"I Know You're Out There Somewhere" is a 1988 single by the progressive rock band The Moody Blues. It was written by guitarist Justin Hayward, and it is the sequel to the Moody Blues' 1986 single "Your Wildest Dreams", also written by Hayward. Following its release as a single in May 1988, it was included as the opening track of the 1988 album Sur la Mer.

The song's lyrics continue from the lyrics of "Your Wildest Dreams". The lyrics from "Your Wildest Dreams" tell the story of a man who is remembering his first love, and wonders if she remembers him the way he remembers her. In "I Know You're Out There Somewhere", the man realizes he still loves her, and vows to "return again" to her.

As with "Your Wildest Dreams", a music video was produced for "I Know You're Out There Somewhere." The video is a direct, linear sequel to the one for "Your Wildest Dreams", and again features Janet Spencer-Turner as the character from the singer's past. Actor Ben Daniels portrays the younger version of Justin Hayward.

It was also the band's final Top 40 single in the United States, peaking at #30 on the Billboard Hot 100.
