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.

I think it is about facing the dark side of our society fearlessly (especially for Youngs). A few time in dark makes you stronger.It always motivates me to get out of light and experience the difficulties of darkness, which may help in the long run. Like coming out of the comfort zone, working like the hell and at last achieve the thing passing through the dark side.
I mean song is call people "fall into the darkside", and I now on the darkside:)
Song is about two young people that want "leave the world behind" and "fall into the darkside". Thay want do it's now, not tomorrow "we're running out of time" and we know that no one lied they "to come and blind us, lets just believe their lies". They wanna do this "believe it, I see it, I know that you can feel it", they don't have secrets one-from-one "no secrets worth keeping". And the last one they want be on the darkside "take me through the night, fall into the darkside, we don't need the light, we'll leave on the darkside, I see it, let's feel it, were we still young and fearless, let go of the light, fall into the darkside":'|

I think the dark side is the hidden place in you where no one known except you,a shadow of you world that speak of you

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.
