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 the flame,'
She brushes my face with her smile
'Forget about stars for a while'

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'
Pulling away she stands up slow
Around her the night turns
Around 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

One of the better songs on the album that was the beginning of the end for them.

I actually blew by this album - despite being a huge Cure fan - GREAT tune!  I'll have to go back and check it out.  Thanks RP for keeping me connected to my own library! Keep The Cure comin'!

 
Actually a nice album with a number of great songs.  The title Wild mood swings was enough to get my attention.
Listen to Nick Cave's Higgs Boson Blues, makes a nice "space" double :)

That's so weird, was just thinking exactly the same thing....

It's awesome to hear this song on Radio Paradise. Not what I expected and that's a good thing ;-)
Excellent addition, Bill!

Best song on an underrated album from one of the best bands ever.
