Sam Tsui - Rocket Man Lyrics

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
It's lonely out in space
On such a timeless flight

And I think it's gonna be a long long time
'Til touchdown brings me 'round again to find
I'm not the man they think I am at home
Oh, no, no, no
I'm a rocket man
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone
Burning out his fuse up here alone

Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids
In fact it's cold as hell
And there's no one there to raise them if you did

And all this science I don't understand
It's just my job five days a week
A rocket man, a rocket man

And I think it's gonna be a long long time
'Til touchdown brings me 'round again to find
I'm not the man they think I am at home
Oh, no, no, no
I'm a rocket man
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone

And I think it's gonna be a long long time
'Til touchdown brings me 'round again to find
I'm not the man they think I am at home
Oh, no, no, no, no, no
I'm a rocket man
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone
Burning out his fuse up here alone

And I think it's gonna be a long long time
And I think it's gonna be a long long time
And I think it's gonna be a long long time

  11. Mellowney Vallen

    I know I'm late but I completely forgot to ask: Have you seen the movie?

  12. Yin YIN

    Sam You're the BEST.

  13. Valerie Rosset

    Your Song is my favourite!

  14. EenСole

    This sounds like what if Rocket Man was released nowadays as a modern pop-song

  15. King Timothy Daniel Leyba

    You have such a beautiful high tenor voice Sam Tsui!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3! I am a tenor but I'm not a high tenor.

  16. Claude Summers

    Love this cover so much. Sam brings out the sadness at the heart of the song. I am happy that it is so stripped down. So many covers of this song (and sometimes performances by Elton himself) are over produced. Thank you, Sam!

  17. Don Jefferson

    Very nice!!!

  18. Yehia Ghareeb

    Thank you Sam tsui

  19. Nadgi Gidou

    Ilove you

    Asia Jankowiak

    mein Schatz ich hab dich lieb❤einen schönen Tag für dich..☺☉💕🌸💕😚😚

  23. Opportunist

    You have such an amazing and powerful voice. Fantastic :)

  24. Ariel Masciotta

    Hey Sam, you should do a cover for Speechless from the new Aladdin movie, with your voice it should be a masterpiece!


    ❤️ 🧡 💛 💚 💙 💜 🖤

  26. Rollator Rambo

    Wouw , trotz dem das ich musikalisch bin , wie ein Mammut im Permafrost , in mir schreit alles nach einem Duett mit Elton !!!

  27. Ash Hawking

    Your voice is so sweet, that's wonderful and very pleasant to listen

  28. Sophie X.

    This was beautiful 💕

  29. Mapeshy 527

    Can we just acknowledge his skill cause singing WHILE playing the piano is gOsH DaRN hARd

  30. GoldenState

    Great cover.

  31. Claire c

    I've just went back to your and Kurt's cover of Unwell in 2010 n somehow I found that your vocal skills have improved so much after all these years... So artistic, so beautiful. This cover is awesome Sam

  32. Tonniece A

    Stunning rendition Sam. Loved it. Hugz

  33. Kanya

    Rocket maaaaaan 🚀

  34. Profonde légèreté

    Sooo beautiful!!! 😍

  35. Soto Kar

    You have such a beautiful voice!Great cover!!!

  36. singasongbremen

    You can't say that this cover is better than the original... but that is just 'cause it's from Elton John. Otherwise I would say it's better !! ;)

  37. Thisisace

    So beautiful.

  38. Markie W

    You should do Candle in the Wind next!

  39. Mark Jayson Santos

    You made a cover of Jason Mraz cover of Elton John's Rocketman.

  40. Scott Roberts

    Well done young man. Love it. And this from a person who listened to the original when in came out. (while I was in college)

  41. IndigoFire

    I'm so excited to see the movie, thank you for doing this!

  42. Hidi99

    Awesome :)

  43. matthew patton

    Could you do Elton John's song, Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word? I think that your passion and sincerity would carry through.

  44. phb85

    wonderful, love it

  45. David Griffin

    Hmm. I like the clear enunciation of the lyrics, but to me this track is over sentimentalised and doesn't work (for me anyway). TBH Elton's tracks are difficult to cover; "I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues" would have been a much better track to cover, for you (IMHO).

  46. Ian Pogonowski

    Nice one Sam - really nice take on this! :-) If interested I play piano too and done some covers of Elton recently. Cheers, Ian

  47. matthew patton

    Love it.

  48. Alan Meyer

    Live shows in June ?????? Where ??????
