Space Oddity

You were a man of spaceships,

But you took the casket…
You were a man of the night,
So into the night may you shine bright…
Like stars and dynamite…
You left before I got to you..
You left before I could say goodbye.
Ah, Major Tom, you are now just a star in the sky.

You were odd like oddity…
Typical like weird..
Like androgynous…
You had those colours pretty deranged…
It feels like- like too much..
Time was really crunch…
You left before I could say goodbye,
Ah, Major Tom, you are now just a star in the sky.

Surreal and pale…
You left a token gift,
Before that last exhale..
You may not have flesh but you are here…
Or there, some place definitely enchanting..
But you left before I could say goodbye,
Ah, Major Tom, you are now just a star in the sky.

You. Me.
We will see each other soon I reckon,
Our lives-a blip before death beckons..
And as you now strum that guitar to others,
I hear its faint rhythm
And we shall meet again- for tea and that musical high,
For now, Major Tom, you are a star in the sky.
