about

Latest challenge from Spintunes.
Write a sequel to a song from the top 20 from any year.

Our Choice for the main challenge... Elton John's "Rocket Man". Which reached Number 6 in the States and Number 2 in the UK. (Kate Bush also covered it, reaching Number 12 in the UK and Number 2 in Australia!)

Here is our sequel...

It's a little sadder than the original...

lyrics

MARS AIN'T THE KIND OF PLACE...
------------------------------------------

Unpack my bags... I'm coming home
and home is where my heart is.
And I've been so long,
it's strange that I can't fly.
Strange that I can't fly.

And now I see, what I could never see
when I flew in the sky.
Forever night, every day!
I could not see the stars.
But now my nights are everything.
The nights will all be mine,
till I'll no longer be,
till I'll no longer be...
... the Rocket Man.


My final flight... came to your door,
our home was left as always.
'cos I'd been gone so long,
and I had flown so high.
I had flown so high.

And now I see, what I could never see,
when I flew in the sky.
Forever night, but now those stars,
I see them in your eyes.
And now our nights are everything.
The nights are yours and mine,
and I'll no longer be,
and I'll no longer be
... the Rocket Man.


This timeless flight,
is done and gone,
but you can give me time,
and give me peace...

So I will be inside your arms,
the only place I long to be,
and I will be,
where I can sleep.
The Earth will cradle me,
and I'll no longer be,
I'll no longer be...
