Satellite's gone
up to the skies
Thing like that drive me
out of my mind

I watched it for a little while
I like to watch things on TV

Satellite of love
satellite of love
Satellite of love
satellite of

Satellite's gone
way up to Mars

Soon it will be filled
with parking cars

I watch it for a little while
I love to watch things on TV

Satellite of love
satellite of love
Satellite of love
satellite of

I've been told that you've been bold
with Harry, Mark and John

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday to Thursday
with Harry, Mark and John

Satellite's gone
up to the skies
Thing like that drive me
out of my mind

I watched it for a little while
I love to watch things on TV

Satellite of love
satellite of love
Satellite of love
satellite of

Satellite of love
Satellite of love
Satellite of love
Satellite of love
Satellite of love
Satellite of love
...

    Jealousy is the satellite of love. It's something that, in lou's arguable opinion, just belongs to love and turns around and around it never goign away from it. He often described the song as "describing the worst kind of jealousy"

    It's about david bowie. Ziggy stardust was a bit of an alien or "space oddity". Bowie produced reed's transformer album and also sang back vocals. Great album and this song is super beautiful.
