Song Meaning
Verse 1
Standing there alone, the ship is waiting
All systems are go, are you sure?
Control is not convinced
But the computer has the evidence
No need to abort
Verse 2
The countdown starts, watching in a trance
The crew is certain
Verse 3
Nothing left to chance, all is working
Trying to relax, up in the capsule
"Send me up a drink", jokes Major Tom
The count goes on
Verse 4
4, 3, 2, 1
Earth below us, drifting falling
Floating weightless, calling calling home
Verse 5
Second stage is cut, we're now in orbit
Stabilizers up, running perfect
Starting to collect, requested data
What will it effect, when all is done
Thinks Major Tom
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
4, 3, 2, 1
Earth below us, drifting, falling
Floating, weightless, calling, calling, home
Verse 8
Across the stratosphere
A final message, "Give my wife my love"
Then nothing more
Verse 9
Far beneath the ship, the world is mourning
They don't realize, he's alive
No one understands but Major Tom sees
Now the life commands, this is my home
I'm coming home
Verse 10
Earth below us, drifting, falling
Floating, weightless, coming home
Earth below us, drifting, falling
Floating, weightless, coming home
Verse 11
Earth below us, drifting, falling
Floating, weightless, coming, coming home
Home
