Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness - Cecilia And The Satellite Lyrics




I locked myself in a hotel room
Then waited all night for the walls to move
I've loved some girls that I barely knew
I've made some friends, and I've lost some too
Crashed my car, I was seventeen
My mother in the seat riding next to me
The things I've learned from a broken mirror
How a face can change when a heart knows fear
For all the things my eyes have seen, the best by far is you

[Chorus:]
If I could fly, then I would know
What life looks like from up above and down below
I'd keep you safe, I'd keep you dry
Don't be afraid, Cecilia, I'm the satellite
And you're the sky

I've café crawled through Amsterdam
Been around the world with a punk rock band
And I've seen London, and I've played Japan
I've been knocked down, I got up again
For all the places I have been, I'm no place without you

[Chorus:]
If I could fly, then I would know
What life looks like from up above and down below
I'd keep you safe, I'd keep you dry
Don't be afraid, Cecilia, I'm the satellite
And you're the sky

I'm the satellite
And you're the sky

For all the things my hands have held, the best by far is you

[Chorus:]
If I could fly, then I would know
What life looks like from up above and down below
I'd keep you safe, I'd keep you dry
Don't be afraid, Cecilia, I'm the satellite
And you're the sky

And you're the sky

I'm the satellite
And you're the sky

And you're the sky

  37. kailani Dutra

    Eu me tranco em um quarto de hotel
    I lock myself in a hotel room

    Estive esperando a noite toda para as paredes se moverem
    Been waiting all night for the walls to move

    Eu amei algumas garotas que mal conhecia
    I've loved some girls that I barely knew

    Eu fiz alguns amigos e também perdi alguns
    I've made some friends, and I've lost some too

    Caiu meu carro, eu tinha 17 anos
    Crashed my car, I was 17

    Minha mãe no banco andando ao meu lado
    My mother in the seat riding next to me

    As coisas que aprendi de um espelho quebrado
    The things I've learned from a broken mirror

    Como um rosto pode mudar quando um coração conhece o medo
    How a face can change when a heart knows fear

    Através de todas as coisas que meus olhos viram
    Through all the things my eyes have seen

    O melhor é de longe você
    The best by far is you
    Se eu pudesse voar
    If I could fly

    Então eu saberia
    Then I would know

    Como é a vida de cima para baixo?
    What life looks like from up above and down below

    Eu te manteria seguro
    I'd keep you safe

    Eu te manteria seco
    I'd keep you dry

    Não tenha medo Cecilia
    Don't be afraid Cecilia

    Eu sou o satélite
    I'm the satellite

    E você é o céu
    And you're the sky
    Eu tenho café arrastado por Amsterdã
    I've cafe crawled through Amsterdam

    Eu estive ao redor do mundo com uma banda de punk rock
    I've been around the world with a punk rock band

    E eu vi Londres, e eu já joguei no Japão
    And I've seen London, and I've played Japan

    Eu fui derrubado, me levantei novamente
    I've been knocked down, I got up again

    Para todos os lugares em que estive
    For all the places I have been

    Eu não sou lugar sem você
    I'm no place without you
    Se eu pudesse voar
    If I could fly

    Então eu saberia
    Then I would know

    Como é a vida de cima para baixo?
    What life looks like from up above and down below

    Eu te manteria seguro
    I'd keep you safe

    Eu te manteria seco
    I'd keep you dry

    Não tenha medo Cecilia
    Don't be afraid Cecilia

    Eu sou o satélite
    I'm the satellite

    E você é o céu
    And you're the sky
    Eu sou o satélite
    I'm the satellite

    E você é o céu
    And you're the sky
    Por todas as coisas que minhas mãos seguraram
    For all the things my hands have held

    O melhor é de longe você
    The best by far is you
    Se eu pudesse voar
    If I could fly

    Então eu saberia
    Then I would know

    Como é a vida de cima para baixo?
    What life looks like from up above and down below

    Eu te manteria seguro
    I'd keep you safe

    Eu te manteria seco
    I'd keep you dry

    Não tenha medo Cecilia
    Don't be afraid Cecilia

    Eu sou o satélite
    I'm the satellite

    E você é o céu
    And you're the sky
    E você é o céu
    And you're the sky
    Eu sou o satélite
    I'm the satellite

    E você é o céu
    And you're the sky
    E você é o céu
    And you're the sky

  58. Robert Mitchell

    I hope to hold a woman named Jo someday. I will be your satellite and you can be my sky!

  59. Katlyn McIntire

    This video has nothing to do with a mother who passed away... We see Cecilia as a baby and the things that he's experienced and speaks of... We see her grown up and her remembering... It's all about father and child... Seriously, this is a song that will stay stuck... And if people would really listen, if only... Nothing said about a mother or one that passed. And even in the video... Zero hints towards that. Listen. <3

  60. Nicole Valentine

    I love this song it is so sweet

  61. Alidja Catalan

    Wish this was a movie :")

  66. Julian 3

    *There are no words to express how much I love this song and the meaning....bless you and thank you!*

  67. Heartless Pilot

    I feel like this is the song everyone knows the lyrics to when it comes on, even if they don't know the name of it and think they've never heard it. For some reason we all just know

  68. Andrew Mcmasters

    Just went to his show last night

  69. Phun

  70. みっしい

  79. Cheyenne C. Moon Desertfox Kana - Aliengirl

    wow :)

  80. Kathleen Reiser

    This song gives us parents the words to express the love we have for our children.
    Also, acknowledges the life and mistakes we made along the way to be the parents we are, today.

  81. Brian Reese

    This is for my daughter who was allowed to know her father for a brief moment and then taken away when he would not be forced to live in an abusive life. Never allow your heart to bend or break .. This world is yours to take. I love you now. I love you then. I will love you always. I will surround you with my Faith. I will drown you in my light. I will go around you like a satellite for your life and for mine. We are two parts of one heart my baby girl. Dad loves you always.

  82. Mason Torgeson

    My cousin was named after this song, its a pretty good song

  83. Rates farum

    This song is just beautiful.
    I was introduced to Cecillia and the Satellite by a friend in high school. I'll never forget the lessons he taught me and the true meaning to what being human is. He was a man I truly looked up to and respected, one I considered family.
    Now I can never listen to this song without tearing up. Rest in Peace Christopher, I truly hope you found that happiness you were looking for.

  84. Luiz Miguel

    😍😍

  85. Riley S.

    I don't ever cry while listening to music. I found this song a couple years ago and instantly liked it. Then I listened to it again one day and it brought tears to my eyes. I was probably having a rough day around that time.

  86. Lynn Harvey

    I hear you sing and John Lennon comes to mind. You are so unique.
