"Behind The Moon" as written by and Matthew Albert Costa....
I would shine just like a million suns if you'd just love me baby
I'll be in your life again so baby, baby just say maybe

Now here I come
To dance around the sun
I've been oh so blue
Stuck behind the moon
Now let me in
Back where we begin
And let me hold you like the way
I used to do

All the stars point me to you and lately they just drive me crazy
A universe can be so cruel so baby, baby be my lady

Now here I come
To dance around the sun
I've been oh so blue
Stuck behind the moon
Now let me in
Back where we begin
And let me hold you like the way
I used to do

I would shine just like a million suns if you'd just love me baby
I'll be in your life again so baby, baby just say maybe

Now here I come
To dance around the sun
I've been oh so blue
Stuck behind the moon
Now let me in
Back where we begin
And let me hold you like the way

Now let me hold you like the way...
Now let me hold you like the way...
Now let me hold you like the way...

I used to do
I used to do
I used to do
I used to do

    General Commenti love being first to comment! i dunno how i feel about this guy, cos my daddy loves him, and he likes katie melua! eek. this guy to me is a slightly improved jack johnson clone, and these guys seem to be flooding the market, james blunt, jack johnson, daniel powter, matt costa, etc. but i genuinely like this song, strangely enough, esp considering the other music i like

    General CommentMatt Costa is great. This is one of his very many different styles of music on one album. He would sound similar to Jack Johnson as he is on Jacks record label. Also people like Jack aren't "flooding the market" as Jack Johnson has been around for years. But this track is really good.

    General Commentyeah I don't think they're flooding the market either. for example matt costa, jack johnson, and g.love are all on the same record and are a bit similar, but each has their own distinct personality. and daniel powter would never even be allowed to step one foot in their studio, so I don't know why you're comparing them

    anyway to the song, I think it's about how he likes this girl and he feels they were destined to be with eachother or something like that, but she's not really interested.

    matt costa has a nice way of putting things like this. he sort of uses metaphors, but not hard ones just nice ones

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who broke up with a girl because he has issues he needed to solved.. that's why he's behind the moon. But he dealt with all the problems and now he's ready to be a man for the girl and he's asking her for another chance... --

    Now let me in
    Back where we begin
    And let me hold you like the way
    I used to do

    General Commentyou know to me i think this song is about a guy and a girl who just never really got together, in return making him sad, and now after some time he is trying to convince her to be with her, because he has never lost his passion for her and thinks they were meant for each other

    General CommentIt's desperately wanting the chance to be with someone; knowing how much your life will be brightened and amplified in happiness if they let you into their world.


    "All the stars point me to you and lately they just drive me crazy
    A universe can be so cruel so baby, baby be my lady"

    At night, I look to the stars to think out my life, just break down every aspect, unwind from the day, and refocus for tomorrow. However, lately clarity can't be found in the sparkling sky as each star reflects my longing thoughts for you. Staring up through our window to the universe as it shines infinitely with desire, can drive a hopeful man crazy...
