She packed my bags last night pre flight
Zero hour nine a.m.
And I'm gonna be high, as a kite by then
I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife

    Hmm, the kindest thing I can say about Taupin's lyrics is they have a childlike charm.

    Heartbreaking song. Feels like someone who worked long and hard to get this fascinating job, and is now realizing that, no matter how grand a job is, it's never gonna be as fulfilling as having a family and being around them. A reminder for all those who "burn their fuse" at work

    Rumour has it that Elton got pushed into the Beverley Hills Hilton pool with his clothes after a surprise encounter by David Bowie for "stealing his producer", Tony Visconti... Tony produced David's "Space Oddity"

    I grew up with song. I will forever love and cherish it. <3 To tell you the truth, when I was younger, I thought it was about aliens and robots since it was talking about space. XD
