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 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.

    It's about someone who is going through an emotional pain because of the absence of his/her loved one.
    The person is is not so sure of the person (loved one) coming back but is still waiting and hoping for his/her return
    It's about love and care

    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 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

    I lost my mother when I was 10 years old, I'm 16 now. She died from cancer. When I saw the lyrics of this song I could only think about it. Sometimes at night, I just keep looking through my room's window crying and wishing she could hear and talk to me, I miss her a lot. It' difficult, it's a pain that will never stop hurting. But we have to keep going, and if you're passing through difficult moments, don't worry! I understand you more than you can imagine. Things will get better, and never forget that God loves you, an that he knows what is better to us. S2

    I really don't know what this song is about but, When I first heard this, it was when I was with my aunt in the car, she would sing it so loud and emotionally, I would just be like "calm down, it's just a song" but recently I was just going to youtube and decided to hear it, And there I was crying, because I could relate to it Why? well, it was because there was a time where I didn't want to live anymore, I just thought my life had no sense, and I just felt lonely, but then I met this kid on Instagram, We became really good friends, he was there when I needed him, and I was there when he needed me. There was this time where I started feeling something for him, but I just thought it was just something temporary, so I didn't really pay much attention to it. But after a lot of time, maybe months or a year, Out of nowhere I realized what I did feel, we started going out, and literally, I started feeling much better about myself, I would smile more. What I felt was something that I can't explain, I fell deeply in love with that boy, he was just different, but one day, I got separated from him, cuz he was from another country, I couldn't even say bye to him, my mother thought it wasn't safe for me to talk to strangers, but she didn't understand, he wasn't a stranger, he was the one that saved me from suicide, the one that taught me how to love myself, he would remind me every single day, that I was beautiful, that I was important, that I am stronger than I think. But as I said, she didn't and doesn't understand. she told other people about me talking to him and invented these stories about it, and now everybody looks at me like if I was a weirdo and thinks I am crazy because of it. At night I look out the window and look at the sky, I talk to it as if the kid was also looking at it, and hearing what I'm saying, I just want that kid back, he was everything I had. I just hope he meets someone who can love him more than what I did, someone...that is better than me, because that is what he deserves, someone that can make him happy, maybe more than what I was able to do. I just hope that kid is doing good, that he is eating well, and is sleeping more. (lmao I said a lot, hopefully, you guys understand what I said.

    I love this song especially because it helps me cope with my recent breakup. I think that Bruno is talking about a girl he loved and he wants to talk to her but can't find the courage and/or can't talk to her.

    I think its about someone he can't be with anymore. I don't think it's about his mother because his mother died in 2013. And this song is made in 2010. So probably a break up or something.

    It's a very emotional song, that I honestly fell in love with the first time I heard it because I relate to is so much. My grandpa passed away last may, I talk to the moon hoping he can hear me and is talking back. I really miss him, and it hurts I didn't get to say goodbye. I wasn't able to see him for over 8 years. But the day he passed away my older sister called me and told me the news, though I already knew he wasn't doing too well. He was a great man, i'll never forget him.
