Cecilia And The Satellite
Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness Lyrics


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

And you're the sky

And you're the sky

I'm the satellite
And you're the sky

And you're the sky

I fell in love with this song as a teenager and it’s stuck with me. I’ll be back in a few years when I’m planning on having kiddos; and I’m hoping my first daughter will be Cecelia. ❤️

Shawn White

My youngest daughter is named Cecilia. She's 2

Sadly Beautiful

I hate the word k****s. It's so banal.

Collette Dionne

@Pemtl the song is actually about him and his daughter

Pemtl

hm i was thinking that those fields could hide a body very well idk why u 2 were thinking about kids

Collette Dionne

I was planning on doing the same!

I heard this song for the first time the day after my dad died. My name is cicely but my family occasionally calls me Cecilia. I bawl my eyes out everytime I hear it. He didn't want me to be afraid. And sometimes.. this song makes me feel like he's moving through me, like a satellite does through space. Guiding me. Protecting me. Sometimes this song is the only thing that makes it okay for a moment that he's gone.

Dean Jenkins

Godbless u n family energies join back up I belive this 🙌

Hugh Junit

You are so right, he's there with you watching and guiding like a good daddy always will.......from another good daddy who will keep that same promise to my kids, like my father before me did when we learned he didn't have much longer due to cancer. Stand strong and live a good life

Never forget it… everything you’re noticing, feeling, understanding and seeing it’s for you. It’s letting you know you’re not alone. 🫂
