Jumping Off the Sun

This song is by Colosseum and appears on the album The Grass Is Greener (1970).

This song goes up and up, down and down and up and down again
These notes like colour balls, leaving smoke trails like an aeroplane
Shooting up, falling down like a rocket and then
Jumping off the sun
Jumping off the sun

This song grows bunches of summer flowers at the smell of rain
Dogs barking, smoke rising, cigarettes in bed with you again
These notes make a necklace that sings like the moon
Jumping off the sun
Jumping off the sun

This song is dancing like sunlight on the River Thames at Kew
Times for the sound of it, time to Charing Cross and Waterloo
Well I know that sounds funny, one might as well go
Jumping off the sun
Jumping off the sun

This song goes up and up, down and down and up and down again
Lemonade kisses I string together like a daisy chain
But these words have no meaning unless they are sung
Jumping off the sun
Jumping off the sun

Mike Taylor / AllMusic i Dave Tomlin

Liner notes:

"Written by Mike Taylor, one of Britain's most gifted composers, this was given to me a year or so before his premature death. I have tried to do it with many different groups, but this version has been worth waiting for." – Jon Hiseman
