    I understand the video. Her mother lives on in the book. When the book her mother made for her daughter is opened her mother wakes up and looks up twords the sky and smiles because she gets to see her daughter. As the page is turned she jumps into the water and emerges in the next page. After her journey she gets back on the boat and sails back to the same spot in the ocean and sleeps, waiting for her daughter to visit her again.

    I don't ever cry while listening to music. I found this song a couple years ago and instantly liked it. Then I listened to it again one day and it brought tears to my eyes. I was probably having a rough day around that time.

    This song is just beautiful.
    I was introduced to Cecillia and the Satellite by a friend in high school. I'll never forget the lessons he taught me and the true meaning to what being human is. He was a man I truly looked up to and respected, one I considered family.
    Now I can never listen to this song without tearing up. Rest in Peace Christopher, I truly hope you found that happiness you were looking for.

    This is for my daughter who was allowed to know her father for a brief moment and then taken away when he would not be forced to live in an abusive life. Never allow your heart to bend or break .. This world is yours to take. I love you now. I love you then. I will love you always. I will surround you with my Faith. I will drown you in my light. I will go around you like a satellite for your life and for mine. We are two parts of one heart my baby girl. Dad loves you always.

    This song gives us parents the words to express the love we have for our children.
    Also, acknowledges the life and mistakes we made along the way to be the parents we are, today.

    This video has nothing to do with a mother who passed away… We see Cecilia as a baby and the things that he's experienced and speaks of… We see her grown up and her remembering… It's all about father and child… Seriously, this is a song that will stay stuck… And if people would really listen, if only… Nothing said about a mother or one that passed. And even in the video… Zero hints towards that. Listen. <3

    Eu me tranco em um quarto de hotel
    I lock myself in a hotel room

    Estive esperando a noite toda para as paredes se moverem
    Been waiting all night for the walls to move

    Eu amei algumas garotas que mal conhecia
    I've loved some girls that I barely knew

    Eu fiz alguns amigos e também perdi alguns
    I've made some friends, and I've lost some too

    Caiu meu carro, eu tinha 17 anos
    Crashed my car, I was 17

    Minha mãe no banco andando ao meu lado
    My mother in the seat riding next to me

    As coisas que aprendi de um espelho quebrado
    The things I've learned from a broken mirror

    Como um rosto pode mudar quando um coração conhece o medo
    How a face can change when a heart knows fear

    Através de todas as coisas que meus olhos viram
    Through all the things my eyes have seen

    O melhor é de longe você
    The best by far is you
    Se eu pudesse voar
    If I could fly

    Então eu saberia
    Then I would know

    Como é a vida de cima para baixo?
    What life looks like from up above and down below

    Eu te manteria seguro
    I'd keep you safe

    Eu te manteria seco
    I'd keep you dry

    Não tenha medo Cecilia
    Don't be afraid Cecilia

    Eu sou o satélite
    I'm the satellite

    E você é o céu
    And you're the sky
    Eu tenho café arrastado por Amsterdã
    I've cafe crawled through Amsterdam

    Eu estive ao redor do mundo com uma banda de punk rock
    I've been around the world with a punk rock band

    E eu vi Londres, e eu já joguei no Japão
    And I've seen London, and I've played Japan

    Eu fui derrubado, me levantei novamente
    I've been knocked down, I got up again

    Para todos os lugares em que estive
    For all the places I have been

    Eu não sou lugar sem você
    I'm no place without you
    Se eu pudesse voar
    If I could fly

    Então eu saberia
    Then I would know

    Como é a vida de cima para baixo?
    What life looks like from up above and down below

    Eu te manteria seguro
    I'd keep you safe

    Eu te manteria seco
    I'd keep you dry

    Não tenha medo Cecilia
    Don't be afraid Cecilia

    Eu sou o satélite
    I'm the satellite

    E você é o céu
    And you're the sky
    Eu sou o satélite
    I'm the satellite

    E você é o céu
    And you're the sky
    Por todas as coisas que minhas mãos seguraram
    For all the things my hands have held

    O melhor é de longe você
    The best by far is you
    Se eu pudesse voar
    If I could fly

    Então eu saberia
    Then I would know

    Como é a vida de cima para baixo?
    What life looks like from up above and down below

    Eu te manteria seguro
    I'd keep you safe

    Eu te manteria seco
    I'd keep you dry

    Não tenha medo Cecilia
    Don't be afraid Cecilia

    Eu sou o satélite
    I'm the satellite

    E você é o céu
    And you're the sky
    E você é o céu
    And you're the sky
    Eu sou o satélite
    I'm the satellite

    E você é o céu
    And you're the sky
    E você é o céu
    And you're the sky
