Heads or Tails ~ train


Chubsie the Dwarf Hunter of the Malfurion Realm hosts Heads or Tails...check her out at Skittles Place.







Train ~ Drops of Jupiter

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, hey
Since the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey

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 is too afraid to fly
so he never did land

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

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
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…

This is the second video I've seen today by Train, and I've never heard of them before. I must be living under a rock or something!
Happy Tuesday!

Bond: no way YOU of all people don't know this song. (and yeah yesterdays should be listened to...)

Travis said...

Not sure whether I liked that or not. It had an awful lot of words in it, didn't it?

LOL...now I sound like the emperor criticizing Mozart for having too many notes in his music.

Mel said...

Lots of lyrics but good use of words.

And I've now been educated about Train.......I'm feeling smarter already! ;-)

Bond said...

See - even I can be eduKATEd!

Skittles said...

Was this their first hit? I usually listen to Country music, but I have always liked this song. Great video, too. The lead singer isn't hard on the eyes either. :)

Turnbaby said...

I love this song--most of their stuff actually.

I am shocked--shocked i say that Bondbaby didn't know it;-)

Andrée said...

Mimi Lenox said...

I've always loved this song.

Marilyn said...

I really like this song too... I've been reading up on mythology for some reason and the lyrics are more interesting.
