The Moon was the Romanian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2000, performed in English, by Taxi. This was the first Romanian entry not to feature any lyrics in Romanian.

The song is a ballad which gains in tempo as it develops. Lead singer Dan Teodorescu addresses his lover, telling her that she has been able to look into his soul and find the humanity within it. He sings that as a result, "the wind is playing with the starts of my night" and "the moon is playing on and on and on with my heart". Musically, the song is accentuated by pan pipes, played by Georgiana Pană.

The song was performed sixth on the night (following France's Sofia Mestari with "On Aura Le Ciel" and before Malta's Claudette Pace with "Desire"). At the close of voting, it had received 25 points, placing 17th out of 24, Romania's best result at the time. The result was not, however, good enough to qualify Romania for the 2001 Contest.

As a "passive participant" (a country broadcasting but not entering that year's Contest), Romania was re-admitted in 2002. Thus, the song was succeeded as Romanian representative at the 2002 Contest by Monica Anghel and Marcel Pavel with "Tell Me Why".

Lyrics

I knew it all from the start
I knew you'll rise above my world, a little sun warming my heart
I betrayed myself, I knew I lied
You've searched into my soul to find love
And found me hiding deep inside
You did see a way to set me free

Now I hear when the wind is playing with the stars of my night
Simply 'cause I have you near
Now I feel when the moon is playing on and on and on with my heart
Simply 'cause your love is real
Oh...

I knew it all, I understood
I simply blinked and let the light give me reasons to be good
You did see a way to set me free

Now I hear when the wind is playing with the stars of my night
Simply 'cause I have you near
Now I feel when the moon is playing on and on and on with my heart
Simply 'cause your love is real
Oh...

Yes, I feel when the moon is playing
Oh...

Now I hear how the wind is playing with the stars of my night
Simply 'cause I have you near
Now I feel when the moon is playing on and on and on with my heart
Simply 'cause your love is real
Oh...
Oh...[1]
