Jupiter (song)

I wished upon the first star I saw glinting in the sky.
I tried to make it understand the feelings trapped inside.
I poured out all my heart and soul before I realized:
It was Jupiter. Oh, it was Jupiter.

Will it hold my secrets in its storms?
Keep them close like spinning moons?
Or let them loose like shooting stars,
Burning bright for all to see?

Keep them safe, keep them safe, keep them safe for me,
And hold them oh so lovingly,
Like fragile flowers and tender leaves in this cold, hard world.
Keep them safe, keep them safe, keep them safe for me,
They can’t be heard, they can’t be seen,
These words aren’t meant to be released in this cold, hard world.

I wanted to reclaim the words I’d whispered to the night.
I begged for them with hollow pleas, but that little shining light,
It kept them in its rigid grasp, it held them close and tight,
‘Cause it was Jupiter. Oh, it was Jupiter.

Will it hold my secrets in its storms?
Keep them close like spinning moons?
Or let them loose like shooting stars,
Burning bright for all to see?

Give them back, give them back, give them back to me,
If you won’t hold them lovingly,
I thought that this would set me free, but it’s a two-faced world.
Give them back, give them back, give them back to me.
They aren’t yours to hold, not yours to speak,
I’ve got no room for dishonesty in this two-faced world.

Next time I find myself beneath that cold and starry dome
I’ll close my mouth and clutch my words, I’ll never let them go.
‘Cause who can tell what lies behind that pretty burning glow?
It might be Jupiter. Oh, it might be Jupiter.
