[Reckless Beat & SOTD] Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness – Cecilia and the Satellite

RECKLESS BEATS is a musical feature where I incorporate a little music into this bookish blog.

Today’s song of the day is by Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness. I’ll be completely honest and say that I’ve never heard of his band before this song! I haven’t even listened any of his music in a really long time, so at first I had no idea who Andrew McMahon was! But then, when I thought about… I realized I DID know him from when he was part of Something Corporate (I did love their music).

See — I’m not really big on following where musicians go after they leave bands or bands disassemble and all that. Sometimes, if I hear whatever they do next and love it, I follow them onto their solo careers, but in all honesty? I just love music and when I hear something incredible, regardless of who made it or where it’s from… I just gotta get into it and share it with others!

So without further adieu…

Here’s Cecila and the Satellite, everyone!

 

LYRICS:

I’ve locked myself in a hotel room
Then waited 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 seventeen
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

For 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

Oh, Oh

I’ve café crawled through Amsterdam
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

Oh, Oh
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
