I know you're somewhere out there,
Somewhere far away
I want you back
I want you back.

My neighbors think I'm crazy,
But they don't understand
You're all I had
You're all I had.

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'm feeling like I'm famous,
The talk of the town.
They say I've gone mad.
Yeah, I've gone mad.

But they don't know what I know,
'Cause when the sun goes down
Someone's talking back.
Yeah, they're talking back.

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

Do you ever hear me calling?
'Cause every night, I'm talkin' to the moon
Still 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 know you're somewhere out there,
Somewhere far away...

    hey this song has alot of meaning to me. i had this girlfriend before and we had to part because we are different races and our parents didnt agree. so we feel the same. we want to see each other so bad. i stay up all night thinking of her. so hes talking to the moon because thats the only way to communicate to her. like i do. although in reality yes thats impossible unless your next door neighbors. lol. gosh people get the meaning

    well let's just i abused the replay button..:D

    the song means that hes really in love with a girl that he can't see.
    so the stars remind him of the sparkle in her eyes
    and the moon symbolizes the only connection he has to her.
    with that kind of love, no way she coodnt hear him. :D
