ROLLING STONES LYRICS

2000 LIGHT YEARS FROM HOME

First recorded on October 16, 1967, the song was not meant to be released. But after Brian Jones added the mellotron to it, it was added to and became perhaps the best song on Satanic Majesties.
Vocals: Mick Jagger Mellotron & Piano: Brian Jones Bass: Bill Wyman Guitar: Keith Richards Drums: Charlie Watts Percussion: Mick Jagger & Brian Jones
 
2000 LIGHT YEARS FROM HOME
(Jagger/Richards)

Sun turnin' 'round with graceful motion
We're setting off with soft explosion
Bound for a star with fiery oceans
It's so very lonely, you're a hundred light years from home

Freezing red deserts turn to dark
Energy here in every part
It's so very lonely, you're six hundred light years from home

It's so very lonely, you're a thousand light years from home
It's so very lonely, you're a thousand light years from home

Bell flight fourteen you now can land
See you on Aldebaran, safe on the green desert sand
It's so very lonely, you're two thousand light years from home
It's so very lonely, you're two thousand light years from home
