Peter Schilling ‎– Major Tom

Official music video 'Major Tom' (eng­lish ver­sion) per­formed by 'Peter Schilling' taken from the album 'Error In The System' (1983).

Lyrics:

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
The count­down starts

Watching in a trance
The crew is certain
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…

4, 3, 2, 1
Earth below us
Drifting, falling
Floating weightless
Calling, call­ing home…

Second stage is cut
We're now in orbit
Stabilizers up
Runnning perfect
Starting to collect
Requested data
"What will 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

4, 3, 2, 1
Earth below us
Drifting, falling
Floating weightless
Calling, call­ing home…

Across the stratosphere
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, coming
Home
