lyrics

Look down and you'll see it like a satellite
Wake up and you'll follow every sunrise
Don't treat it like a prototype
Take a hold, don't throw it away on hindsight

You're not yourself, no gravity
Is it something that I'm missing?
Forgive yourself, get lost in me
Is it someone that I’m missing?

You’re a satellite (satellite, satellite)
And you’re looking for attraction
But your stars won't let it be
(You’re just a child in the dark, oh oh)
Always a satellite (satellite, satellite)
And if you're running round in circles
Take a straight line back to me
(I won't tear you apart, oh oh)

Back down if you put me on a pedestal
High up like a distant garbage angel
Don't send me any valentines
Get a grip, take me home alone, don't waste time

Forget yourself, get lost in me
Is it something that I'm missing?
Forgive yourself some vanity
Is it someone else you're missing?

You’re a satellite (satellite, satellite)
And you’re looking for attraction
But your stars won't let it be
(You’re just a child in the dark, oh oh)
Always a satellite (satellite, satellite)
And if you're running round in circles
take a straight line back to me
(I won't tear you apart, oh oh)

Oh you’re spinning electric down my spine
Don’t ever forget that you’re running out of time
You live in the past, live for tomorrow
You’ve got to release your grip and let it go

You are spinning electric down my spine
Don’t ever forget that you’re running out of time
Oh, you live in the past, live for tomorrow
You’ve got to release your grip and let it go

Child in the dark
Child in the dark
Child in the dark
Child in the dark
I won’t tear you apart
