"Satellites" as written by Jonas Von Der Burg, Niclas Von Der Burg and Anoo Finn Ananda Bhagavan....
Even an angel can end up falling
Don't you cry, because you're crawling
Start again, it's a beautiful morning
For satellites

Well, they said it was time for changing
Rise and shine
Everybody's making it, but you
And they told you to trust your dreaming
But it's hard to believe a feeling
That you just don't know

Even an angel can end up falling
Don't you cry, because you're crawling
Start again, it's a beautiful morning
For satellites
Even an angel can end up falling
Don't you cry, because you're crawling
Start again, it's a beautiful morning
For satellites

You can try and walk on water
In the end everybody
Walks all over you
No, you don't like the sight of mirrors
Cause you're scared that the face
Will see, will look just like before

Even an angel can end up falling
Don't you cry, because you're crawling
Start again, it's a beautiful morning
For satellites
Even an angel can end up falling
Don't you cry, because you're crawling
Start again, it's a beautiful morning
For satellites

All I want is you
Let me take you back
Where you once belong
All I want is you
It will be alright if you come along
You were never gone

Even an angel can end up falling
Don't you cry, because you're crawling
Start again, it's a beautiful morning
For satellites
Even an angel can end up falling
Don't you cry, because you're crawling
Start again, it's a beautiful morning
For satellites

Even an angel can end up falling
Don't you cry, because you're crawling
Start again, it's a beautiful morning
For satellites
Satellites

    General CommentI think the "I" is comforting the "you", but the "you" resents (real or implied?) dependency on "I". In other words, "Don't feel bad that you couldn't make it without me, because I'll take you back."

    General CommentAmazing song for clubbing. Brings fond memories of Menorca this summer.

    I think the song might be about change. I'm not really sure about the metaphor of satellites.. maybe something to do with orbits?

    One of the best songs this summer imo

    My InterpretationI think the song is about someone who put everything into and left everything behind to "follow their dreams" only to find out that it wasn't what they expected and that they weren't making it, so they have to start over again with a different goal. I think the vocalist is singing in perspective of someone who was a friend/flame before they decided to go off chasing that dream and she is saying that there will always be a place for the failed dreamer in their heart no matter what happens.

    I also don't get the satellites reference, I actually came to this site to hopefully get some clarity on it. My best guess is something like "you couldn't make it as an angel, but you could be a satellite, and they still look over earth like an angel but they're less prestigious"

    General CommentTells of a person who tried to do something but failed because she was too good.
    Even if you walk on water
    People will still walk all over you if you are too sweet. I think so too she’s singing for herself. She’s left crawling on the floor and everybody around her made it.
    She’s encouraging herself to start again .
    For satellite ( be a moon if you can’t be thee sun or the earth )
    TRy and uplift yourself
