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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Chorus:
  C   G  Am
I'm a satellite
      F   C  G
I'm a satellite
            F                C
I'm on the outside, lookin' in
             G                   Am
They don't know just where I've been
       F  C  -G-
I'm a satellite


       Db  Ab  Bbm
I'm a satellite
       Gb  Db  Ab
I'm a satellite
       Gb            Db              Ab                Bbm
I can make it on my own, the fallen star of a one-man show
       Gb  Db  Ab
I'm a satellite

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