"Satellite Heart" as written by and Anya Marina....
So pretty, so smart
Such a waste of a young heart
Whatta pitty whatta sham
What's the matter with you man?

Don't you see what's wrong can't you get it right?
Outta mind, and outta sight
Call on all your girls, don't forget the boys, put a lid on all that noise.

I'm, a satellite heart
Lost in the dark.
I'm spun out so far, you stop I start, but I'll be true to you

I hear your living out of state runnin' in a whole new scene. you know I haven't slept in weeks, you're the only thing I see.

I'm, a satellite heart
Lost in the dark.
I'm spun out so far, you stop I start, but I'll be true to you (x2)

No matter what you do, yeah I'll be true to you.

    General CommentSatellites revolve around earth's gravitational pull right? Maybe her heart acts like a satellite to him kinda like saying "he means the world to me" or he/she is "my world"

    i don't know just a guess :)

    General Commentthis song i dont think was written for twilight/new moon..

    it was playing in the radio of the car when they were talking long before he left her, so it wasnt even relating to her loss. its just coincidence that they picked this song for the soundtrack (:

    General CommentI think this song is written from Bella's perspective just after Edward has left her she feels 'lost in the dark, i'm spun out so far'. It talks about what Bella's imagining Edward doing and where he is 'i hear your living out of state, running in a whole new scene'. It's also as if Bella's wanting to tell him things 'you know i haven't slept in weeks, your the only thing i see'.
    I dont quiet understand the satelite heart. Maybe its like Bella's heart is completely out of this world and no one would be able to be on the same level as her when it comes to heart break?!
    Love the song.

    General CommentThe phrase Satellite Heart is explained by Anya in the chorus. Not sure this song was actually written with Twilight in mind

    My Opinionthe line
    "lost in the dark"
    just kills me. it's such a simple song with simple lyrics but it's so heartwrenching.

    i see the first two verses as the opinions of the people around the speaker.They're basically saying what the hell is wrong with you? why are you so attached to this person? you're too young.

    me thinks. lol.

    General CommentThis song is so sad and so haunting. It was perfect for New Moon. The "satellite heart" part, i think, was that Bella had her heart orbiting around Edward and that she's "lost in the dark" now that he left her. I agree with tj23 about the part where it says "I hear you're living out of state, running in a whole new scene" that Edward left and went to Brazil. Thats what I get from it. It fits very well. I wish I had a voice like Anya's.

    General CommentI think I agree with the majority of interpretations on this thread. The whole
    "I'm a satellite heart...lost in the dark...I'm spun out so far...you stop, I start...But I'll be true to you"
    is so brilliant. It so captures that feeling when you somehow realize how you've made someone your whole world. When things are going well, you don't realize how dependent you've become on someone for your happiness....but when things don't go well, like the person leaving/breaking your heart...then even tho they are gone...your life still totally revolves around them. You still think about them constantly, wonder how to get them back, replay all the conversations over and over in your own head, can't love anyone else, etc. You spin out of control somewhat.
    It's such a lovely, floaty kind of song...and a bit sad but yet a hint of being stubborn...with the declaration of "I'll be true to you..no matter what you do....Yeah, I'll be true to you" just refusing to even try and move on and get over them even tho they hurt them deeply.

    General Commentthere's a part in new moon where bella says she's like a moon revolving around a planet that no longer exists denying the laws of gravity, i think she may have taken this line and ran with it...moon was changed to satellite and there you have it. this is my favorite song on the soundtrack.
