My long lost relatives have been out of touch with me for twenty six years!
It can also mean that you are far off on a particular subject or lacking information.
The governor's speech was out of touch on the most important issues for our community.
beyond me means too much for me to inderstand, there is no way I can understand something, too much for my knowledge or experience.
