"Fell from the Moon" as written by and Brad Arnold....
I fell to the earth below
And I heard everyone that I know
Well it's gonna be hard
And it's gonna leave scars
Somedays were born to lose
Today, I fell from the moon

I don't know how to get back
Or how to make up for all that I lack
But I'm gonna get there and I'm not gonna be scared
I got so much to prove
Today, I fell from the moon

'Cause I, I flew above the earth some
I've danced under the warm sun
I've watched the stars light up a room
And now, I hope the heavens help me
I pray that they might let me back
But if they don't then what will I do?
Today, I fell from the moon

I don't know where I belong
Or how long they say I've been gone
But I'm gonna be strong
And try to find my way home
That's all that I can do
Today, I fell from the moon

'Cause I, I flew above the earth some
I've danced under the warm sun
I've watched the stars light up a room
And now, I hope the heavens help me
I pray that they might let me back
But if they don't then what will I do?
Today, I fell from the moon

Today, I fell from the moon

    My InterpretationFirstly, the second line is "And I hurt everyone that I know" (it's available on the official 3 Doors Down website).

    Personally I find that the lyrics really shine in the verses, here's my interpretation:
    The moon represents a previous state of mind of the writer, where he feels comfortable (shown by the numerous mentions of 'home' and 'heaven') and confident. I feel like this song's about the natural fluctuation of emotions (hence the reference to 'today', instead of some significant personal episode), but when you are down your friends are here for you, even if it hurts them too.

    I think the song's a bit of a bittersweet one as well, the numerous mentions of 'home and 'heaven' implies that whatever the writer's going through he does not blame it solely on himself as a person, but the situation he is in. He is hopeful that he can be himself again under the conditions, and more importantly it would be the only way to do justice to how friends are always by your side, to "prove" to them that they truly make a difference.
