To the Moon and Back Lyrics - Savage Garden

Review The Song (20)



She's taking time making up the reasons
To justify all the hurt inside
Guess she knows from the smiles and the look in their eyes
Everyone's got a theory about the bitter one
They're saying, "Mama never loved her much"
And, "Daddy never keeps in touch
That's why she shies away from human affection"
But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she's waiting for the right kind of pilot to come
And she'll say to him
She's sayin

Chorus
I would fly to the moon and back if you be...
If you be my baby
I've got a ticket for a world where we, we belong
sponsored links
So would you be my baby?

She can't remember a time when she felt needed
If love was red then she was color blind
All her friends, well they've been trialed for treason
In crimes that were never defined
She's saying, "Love is like a barren place,
And reaching out for human faith
It's like a journey I just don't have a map for"
So baby's gonna take a dive and
Push the shift to overdrive
Send a signal that she's hanging
All her hopes on the stars
What a pleasant dream
She's saying

Chorus
I would fly to the moon and back if you be...
If you be my baby
I've got a ticket for a world where we,we belong
So would you be my baby?

Hold on, hold on ...

Mama never loved her much
And, Daddy never keeps in touch
That's why she shies away from human affection
But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she's waiting for the right kind of pilot to come
And she'll say to him
She's saying

Chorus(2x)
I would fly to the moon and back if you be...
If you be my baby
I've got a ticket for a world where we,we belong
So would you be my baby?

I would fly to the moon and back if you be...
If you be my baby
I've got a ticket for a world where we,we belong
So would you be my baby?
yeaaaah ...

i think this song is about an isolated woman who cannot find the right guy from all the hurt and anguish so she turns to drugs - super simple interpretation; elton john's rocket man is the same - its about doing drugs and getting high - the right kind of pilot is the guy giving her drugs - the only attatchment she has to another human being for being so messed up internally - 'to justify all the hurt inside' lyric is also how many drug users see their addiction. the reasons being their family life is messed 'mumma never loved her much or daddy never keeps in touch' cuz shes such a waste of life.

anyway its a great song. the whole album was awesome
and yes they do understand women - even though darren hayes is outta the closet, maybe he was her in teh story.

feel like i AM the girl in the song... always hoping... but unable to connect, but always wanting to more than anything... always alone... perhaps someday 'my pilot will come' maybe i will be one of the lucky ones... i have always loved Savage Garden... but this will always be my favorite song... it gives me hope when i have none :)



whao! | Reviewer: bl4ckthorn | 9/6/10

ive heard of this song from long time ago, when i wa s young and wholly naive about things around me. Yet something in this song that drives me out of my sanity and ive felt like traveling to other time, to other place.. i must say this is truly an amzing song, and this will always be my fave... praise to the SAVAGE GARDEN.. they have a way in their songs...



Meaning | Reviewer: Bex0706 | 7/9/10

I've always loved this song, but as I've gotten older, I feel like he may have been spying on my life, and I honestly would hope that no one ever feels the way the girl in this song does. When I read the lyrics, it's about a girl who is unhappy with her life and has problems connecting with people (even on a basic friend level) because she just doesn't know how to ... and yet through all of that, she still hopes someday someone will come along that she'll be able to connect with and help change her life.



SAVAGE GARDEN ROCKS!!! | Reviewer: SARA | 5/27/10

I HEARD THIS SONG WHEN I WAS EIGHT OR NINE YEARS OLD AND I LIKED THIS SONG BACK THEN.NOW THAT I REALLY UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF THE WORDS I LIKE IT EVEN MORE.......THEY REALLY UNDERSTAND WOMEN EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE MEN.

I love this song like hell...I dunno why but every time I listen to it, I'm transported to a different world...almost the same one the song talks about...lovely song...it's so rife with meaning...yet so touching...whenever I feel lonely or let down, I listen to it...and each time, it heals my wounds like some sort of panacea...the greatest SG song ever.



my favourite song | Reviewer: Rachel | 12/28/09

every verse, every line, every word is true to my life and my feelings for my first, and only, love. it still manages to make me cry. I listen to it at least every day :)
it means the world to me.

with me since childhood | Reviewer: cami | 10/30/08

Basically the title says it all. I remember this song from about seven years ago. It's meaningful like 99.99999% of Savage Garden's songs. I wish they hadn't broken up though :( They're about the only pop I've ever listened to. Ever. I still listen to them even though I've moved on to harder/darker stuff. I don't think I'll ever stop listening to them, because their songs created so many memories for me.



Amazing | Reviewer: Kelsie | 7/10/08

I love this song so much :) Its so beautiful and anybody can relate to this song. I may be young compared to some of the people in here but i would just love to say this is one of my favourite songs of all time! Has real meaning!
