Talking to the Moon Lyrics

I know you're somewhere out there
Somewhere far away
I want you back
I want you back
My neighbours think
I'm crazy
But they don't understand
You're all I have
You're all I have

At night when the stars
light up my room

    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

    When I hear that song, it makes me think of my little dog who passed at 17 years old. How I miss her and how I hope she hears me when I talk to her to tell her I love her

    Whether it is about his mother or not, I believe this could be about a woman who he loved but who is forced to be apart from because of uncontrollable forces. I met a man that I fell deeply inlove with but I’m unable to be with him because he lives in another country. I wasn’t able to talk to him for over a year so I would watch the moon and wonder if he was looking at it too. when I heard this song, I related to it in the sense that Bruno was going through something similar to what I was/am going thru. It could be about his mother, but I choose to believe that I am not the only person going through this.

    I think he is talking about someone he truly loved, and wish to talk to but he can't then he's sitting there talking to the moon.

    I think that he is talking to someone important to him that has passed away.

    I think it might be about somebody very special who either passed away or moved away. "On the other side" heaven on the other side of the moon. People think he had gone mad of how much he missed the person or believe s he is talking with them. I think this song is about hope that the other person is thinking about you.blove this song. So sad and meaningful x

    I definitely believe it's about some who broke up with him. He thought he moved on but then he realized he still cared for. So instead of him texting or calling, he talks to the moon wishing she talks to the moon about him too.

    I think is about missing especially the beloved ones who have gone in a place which he cant reach there ie death, i love this song.

    I think it's about someone who passed away and when it says "At night when the stars
    Light up my room
    I sit by myself
    Talking to the moon
    Tryin' to get to you
    In hopes you're on
    The other side
    Talking to me too
    Or am I a fool
    Who sits alone
    Talking to the moon" I thin it means he is trying to talk to whoever passed and he doesn't know if their answering him or can hear him talking to them.

    This song is for his mother who passed away and this song pretty much os about how he is whishing she would come back. Talking to the moon pretty much means his mother is in hevean.

    It's probably about a person who has passed away and had a strong connection with him.

    This is about him missing his mum and now that she has passed away he talks to the moon in hopes that she'll hear him and that she's watching over him

    You want this girl but you can't have her at the moment. So you think about her. In hopes she will think about you. However you have your doubts she even think about you.
