"Satellite (Vocals by Justine Suissa)" as written by Jonathan David Grant, Paavo Siljamaki, Anthony Patrick James Mcguinness and Justine Suissa....
My love is like first steps in this snow, baby,
I follow you everywhere you go, baby.
The pain as light has come to wake you
But you will never realize
That I inspire the dreams that guide you baby.

You're a half a world away
But in my mind I whisper every single word you say.
And before you sleep at night
You pray to me, your lucky star, your singing satellite.

Your singing satellite
You say a prayer
You say a prayer

You're a half a world away
But in my mind I whisper every single word you say.
And before you sleep at night
You pray to me, your lucky star, your singing satellite.

I follow the winds that bring the cold, baby,
I light a fire in your soul, baby.
The lightest touch of feathers falling
My love may be invisible
But I inspire the dreams that guide you, baby

You're a half a world away
But in my mind I whisper every single word you say.
And before you sleep at night
You pray to me, your lucky star, your singing satellite.

    General Commentthis song is about Paavo (one of the above & beyond DJ's) and his wife. While away from home he sent his wife a christmas card saying that even though he's half a world away, they can still see the same star, and that keeps them connected where ever they are in the world. FYI OceanLab is Above & beyond, but with Justine as there main singer. One of my all time favourite songs. Just beautiful

    My InterpretationFloris De Haan's remix is the only mix for me; i think it emphasizes the energy of the lyrics

    the title can be interpreted as someone who watches a loved one from above

    i would say it's about an entity of higher density, such as a spirit guide or twin flame, expressing their deep eternal love for their departed one in the physical, who has forgotten everything from the higher realms and simply live their life as any other human being

    they express their role as a guide, bringing up the lessons that have to be solved by their counterpart, and helping them accomplish their mission by inspiring them thru their dreams

    the physical being never realize their guide's presence, thus their guide's love appears invisible

    and while they yet communicate by thoughts, the physical being is unaware of the true origin of the messages, but pray to what the believe in

    General CommentThis song means so much to me, and I think it's absolutely beautiful.
    When I listen to it, I see ice white, butter yellow, and gossamer blue. It seems arctic to me. I see someone sleeping in an igloo. I know that sounds crazy, but that's what it's like for me.



    It's about a girl who has assumed responsibility for the physical/ emotional welfare of a human being. That person is extremely vulnerable and weak and needs her very much.

    "And before you sleep at night
    You pray to me, your lucky star, your singing satellite."

    She's that person's caretaker and own personal god. She's the person's satellite because her life revolves around theirs. She figuratively orbits them. I don't know if that's what OceanLab meant at all, but it seems like a pretty metaphor to me. :)

    DaeliS, I don’t think this song is “cheaply shrouding” any messages. I like the points you brought up, and it is possible that the satellite is the personification of drugs and addiction. However, I don’t think that if that were the case it would detract from the beauty and depth of the song.

    General CommentI agree with Sheer all the way. I think the song is in the eyes of someone whose passed away, and singing to someone they were together with before they died.

    General CommentI'm not sure what exactly this song means, but it's extremely beautiful. It sounds like a love song, but what does "the pain as light has come to wake you" mean?

    General CommentEven through the shroud of drugs, there's meaning. I would assume you're the "fool" you were referring to?

    I just think it's a cool song, and heartfelt.

    General Comment>Heh, fool, this song is another cheaply shrouded song about drugs. "You're half a world away" is probobaly referring to a state of delusion or some other drug induced distance, while "I follow you everywhere you go, baby. The pain as light has come to wake you" refers to addiction, and "I follow the winds..invisible" refers to the "invisible" love of a drug. Cheaply shrouded death.

    I guess it depends on your obsession and view of the world. I've always thought this song was about God or some supernatural entity, some part of the arcanea of the world that's beyond human comperehension. 'Before you sleep at night, you pray to me, your lucky star, your singing sattelite' doesn't sound like it's about drugs to me. And nothing about any of Justina/Oceanlab's songs bring to mind any drug images at all. Admittedly, if I ever do try MDMA, I'll be sure to have thousands of watts ready to back up Oceanlab's work. But that's just because it, well, fits. When played with rave power levels, this music can induce ecstacy in me without any drugs at all. It's powerful positive stuff, to me and my mind. Even now, as I listen to it on cheesy laptop speakers, I feel little twinges of happiness, a lightening of mood, and a extreme desire to program repeat play.

    At times I've thought that our bodies and the bit of us that are actually us are completely seperate, and maybe some process relays messages back and forth between them. Astrophysicists have also assured me that we are all made of materials that fused inside the hearts of stars.. so perhaps there's that approach to it as well.

    I don't know. I'd like to hear more guesses as to what this song is about, though.

    General CommentThis song could be a drug reference...but every trance song can be a drug reference. I believe that is the more close minded approach. You can easily write this song off as another thizz reference or it could be a song about a dead loved one. Someone who has passed but is still present in many forms. In the hearts and minds of the people this person has touched. It's a message from the loved one.

    "The lightest touch of feathers falling
    My love might be invisible
    But I inspire the dreams that guide you, baby"

    The person has passed and although nothing tangible remains of them, they are present in the hopes and dreams of the person they are talking to.
