"Rocket Love" as written by and Stevie Wonder....
Do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do
Do do do, do do do, do do do-oo

I longed for you since I was born
A woman sensitive and warm
And that you were

With pride and strength no one would test
But yet have feminine finesse
And so much more

You took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back
Down to this cold, cold world
Took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back
Down to this cold, cold world

A female Shakespeare of your time
With looks to blow Picasso's mind
You were the best

Your body moved with grace and song
Like symphonies by Bach or Brahms
Nevertheless, oh oh

You took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back
Down to this cold, cold world
Ooh you took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back
Down to this cold, cold world

Da da da, da da da, da da da, da da da
Da da da, da da da-aa

The passion burning in your heart
Would make hell's fire seem like a spark
Where did it go

Just why that you would overnight
Turn love to stone as cold as ice
I'll never know

But you took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back
Down to this cold, cold world
Baby you took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back
Down to this cold, cold world

Cold, too cold, you took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back
Down to this cold, cold world
Oh, oh, oh, took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back
Down to into this cold, cold world

I would not do that to a dog
Took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back
Down to this cold, cold world
You took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back
Down to this cold, cold world
Ooh baby
Rocket love

    General CommentI'm not sure if Stevie Wonder was born to a mother addicted to crack, but this song seems to come from a new born child's perspective:

    Cold, too cold, you took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
    But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back down to this cold, cold world

    I think maybe Stevie just reflected on the hardships he had to face being blind. I think he may have been on the brink of death when he was born, almost to heaven, and they revived him. In this song, he's talking to his mother. (IMO)

    General CommentConsidering that this song is from "Hotter Than July", I think this song is about the same lady in "Lately" (IMO)

    General CommentThis song is about the wonderful feeling of falling in love only to discover the feeling is no longer mutual. Crack had not been invented when Stevie Wonder was born.
