Blackfield - Jupiter Lyrics




Once we were young, we had no plans
What simplicity of love
We used to get it, to get it all
We weren't scared to fail and fall

Now all I can do is to stand
And watch those new boys in the game
How they're laughing and having fun
Making rules under the sun

I won't win her pretty eyes tonight
It's been so long since I played it right
I'll get to Jupiter and halfway back
Before she'll even notice I'm around

They used to call me the city queen
But now God's playing his jokes on me
I'm all alone, far from the city
I've got no room, no time for dreams

I won't win her pretty eyes tonight
It's been so long since I played it right
I'll get to Jupiter and halfway back
Before she'll even notice I'm around

Once we were young, we had no plans
What simplicity of love
We used to get it, to get it all
We had no time to fail and fall

I won't win her pretty eyes tonight
It's been so long since I played it right
I'll get to Jupiter and halfway back
Before she'll even notice I'm around

Once we were young, we had no plans
What simplicity of love
We used to get it, to get it all
We weren't scared to fail and fall

  39. Stelyn mArC

    Beautiful song..
    I always loved Blackfield :)

  40. May Cohen

    Important to mention that Blackfield was created by Aviv Geffen, my mentor from The voice - Israel. He is an amazing person who is INSANELY talented...credits to him  

    sthom3521

    Yes, it should be clear that Aviv wrote this, as he does most all of Blackfield's stuff. Aviv and Steven make a great team.

    That Poo Head

    I am glad I got to meet him last year, and get stuff signed as well. If you want me to like to to a picture of the stuff and tell you the story, I can.

  41. Steve Laszcz

    That is one gorgeous song with one of the most amazing videos I have ever seen.

  42. New Moose

    Wow, definitely one of the coolest music videos I've ever seen! Really digging Steven Wilson's vocals on this one and Aviv's lyrics are beautiful

  43. RazerWolf

    Just saw this performed live last night. I shed a tear or two.

  44. Aviv

    Just saying wow.

  45. Andrea SaccoBaldacchinoCascun

    This is so magical. :)

  46. Marco Esp

    My God this is beautiful

  47. m m v ortiz

    ART + ART =STEVEN WILSON

  48. Sarah Jane

    im in tears,,im a painter and i always paint on steven wilsons music and 4 months ago i was lisetning to fadeaway by porcupine tree and then a pic came to my head the same pic on 2:00 and now im watching this ! the same idea in my head ...

    Jay Schankman

    just listening to the beauty of those vocals on the third chorus brings me to tears.

  49. Tugce Yigiter

    I can notice Steven even he is in Jupiter :')

  50. Tristan Quezada Diaz

    Este es un super rolon, alucinante y muy relajante. Beautiful song!

  51. Meble Bordo

    Rewelacyjny clip. Czyż ludzie nie są cudowni? Czy ich wyobraźnia nie zna granic? 

  52. pim telman

    Crazy good video, this sand artist is amazing!

  53. kemosabe100

    LEVEL 42 - Take a look

  54. SC2pwner

    You try to tell me that, the lyrics, or in other words, WHAT HE SINGS ABOUT, is not a part of the song? Good luck in your life

  55. Chris W

    Love this

  56. hailMichaelSwaim

    I think he was probably referring to Stupid Dream/Lightbulb Sun era PT. Granted, there's still more variation in those as a whole, moving beyond the more straightforward formula than Blackfield generally does. Not to rip on Blackfield at all, I'm most certainly a fan of most of their stuff. Just, there are definitely differences (but certainly similarities as well to SD/LS)

  57. Elliot Bowles

    Good for you.

  58. ukhio

    aww this lyrics hurts me :(

  59. S V

    ART + ART

  60. Raul Rafael

    i fell in a unique love with the music, also, the video is amazing ;D

  61. simsimBox

    And what a peaceful Rock pop ;)

  62. שֵׁם פְּרָטִי

    Wow! love that video!

  63. Peter Black

    Why all SW music should be the same in every records?
    Blackfield is a different concept, another little facet from Steven Wilson's music career. If you don't like it just don't listen.

