    Northern Lights
    Cast a glow through the window late last night
    I went to follow through the sycamore
    When I found myself in a place
    I'd never been before
    There was a unicorn and a dragon queen
    Beneath the burgundy sky
    I saw an old soldier singin' a love song
    He had the distance in his eye

    [Chorus]
    Livin' in another world
    Livin' in another time
    Like a comet I was hurled
    Oh, livin' in another world

    Jupiter Hollow
    So far, so near
    Like a time machine take you out to a different year
    Phoebus Apollo played on his lyre
    While we danced to the music of the sphere
    And as the moon went down and the sun came up
    With the mercury risin' too
    'Twas then the prophet said the secret of the dead
    I'll whisper it to you

    [Chorus]

    Jupiter Hollow
    In the midnight sun
    Well, no man of dreams was ever more outdone
    Where the swallows circle over head
    And muses gather by the river of the tears we shed
    Just like a pioneer in the new frontier
    I don't know where to begin
    Because nobody cares when a man goes mad
    And tries to free the ghost within

    [Chorus]
