"Satellite" as written by and Paul Carrack....
This phone bill is a lesson I should learn
But paying for the damage is modus operandi
It's the grandest scheme for keeping people localized
I'd hold your hand if you weren't in Boston tonight
I would help intwine each seperate finger
Into sensitive parts of the back of my skull
The only thing you can't have is my forehead
That's where the doctor likes to go

I'm the coldest satellite in the farthest corners
Of a solar system full of ordinary people
Just like you

What you are like doesn't really matter
It's how influences get applied to your life
I guess you don't like me much now that you know all my secrets
I can't blame you for never asking why
It can't be cut and dried like it's from the butcher
But someone always gets drained just the same
I thought if I'd hide it all you'd lik eme better
The way you'd treat a girl you'll never see again

I'm the coldest satellite in the farthest corners
Of a solar system full of ordinary people
Just like you

Who would want a housepet for a housewife?
Traing should be left back in home ec
If you need me I'll be in the closet waiting
To serve you and serve your closest friends
I wouldn't raise a stink, I'd bring you paper and ink
So you can write about how flawed I really am
I'd bring you a drink when you couldn't get to sleep
And watch you from a pillow on the floor

I'm the coldest satellite in the farthest corners
Of a solar system full of ordinary people
Just like you
