ANDREW MCMAHON - Cecilia And The Satellite

This song is from the album Andrew McMahon In the Wilderness(2014), released on 14 October 2014.
Even thought the production feels really simple, I liked the message that the singer tried to convey. The emotion in his voice was absolutely brilliant, especially during the "I'm the sky" part. I would have liked some strings or violin kinda instruments in the background, that would have made it even better.

[INTRO] F C
[VERSE]
    F               C
I lock myself in a hotel room
        F                      C
Been waiting all night for the walls to move
       F                C
I've loved some girls that I barely knew
      F                    C
I've made some friends, and I've lost some too
F                C
Crashed my car, I was 17
     F                        C
My mother in the seat riding next to me
     F                         C
The things I've learned from a broken mirror
        F                     C
How a face can change when a heart knows fear
         Dm
Through all the things my eyes have seen
     F
The best by far is you

[CHORUS]
            C
If I could fly
              Am
Then I would know
            F                                 C
What life looks like from up above and down below
              G
I'd keep you safe
              Am
I'd keep you dry
           F
Don't be afraid Cecilia
F          C
I'm the satellite
C
And you're the sky

[INSTRUMENTAL] F C G Am x2

[VERSE]
F                      C
I've cafe crawled through Amsterdam
     F                                C
I've been around the world with a punk rock band
     F                      C
And I've seen London, and I've played Japan
      F                  C
I've been knocked down, I got up again
     Dm
For all the places I have been
     F
I'm no place without you

[CHORUS]
            C
If I could fly
              Am
Then I would know
            F                                 C
What life looks like from up above and down below
              G
I'd keep you safe
              Am
I'd keep you dry
           F
Don't be afraid Cecilia
F          C
I'm the satellite
C
And you're the sky

[INSTRUMENTAL] F C G Am x2

          F C G Am
I'm the satellite
F C G Am
And you're the sky


     Dm
For all the things my hands have held
     F
The best by far is you

[CHORUS]
            C
If I could fly
              Am
Then I would know
            F                                 C
What life looks like from up above and down below
              G
I'd keep you safe
              Am
I'd keep you dry
           F
Don't be afraid Cecilia
F          C
I'm the satellite
C              F C G Am
And you're the sky

I'm the satellite
                F C G Am
And you're the sky

[INSTRUMENTAL] F C G Am

And you're the sky
