I was listening to Ellie Goulding's song 'Love me like you do' and I 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 light, you're the night

You're the colour of my blood

You're the cure, you're the pain

You're the only thing I wanna touch

Never knew that it could mean so much, so much

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

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

Touch me like you do, ta-ta-touch me like you do

What are you waiting for?

    "I will take you flying through the sky" is a fairly common thing to hear in love songs; this is a variation of that. – Michael Harvey Apr 15 '20 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".
