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 didn't 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 that's the only way to communicate to her. Like I do. Although in reality yes that's impossible unless your next door neighbors. Lol. Gosh people get the meaning.

    This song means a lot to me.
    My fiance left me last year after telling me that he had been with someone for three years (while with me for 10) I was devisated but like a fool I said we can work it out. He then said no I love her its over.
    We had spend so much time saving for our house he now lives in with presumably her. We planned our wedding and it would have been last month. Hum well great and now I am ready to move on and this song to me says.
    There is someone out there looking for something, looking for someone like me. Answering my questions that I have in my mind. Looking down and guiding me towards them. This song is my hope that I will find someone soon and that I sould hold on because there is someone.
    You might be my someone but I guess I may never no.

    I love a man who was almost a year I melwati my day with him, and because of his work as a sailor, we separated the distance and I live in a city where we first met, for months he sailed to the country people, I just can not help longing I him that far away, almost every night I can only cry because he misses, until one day the woman had come to disturb our relationship, and one long-distance relationship factor aq can not say anything at this time, I can only pray I hope the man who loved her back to me. And we can continue to perform the wedding we have planned.
    Like this song, I can only speak to the moon and the stars about everything I feel today.

    I fell in love with a guy whom I've only known and been with for over 2 weeks. He seems to perfect for me, I love him enough that I could give up everything I ever have just to be with him. We had to part ways because he work from the countryside while I live in the city. Everynight, I would look up the sky and think that we were just under the same sky seeing the same stars and moon and wishing he is thinks of me too. Right now, he already found himself a new one and I know he is happy now. While I'm still left in the past, loving him and wishing he remebers me at least every once in a while.

    It suit for a long distance relationship or distant love. For some reason, talking to the moon, will eases the longings, coz deep in your heart, despite of the distance, your loved one is in the other corner. It comforts and give hopes that you both are living under in one moon, and while your talking to the moon, you never know, shes doing the same in same time and just let the moon do the talk directly to your hearts.
