Satellites by The Satellite Station #Folk #Inspiration

Music is a powerful stimulant for me to write new poetry and stir up emotions and feelings in me. Especially when I listen while reading the lyrics and try to “picture” the lyrics in my life. What inspires your work?

Check out this song by The Satellite Station called “Satellites.” Lyrics below:

How many times can we have the same conversation?
I’m doing my best, but I know that I test your patience
‘Cause you think like a computer, and my brain turns like a kaleidoscope
Your heart is an engine and mine is just sputtering, blowing smoke

The good, the bad, the life we had
Two fires in the night
We were just satellites
The light, the dark, the match, the spark
They watch as we ignite
We were just satellites

Do you recall you would rest your head on my shoulder?
But now when you’re near, I can feel the air growing colder
‘Cause your voice was a story, and my voice just sounds like a rainy day
Your eyes are electric, and mine are just cycling shades of gray

The good, the bad, the life we had
Two fires in the night
We were just satellites
The light, the dark, the match, the spark
They watch as we ignite
We were just satellites

And we burn, burn up in the atmosphere
Hold each over close so I don’t disappear
So I don’t disappear
Just stop, I can feel your racing heart
Only skips a beat, when you are falling hard
When you are falling hard

The good, the bad, the life we had
Two fires in the night
We were just satellites
The light, the dark, the match, the spark
They watch as we ignite
We were just satellites
