Second stage is cut We`re now in orbit Stabilizers up Running perfect Starting to collect Requested data What can it affect When all is done Thinks Major Tom Back at ground control There is a problem Go to rockets full Not responding Hello, Major Tom Are you receiving Turn the thrusters on We`re standing by There`s no reply (CHORUS) Across the stratusphere A final message Give my wife my love Then nothing more Far beneath the ship The world is mourning They don`t realize he`s alive No one understands But Major Tom sees Now the light commands This is my home I`m coming home Earth below us Drifting, falling Floating weightless Coming home Earth below us Drifting, falling Floating weightless Coming home Earth below us Drifting, falling Floating weightless, coming Coming home, home, home....
