Drops of Jupiter




"The best thing we can do by loss of love is find ourselves through it." - Pat Monahan

Lyrics:

Now that she's back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there's time to change, hey
Since the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey

But tell me, did you sail across the sun
Did you make it to the Milky Way
To see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated

Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me
While you were looking for yourself out there

Now that she's back from that soul vacation
Tracing her way through the constellation, hey, hey
She checks out Mozart while she does Tae-Bo
Reminds me that there's room to grow, hey, hey

Now that she's back in the atmosphere
I'm afraid that she might think of me as
Plain ol' Jane told a story about a man
Who was too afraid to fly so he never did land

But tell me, did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance
To dance along the light of day
And head back to the Milky Way

And tell me, did Venus blow your mind
Was it everything you wanted to find
And did you miss me
While you were looking for yourself out there

Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken
Your best friend always sticking up for you
Even when I know you're wrong

Can you imagine no first dance, freeze-dried romance
Five-hour phone conversation
The best soy latte that you ever had, and me

But tell me, did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance
To dance along the light of day
And head back toward the Milky Way

But tell me, did you sail across the sun
Did you make it to the Milky Way
To see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated

And tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me
While you were looking for yourself

Ad lib

And did you finally get the chance
To dance along the light of day
And did you fall for a shooting star
Fall for a shooting star
And now you're lonely looking for yourself out there
