Verse:
Bm      
I'm surrounded by stars
                 G
They don't hear me wishin'
                 D
It's funny how a crowded room
                 A
Can feel so damn alone
             Bm
They can't hear my mind
                    G
Maybe they're just not listening
        D
So I remind myself
                     A
I'm better off on my own

Pre-Chorus:
      G                D               A
Been standing on the edge for way too long
      G                D              A
Just waiting for the place that I belong

Chorus:
      D   A  Bm
I'm a satellite
      G   D  A
I'm a satellite
            G                D
I'm on the outside, lookin' in
             A                   Bm
They don't know just where I've been
       G  D  -A-
I'm a satellite
                   D
Unless you let me in

Verse:
      Bm
These indigo nights
                            G
It's the life that I've been living
              D
But when the sun comes up
                         A
That's when the shadows grow
                 Bm
They think they got it all
                               G
They don't know what they're missing
        D                                 A
I got so much to give, but I'm keeping it close

Pre-Chorus:
        G                     D                   A
These days are slow, but the night moves way too fast
        G                     D           A
Need to know you want me here before I ask

Chorus:
      D   A  Bm
I'm a satellite
      G   D  A
I'm a satellite
            G                D
I'm on the outside, lookin' in
             A                   Bm
They don't know just where I've been
       G  D  -A-
I'm a satellite
                 -D-Dbm
Unless you let me in

Bridge:
Bm                             
  Guess I gotta be content with 
G
  playing in the darkness
D                    A
  A lovely place to hide
Bm     
  Oh, but hide and seek is only fun if, 
G
  if somebody's looking
D                          A
  And nobody's got the time

Pre-Chorus:
     G             D                 A
Oh, maybe I'm too quick to pass the blame
 G              D              A
Maybe I should ask someone to play

Chorus:
  D   A  Bm
I'm a satellite
      G   D  A
I'm a satellite
            G                D
I'm on the outside, lookin' in
             A                   Bm
They don't know just where I've been
       G  D  -A-
I'm a satellite

       Eb  Bb  Cm
I'm a satellite
       Ab  Eb  Bb
I'm a satellite
       Ab            Eb              Bb                Cm
I can make it on my own, the fallen star of a one-man show
       Ab  Eb  Bb
I'm a satellite

Outro:
Eb  Bb  Cm
Satellite
      Ab  Eb  Bb
I'm a satellite
            Ab              Eb
I'm on the outside looking in
            Bb                   Cm
Want you to know just where I've been
                 Ab  Eb  Bb
Don't wanna be a satellite
                  Eb
So, please let me in

  1. What’s the strumming pattern?

  2. PLEASE DO OUT LOUD

  3. you're welcome

    The reason that the Ab chord doesn’t sound right is cause it’s supposed to be played on the 3rd fret (because of the little three next to the chord chart)

  4. for the ourto i just repeat the chords of the chorus before the key change, sounds a bit better

  5. Move the Ab onto the 3 fret and it sound better and then it’s really easy

  6. Dodieismywife

    THIS IS BEAUTIFUL

  7. the key change may need revising, other than that, it’s pretty good

  8. Does the Ab chord sound wrong to you?

  9. I love this song, but the ab chord is kind of weird. It’s a little off, does anyone know what other chords you could play instead of ab?

  10. +3 and -5 are easiest. love this song!

  11. The Ab chord doen’t sound right to me

    • Dodieismywife

      Are you playing it in the right place, the G shape should go on the third and fourth thing (lol idk the names) and your pinkie should go on the fifth thing…

  12. kurriwonton

    I recomend +4. it sounds the most accurate in my opinion

  13. aesthetic-idccc

    PLEASE ADD OUT LOUD

  14. IVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR SO LONG
