No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2016
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...

"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.

I think "Dark Side" is about just being you (the dark). Because some people are afraid of the dark,and some people are afraid to be themselves,so I think the light is suppose to be representing a cover some peoople put on to hide who they really are. "Let go of the light fall into the darkside" is saying,stop hiding yourself with a cover (the light) and be you. At the beginning when it says "we're not in love we share no stories" that could be saying that this song was meant for anyone, anyone at all, anyone who was hiding themselves.

It’s about forbidden love. Probably about two people who probably have their own lives meet and fall in love. Going into the dark side is the temptation they both feel but know is wrong.

I feel like the lines "we're running out of time" and "don't wait for truth to come and blind us, let's just believe their lies" are about the lowkey feeling of doom lots of kids and younger grown ups have. Might as well give into the darkside and believe their lies, and live while you can. My kids feel like the world's coming apart and so many powerful grown ups (eg politicians) really don't care. This is like escapism. This interpretation was made by my 11yo daughter and me and it's just our interpretation, you can have your own.

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)

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! :)

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.

Darkside lyrics by Alan Walker, I think the video explained the intepretation of this song.

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.
