I was listening to Ellie Goulding's song 'Love me like you do' and came across a phrase/ expression let me take you past the satellite. I don't know what it means. I searched for similar phrases like take someone past something and some others but there's nothing that could answer my question.

Does anyone know what it means?

Here are the lyrics of the song:

You're the fear, I don't care
Cause I've never been so high
Follow me through the dark

Let me take you past the satellites

You can see the world you brought to life, to life.

So love me like you do, la-la-love me like you do

    "I will take you flying through the sky" is a fairly common thing to hear in love songs; this is a variation of that. Apr 15, 2020 at 11:36

The lyric you quote says "past the satellites", with the plural. It probably refers to man-made earth satellites. So, in context, "...I've never been so high... follow me... to an altitude higher than that of the satellites".


The phrase means "let me take you to beyond the planet in outer space".
