Talking to the Moon Lyrics
Somewhere far away
I want you back
I want you back
My neighbours think
But they don't understand
You're all I have
You're all I have
At night when the stars
light up my room

When I listen to this song it makes me think about my dad who passed away a few years ago. Sometimes i sit by myself and talk to him hoping he hears me. I never really new him until a few months before he passed. It was so hard on me and it didn't help it was 4 days before Christmas. All he wanted was to spend Christmas with me and my sister. I cant think about a lot of things because they remind me of him. Every time i think about it I cry and can't stop. It has not been easy with him gone. I didn't even get to say goodbye. I miss him so much and wish I could of had more time with him.

I feel as if this is Bruno talking out to a loved one that has sadly passed away.

As a mother who has lost my child at 15. I sometimes talk to the moon. Hoping and desperatly wishing she could hear me on the other side.when she was killed my neighbors did think I was crazy, cause I was. I did feel famous because everywhere I went they knew me or her story.but at night when I was alone. I talked to the moon hoping to reach her. Cause its bright and in the heavens. It was all I had to hope for. I miss my girl Amanda and to this day 14years later I talk to the moon hoping she is on the other side
talking to me too

In my opinion, I think this song is about a person missing a guy/gal who passed away that means a lot to him/her so he/she pretends to talk to her by talking to the moon(I think its because moon symbolizes emotional and physical or eternal love).

I love this song so much. It's so sad, I almost cried. It has a very sad meaning, but I don't think it's as extreme as most people would think.
Some may think he is talking to a loved one who has passed on, and I think that is a very reasonable interpretation, with him talking about "the other side."
The reason I believe he's not talking to a dead friend or lover is because he says, "I know you're somewhere out there/Somewhere far away/I want you back/I want you back" and "I'm talking to the moon/Trying to get to you." This spoke to me that he is talking to a friend or lover that he hasn't seen for a while and is fruitlessly (sorry that was harsh) trying to talk to them through the moon.

This song pertains to the feeling of longing to someone whom you have loved and lost. Moving on is so hard, it's like every second your are thinking of that person hoping to be in each others arm again. You don't have anyone to talk to, you talk to the wind, to the moon. Through it, you can say the feelings you have deep within...
when I listen to talking to the moon by Bruno my eyes always look up at the moon or sky because it reminds me of the people I love and miss dearly. this year I've lost so many and the song became very important to me. the song is giving me the interpretation that even though their gone we still connect and a lot of people let their emotion out at night which is where the moon came from in the song. The moon is like the light of our loved ones.

I believe it's someone that can't express their feelings ,and now that the one they have feelings for ,is not with them anymore. ,and they secretly miss them ..if only your mouth can talk like your heart does .

I think it means that he is talking to a lost soulmate or loved one. I talk to the moon hoping to get into contact with my Grandpa. I am currently 13 and he passed away when I was 8. We were best friends he was the only one who understood me.

This one is dark but yall can think about it. It tells a story of a man having a dead wife and was desperately wanting to contact his dead wife leading to a ritual for the moon. He made a successful contact with a spirit but it was not his wife.

I think it is about sadness within someones heart who they love and wont talk back like me i am 14 years old and i love a girl like if she was a soulmate i cant leave her forget her so i began to cry so i think it means that by talking to the moon to talk to the girl on the other side connecting the two sides of the moon to connect us two soulmates.

I think it's about a woman he lost and loved, I understand how he feels and it sucks but we can't stay sad our whole lives because there so much to smile about<3.so keep your head up high!

I love listening to this song cause it makes me think about my dog who I lost 4 days ago... with my situation it wasn't always easy my parents are separated since I was 2 years old I'm presently 14. I live with my mom because my dad has anger issues and hits everything on his way when he is angry. But my mom isn't the best also she manipulates to have what she wants. I still go at my dads on every 2 week ends and I had one thing who was protecting me every time my dad used to get mad and that was my precious puppy who was only 3 years old he would listen and understand me but I lost him so now I'm here every night talking to the moon hoping he listen even though I know I sit alone talking to the moon
