Annotationen

Ursprünglich hatte das Lied einen dritten Verse, der lautete: «I came outside I saw the nightfall with the rain, Sheet lightning flashes in my brain, Whatever happened to the world we used to know? I've got you coming over fear now.» Diese Zeilen sind als Hinweis zu lesen, dass es im Lied nicht nur um die Suche nach ausserirdischem Leben geht, sondern dass hier der letzte überlebende Mensch auf der Erde verzweifelt nach ausserirdischen Besucher*innen Ausschau hält.

Lyrics

[Verse 1: Simon Le Bon] Only came outside to watch the night fall with the rain I heard you making patterns rhyme Like some new romantic looking for the TV sound You'll see I'm right some other time [Chorus: Simon Le Bon, Andy Taylor & John Taylor] Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life Voices, another sound, can you hear me now? This is Planet Earth, you're looking at Planet Earth Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop, this is Planet Parth [Verse 2: Simon Le Bon] My head is stuck on something precious Let me know if you're coming down to land Is there anybody out there trying to get through? My eyes are so cloudy I can't see you [Chorus: Simon Le Bon, Andy Taylor & John Taylor] Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life Voices, another sound, can you hear me now? This is Planet Earth, you're looking at Planet Earth Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop, this is Planet Earth [Instrumental Bridge] [Chorus: Simon Le Bon, Andy Taylor & John Taylor] Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life Voices, another sound, can you hear me now? This is Planet Earth, you're looking at Planet Earth Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop, this is Planet Earth [Outro: Simon Le Bon, Andy Taylor & John Taylor] Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop, calling Planet Earth Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop, looking at Planet Earth Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop, this is Planet Earth
