The Cure Jupiter Crash Lyrics

Last updated: 05/26/2012 11:00:00 AM

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
Irresistable 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?
It kinda wasn't quite what I'd hoped for you know... "
And 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
Yeah,So much for gravity...

Beautiful song! One of The Cure's best... | Reviewer: Danielle | 5/25/12

This is a stunning song. It's actually about a girl losing her virginity to the narrator of the song, then finding the hyped-up experience of sex disappointing, just like the celestial event they are both witnessing.

love the layering of sounds. | Reviewer: Commissioner. | 7/15/08

I really love this song, it begins with the sound of the sea, and a palming of a percussionist's taborine. The bass/guitar/6 string bass and keys start up in unision, at 0:56 Simon flows up the scale (sounds to me like a gibson thunderbird through ampeg tube)it gives me a uplifting smile cuz i play it so loud, and curious repeat of it.
Robert sings these words beuitifuly, thoughts of him, and thought and words of her. it makes me feel it mighta been the first time, you know. ghost echo's, nice touch.
