Talking to the Moon
Bruno Mars Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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
Tryna 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

Oh

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, oh

At night when the stars
Light up my room
I sit by myself
Talking to the moon
Tryna 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

(Ah, ah, ah)

Do you ever hear me calling?
(Ah) Oh-oh-oh
(Ah) Oh-oh-oh
(Ah)
'Cause every night
I'm talking to the moon
Still tryna 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, oh

I know you're somewhere out there
Somewhere far away

Overall Meaning

In Bruno Mars's song Talking to the Moon, he expresses his deep yearning for his loved one who is far away, he longs to have her back. Bruno acknowledges that his neighbors may perceive him as crazy because he spends his time talking to the moon, but he only does it because he misses and loves his significant other so much. Mars feels like he has gone mad since he cannot belong to anyone else but this person he is talking to the moon about, and he knows that the sun going down means there is someone else talking back. Despite all the odds, everything comes back to Brunos's heart seeking his lover's. He is unsure whether he is just wasting his energy by talking to the moon, but he does it anyway in the hopes of reaching his loved one on the other side who may be talking to him too.
