Bruno Mars – Talking To The Moon lyrics

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...

    This song represents to me the death of a loved one, not being able to let go, but not being able to be with them either. And the loss and grief and coping mechanism of talking to the lost loved one. Along with not caring what the neighbours and townspeople are thinking, because he almost believes that yes he is becoming crazy. Talking to some one on the "other side" is a very painful place to be, when no one replies especially if they are "all he had".

    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 has a link in my life somehow. I am in love with a guy who lives about half an hour away from me and although it isn't far, it feels like a whole world away when you're in love. When I can't be with him, he reminds me that I don't need to be sad or worried because we are both underneath the same moon. He also taught me about the stars and on starry nights we both look up there in the sky and see those stars and they are a way of speaking to each other if we're apart as they bought us together effectively. So thanks Bruno, for making not making me feel utterly crazy for speaking to the moon as I know that there are others who talk to the moon just like I do.

    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.

    This song is a hyperbole seriously. This song is all about two couples who were miles and miles away from each other. Everynight, they are going to the windows and gaze at the clouds and then they will look at the moon. The moon is representing the piece of him/her. He/she drags his/her feelings, moments, loneliness, emptiness and sadness to the moon, the moon is very helpful for them because it can help them to ease the pain because they didn't see each other for months maybe. Every night. Before they eat, before they sleep, there's one question that'll come up in their mind. "Did he/she ate already?" "Is she/he okay?" "Does she/he still thinks about me/" yeah. One reason why, its because we care. This is what my former man and I felt then he asks for a breakup because he can't stand not being with me everyday. But this comes up in my mind, "If he love me he'll wait and understand my situation" but he didn't, Tho I want him back, it's too late because he's now crazily inlove with his new gf. My mom said its rokay to let someone go, you'll know if you're important to them or not. To that guy. Thank you for breaking my fragile heart, but remember I still love you.

    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.

    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 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.
