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...

Dark Side is about I quote this "The light might be someone not being who they want to be and just force themselves to do something they dont like because when you look at the world in day time there is more light than darkness because nobody wants to be noticed all the time especially now because of bullying and also cyberbullying and the darkness is the hidden talent or where the hidden talent is hidden because when we think about deep places like caves it is really dark and normally you have to have a light to see and most people when they hide things they put it in dark places to make it somewhat invisible and you have to jump into it to find it like how i found my hidden talent of singing by just going out of my comfort zone (the light) and trying something new ( the darkness) when people cover themselves up using the light (the thing you dont wanna do) you just think that " i dont love doing this" and in the lyrics it has "were not in love we share no stories" which means exactly what i said earlier but it could also just be someone that thinks that light is always good and another person telling him/her to not "judge a book by its cover" and go to the darkness to find out that everything is equal and that nothing is out of place" but also it is about people hiding who they really are and just not having the freedom to be themselves

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.

Darkside I think being you
...while we still young and... Find what you love and do it now. Don't be afraid of being in the Darkside where people might leave you because you don't fit the trend
"We're not in love,we share no stories just something I our eyes" There are people you connect with,not because they are your type or socially acceptable. But those person's love you as you are, accepts your Darkside.

I think this is something like two lovers who's states or something or at war with each other are forbidden to be together, and one is trying to switch sides. It's just the first thing that came to mind, other than Darth Vader from Star Wars. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I think Darkside means like someone is in love with someone else but dosen't want to admit it to the other person "We're not in love we share stories just something n your eyes" like their expressing it but like in a certain way. Also, I think Darkside also means like people they have such a beautiful personality but they hide it like my talent is singing and drawing and that's been hidden for a long time but then they express it later... For Example: "Let go of the light fall in to the DARKSIDE" in other words "Stop trying to be someone else and stop trying to be perfect by letting go of the light and express yourself an fall into the Darkside" you don't have to agree but at least you understand... :D XD UwU OwO OoO :p

I believe darkside means that this person is depressed and just wants to die. they want to stop acting like they're happy and love they're life (the light) and they just want to be who they wanna be (darkside). but it seems this person is in love with someone else but he doesn't want to show it. (we're not in love/we share no stories) and maybe this other person is just as depressed as he is and want to go down together (let go of the light, fall into the darkside/let's leave the world behind) and they want to do this before time runs out (while we're still young and fearless)

Darkside is a really good song ans inspires me to not go into the darkside and to not be afraid of anything i don't know if that the point of the song but that's my opinion I LOVE YOU Alan WALKER.

I would say is it dark side is a broken love story between two starcrossed lovers. They want each other but they’re finding it hard to get each other because of the conflict between their families. They know the only way to escape is to Leave into the darkness, another words fall into the Darkside. I bet it got it like really wrong but even if I did I don’t care

I think this means that if you can't handle people anymore,(the light)
You should spend time alone if you want or if you like that (the Darkside)

I think it's talking about people or persons who are into toxic relationship,or stuffs like that but don't wanna leave because of some benefits they are enjoying, even when the dangers is staring them in the face.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

Two people who don't really believe in love.. Or rather confused about it.. But they have some kind of feelings towards each other.. They believe the truth is that "love is a lie"... But they just want to believe the world's lies... Cause they feel something... She wants to live it.. She is confused about love's existence.when light falls on their relationship they no there is nothing called love. So she wants to fall into the dark side with him.
I hope you won't get confused

I think its simply means being inlove with som1 n u tend to sacrifice everything u have just to see that person happy but things become complicated as the society disrespect their relationship even the family members disagrees to that.so the only solution is to be far from that very society n find a shelter somewhere else where they'll value n respect their relationship as they ll b ready to face any problem so long as their happily together.

I cannot be the only one who thinks about drugs. I've been told that being in the dark sides means being on drugs. Basically, person 1 is convincing person 2 to do drugs. Just think about it.

I think the light is a group of people that live in the normal world and the dark is the group of people who live in secret. I think the light group and the dark group want to work together or join. I think the two people in front are the leaders and they joined together.

As I think this is about a love story between a young girl & young boy. But it is rejected by the society or culture for a reason.They love each other but can't express for a reason.(we are not in love, just something in your eyes) One person tell other one to don't think about them we can handle this & join me. ( lets leave the world behind/ we'll live on the darkside) Darkside is a situation where they are not accepted in society.( don't wait for truth to come & blind us.lets just believe their lies) Though it is rejected by the society that person thinks its right according to his point of view. He/she makes other person to think of it ( believe it/ I see it / i know that you can feel it ) He/ she invites other person to make that decision though other persons think it is wrong & while they have strength to fight for it if they have to. (While we're still young & fearless). So lets make that decision..let go of the light fall into the darkside

My interpretation is someone (person a) loves someone (person b) but is in “the dark”. person a doesn’t share anything with person b, but is telling them not to be afraid as they have been in the dark for a bit and fears person b will get scared and run away. The “take me through the night” part is person b telling person a that they want to be in the dark with them, and be in love with them while they are still young and have no regrets. The “beneath the sky, as black as diamonds, we’re running out of time” is person a thinking that person b will start to get tired of being in the dark all the time because others are telling person b that the dark is not a good place to be. Truth being the dark is a good place to be in a way, but person a is scared and telling person b to just believe that they shouldn’t be in the dark because it will hurt them. The “believe it, I see it, I know that you can feel it” is person b telling person a they know that person a likes the darkness and doesn’t want to leave, and taunts the other people telling them not to be in the dark in a way by saying “fool me like I’m dreaming” because there are “no secrets worth keeping about the dark.
I know how that sounds, but that’s just my interpretation. You don’t have to agree.