  64. Bernardo Mairena

    dude :o Blackfield was my favourite side project of Wilson, I found it so human. But it's your taste in musak and i respect you :/ but blackfield is awesome!

  65. KarimMalat

    1) What's so bad about being just a "Rock Pop band"?
    2) People think they are "a avantgarde band". Really? Who? How many? :)

  66. Wolfram Hart

    It's very subjective but I don't like Aviv Geffen. Blackfield is just a Rock Pop band. People think they are "a avantgarde band" but clearly they are not.

  67. harkerlana

    You're not alone.
    Can't listen to two tracks on end but good on him for having so many guises and interests.
    Seeing the great man in 5 days time. :)

  68. tarkineWild

    May I ask why ?

  69. Wolfram Hart

    I disagree, because old-school PT is so experimental and psychedelic. The music of Blackfield is just Rock Pop.

  70. Wolfram Hart

    I'm the unique Steven Wilson's fan who doesn't like Blackfield.

  71. IntermediateJesus

    Old school PT! That would be stuff before The Stupid Dream album for me. Also the Incident was quite proggy. When you listen to early PT Steven Wilson's solo project makes way more sense.

  72. Sharon Nissim

    I'm so happy these guys made another album.
    Proud to be an Israeli, Steven's voice is absolutly beautiful, they're both very talnted and creative.
    So yeah, I'm excited! :)

  73. yoonah

    Reminds me of Garbage's When I Grow Up

  74. Grv360

    aviv is really good.

  75. nakedspaniard

    2:02 best

  76. GrandpaBeaver

    what the hell is that huuuuge hand at the end ?! oO

  77. spooky hailey

    Blackfield is not included only Steven Wilson. Aviv Geffen wrote the most of the songs of this band.

  78. James Plays

    This was all Aviv's doing. Steven only did the vocals, Aviv wrote the whole thing.

  79. Gia J

    Beautiful song, sounds so much like old PT.

  80. tarkineWild

    Here in Oz next month

  81. Danny M

    He does but he won't. In addition to be being done with heavy riffs(metal) he's also going to steer clear of jazz music because one of the PT members doesn't like jazz. Wilson never specified which member. It's uncertain exactly what direction the band will go, if they reunite.

  82. vinyljeopardy

    Just beautiful.

  83. Avalon Phoenix

    This song is very beautiful! Steven Wilson is a genius!

  84. fuzzylogiceire

    Steven didn't write it, it sounds too happy to be a SW song.

  85. Magnus Ericsmoen

    That's cool!

  86. amin kashani

    actualy some PT stuff need 10+ listens but i feel you bro!

  87. Hitesh Pachpor

    Holy Mother of God this video sends shivers down the spine.

  88. SpiralingInfinities

    In his solo albums yes, but there is an interview with Richard barbieri where he states that Steven Wilson wanted to go with more keyboards. Wilson also said that one of the musician in PT (most likely Barbieri) hates Jazz so he wouldn't and couldn't do it on PT. Which is the reason for his solo bad.

  89. Jordan Sparkes

    I finally found this song! I heard it somewhere, and it was stuck in my head. I didn't know what it was called so I had to hunt it down, I only remembered some of the lyrics. Now to press repeat over and over again.

  90. Patrick Laikan Buchs

    nice Video, nice Song, nice Music, werry nice :))

  91. L.R. Perez

    Keyboard heavy? He said he wants more jazz influence.

  92. SpiralingInfinities

    Prepare to be disappointed, Steven Wilson has already said he's done with Heavy riffs. Apparently when he gets back with PT, if he does, he wants to cut on the guitars and go in a more ''keyboard heavy'' direction

  93. SpiralingInfinities

    You do know he's just a guest on this album?

  94. KirillDreamer

    great melody

  95. Aditya Sharma

    beautiful ... lovin it

  96. makiney13

    No mames.... que hermosura!!!!!!!!

  97. Susan Branson Smith

    Steven Wilson, can you do no wrong? I adore you.
