  • You went up, so bright Tom
    Thought my love was rocketing you along
    When you didn't come back, and didn't come back
    My nova heart collapsed
    To a black, black hole

    Floating on sine waves in inner space
    Awaiting a signal of grace
    From ground control, to lost control,
    Ballet to battle, halo to hole

    You were so far gone
    Right was wrong, up was down.
    By going still further on,
    You hoped to come around.
    It was light years long, dear husband Tom.
    At last back you've come...
    Yet still, you're gone.

    Floating on sine waves in inner space
    Awaiting a signal of grace
    From ground control, to lost control,
    Ballet to battle, halo to hole

    I watched the skies, for all that time,
    And now your asteroid eyes
    Say you were never mine.
    Never mine, never mine,
    Never, never mine...

    Floating on sine waves in inner space
    Awaiting a signal of grace
    From ground control, to lost control,
    Ballet to battle, halo to hole

    You didn't burn up, my Major Tom.
    You just burnt out.
    You just burnt out. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
