lyrics

I'm low as a crater and filled with dust
I feel like a traitor to the thought of us
I hardly remember the heat of your hand
memory fails me and crumbles like sand

oh, hey ah, hey ah
now my heart grows fonder
through all these long long nights alone
oh, hey ah, hey ah
now my faith grows stronger
soon I'll see your face
I'm picking up the pace
I am crossing land and sea and space
I am coming home

your voice sounds so distant on the line
we chase every minute with a dollar sign
all that I want is to comfort you
my voice is my body… just without the view

and I think it's gonna be a long, long time
'til touchdown brings me 'round again to find
I'm not the man they think I am at home
oh, no no no
I'm a rocket man
rocket man
burnin' out his fuse up here alone
and I think it's gonna be a long, long time
I'm not the man they think I am at home

Mars ain't the kind of place
to raise your kids
in fact, it's cold as hell
and there's no one there to raise them
if you did

and all this science
I don't understand
it's just my job
five days a week
a rocket man
rocket man

and I think it's gonna be a long, long, time
'til touchdown brings me 'round again to find
I'm not the man they think I am at home
oh, no no no
I'm a rocket man
rocket man
burnin' out his fuse up here alone


and I think it's gonna be a long, long, time
