Can anybody hear me?
Or am I talking to myself?
My mind is running empty
In the search for someone else
Who doesn't look right through me
It's all just static in my head
Can anybody tell me why
I'm lonely like a satellite?

Cause tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut
Sending SOS from this tiny box
And I lost all signal when I lifted up
Now I'm stuck out here and the world forgot
Can I please come down? (come down)
Because I'm tired of drifting round and round (and round)
Can I please come down?

I'm deafened by the silence
Is it something that I've done?
I know that there are millions
I can't be the only one
Who's so disconnected
It's so different in my head.
Can anybody tell me why
I'm lonely like a satellite?

Cause tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut
Sending SOS from this tiny box
And I lost all signal when I lifted up
Now I'm stuck out here and the world forgot
Can I please come down? (come down)
Because I'm tired of drifting round and round (and round)
Can I please come down?

Now I lie awake and scream
In a zero gravity
And it's starting to weigh down on me.
Let's abort this mission now
Can I please come down?

So tonight I'm calling all astronauts
All lonely people that the world forgot
If you hear my voice come pick me up
Are you out there?
'Cause you're all I've got!

And tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut
Sending SOS from this tiny box
And I lost all signal when I lifted up
Now I'm stuck out here and the world forgot

Cause tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut
Sending SOS from this tiny box
To the lonely people that the world forgot
Are you out there?
Cause you're all I've got!

Can I please come down? (please please please)
Cause I'm tired of drifting round and round (I'm tired of drifting round)
Can I please come down? (please please please)
Can I please come down?
Can I please come down?

    For me, the astronaut here is like a person who feel so abandoned. A person who needs someone to understand them about his life and what's his going through but unfortunately, no one wants or can get through with him. He thought that people think he's not existing at all.

    For me, its about a person - the astronaut who wants to find someone who is willing to listen to them, someone who they can share their thoughts with and someone who can understand them. And this is their final attempt at reaching out to the world after being 'drifting' around various groups of people that doesn't understand them.
    It a song that I can relate to even when I first heard it.

    The astronaut is, in my opinion, a person who is lonely and want to find someone else like him, in the way that the person who he is looking for is also an astronaut. This person is not meant to be the one you love, but just the one you need. A lonely person who is looking for his soul sister, or just a friend that understands him like no one ever did. A lost soul, an astronaut!

    A person stuck in a world in which he/she believes no one can understanding him and its choking and weighing down on him/her. They feel alone and forgotten. They are looking for the love of their life but the relationship might not have worked out and they still feel stuck up in space and alone and left behind from that relationship they want to get over the heart break/ lonliness.

    The singer poignantly describes his current state of mind-of being lonely and missing the one who, he wishes, could be his. He doesn't want to be so "alone like a satellite", where he uses this similie throughout the song, comparing the loneliness he is going through. Also, as there are many satellites, so are many lonely people: "i know that there are millions". He has noble thoughts-he "calls" upon all those lonely people out there-to break free from these strong chains of loneliness. He pleads, rather begs, to "come down", which means, to break away from his present state.
