP

  • Niqolas from London, EnglandWhen I first heard Jupiter Crash circa 1995 they had just played it live somewhere in Britain broadcasted on the radio, I was so overjoyed...It has loads of trademark sounds from the band.....
    Wild Mood Swings is a cool album...This is a nice song..Reminds me of Going Nowhere on The Cure....
  • Ali from Wine, CaIt is a great song. and im not exactly sure if the crash refers to the woman...
    in the song, theres a woman....and a crash. and a man (robert) whos with the woman watching it.
  • Miguel from Casa Grandes, MexicoThis is a wonderful song.I can imagine the setting,showing someone special something you think is great.
