“To the Moon and Back” is a song by Australian pop duo Savage Garden. It was released in Australia on 4 November 1996 as the second single from their self-titled 1997 album. It was the follow up to their hit “I Want You”. It won the 1997 ARIA Music Award for Song of the Year. The song became a Top 3 hit on the UK Singles Chart, and a Top 25 hit on the US Billboard Hot 100, and was also the band’s first number one in their native country.
In an interview with Apple Music about their debut album, singer Darren Hayes explained the origins of the song.
“I was a big science fiction fan – I loved Blade Runner. I wrote it from that point of view, or the idea of what it means to be human. That idea of yearning to express your emotions and your feelings and for that to be legitimized. There was also someone in my life whose persona was very standoffish and who pushed everyone who loved her away. But I could see underneath that hard shell, there was so much pain and all that stuff that I identified with – mum never loved her much, daddy never kept in touch, these are things actually bothering this person.”
I barely remember part of two dreams from last night with the first dream being like a movie/film, and it was about a young man who looked a bit like the actor Zac Efron.
The young man was a big fan of a famous young woman who was probably a pop music star and/or actress or something like that, he was such a fan that he signed up for a special bodyguard/security guard training program to become one of her bodyguards/security guards, and this special bodyguard/security guard training program was ran by the manager of the young woman & some of the bodyguard/security guards of the young woman.
The young man probably had to pay for the training program, and he left to the training center which was like military boot camp where you had to stay/live there until you pass the training; and the training center was located in the wilderness near a quiet country road.
All of the trainees probably had to sign confidentiality agreements and other restrictive agreements, and they had to follow orders like soldiers/et cetera; and so the young man began his training, but I can not remember how many days/weeks/months were shown in the dream or passed in the dream.
The famous young woman’s manager could be seen at the training center sometimes, and he was a very mean/untrustworthy/unlikable/et cetera person (scumbag is a word that could be used to describe him); and he was a somewhat overweight & ugly man with whitish colored skin with brownish colored hair who usually wore a whitish colored/light-colored suit with dress shoes, and he always had bodyguards with him.
His main bodyguard was played by the actor Bruce Willis, who had blondish colored hair in a hair style similar to Ivan Drago from the film Rocky IV, Mr. Willis’s character probably also helped oversee the training at the training center, and he seemed like he was a former military special forces soldier & his character seemed like a good guy compared to a lot of the people at the training center.
The manager was very mean to the famous young woman, he treated her badly, and he was probably taking advantage of her; and in the dream sometimes you saw or heard evidence of this and/or the manager himself would brag about it.
At some point the young man got tired of seeing & hearing about how the manager treated the famous young woman, and so he confronted the manager about it; and an argument started, and the manager ordered his bodyguards to probably beat up the young man or worse but Mr. Willis’s character tried to talk him out of it.
I am not sure what happened exactly, I just know that the manager went to his helicopter, and I remember Mr. Willis’s character looking unhappy; but that is all that I can remember.
The second dream started with me arriving in my parent’s yard & my parent’s arrived shortly after me during the day, and I walked toward the back door noticing several fictional young men with dark brownish colored skin with short black colored hair who lived in the neighborhood leaving out of my parent’s house with one or more metal baseball bats & something else; and they looked & acted like they had just stolen something out of my parent’s house and/or attacked someone, and they even were talking about it as they ran off.
I ran into the house and I found my brother CC, he said that the young men had stolen something & maybe attacked something/someone and/or him, and then my parent’s walked into the house with a woman with whitish colored skin with brownish colored hair in a ponytail wearing a bluish colored tennis shirt with tan-colored pants; and we told them what had happened & the woman said that she was a police officer, and then we went to see which direction the young men ran.
We saw them run in front of a house on the street where MZ Church is and so we ran after them, and it seemed that they went into one of the houses; and so the woman/police officer went inside the house alone, which I did not think was a good idea but she told us to wait, and so we waited outside.
We waited a while but no one came outside and so I started to get worried, I told my parent’s to call for more police to come, and then my brother CC & I were about to go inside the house to see if the woman was okay; but I woke up.
