  • I lock myself in a hotel room
    Been waiting 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 17
    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
    Through all the things my eyes have seen
    The best by far is you

    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 cafe crawled through Amsterdam
    I've 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

    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

    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 Writer/s: ANDERS GRAHN, JAMES FLANNIGAN, ANDREW ROSS MCMAHON
