"Life On The Moon" as written by Espen Lind, Amund Bjorklund, Zachary Maloy and David Cook....
Here in this crowd I'm feeling all alone
Turn me around and point me back to home
I'm getting lost more everyday
And I can't tear myself away
From the stars in my eyes with no light

Here are my terms, have some faith in me
And I'll let you be who you need to be

[Chorus]
Life on the moon, could it be any stranger?
Life on the moon, wouldn't feel as far away?
The life that I knew is through
And I'm gonna need you more than ever
I'm alone in this crowded room
It's like life on the moon

Flown off the ground my head's up in the air
Self conscious to a fault with other people everywhere
It's getting harder every night, to take the punches left and right
Just to know that you are here by my side

Here are my terms, have some faith in me
And I'll let you be who you need to be

[Chorus]

Getting lost in my own atmosphere
Stars in the sky all the stars in my eyes
Is the cost of getting out of here alive

[Chorus]

Life on the moon
The life that I knew
It's through
And I'm gonna need you more than ever
I'm alone in this crowded room
It's like life on the moon.
Life on the moon.

    General CommentAhhh one of my faves on David's self titled! The lyrics are great, the concept of life on the moon. Really made me say 'hmm' aloud. It's a fantastic song.

    I think the song is about a shaky relationship. Maybe him becoming famous changed things a lot? He still feels he needs her now that he IS famous and show business is like 'life on the moon' meaning it's very out of this world for him. He feels he needs her to keep steady from the pressures of being a pro musician and she can still do what she wants because he simply just wants her support.
