Darkside Lyrics

[Verse 1: Tomine Harket]
I’m not alone
We share those stories
Just something in your eyes
Don’t be afraid
The shadow’s roaming
Let’s leave the world behind

[Pre-Chorus: Tomine Harket]
Take me through the night
Fall in to the...

    I believe the meaning is relative to who will interpret the song.

    What I'm suggesting is please to clarify the meaning by the author of lyrics.

    So miss interpretation can be avoid by our new generation and can give them understanding to positive mindset and to the way it should be.

    We should not give up no matter how hard the situation is. We can live on the darkside. We don’t need the light. We’re the only thing that can light up our life. Just feel like you’re a bright star shining alone in the dark sky!!! Hey

    It is About two groups with the same goal but the groups are total opposite of the other group and not hostile to the others.
    so I think that the meaning is that you need to accept everyone even wen there is a love that isn’t acceptable at the believe of the (gods) god or where you in believe.

    To me this song reveals more of a matrix
    dont wait for truth to come and blind us lets just believe the lies
    " its just like saying d truth is a lie that will never open a reality but believing the lies are far better because there's no other choice
    its a song to influence the minds of individuals to stop depending on christ or GOD instead its more fun to join the darkside the devil " and the lyrics are possesive more like a poem

    So, just be aware, because "if Evil is knocking on the door, it is beautiful and it offers you everything, what U wish". The journey to the Hell is wide and nice. It is very comfortable to close the eyes and believe in other - methaforic meaning of the song. However, the Devil is also a Father of The Lies. So - just open your eyes and get the hurtfull truth about this song go through. I am very sad for it, but it doesn't change the truth, unfortunately :-( Solution = not in my playlist. (Sorry for my poor English :-D)

    "We're not in love, we share no stories, just something in your eyes". The beginning of the song talks about how their relationship is just pure attraction. "Don't be afraid, the shadows know me, let's leave the world behind". This part refers to how they shouldn't worry about what the rest of the world thinks and just enjoy the night. "Take me through the night, fall into the darkside." She wants someone to "take her" all through the night, and not worry about the aftermath. "I see it, let's feel it, while we're still young and fearless". This part refers to how they should still have fun while they are still young and not to worry about it, hence fearless. "Don't wait for truth to come and blind us, let's just believe the lies." She saying that it's ok to just enjoy the night for what it is, whether its a lie or not. "So fool me like I'm dreaming." She doesn't care what his situation in life is, just make her believe that this moment is real.

    As a mother of a pre-teen that is absolutely digging this song, my immediate and still interpretation of this song is death. I havent seen the video and in some ways am not visual. I am disturbed by the lyrics. Like the beat tempo and tune. But again the lyrics have me leaning to someone thinking of self harm and this is what's going on in their head.

    Okay, when dark side came out I was like "cool! Walker has a new song" but, when I watched it and listened to it I felt like it was trying to tell people that it was good to become bad. I mean the lyrics for it in my opinion felt evil like the devil trying to get us through this song
    I don't like the lyrics I wish we could change them into something better because I like the tune not the words.

    I deal that many people dislike the lyrics of this song because of its portrayal of ‘darkness’. Many people think that the light represents goodness and therefor the song is telling you to give in to being evil. However I think of the light representing the norm, the darkness representing individuality and change. Overall the song telling you to be individual and being being different like how the song is portraying light as the negative.

    I don't really understand what the "w" like symbol is in the video, but I feel like they are trying to portray some type of rebellion against the norm. If it is between "lovers" who say they are "not in love" it is clearly a call to impulsive passion. I only listen to the instrumental cello version of this song because I feel like the words and actions portrayed in the video are evil and I do not want to listen to those types of ideas. The video makes me think of the devil trying to deceive. I want the Light! :)

    I think that this song has more religeous meaning than other meanings .. It mean that you let us live whereever and however we want ..don't tell us how to live .. It talk about religion when it say " beneath the sky they come and blind us " because all the religions are sky origin.. I hate this song ..they made us feel like animals. . no rules no principes .

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think it's about technology like for example a couple who focus on their phone while waiting for their food instead of talking they were so focus on each phone. Those children who choose playing console instead of playing outside. Something to that.

    The seductress is asking her object of affection for a one night stand. The object of her affection is a stranger, there is no love between them. She says let go of the morality (light) and fall in to the darkside of pure passion.

    My entire life, I have believed good people would eventually, have good things in life. People who were inconsiderate of others, taking advantage,or,ungrateful, would eventually have less. I am 57. Twice during my life, I should have died, according to the doctors. I believed there was a reason. I had a purpose to fulfill. My entire life has been extremely stressful. I would pick myself up, only to get knocked down. I assumed it was a test of faith. I have noticed,selfish,ungrateful,people, who would take and not care how their actions affected others, seem to be put on a pedestal,have amazing happy lives. I started doubting my beliefs, and begging the universe to help me understand. In two days I will be homeless. I was trying to enjoy the time,and not think about what would happen once I walked outside my home, with nowhere to go. While packing,this song and video came on. I was in disbelief, and had a panic attack. Hearing it made me feel like I was a fool, and being laughed at. Just my personal opinion. If there was ever a time to seize the light, now would be the time. The world, and people, seem strangely chaotic. I wish everyone reading this, peace,love,happiness,and, LIGHT.
