Bruno Mars - Talking to the Moon

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
...

Originally included on Bruno’s debut studio EP release It’s Better If You Don’t Understand, “Talking to the Moon” is a jazz power ballad with a stripped-down production — its instrumental is essentially composed of the sounds of drums and piano. This song is essentially about Bruno’s long-distance relationship with a girl. Bruno confessed that “Talking to the Moon” is his favorite song from the record, commenting it on Sound on Sound: “Talking To The Moon” is one of my favourite songs on the album. We only had the first verse and the horns, but we knew that it was great. We then had three different bridges and we spent a lot of time trying to find out which one was the best. Jeff Bhasker is a fantastic musician, and he helped write that track. I think we tried to arrange and produce this in four different ways, mostly trying to figure out what kind of drums to put on.
