Wedding Song: Cecilia and the Satellite

This song by Andrew McMahon In the Wilderness would make a sweet first dance song or father daughter wedding song. It’s a little fast so I think the more out of the box you can be with your dancing, the better (think lots of twirls)!

The lyrics are below:

I lock myself in a hotel room
Been waiting 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 17
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
Through 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

I’ve cafe crawled through Amsterdam
I’ve 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

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
