The Kills – satellite lyrics

Lost her behind the station
Lost her behind the moon
Operator, operator, dial her back
Operator put me through
Ahuuuh, Satellite gave up the ghost too soon
Rising on the thermals
She calling in and out the blue
Ahuuuh, carried her off on a silver spoon
I loved her too long, don't take her too
Oooohhh ohhhhhhh
Oh how he crossed us on that fate your path in my own satellite
What a mess a little time makes to us when time and place collide
Operator, operator, dial her back
Operator, operator, don't take her too.
I loved her too her long, don't love her too
Operator, operator, dial her back
Operator, operator, don't take her too
I love her too her long, don't love her too, don't love her too
Oooohhh ohhhhhhh...

    This is pure speculation and I really have no basis for it, but this might be jamie's reaction to alison's involvement in the dead weather (which is almost as good as the kills btw) with jack white. The line "oh how he crossed us on that fate your path in my own satellite" would make sense in this context because it was pure chance that alison was touring with the raconteurs when jack lost his voice, and she had to sing some of the songs for him. The rest of the song is pretty self explanatory.
